Matrox ships TripleHead2Go


— 1:43 AM on May 26, 2006

Matrox says it is now shipping the TripleHead2Go graphics expansion module to retailers worldwide. TripleHead2Go allows users to connect up to three displays to most desktop computers and notebooks. The module identifies itself to the host system as a single, large display with a maximum resolution of 3840x1024. Drivers aren't required, but the module can only interface with analog monitor inputs. Matrox says supporting DVI displays would limit the TripleHead2Go's compatibility to graphics cards with dual-link DVI output; in its current implementation, the module is said to be compatible with a rather large number of graphics cards.

Compatibility with games is also one of the TripleHead2Go's big selling points, and Matrox says it has worked with a number of game developers to make sure titles like World of Warcraft, Half-Life 2, and Unreal Tournament 2004 work with the product. Matrox's press release claims that 135 games are supported, but the company's Surround Gaming Zone page bumps that number to 150. Either way, the TripleHead2Go is already available from Matrox's Shopmatrox.com website for $299. Matrox also says a number of system integrators, including ABS, Maingear, Monarch Computers, and Shuttle will be offering the TripleHead2Go with their machines.
