Intel Demos Quad Displays at IDF

Multi-tasking aficionados have a chance to rejoice as DisplayLink and Intel introduced quad monitor support for next generation systems featuring Intel®4 Series Express Chipsets. Quad-monitor technology combines DisplayLink’s USB network display software with the Intel® 4 Series Express Chipset Family for desktop and notebook PCs, where, the technology outputs images on up to four displays at the same time - two integrated displays plus two DisplayLink (USB) enabled displays.

No extra graphics cards are required, making it easier, faster and less expensive for desktop and notebook users to achieve the benefits of multi-monitor computing. People can rely on a familiar USB interface to simply plug and view in multi-monitor mode, gaining more capabilities and productivity since they can spread several applications over four displays while viewing everything at once.

With DisplayLink USB graphics connection technology, users with PCs based on the Intel® 4 Series Express Chipset Family can easily connect to external peripherals they need without sacrificing performance, mobility or cost.

The DisplayLink graphics solution supported by the Intel® 4 Series Express Chipset Family is optimized for Windows Vista Basic and Ultimate Windows Vista Aero where accelerating video playback and high-definition images look more realistic. In addition, DisplayLink is optimized for DVD playback without compromising performance.

“Together with DisplayLink USB graphics technology, PC users now have the added capability to multitask and increase productivity with multiple screen outputs using PCs based on the Intel® 4 Series Express Chipset Family,” says Eric Mentzer, Graphics Development Group General Manager, Intel Corporation.
