    Matrox Graphics Inc., the leading manufacturer of professional graphics solutions, today announced the availability of its Millennium P690 Series fanless graphics cards. These cards are available in several form factors, offer low power consumption, and unified display drivers for easy deployment across multiple systems. In addition, the P690 Plus LP PCI/PCIe products can be upgraded (via a Quad-HD15 cable) to drive four analog monitors—and up to eight analog or four digital monitors in a joined-graphics card configuration.

    "The P690 Series is a redesign of the popular P650 Series graphics cards, combining new 90nm chip design and DDR2 memory technology with our rock-solid unified drivers," states Alan Vandenbussche, Vice President Sales and Marketing, Matrox Graphics. "As a result, the P690 Series is an ideal choice for professionals looking for low power consumption and a long production life, without the risk of unproven drivers."

    Millennium P690 Highlights
    • DualHead Support:

      - Work with two digital or analog monitors as one large desktop, or at independent resolutions and display orientations.
    • Quad-Upgradeable:

      - P690 Plus DualHead cards can be upgraded to support up to four analog displays.
      - Pair two P690 Plus cards for a multi-display solution which supports a stretched taskbar across four DVI or eight analog monitors.
    • Ultra-Low Power Consumption:
      - Industry-leading power consumption levels of 12 watts or less promote sustainable design and environmental conservation.
    • Passive Cooling:

      - Fanless design eliminates noise, enhances product reliability, and improves system compatibility.
    • Wide Enterprise Flexibility:

      - Multiple form factors allow standardization across a wide variety of systems.

  3. some are for cad others are for medical imaging and even others by matrox are used by multi display layouts and walls, as well as security, one card can be hooked to as many as 4 monitors in some cases and many of the cards are pci so they are extremely upgradable. Matrox invented the Dualhead graphics architecture and now has expanded it to fit tripple and quadrupple in some cases, kinda neat if you as me.

    Matrox cards are notorious for their cards for graphics work, cad work, workstations, adobe elements and the like. Really stout cards for that sort of thing. also, they dont play too badly on games, but they are not optimized for that.
