Title: Advantage TripleHeadToGo vs. GraphicCard Output
Post by: dudoru on September 27, 2019, 12:47:02 pm
Hi,

is there an advantage buying a matrox triple head to go for a 3 projector setup vs. using three of four graphiccard outputs of the main-pc ?

Yes Tripple head to your system is one monitor. One output and doesn't consume many resources. 

3 outputs on your video card even if you get the zoom right and span across all 3 outputs is very taxing on your system. 

The classified board has Jackpilot listed one used for sale

Modern Nvidia graphic cards have this feature built in.  Here's an older article about it, but the idea is the same as the triplehead2go.

thanks for your comment.
wanted to know, if it´s worth spending the money or having an equal solution in quality with the own onboard graphic card ?
