AMD looking to standardize external GPUs

It looks like AMD may be looking into the development of external graphics cards with hopes on standardizing the technology. External GPUs have been floating around for a while though quite a few PC makers like Alienware, Razer and MSI have jumped on board with their own external GPU solutions over the last year.

From the Facebook post listed in article.

Alright, let's have some Real Talk™ about gaming on the go. Gaming notebooks are great for gaming, but nobody in their right mind wants to carry one all the time. Ultrathin notebooks are awesome to carry, but nobody in their right mind would confuse one for a gaming notebook.
But there's still a HUGE appetite for thin notebooks that can game. I also bet there's a bunch of gamers out there who, as they get into their 30s and 40s, wouldn't mind condensing their entire computing life down into one device that does it all. I ALSO bet that some people wouldn't mind giving up an mITX LAN rig if their notebook had the potential to serve that role with gusto.
External GPUs are the answer. External GPUs with standardized connectors, cables, drivers, plug'n'play, OS support, etc.
More info very soon. :)
