Without a doubt, using multiple displays amps up desktop productivity, but that comes with a cost – power. At DisplayLink, we’ve solved that problem using energy efficient USB graphics technology. We’ve been running an internal test here at the Interop show where we do a side by side power consumption test.
System one (left) features one dual output graphics card running two displays. System two (right) is using a USB graphics adapter and an integrated graphics chip to drive two displays. On average system one runs at about 80 watts of power, while system two clocks in at under 50 watts.
Less power equals a greener environment, a longer lasting PC and an overall cost saving that could really add up. Thanks DisplayLink.
