Galaxy has been working its way around NVIDIA's 4 TMDS/2 display limitation for a while now. In April, the first pictures of two cards emerged, that used multi-monitor controllers made by IDT to multiply the number of displays a single-GPU card can handle. Here's the fruition. Galaxy displayed the GeForce 210 MDT X4 and GeForce GTX 560 Ti MDT X5, the former can drive four displays, and the latter five. Galaxy is using the IDT VMM1400, a chipset commonly found on multi-monitor hub devices. It allows the graphics card MDT graphics cards to give out multiple full-HD (1920 x 1080) display heads. The GeForce 210 MDT X4 gives out four DVI connectors, while the 560 Ti MDT X5 provides four mini HDMI and one each of DisplayPort and DVI.
