Innovative NVIDIA AIC partner Galaxy, today demonstrates two graphics cards supporting multiple display outputs. Traditionally, multiple display output solution has been dominated by ATI's graphics cards, which supports up to 6 monitors using Eyefinity technology. On the other hand, most of the NVIDIA graphics cards are limited to a dual monitor configuration. Galaxy has been able to overcome this limit by using third party controllers, and both of the cards presented today utilized technologies from IDT.
The first card presented today looks very similar to the acclaimed Galaxy GeForce GTX 460 WHDI, the first WHDI graphics card on the market. In fact, Galaxy hints the card uses the same PCB design seen on GTX 460 WHDI and GTX 460 Razor (but with a updated GTX 560 GPU of course), and that the modular design of the PCB has made it possible to quickly add new features to the card.
In addition to the DVI and DP output seen on GTX 460 Razor, the card spots 4 additional Mini-HDMI output on the upper bracket. According to Galaxy, the card supports a total of 5 monitor outputs simultaneously (4 Mini-HDMI plus one DVI or DP). User has the flexibility to use 3 or 4 of the Mini-HDMI ports to combine into a single monitor span in windows, creating a surround gaming environment. The card supports 5040x1050@60Hz (1680x1050 on each monitor) combined resolution in 3 monitor mode, or 5760x900@60Hz (1440x900 on each monitor) in 4 monitor mode.
The other card on the spot features a GeForce 210 GPU underneath the passively cooled heat sink. The card has borrowed its look from the NVIDIA Quadro series, featuring two proprietary DMS59 connectors. Using the supplied cable, each DMS59 supports 2 DVI monitors at up to 1920x1080p resolution, of up to 4 monitors in total. The card uses two VMM1402 chipsets from IDT in order to provide quad display output.
To allow users to easily manage windows between different monitors, Galaxy has also teamed up with WinSplit Revolution to bundle their desktop utility into their graphics cards.
Galaxy is set to launch the new multiple display families of graphics cards in May, price and availability is still unknown.
