    ZOTAC International, a leading innovator and the world’s largest channel manufacturer of graphics cards, motherboards and mini-PCs, today announces the ZOTAC DisplayPort to Dual HDMI and mini-DisplayPort to Dual HDMI adaptors designed to double display output capabilities on desktops and notebooks.

    The ZOTAC Dual HDMI adaptors transform native DisplayPort and mini-DisplayPort outputs from notebooks, desktops – graphics cards and integrated graphics – to dual HDMI outputs. The HDMI outputs are capable of resolutions up to 1920x1080 per port for a combined spanned resolution of 3840x1080 with the ZOTAC Dual HDMI adaptors.

    “Multiple monitors are becoming quite popular for day-to-day tasks. Users can expand their system to triple displays by combining a laptop display, dual display-capable graphics card or motherboard with a ZOTAC Dual HDMI adaptor,” said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC International.

    The ZOTAC Dual HDMI adaptors are completely passive and do not require additional cabling for power – just plug the DisplayPort or mini-DisplayPort cables into the adaptor and instantly have two 1080p capable HDMI outputs.”

    It’s time to play with the ZOTAC Dual HDMI adaptors.

    General details
    • New ZOTAC DisplayPort to Dual HDMI and mini-DisplayPort to Dual HDMI adaptors
    • Transform DisplayPort or mini-DisplayPort outputs to dual HDMI outputs

    Is there really enough bandwidth on HDMI to make this work correctly ?

    Display port
    So 17.28gb

    So I think display port has enough umph to drive to monitors. Gaming wise, maybe not but it can definitely handle two monitors

    My initial thought is that this could simplify eyefinity setup, or am I off base?

    Cool. Just surprised they don't say that in any of their marketing material.

    No, but my point was not what I see. It's about marketing majors missing an obvious chance to state the obvious.

    Yeah it seems to suffer from bad marketing.

    The real question is, will it be compatable with my 5850?

    Honestly I doubt it will work with old tech. The 58xx series (minus the 6 monitor output eyefinity cards) can only support 3 monitors total. I could see the DP outputting 2 hdmi monitors as a passive output. This would prevent a third monitor. But who knows, maybe amd will release a driver to let us use 4 monitors with our "old tech".

    this wont show up as 2 monitors to the system. go look up the matrox triple head 2 go, or whatever they called it

    So this is going to have to work with the drivers for whatever chipset or video card it's attached to? Oh yeah, that sounds like hours of entertainment. Best check the compatible hardware list before buying. And even then . . . .

    What's the proposed MSRP? Give it time, the design or something similar will probably end up on Monoprice.

    its designed to make it look like a single, twice as wide monitor.


    If you have fisheyes, you could run three of these and eyefinity for a 6 monitor setup.

    Pretty sure the output would have to be 1.2 spec'd
    Assuming they are using dp1.2 hub capability
    I really was wondering I could find and hubs out there now I do eyefinity with five monitors
    I use 3 now for certain games, some game you only want one , that's just me though
    That's why main monitor is my best and 120hz crossfire scaling is great:)
    Edit - If its DP1.2 then its all hardware as far what your card can handle shortnof gaming pretty much any thing. By modern standards anyway. Mainly static desktop work no proplems - for gaming yeah youll need some hotsepower - I can run bad company maxes out 50-60 gps at least with my 2 6970s and i7 stock

    Sadly efinoty requires you to use 2DP while in eyfinity
    I can run 12 monitors now in a non crossfire non eyefinity setup

    Do fisheyed people really see that wide? Is cool
     
  23. twilyth Guest

    Oh, he meant that literally? I just figured it was some kind of Australian slang. I think my normal eyes could easily handle 6 monitors as I have nearly 170 degrees of peripheral vision.

    i meant fisheyes as in extremely wide vision, 6 monitors would cover a huge area, per my original comment.


    what, you people never looked at a fish before? notice that their eyes face sideways...
     
  25. twilyth Guest

    I guess you've never seen some of the trading stations people have set up. 6 monitors is a minimum.

    For example:
