Alongside the announcement of the new Transformer lineup, Asus also sneaked in a new accessory called the ROG XG Station 2 that is a external graphics card dock that connects through Thunderbolt 3. Just like the Razer Core that we saw at CES this year, Asus's graphics card dock will also unlock desktop grade graphics to laptops.

The ROG XG Stations 2 will be compatible with the new Transformer 3 and Transformer 3 Book tablets that Asus just announced and will certainly also support ROG laptops with Thunderbolt 3. Asus says that the ROG XG Station 2 will turn a laptop into a VR gaming powerhouse provided that you have the graphics card.

While, Asus has not revealed any pricing or availability yet. We do know that the ROG XG Station 2 will support both AMD and Nvidia graphics card. The graphics card dock itself will have a 680W power supply and comes with an exclusive proprietary connector that improved performance up to a further 15%.

Additionally, the dock also comes with four extra USB 3.0 ports and a network LAN port.
