Matrox makes an effort to combat AMD's Eyefinity

Allows for multi-GXM configurations

| Video Cards News | Posted: Jan 28, 2010 6:41 am

One area in the graphics card world that Matrox has kept a firm hold of over stronger competitors AMD and NVIDIA is in regards to multi-monitor configurations.

 

However, with AMD's most recent HD 5000 series cards that bring with them Eyefinity, this is a clear threat to Matrox's own technologies so the company has worked on bettering this field by enabling DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go Graphics eXpansion Modules (GXMs) to be used in tandem which in turn gives the ability to drive up to four or even six monitors from a single PC.

The new 2.06+ GXM software suite gives support for Multi-GXM setups whereby identical modules can be connected to a single graphics card with two outputs.

 

Here is a listing of all multi-GXM supporting products from Matrox with associated pricing :-

 

- DualHead2Go Analog Edition ($169)

 

- DualHead2Go Digital Edition ($229)

 

- DualHead2Go DP Edition ($229)

 

- TripleHead2Go Digital Edition ($329)

 

- TripleHead2Go DP Editio ($329)
