Matrox DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go compatible with Macs

Back in February, we reported about Aniel using the Matrox DualHead2Go with his Mac mini. This basically gave him the ability to run dual displays. Well, Matrox announced today that its DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go peripherals are now officially compatible with select Mac systems. The DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go are palm-sized boxes that connect externally to a notebook or desktop computer and uniquely allow users to attach two or three monitors respectively for a multi-monitor configuration.

DualHead2Go enables a fully symmetric dual-monitor setup for Mac notebooks or desktops, creating the workspace for managing multiple projects or office applications simultaneously. If a larger desktop space is required, the TripleHead2Go can be used to work with a triple-monitor setup.

"Matrox GXM technology will revolutionize the Mac platform with its unprecedented portability and ease-of-use," says Caroline Injoyan, business development manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. "Now Mac users can finally benefit from Matrox's multi-monitor expertise, traditionally reserved for PC environments, by simply incorporating a GXM into their system setup."

Graphics eXpansion Modules (GXM) are external devices that are simple to setup-there is no need to open up the computer to insert parts or to replace any hardware or software. The operating system detects the DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go like an ultra-widescreen monitor that supports resolutions of up to 2560x1024 and 3840x1024 respectively. The GXM technology then splits this ultra-wide resolution into two or three standard resolutions and sends the information to the attached monitors. The GXM maximizes the capabilities of the Mac by using its existing graphics hardware and software for all 2D, 3D, and video acceleration.

The Mac mini is only compatible with the DualHead2Go. A complete list of compatible systems is posted on the Matrox website and maximum resolutions supported may vary depending on the system model or GPU.

The Matrox DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go are now shipping at list prices of $169 and $299, respectively.
