It’s almost a year since we last spoke about them, but Matrox is continuing to produce graphics cards for the pro sector and has announced two new graphics cards. The M9138 and M9148 have 1 GB of memory and support DisplayPort, a new digital interface that allows you to send flows and manage several digital screens. It comes with a new connector but adaptors are available for conversion to HDMI and DVI.
The M9138 allows you to use up to three monitors while the M9148 can handle four. All this with a maximum resolution of 2560x1600 in DP and 1920x1200 in DVI. These low profile 16X PCI Express cards are cooled passively and can be combined as pairs, meaning an M9148 pairing can support up to eight screens. They are guaranteed for three years and are available at 335 and 535 euros respectively.
Matrox has also added two Dual and TripleHead2Go solutions that support DisplayPort. They
allow you to manage several screens from your PC with particular options. The DualHead 2Go DP Edition and TripleHead 2 Go Dp Edition are available at 195 and 280 euros respectively.
