AMD, Razer Want To Standardize External GPUs

Following the announcement of the Razer Core earlier this year, AMD is throwing their hat into the ring by announcing their interest in developing a standardized external GPU interface.

Gamers today mostly have to choose between ultraportable systems with lower-end graphics or larger desktop-replacement class hardware. There are a handful of 15-inch laptops that attempt to straddle this divide, but reviews show that they tend to run hot and noisy آ— an unavoidable consequence of their configurations. AMD has a plan to solve this problem through the use of a standardized external GPU interface that would allow customers to attach a desktop graphics card via an external chassis.
