Ever Wanted a 20480 X 3200 Resolution Display? Matrox Has You Covered.

Edit: Whoops, our previous resolution figure was wrong, and has been corrected.

Matrox isn’t a name you hear a lot anymore. The graphics spotlight has been effectively taken over by Nvidia and AMD. Matrox isn’t letting that get them down and have announced a new GPU, the Matrox M9188 PCIe x16 multi-display Octal .

The M9188 comes equipped with eight DisplayPort outputs and 2GB of RAM. Each of the DisplayPorts is capable of driving a monitor with a resolution of 2560x1600. They also throw in eight DisplayPort to DVI adapters in case you have eight DVI monitors lying around.

Further, the driver supports multiple cards on a system. So with two of these monsters, you’d be capable of running 16 monitors with a total resolution of 20,480 X 3,200, in a 2 X 8 configuration .  Good luck finding wallpaper for that.
