The ATI XGP, or External Graphics Platform, allows a notebook that comes with integrated graphics to expand to use a discrete graphics card. In this case, a Fujitsu Siemens notebook is plugged into an external system through a PCI Express 2 connector that houses an ATI Radeon 3450 graphics card and supports as many as three displays.

After struggling to bring new desktop and server processors onto the market, Advanced Micro Devices is looking to focus on two key areas that have served the company well in the past: laptops and gaming PCs. eWEEK got a sneak peak at some of the notebooks and gaming systems built around AMD's new mobile platform and ATI graphics line, which should help AMD compete against Intel.
