We’ve learned that ATI plans to reveal its external graphics card based on the RV670 chip and the product itself is codenamed Lasso. There was a lot of talk about it last year, but we guess ATI changed its mind and concept and it is ready to launch it now at the time of Puma.
We will have to disappoint many of you, as Lasso will need a custom, and yet very fast connector in order to work; and legacy notebooks that are out today won’t be able to cope with it.
Lasso will launch together with notebooks that will support this concept and it will be marketed as the right solution for the graphics performance option for future notebooks.
