More ASUS XG Station Details Unveiled

At CES 2007, ASUS revealed an external graphic card "enclosure" aimed at OEMs - dubbed the XG Station. ASUS plans to bundle the XG Station with ASUS PCIe graphics cards: pricing will therefore vary depending on the bundled graphics card. The device, slated for release next month, takes advantage of a notebook's ExpressCard slot to provide a PCIe x16 slot for additional graphical processing capabilities. As well, there is a single headphone output jack on the XG Station, but no 5.1 output support. However, the XG Station supports Dolby Headphone technology for simulated six-channel surround sound audio. A control knob allows users easy overclocking controls too, limited to the GPU core clock.

The XG Station includes a large LED display to monitor vital system information:

  • System master volume
  • GPU clock speed
  • Current GPU temperature
  • Dolby® Headphone feature status
  • Current actual Frames Per Second (FPS) information
  • GPU fan speed Indicator
