AMD announces ATI external graphics platform to laptop users

If you’re a laptop user, like me, you like to play the occasional game. Ok, so a lot! Most on board graphics cards are really not up to par when compared to their desktop equivalents. Which is no surprise, you just learn to live with the shortcomings of laptop computing. However ATI/AMD has announced ATI XGP™ (External Graphics Platform) Technology.

What and who now? Yes, a high powered external PCI express video card for laptop users designed to equal desktop graphic performance for every application (games). Obviously it’s an exclusive technology by AMD/ATI and aimed at enthusiast gamers. Plus it’s optimized for AMD cpu’s (um who buys a laptop with a Turion? unless you’re really cheap).

“With ATI XGP Technology, notebooks can switch between everyday computing and hard-core gaming with a simple plug-in that’s also portable enough to bring powerful 3D performance on-the-go,” said Matt Skynner, vice president of Marketing, Graphics Products Group, AMD. “This technology allows users to choose notebooks with slim, lightweight and elegant designs, yet enjoy the full performance of a traditional desktop gaming rig wherever it’s convenient.” (link)
