Default Matrox TripleHead2Go Digital Edition

With the digital edition of the TripleHead2Go, hooking up three LCD's via DVI and VGA is possible. This allows you to drastically increase your desktop space and/or improve your gaming. Best of all, you don't need to add a second GPU, and not even an additional power outlet is required!

You can read Greg's full review here and discuss it here!

I can't imagine my room's desktop with three displays. Two is nice...three seems way too overwhelming...

Ahh, a man who dislikes his ménage à trois. Kidding, I'm with you. I'd rather one really large monitor over three smaller ones, but each person has specific needs/wants.

Unregistered... I agree and apologize for not including any. By the time I got to the writing of the review, it had been about a month since I did the testing. Check out the last page of my TH2Go Analog review, I have pics there. That said, I will work to get some pics up by next week.

Thanks for the comments and sorry for the omission.

Also, to comment on what everyone else has said...


Merlin, its a toy. A great toy but a novelty none the less.

gml_josea, I use two monitors at work and can never go back. Productivity is great with dual monitors.

Rob, your a ball bag and I agree with you. I would rather game on my 24" LCD but when I need to work, like write reviews for your slave driving ass, the three monitors can not be beat... unless I had 4 monitors. Hmmm.... are you listening Matrox?

Default TH2Go Digital - OS support ?

I'm guessing from the report that the display settings are only available on Windows - or am I missing something ? If not, do you happen to know what other options are available for setup, e.g. via a web interface... the screen shots that were posted seem to indicate that the interface is trivial in requirements so it's (only slightly) surprising that an effort has been made to code for a specific platform (whatever that may be).

Cheers
Tim

Did you find a way to search for or add a Cfg file for a game not in the list. I participate in game beta's a lot. I could not find any info on setting up your own file and could only browse or search for games in the list.

Hey - does this device require that all external monitors connected be of the same resolution, size, etc., or can they be all different?

Dawsmit,

Thanks for posting. I haven't used the TH2Go for many months now but I know that the software has not evolved to the point that what you are asking is possible. How it works is that the actual TripleHead2Go tricks the computer into thinking that it's connected to one large resolution display. Your three monitors much be the same resolution in order to have a supported resolution across two or three monitors.

I hope that you find this helpful.

The TH2Go mentioned in this review is all DVI. No VGA to be found.
