    HEXUS.beans :: HEXUS Lassos ATI

    Portable computers can compete quite well against desktops in terms of performance, even at the high end, if you like your laptop heavy, but one area where they slip behind is graphics. Not any more, if ATI's lasso can deliver what we think it can.

    Any idea on a release date ? And whatever happened to the Asus one, looked pretty finished...

    If either this or the ASUS XG station really deliver and are practical, I'll ditch my gaming rig AND work machine (both desktops) for something along the lines of a Dell 9400 with an ATI X1400. The big downside of the ASUS seems to be the need for an external monitor. If there were any way to output to the laptop screen, well that would be amazing.

    This sort of thing is already out: http://www.getcatalyst.com/board_pic/pcie2exp.jpg

    but it costs waaay too much at the moment. That particular one goes in the expresscard slot in laptops.

    Well hopefully there will soon be a time when the external GPU can meaningfully improve general performance on a laptop by supplementing the CPU.
