I am running 12 Dell U2412M ( 24 inch, 1920x1200 ) monitors using 3, AMD FirePro 2460 Low profile Video Cards. Each card has 4 Mini DP ports & runs 4 monitors each. I am using Dell workstation & it has 4 PCIe slots.
I am not running any games or very intensive programs. Just the stock market charts, 12 of them, each one is a different stock.
Now I am inspired by this video on you tube where this guy is running 8 monitors from a Laptop using only USB 3.0 seven port Hub.
So Now I want to run those 12 monitors from Dell M6800 Laptop workstation but in a little different way by using external PCIe slots.
The problem is to get 3 PCIe slots & solution I found is to use an external “ Nestor NA211A-NB “ PCIe expansion box that can be connected to Laptop using Express Card.
Each slot runs at 1X bandwidth.
This Nestor box costs around $ 780.00.
So before I start on this venture, could someone tell me if this is possible or am I going to run into bottleneck ?
