So you want to be hip like the other geeksters, gamers, and graphicteers out there with multi-monitor setups but you cant quite afford that ultimate video card just yet, especially after you handed over your savings for the 2 extra flat screens. Then its time to turn to the Graphics eXpansion Modules (GXM) from Matrox that are external devices that let you connect up to three existing monitors for under $300. And what’s even better is that Matrox has just upgraded their DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go to be compatible with select Macs.
So, if you have one of the latest Macs, you can now connect up to three screens. Why two if you can do three, right? And as you can see from the picture above, you can also turn a notebook such as your Macbook into a visually powerful desktop system with two extra monitors by using the Matrox modules.
The DualHead2Go enables a fully symmetric dual-montior setup for Mac notebooks or desktops. But should that not be big enough, the TripleHead2Go can connect up to three monitors. They are simple to setup, requiring no replacement of any hardware or software, and your operating system will detect the DualHead2Go or TripleHead2Go as an ultra-widescreen monitor that supports resolutions of up to 2560x1024 and 3840x1024 respectively. The GXM then splits this ultra-wide resolution into two or three standard resolutions and sends them off to the connected monitors.
These Matrox GXM modules are shipping now at $169 for the DualHead2Go and $299 for the TripleHead2Go.
