ATI XGP Coming To It

AMD announces ATI XGP (Fancy for External Graphics Platform) Technology, a new external PCI Express (PCIe) 2.0 graphics platform, designed to take a crack at giving Notebook users more graphical power that Desktop users have. ATI XGP is an exclusive technology that capitalizes on PCIe 2.0 to deliver enthusiast-class graphics via a connected cable to an externally powered and cooled device.

It is certainly interesting, but we are looking towards seeing how it can play out. Nano-PCI Express anyone?

I'm all about one thing: reviews that are easy to understand and make sense of.

    Tell me about it!

  2. ATI XGP is the revolution right ?

  3. External for the win….maybe

  4. I’m not too convinced on e-PCI-E

  5. Same here. PCI-E external sounds utter fail.

  6. It might work, lets see

  7. I don’t think XGP is that great. Unless you can hook up a 9800GX2 external haha. But then PSU constraints annoy it
