New DisplayPort SKUs Provide Improved Out-Of-The-Box Plug and Play Experience Plus Expanded Resolution Support for Mac Notebooks and Desktops
Montreal, Canada, December 9, 2010—Matrox Graphics Inc. today announced connectivity improvements to the Matrox DualHead2Go DP Edition and TripleHead2Go DP Edition Graphics eXpansion Modules (GXMs) benefitting Apple® Mac notebook and desktop users. The DualHead2Go DP and TripleHead2Go DP products now come packaged with a Mini-DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable that allows Mac users to connect these external multi-monitor modules directly to the mini-DisplayPort output of their systems to swiftly drive multiple monitors or projectors. Mac professionals and enthusiasts now benefit from the convenience of a true plug and play platform while experiencing the productivity-enhancements gained across an advanced dual- or triple-monitor workspace. In addition, an upcoming firmware release will enable the support of a dual 1600x900 resolution on DVI monitors, further expanding the list of supported resolutions for greater flexibility when choosing displays.
"A growing number of Mac users are choosing the Matrox DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go as their multi-display technology of choice, and we've responded by delivering our most Mac-friendly solutions to date," states Caroline Injoyan, Business Development Manager, Matrox Graphics, Inc. "By including the Mini-DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable in the newest GXM versions, we're providing the ultimate out-of-box experience so the only thing users need to worry about is how best to enjoy their expansive onscreen desktop space."
The Matrox DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go GXMs work in conjunction with your system's existing GPU to provide high-quality, uncompressed graphics and video across maximum resolutions of dual 1920x1200 and triple 1360x768 under Mac. With the additional desktop display area, MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac Mini, and Mac Pro users can comfortably run different applications on each monitor or view one application across multiple displays, eliminating the tedious and time-consuming tasks of re-sizing, re-arranging, and re-organising multiple windows. Notebook users can further enhance their productive workflow by using their laptop's LCD as a third or fourth monitor to achieve an unprecedented level of computing efficiency. GXMs are also compatible with Microsoft® Windows® operating systems.
