Matrox DualHead2Go And TripleHead2Go GXMs Get Mac Friendly

You know what they say? Mac users need multi-monitor attention as well! Matrox has been extending displays for years and years now, though the company has focused mostly on helping PC users. But now, they're introducing a new Mac-friendly  set of adapters, the DualHead2Go DP and TripleHead2Go DP.

These Graphics eXpansion Modules (GXMs) are designed to benefit both Apple desktop and notebook users, with each coming 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.

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.

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.

Of course, these are all also compatible with Windows, but that DisplayPort inclusion definitely helps the Mac crowd out in a big way. The Matrox DualHead2Go DP Edition (Part #: D2G-DP-MIF) and TripleHead2Go DP Edition (Part #: T2G-DP-MIF) for Mac are now available at a MSRP of $239 and $329 respectively.
