    Peripherals major Targus introduced the ACA039US, a USB display adapter that takes advantage of the USB 3.0 SuperSpeed interface, and provides two display outputs, supporting two displays. Based on DisplayLink DL-3900 chipset, the ACA039US relies on USB 3.0 for both host connectivity and power. It gives out two display outputs: DVI-I (single link) and HDMI 1.3. Each connector supports display heads at resolutions up to 2048 x 1152 pixels, even though the DL-3900 chipset supports 2560 x 1600 (over dual-link DVI). The HDMI 1.3 connection gives out 5.1-channel audio, and is HDCP 2.0-compliant. The ACA039US from Targus will be released to market soon, at a price of US $99.99, a single-port variant is also planned, at US$79.99. Let's hope it has dual-link DVI.

    How would this work with a discrete GFX card? How could you tell the card to output to this usb device instead of it's own outputs?

    It is its own adapter/"GFX card".

    Or for someone who want to power lots and lots of monitors from one laptop ;)

    I'd like to know what this can support over USB 2.0 - is it one monitor or would it be 2 monitors at 1280x1024 etc?

    This is ideal in case you own an nVidia card and want to use triple monitor setup ;) (yes, NOT for gaming)
