EVGA's DisplayPort Hub Lets You String Together Three Monitors From a Single Source

Paul Lilly

A silent and portable solution

EVGA has designed a handy DisplayPort hub that allows for multi-monitor connectivity from a single DisplayPort source, negating the need to invest in another graphics card. The hub supports up to three DisplayPort compatible monitors without any special software or drivers other than your graphics card driver. It does require external power, so EVGA includes an external power adapter in the box.

EVGA's DisplayPort hub essentially splits the single DisplaySource output between however many monitors (up to three) are connected. By going this route, users are limited to 1920x1080 per monitor when connecting three displays. Here's a breakdown of the supported resolutions and how they're allocated:

  • 2400 x 600 (3 x 800 x 600)
  • 3072 x 768 (3 x 1024 x 768)
  • 3840 x 720 (3 x 1280 x 720)
  • 3840 x 768 (3 x 1280 x 768)
  • 3840 x 800 (3 x 1280 x 800)
  • 3840 x 960 (3 x 1280 x 960)
  • 3840 x 1024 (3 x 1280 x 1024)
  • 4080 x 768 (3 x 1360 x 768)
  • 4098 x 768 (3 x 1366 x 768)
  • 4320 x 900 (3 x 1440 x 900)
  • 5040 x 1050 (3 x 1680 x 1050)
  • 5760 x 1080 (3 x 1920 x 1080)

The device is hot plug compatible and works with all existing DisplayPort 1.2a graphics cards and laptops, EVGA says. It's also totally silent and portable. EVGA sees this being used for graphic design, video editing, 3D animation, CAD/CAM, spreadsheet analysis, and general productivity.

You can purchase the DisplayPort Hub now for $100 direct from EVGA . At present, there's a $20 mail-in-rebate available.
