Matrox rolls out quad-output M-series video card

Matrox M Series

Matrox this afternoon began offering the M-series, a set of video cards it says includes the first to output to four separate displays by itself. The M9140 uses the Canadian company's own connectors as well as a set of adapters to output video to four displays at once without sacrificing resolution. Every display, whhether DVI or VGA, can reach a greater-than-HD 1920x1200 resolution, the company says. The achievement also comes while fitting the card into the space of a single slot and while still using passive cooling that renders the card perfectly quiet.

The M9140 is backed up by three extra cards for alternate tasks: the M9120 Plus optionally puts out video to analog sources, while the M9125 supports up to the 2560x1600 resolution of most 30-inch LCDs. Most require a PCI Express x16 slot, though special version of the M1920 Plus will work in x1 slots as an add-on for systems that need an extra video output.

All the cards are available now and range in price from a basic M9120 at $99 to $599 for the quad-capable M9140. The devices currently require Windows XP or Vista.
