    Matrox Graphics Inc. announced today the introduction of three new fanless MuraTM MPX Series video wall controller boards that build upon the line’s revolutionary design. Mura is the first PCI Express (PCIe) x16 Gen 2 board class to feature both HD resolution inputs and outputs. The new fanless SKUs make use of the same high-performance, single-slot design with 64 Gbit/sec duplex data transfer and feature four HD outputs and either zero, two, or four HD inputs for maximum I/O flexibility. The fanless Mura boards have no moving parts, helping to further increase Matrox’s industry-leading reliability. With the ability to create quieter systems and a jump to three-year warranties, Matrox expects a relatively quick OEM adoption of these new Mura cards.

    Mura boards can be scaled from just one board to create small video wall controllers to multi-board medium-sized and even very large-sized video wall controllers in order to support a wide range of applications from presentation systems in conference rooms, auditoriums, control rooms, and classrooms to collaboration systems used in surveillance and process control systems. With support for HDCP capture and output, the Mura line is also now very popular in advanced digital signage solutions.

    "With these fanless models, Mura further distinguishes itself as the market’s video wall controller board standard,” said Helgi Sigurdsson, Product Manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. “Even greater product reliability complements the high degrees of performance, image quality, and scalability associated with Mura MPX Series.”

    Fanless Universal Output/Input Boards:
    • Mura MPX-4/0 (four outputs, zero inputs)
      Part number: Mura-MPX40HF
    • Mura MPX-4/2 (four outputs, two inputs)
      Part number: Mura-MPX42HF
    • Mura MPX-4/4 (four outputs, four inputs)
      Part number: Mura-MPX44HF
    Availability
    The Matrox Mura MPX Series fanless display wall controller boards and accompanying development kits will be available as of April 2012. Fan-based models are also available and in some instances may be better suited to meet specific system requirements.

    Yeah, also S3 Virge used to have the same thing! I remember adding extra 2MB of VRAM on top of the existing 2MB and the Duke3D tripled its framerates in 1024x768 res! Good times!

    Matrox

    Matrox is a VERY valid product, the graphics world is not all about gaming.
    Matrox makes the worlds best solutions / graphics cards for commercial applications. Like video security walls, Advertising display solutions, Airports use them for the screens. Anyplace that has to have extended video solutions that have to work and work perfectly ALWAYS.
    I have tried all the other -ATI - Nvidia -- etc cards, and have to stick with the more expensive Matrox solutions everytime. I cost money but it works.

    Just so you know.
    Jizzler and Frick say thanks.
