Asus Unveils External Graphics Card! - Page 3

post #21 of 35
This doesn't appeal to me at all. This can be helpful but to me, a laptop is a laptop. If I wanted crazy graphics I'll get a full rig. I'll just get the best graphics I can for laptops. This will be a last resort type of item for me if I really have to upgrade the graphics. But by that time I need to = time for a new laptop.

Ouch those frequent 10hr trips home to the UK will be so amazing if I get the 8800GTX plugged into my tablet. probably be bottlenecked to hell, but even if it can play a GF6800 it would be a far step from the Aweful 950chipset in there not. And when at home you just plug in the extra long lead and pop it in the fridge.

But you seem to be forgetting that while Firewire does have signifigantly less bandwidth that PCI-e, even the lowly and now fairly obsolete AGP bus was never used to it's full potnetial. Sure, there will be a bottleneck, but even if the card was Firewire, not SmartCard, it still will not be a huge issue. Feasibly it could use multiple connections to ease the bandwidth constrains.

The G80 rocks 8X bandwidth. Proof = big slowdowns in SLI on non dual-16x motherboards.

PCMIA slots have like 2x bandwidth... the express slots are on par with PCIx...
and firewire ports are slower then USB 2.0 slots... only by like 50mbs but its slower.

This is so ****ing awesome, im more exited for this to come out you dont even know.

Actually since Firewire 400 tops out at 50MB/s and PCIe 16x has 4GB/s of bandwidth, that means that Firewire only offers 1/80th the bandwidth. Even Firewire 800 would only offer 1/40th the bandwidth.
