The Matrox M9188 is an 8 headed video card that fits into a single PCIe slot. Each output on the card is mini DisplayPort, but it ships with eight mini DisplayPort to DVI adapters so you’re fine whatever you’re running. It has 2Gb of memory and it can display a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1600 per output in DisplayPort or 1920 x 1200 per output in DVI mode. It works with Vista (32/64bit), Windows7, XP (32/64bit), Server 2003/2008 (32/64bit) and Linux. If 8 monitors aren’t enough, stick two cards in and get 16 monitors. Sheesh, they should have called this thing the Hydra. Priced at US$1995 and available at the end of the year.
