Feast your eyes on a quad-display setup running 4K Ultra HD.
Gigabyte earlier this week announced that it's dual-Thunderbolt boards are the first to implement the Intel Collage display technology. With a BIOS update and special driver, Intel Collage allows compatible boards to drive a 4K Ultra HD picture across four standard 1080p monitors. Maximum PC Deputy Editor Gordon Mah Ung stopped by Gigabyte's booth to see this technology first hand, and now you can too.
What's pretty remarkable about this is that it runs off of Intel's integrated graphics in Core i3, i5, and i7 processors; a discrete graphics card isn't required. The board Gigabyte used to demonstrate the technology is its GA-Z77X-UP5 TH, a motherboard that's been available to purchase for quite some time now.
Why would you want to do this? The main benefit is being able to save a ton of cash by using four relatively inexpensive 1080p monitors, rather than spending a fortune on a 4K monitor. Gigabyte also sees this technology being utilized in commercial markets that include digital signage, surveillance, medical, and more.
