AMD May Bring External R600's To Laptops
For a college student like me who needs a laptop for school, the possibility of being able to plug a external graphics card into my ASUS W3J for playing games is awesome. Graphics power for a long time has been one of the limiting factors when it comes to laptops but AMD may have a new product to remedy the situation. AMD's Lasso, the codename of the external graphics card based on ATI's 600 series, is currently under development and may bring some newfound graphics muscle to the laptop scene. While the card may be primarily intended for use with desktops, it will also be useable with laptops featuring PCIe x8 and x16 connections.
