    I like the sound of the ATI XGP. About time too!
    Perfect for creating an ultraportable that can game :)

    Now that's what I call the ultimate machine.

    AMEN AMD a product that makes sense.

    I like the idea.

    Well done AMD, you've designed something that might be in demand!

    A truly portable gaming system would be brill. I'm tired of "desktop replacements" that weigh as much as my PC.

    After a frankly awful couple of years for AMD they really are starting to produce some great products.

    ATI XGP Technology = eXternal Graphics Platform.
    Basicaly we have PCI-E 2.0 external connection to external graphic card getting up to 4GB/s in each direction transfer. Full Pci-e 16x.

    http://www.amd.com/us-en/Corporate/VirtualPressRoom/0,,51_104_543~126234,00.html

    Which means you have your little laptop all around with 780G (or optional with a 3000 series in addition inside).
    And when you go home, plug what ever they produce for external gfx card. 3870X2 etc. We might even see 4870 X4 (or more haha) to be used like that. The size, colling or power is not a problem any more :) Stick the gfx outside the house for cooling haha.

    I forcee some new market growing here.

    Fixed: There are only two companies in the world that can build and deliver high-performance microprocessors and there are only two companies in the world that can build and deliver high-performance graphics solutions. AMD hasn't done either for years.

    Awesome, I've been waiting for someone to make a proper external graphics card solution for years. ATI XGP sounds perfect for my needs. I get work to buy me a nice little laptop that handles my day to day work, then I buy an external graphics card and monitor to keep at home. Work at work, games at home, no need to buy another PC. Company saves money, I save money, every one's a winner.

    Congrats AMD, I'll keep my eye out for this.
