New TripleHead2Go external box adds three screens to desktops and laptops

Matrox VITE : 09 July, 2006  (New Product)
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 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 TripleHead displays to enable a Surround Design 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 Gaming 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 4, UbiSoft's Brother's in Arms: Earned in Blood, Microsoft's Age of Empires III, 10tacle studios AG's GTR, Microsoft's Flight Simulator 2004: A Century of Flight and many more. Matrox will regularly add more titles to a supported gaming list at 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.
