Matrox announces industry’s first x16 PCI Express, quad-display graphics card

Matrox Graphics, the manufacturer of graphics solutions, announces the Matrox QID LP PCIe, the industry’s first x16 PCI Express(TM) graphics card for up to four displays at a time. Providing extra reliability and performance, this card has a single Matrox-designed graphics chip to control displays and to support x16 PCI Express natively. Providing extra flexibility, the card supports digital and analog monitors, and has a low-profile design that allows it to fit in a wider variety of systems.

The Matrox QID LP PCIe includes 128 MB of graphics memory and supports resolutions up to 1600 x 1200 per display. Matrox products also have features essential for mission-critical environments, including hardware with high MTBF (Mean Time Before Failure), Matrox FanAlert software for added system security, long product runs, and support for Microsoft(R) Windows(R) 2000 and Windows XP. Display drivers for the Linux(R) and Sun Solaris(TM) x86 operating systems will be available as upgrades.
