Matrox_M9188_Eight_Monitor_Support

Good News Bad News Matrox‘s M9188 is an unique PCIe x16 GPU that supports up to eight displays: eight DisplayPort connections or eight single-link DVI connections. That is amazing! The M9188 packs 2GB of video memory and each of the displays can have a resolution as high as 2560 x 1600. You won’t have to fiddle with USB-to-VGA/DVI/HDMI tools anymore and even with those you’re limited to six. But here’s the bad news: the M9188 will require a hefty US$1995 investment. With that price the M9188 is clearly targeted toward companies and individuals that highly value screen real estate. The picture above shows a 16 display setup using dual M9188 GPUs.
