If you happen to have a high-performing laptop
that lacks a powerful graphics card to play all your games on, then buying an
external graphics card dock is a good option. Instead of getting yourself a new
gaming rig, you can just buy the Asus ROG XG Station 2, which is about half the
price of a good gaming laptop.
Any laptop with a Thunderbolt 3 port can make use of the dock. It supports high-powered graphics cards such as the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080, the AMD Radeon R9, and the AMD Radeon RX. This will allow you to play all the top games (as well as some VR titles) out there.
The ROG XG Station 2 features Aura RGB lightning to complement Asus' own ROG Strix graphics cards. The company has also promised that the graphics card dock will support future graphics cards. This means that we're talking up to three years before this thing goes out-of-date.The ROG XG Station 2 comes with four USB 3.0 ports and a gigabit LAN socket, so you won't run out of ports you can plug this thing into. On the whole, it comes at a standard retail price of P29,000 (for reference, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 is priced at P32,000 and an AMD Radeon R9 Ã at about P27,000).
