What would you say about a new external video card for laptop that you could use to reach high-class graphics by connecting your notebook computer to USB-enabled devices such as TV tuners, Blu-ray players and multiple monitors?

AMD made it possible by launching the ATI External Graphics Platform Technology based on external PCI Express 2.0, which connects to the other devices via a cable supporting 4 GB/s bandwidth in both directions. One example of notebook model that can be used with this new external video card for laptop is the AMD Turion X2 Ultra notebook platform, announced by the company in the same day.

ATI XGP has multi GPU capabilities with the ATI CrossFireX technology, the PCIe 2.0 cable from Japan Aviation Electronics Industry, and the USB 2.0 high speed transfers. The device cools and powers independently.

"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."

Even I deal in laptop video cards and it was really nice information about how these can be used externally as well.
