Multiple Monitor Solutions – A Comparison Of The Many Graphics Cards Available

Oct 20th 2014 at 7:31 AM

There are various scenarios that find use for high end display mechanisms such as multiple monitor systems. Everything from security operations to trading platforms make use of this technology so that all the relevant information is displayed in the required format in front of professionals as and when they need it. This technology has become a standard accessory for many industries, ever since it was introduced in the market.

This increased demand and general popularity in the market for multiple monitor solutions has lead to a wide range of products coming up in the market. Different brands, different configurations – all in all a very confused purchase experience for the end user who might not always be all that technically literate to understand what’s best for him/her. One way to select the right multiple monitor system for yourself is by looking under the hood and comparing the graphics card installed in the one you are considering. Here is a basic explanation of the different types and capacities of graphics cards used in multi monitor systems.

· Discreet graphics card allows you to take the graphics processing job away from your computer’s central processing unit. It can prevent your CPU from beginning to slow down and allow for the multiple monitors to operate at full power.

· The Power graphics card, as the name suggests, is a powerful addition to your computer and is used in applications where the display calls for the highest level of display quality. However when looking for such power, don’t go overboard and get a system with say a 3D modelling card which is expensive and mostly unnecessary. Just pick out the one with optimum capacity and make sure it is configured to support multiple monitor displays.

There are also the dual and triple monitor graphics cards that you can look into to support your display requirements. Now that you know what all is available in the market, let us move onto some of the basic aspects you should keep in mind before selecting the one for you.

· In case of dual and triple monitor cards, you will need to ensure that all of them are the same exact model otherwise you are headed towards some major configuration issues.

· DVI and HDMI outputs use the same digital signals, so these can easily be interchanged inexpensively.

· Make sure that your computer and processor are powerful enough to support the display capabilities and results you are expecting from your card.

· Configuration of the multiple monitor systems is a critical point to watch out for. Make sure that your IT team installs the right hardware to match with the display capabilities you are looking for.

All in all, the graphics card you are using can pretty much define the experience you will have with the multiple monitor solution you are looking to install for your needs. It will also determine the amount of money you will be paying for the purchasing the system. For more information on the best video wall systems, be sure to visit
