The Desktop Series II Single Channel GPU-Xpander for Laptop from Cubix is an external PCIe slot expansion system for laptop/notebook computers. This PCIe I/O slot expansion platform is capable of hosting nVIDIA GeForce, Quadro FX or Tesla GPU cards. Instead of a PCIe x8 or x16 adapter for connecting to the host computer, the Xpander features a PCMCIA/ExpressCard 34 connector (maximum performance, per industry specification is 5 Gb/s) for laptop PCs which have an available slot for this connector.

You can install blazing-fast hardware acceleration within minutes
