    Matrox Graphics Inc., the leading manufacturer of specialized graphics solutions, today announced multiple DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go Graphics eXpansion Module (GXM) support to drive up to four or six monitors, respectively, from a single system. A second GXM can now be connected to the secondary output of a supported dual monitor graphics card so two DualHead2Go GXMs can power up to four outputs in 2x2 or 4x1 modes, while two TripleHead2Go units can be combined to connect six displays to produce either a 3x2 or 6x1 set up.

    "Multi-GXM support offers a tremendous amount of flexibility by simply having to connect the GXMs externally to your system or workstation," says Ron Berty, Business Development Manager, Matrox Graphics. "Business professionals for example, can now conveniently upgrade to a four- or six-monitor workspace to run additional applications for real-time viewing. Additionally, AV specialists can effortlessly build six-screen presentation or digital signage platforms to drive dynamic, digital messaging while benefiting from the natural synchronization of the screens being driven by a single GPU."

    Matrox currently offers multi-GXM support with the 2.06 (or above) GXM software suite. A maximum of two GXMs—of the same make and model—can be connected to a supported graphics card with two available outputs of the required type. Multi-GXM stretched desktop mode is available with Matrox M-Series cards, while independent desktop support is available with supported M-Series, ATI, and NVIDIA graphics cards. For complete details, visit the Multi-GXM page.

    Matrox partners will be showcasing this technology, alongside a wide range of Matrox digital signage graphics solutions, at Integrated Systems Europe 2010, RAI, Netherlands, from February 2-4.

    Availability and Pricing
    Matrox Graphics eXpansion Modules are available for purchase from authorized resellers worldwide, or in North America and Europe, directly from ShopMatrox.com.

    For the price they want for the Display Port models I cant see many selling. $350 for triple 1280x1024 is too much IMHO

    A number of things... I ran 3 x 19" a couple jobs ago when doing web development work, with the 4th output connected a projector.

    Would have loved a couple more.. but that have been pushing it (needed to get everyone else up to duals first) :D

    People seem to forget that Matrox dont make hardware targeted towards regular or enthusiast market.

    stuff like this will more then likely end up in security control rooms, stock traders desks (the people who stare at bloomberg all day) & lastly graphic designers but I think even graphic designers will struggle to find use for all 6 screens, though Im not saying they cant. & lastly maybe somewhere else in the media industry but I think not - Usually 2 monitors will suffice for most applications before the product hits commercial use & at that price, the mainstream people that cant afford it. but hell if you got money to waste & want a bigger E-Penis by all means go ahead

    If you're talking about upcoming Eyefinity 6, then everything depends on the price...
