Although not very big'n'bold in the graphics industry these days, Matrox are certainly holding their own when it comes to a newly introduced product dubbed the "TripleHead2Go". It's an external monitor box which allows basically any video card configuration (incl. just a singular output, SLI, etc.) to be connected through it for spanning across 3 monitors. The ideal scenario would be 3 x 19" LCDs with a combined resolution of 3840x1024 and 45" of desktop real estate.

PCStats have posted up the supporting press release on it here, and the FiringSquad have scored themselves one for review.

Matrox Graphics, Inc., the leading manufacturer of graphics solutions for professionals, today unveiled the new TripleHead2Go, a palm-sized box which uniquely allows a user to add three 19" monitors with a combined resolution of up to 3840x1024 and an incredible 45" of total diagonal to many workstations, gaming systems and laptops- even if those systems only support a single display output.

"Running 3D and animation applications fully accelerated across three screens provides a tremendous productivity benefit for many workstation users", says Dan Wood, VP Technical Marketing, Matrox Graphics Inc. "For gamers, three screens enables an immersive experience by engaging a players peripheral vision and allowing them to see the gaming environment as if they were looking through an extra wide-angle camera lens; it just makes games more fun."
