External graphics (eGPU) docks have gained more traction in recent years for people looking to add a boost of desktop graphics power to their notebooks. ASUS was already among the companies offering an eGPU option with the ROG XG Station 2. But while the ROG model was very much intended for gamers, ASUS has announced another eGPU dock that takes a decidedly more professional tact.
Called the XG Station pro, the dock is made up of an understated grey aluminum exterior that measures 4.3-inches wide and 14.8-inches long. The dock can support the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-series and AMD Radeon RX Vega cards over its 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 port, ASUS says. For cooling, the XG Station Pro is equipped with two 120mm exhaust fans that should provide a decent boost to heat management.
Also included is an additional USB Type-C port, braided cables, and RGB LEDs that work with ASUS' Aura Sync lighting system.
According to ASUS, the XG Station Pro is expected to be available for $329 later in Q1 of 2018.
