Matrox brings TripleHead to workstation and
gaming systems New TripleHead2Go external box adds three screens to desktops and
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."
Building on the momentum of the award winning DualHead2Go,
with TripleHead2Go, Matrox has introduced an innovative new category
of patent-pending hardware products to the market called Graphics
eXpansion Modules (GXMs). GXMs are not graphics accelerators;
rather they are external boxes that connect to a computer using a standard
analog VGA monitor cable. The system's existing graphics chip is used
for rendering of all 2D, 3D and video and the GXM works to add multi-monitor
support to this.
TripleHead2Go uniquely allows customers in areas including Mechanical
CAD, Visualization, Digital Content Creation and Animation to upgrade
existing certified, mission-critical workstations to TripleHeadT displays to
enable a Surround DesignT experience without opening the PC tower case or
installing a new graphics solution. TripleHead2Go supports Microsoft®
Windows® desktop at up to 3840x1024 resolution across three displays with
full acceleration on all displays.
Matrox TripleHead2Go enables Surround GamingT by expanding supported
3D games across three displays. At launch, TripleHead2Go will have
support for more than 150 popular games including id Software's Quake 4T,
UbiSoft's Brother's in Arms: Earned in BloodT, Microsoft's Age of Empires
IIIT, 10tacle studios AG's GTRT, Microsoft's Flight Simulator 2004: A Century
of Flight and many more. Matrox will regularly add more titles to a
supported gaming list at www.matrox.com/graphics/triplehead2go
TripleHead2Go supports gaming at 3840x1024, 3072x768 and 2400x600 and
1920x480 resolutions. Frame rates will vary with resolution and will
depend on the GPU in the system.
TripleHead2Go includes support for Microsoft® Windows® 2000 and Windows®
XP, and is compatible with many professional and enthusiast class desktop
and laptop PCs equipped with certain NVIDIA® and ATI® enabled graphics
chipsets and add-in-boards. Maximum resolutions supported may vary
depending on the GPU version, please visit www.matrox.com/graphics/triplehead2go for more details.
