Ultimate Graphics Power, Unleashed.
In 2007, ASUS introduced XG Station, an external graphics solution that let laptops achieve cutting-edge gaming performance by tapping into potent desktop graphics cards. Continuing this trend of innovation, the all-new ROG XG Station 2 is a plug-and-play external graphics card dock that turns a Thunderbolt 3-enabled notebook or 2-in-1 PC into a VR-ready gaming powerhouse.
Enjoy VR Gaming and Portability
Inserting a graphics card into ROG XG Station 2 is easy, and you can quickly connect to your Thunderbolt 3-enabled notebook or 2-in-1 PC to create a powerful, VR-ready gaming machine. Experience an incredible new level of gaming performance without sacrificing your notebook's portability.
Upgraded Gaming Performance
With ROG XG Station 2, you can enjoy upgraded gaming performance that's even better than dedicated gaming laptops and many desktop PCs.
The Speed You Need
Thunderbolt 3 transfers data up to 8X faster than USB 3.0 and offers 4X the video bandwidth of HDMI 1.4. It also supplies power to your devices, so you can enjoy desktop-grade performance with demanding tasks like gaming and 4K video editing.
Present Perfect. Future Ready.
Easily upgrade to the best gaming performance with current and upcoming NVIDIA GeForce GTX 9/10 series and AMD Radeon R9/RX series graphics cards. ROG XG Station 2 supports full-length desktop graphics cards with coolers up to 2.5 slots wide, letting you choose from a broad range of options to suit your needs.
Plug and Play
ROG XG Station 2 can be connected or disconnected from your notebook or 2-in-1 PC without restarting. It provides 4 USB 3.0 ports and 1 Gigabit Ethernet port for simultaneous keyboard, mouse, VR headset, monitor, and internet connectivity. When connected with both a Thunderbolt 3 and USB Type-B cable, ROG XG Station 2 uses an additional USB signal channel to deliver 2X faster random read speeds and 1.8X faster write speeds than with a Thunderbolt 3 connection alone.

Powerful Yet Efficient
The internal power supply provides up to 500W to a high-performance graphics card and up to 100W to your notebook or 2-in-1 PC via Thunderbolt™ 3, eliminating the need for a separate power cable to help keep your system tidy. With 80 Plus Gold certification, ROG XG Station 2's power supply is up to 90% energy efficient, reducing electricity use and operating costs.
