Matrox Powers 8 Displays With A Single Card


By Chris Scott Barr

How many monitors do you have sitting on your desk? For most people the answer is one, sometimes two. This is understandable, considering most computers only support 1-2 displays. Video card manufacturers are starting to discover that some people need more than a couple monitors, and thus are crafting cards that cater to them. ATI recently launched their Radeon 5800 series, which allowed for 6 displays, but now Matrox has one-upped them with their new M9188 card.

If you have an octet of monitors and are tired of dealing with multiple video cards, then this new card from Matrox is exactly what you need. If you have dreams of stretching your favorite games across a wall of monitors, sadly this is not the card for you. The M9188 was designed with enterprise clients in mind. The Radeon 5800 cards are going to be a better bet, especially with the new Eyefinity technology. Of course the $2,000 price tag will surely be enough to drive off all but the most eager of buyers.

I am a big fan of PC gaming and if you have ever compared graphics on games available on PC and console systems when the PC is well equipped, it is easy to see the graphics on PC are much better. The rub for many PC gamers is that the hardware costs much more than buying a game console. The video cards alone often cast more than an Xbox and a Wii put together.

NVIDIA has announced a new mid-range video card called the GTX 275 that puts good performance into the hands of gamers looking to spend about $250. Sure, that’s still more than a Wii, but you can do so much more on a computer than you can on the Wii. The GTX 275 slots into the lineup between the GTX 260 and GTX 285 in price and performance.
