    Re: Matrox C900 single slot graphics card supports nine FHD displays

    Intriguingly, the Matrox product page for the C900 specifies that you have to drive "3, 6 or 9 synchronised displays" - not sure if that means other numbers simply aren't supported, or can be driven but not synchronised? Possibly something to do with the clock generators an HDMI output needs? Could it work by generating 3 separate virtual display surfaces then using just three clock generators, each driving 3 monitors with the surface tiled across them? Wish I new more about GPU output architecture

    The C680 board mentioned in the article looks interesting - a lower end AMD GPU with (essentially) an eyefinity 6 set up (6x displayport outputs). Depends how much it costs when it comes to market, but it could be a good product for the productivity sector....

    On 9 screens?! I doubt it Does rather depend which AMD GPU is under the hood though: I'm guessing that to hit 75W it'd either have to be a low-clocked Bonnaire or Tahiti, or a well-clock Oland, although it could be Cape Verde-based. Given it's got 4GB GDDR5 though, a 256bit card might be more likely? I'm not sure if 1GB GDDR5 chips are out there...?

    I like the strong branding on the PCB and heatsink
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    hahaha, some people have gone haywire with the 'But can it run Crysis' swag line. Why on earth would you buy a special graphics card like that for $500 then run Crysis on low frame rates on a single 720p monitor. This is the same thing as buying a firepro card for gaming.

    Ah a Matrox Millenium tag teaming with a Diamond Monster Voodoo 1. Those were the days.

    Well these days aren't that bad either!
