    More evidence to suggest NVIDIA are just doing more of the same, only bigger and hungrier, while AMD are being much more diverse and pushing out the proverbial boat.

    Can't see it being a popular market, but that's an excellent looking device.

    excellent! - I'll definately be in the market for something like this is it becomes a standardised format.

    Its the only downside of laptops - lack of decent gfx performance without paying a fortune

    /consider ditching desktop pc

    I'm sure some other company did something similar - oh yeah Asus XG station and something similar from MSI but unfortuantely they were limited to only certain graphics cards and not the top of the range ones

    I am definately interested. Most of the time you don't need the graphics power but you could get some nice graphics card when stationary.

    lol, just asus. but yes. much talked about idea that almost happened



    we have certainly been here before. i remember looking at this as a boost for my radeon 9700m lappy. obviously the time for that to be useful has passed and its old and tired all round now, but it would be great if they actually managed to get a real useful product going this time... and not just for laptops.. for SFF's

    Am I the only one who remembers the days of laptops with docking stations? Not port replicators, but proper docking stations that could take hard drives, optical drives & of course, PCI cards.

    Re: Headlines - AMD to push Puma with eXternal Graphics Platform

    sounds like a fantatic product.
    thin and light laptop on the move
    come home connect up and play the lastest games.
    unlike the asus unit you can use the laptop's own screen to play the games.
    the issue it that when nvidia release a competeing product that ill use a different proprietary connector. so depending on what laptop you get you will be limited to eiether ati graphics card external boxes or nvdia external boxes.
