In the last few years we’ve seen discrete graphics cards bring additional output ports to consumers, allowing for multiple displays to be run simultaneously. AMD with Eyefinity, and Nvidia with Surround, have both expanded the vision, literally and figuratively, of what’s possible with monitors for users. The catch, of course, is that you need a discrete graphics card, which are generally found only in desktop systems. And while that may suit most of us, there are many users out there who don’t have such features available, particularly notebook users.
HIS have provided three different hardware adapters for those users who lack the ability to add additional displays to their system setup: the Multi View II, the Multi View X2, and the Multi View+Sound. Each of these offer different features, but all work on the same premise: a USB or DVI adapter expands your ability to add more displays to your setup in a simple manner.
Let’s take a closer look at these displays from HIS.
