Default ASUS ROG XG Station officially announced

ASUS has finally decided to officially announce its ROG XG Station. Back when it was first introduced and showcased, the XG Station was packing a Geforce 7900GS, but today when it is officially announced, the new ROG XG Station packs a bit more punch with Geforce 8600GT with 256MB of memory.

ROG XG Station has a rather attractive black case with an LCD that shows real time info about GPU frequency, temperature, fan speed and current FPS number. The new XG Station comes with dual PCI-Express x1 slots which theoretically supports SLI. With PCI-E x1 slots SLI will probably end up highly crippled, so it will probably stay as a theoretical solution.

What punch are we talking about? 8600 GT is pretty much on par with 7900GS performance wise

most entry level gaming laptops come with 8600 M GT or higher, so what good is an external mid/low-level VGA card
