December 4, 2008 Fujitsu Siemens has announced one of the first portable external graphics cards, the GraphicsBooster. Featuring an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3870 graphics card with 512MB dedicated memory and DVI-I and HDMI outputs, it's enough to turn your laptop into a quad-screen-pushing, Crysis-playing beast.
Well...it would be, if it was designed to work with anything other than Fujitsu Siemens' own Amilo Notebook Sa 3650. Which rules out a majority of the audience who might actually want one of these things. Bit of a shame, really.
