Asus XG Station

Today at CES Unveiled, we had a chance to look at Asus’ new XG Station – an external graphics card station for your laptop. The unit includes USB 2.0 ports and a Dolby headphone jack, and supports both HDCP and HDMI for all of your high-def enjoyment. You got that? You can plug your regular laptop into the XG Station, plug the XG Station into an HD monitor, then watch your screen in awe. According to Asus, “Lab experiments on a notebook based on Intel 945GM graphics connected to the XG station with an ASUS EN7900GS graphics card showed an astounding nine times increase in acceleration.”

The XG Station not only adds extra graphics, but it’s easy on the eyes with its LED information display – showing volume, clock speed, GPU temperature, Dolby status, Frames Per Second (FPS) and more.
