Paired with the Flow X13, the XG Mobile eGPU brings versatility and portability. At the same time, it ensures desktop-class gaming performance and connectivity on demand.
More graphics, less to carry
ROG is a pioneer in the field of external graphics. In 2007, it introduced the very first eGPU dock: the XG Station.
Now, the new ROG XG Mobile introduces a streamlined design. It offers an innovative new way to bring desktop-class gaming performance to an ultraportable form factor.
This eGPU weighs only 1kg and measures just 29mm thickness. With that, the ROG XG Mobile is 6% the size of typical eGPUs. This is despite featuring up to a top-of-the-line GeForce RTX 3080 GPU.
Efficient vapor chamber cooling keeps the ROG XG Mobile operating at ideal temperatures despite its small enclosure. The compact vapor chamber design increases contact surface area by 54% compared to heat pipes. It maximizes thermal transfer to the heatsink fins for rapid dissipation.
The external GPU connects directly to the CPU with a custom PCIe 3.0 x8 interface that’s faster than Thunderbolt 4. The interface dedicates 63Gbps of bandwidth exclusively to graphics. It results in significantly higher performance than eGPU alternatives.
The USB link drives the XG Mobile’s multi-port hub. The hub has four USB Type-A 3.2 Gen 1 ports, a full-sized SD card slot, and a Gigabit Ethernet port. The DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0a display outputs connect directly to the external GPU.
An integrated 280W power adapter supplies the ROG XG Mobile and laptop simultaneously. Users do not need to carry a separate power brick.
