Thinking outside the box for graphics

Asus shows off first external graphics card station for laptops

While other companies are trying to cram as many functions as possible into a single device, ASUS is going in the other direction with one of its newest creations. The "XG Station" claims to be the first external graphics card unit for laptops. What does that mean? According to Fareastgizmos, lab experiments showed 9 times faster graphics acceleration. That's probably from the company's literature, but it's still an interesting idea even if the device is mistaken for a dashboard radio hooked up to your computer.
