Asus Offers External Graphics Card For Notebooks


Asus has officially today announced the ROG XG Station, a VGA and multimedia docking station for notebooks.

Asus showcased the ROG XG Station for the first time at CES last year. The device is actually an external graphics card, providing the power of a dedicated 3D graphics engine to laptops.

The device is powered by an EN8600GT/HTDP/256M graphics card, running at 540MHz, while the 256MB GDDR3 on board memory is clocked at 1.4GHz.

The ROG XG Station can be connected to a notebook through an Express Card interface. It also features enhanced audio and video functions with incorporated Dolby Technology ? which encompasses Dolby Headphone, Dolby Virtual speaker, Dolby Digital Live, and Dolby Pro LogicIIx. This allows quality audio to be achieved during PC gameplay, music or video playback. The Dolby Headphone enables 5.1 surround sound through any pair of headphones, while the Dolby Virtual speaker lets users experience 5.1-channel surround sound from just two speakers. Dolby Digital Live enables users to enjoy audio from the PC or game consoles through their home theater setups, and Dolby Pro LogicIIx transforms any stereo or 5.1 channel source into 6.1 or 7.1 channel surround sounds. Furthermore, with the XG Station, real-time overclocking can be easily controlled with the ergonomic knob design for simple GPU clock speed adjustments.



It also comes with a large LED screen, displaying critical system status statistics that include system master volume, GPU clock speed, current GPU temperature, current actual Frames Per Second (FPS) and gPU fan speed indications.

A dedicated control panel lets users control the settings through a GUI based interface; and can also switch modes between the notebook screen and the external LCD monitor.

The XG Station also provides a standard PCI Express slot for additional graphics computing power for notebook computers to deliver VISTA Premium graphical performances. It also accommodates HDCP.

Lab experiments made by Asus on a notebook based on Intel 945GM and 965GM graphics connected to the XG station showed a 12 and 6.7 times faster graphics acceleration respectively.

Asus did not provide pricing details for the new product.
