Add up to 3 displays to your new Apple notebook: Latest Matrox firmware delivers Thunderbolt compatibility and expanded resolution support
MONTREAL, May 4, 2011 - Matrox Graphics Inc. today announced that the Matrox DualHead2Go DP
Edition and TripleHead2Go DP Edition are now compatible with the latest
Apple(R) MacBook(R) Pro notebooks featuring the new Thunderbolt(TM) port.
Developed by Intel(R) and brought to market with technical collaboration from
Apple, the high speed I/O port sets a new standard for high performance
peripherals. DualHead2Go DP and TripleHead2Go DP are already the preferred
multi-display solutions of many Mac(R) users. With a simple Matrox firmware
update, these solutions can also be used to achieve unprecedented dual- and
triple-monitor performance including OpenGL(R) support on the new
Thunderbolt-enabled MacBook Pro. The new software release will also add the
2×1400x1050 multi-projector resolution to the already comprehensive supported
"DualHead2Go DP and TripleHead2Go DP deliver workstation-class,
multi-display performance for the most demanding media creators and CAD
designers," said Caroline Injoyan, Business Development Manager, Matrox
Graphics, Inc. "We're happy to provide continuous support to our Mac users by
enabling Thunderbolt compatibility on our Graphics eXpansion Modules."
The Matrox DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go Graphics eXpansion Modules
(GXMs) work in conjunction with your system's existing GPU to provide
high-quality, uncompressed graphics and video across maximum resolutions of
dual 1920×1200 and triple 1360×768 under Mac. With the additional desktop
display area, MacBook Pro users can 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-organizing 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. GXMs are also
compatible with Microsoft(R) Windows(R) operating systems.
The new software is available on the Matrox driver download web pages,
while the Matrox DualHead2Go DP Edition (Part #: D2G-DP-MIF) and
TripleHead2Go DP Edition (Part #: T2G-DP-MIF) are available for purchase from
authorised Matrox resellers worldwide or, in North America and Europe,
directly from Matrox.
