Matrox TripleHead2Go DP Edition External GXM

Matrox TripleHead2Go DP Edition External GXM
Key Features
  • Drive 2 or 3 Displays from 1 Connector
  • DisplayPort (DP) Input/Output
  • Works for DVI/VGA/HDMI/MDP via Adapter
  • Max Resolution Per Monitor: 1920 x 1080
The TripleHead2Go DP Edition External GXM from Matrox is an external Graphics eXpansion Module that lets you drive 3 displays, each at up to 1920 x 1080 resolution, from a single DisplayPort (DP) connector. This allows you to drive 3 displays from a laptop or from a desktop that only has one DisplayPort. You can also drive the 3 displays at 1680 x 1050 resolution each, or you can drive just 2 at 1920 x 1200 resolution each. The module allows you to drive displays using DVI, VGA, HDMI and Mini-DP outputs, provided you have the required adapter cables (not included). You can even connect a second TripleHead2Go to your graphics hardware to support up to 6 monitors at a time!

The module uses your system's existing GPU to provide high-quality, uncompressed graphics and video across all monitors. You can run different applications on each display or view one application across multiple monitors. A multi monitor set-up allows you to organize your workspace more efficiently, multi-task more comfortably and make fewer mistakes. Compatible with both Mac and PC, a wide variety of graphics cards, and most chipsets by ATI, Intel and nVIDIA, the TripleHead2Go DP Edition is a great way to quickly and easily add triple monitor capability to a notebook or desktop PC.

can i connect this unit to dell xps 15 only via thunderbolt? No display port on this system.
Asked by: Raymond
It depends if you have Thunderbolt 3 or 2. If you have Thunderbolt 2, you can use a mini displayport to displayport cable that comes in the box. However, if your port is Thunderbolt 3, then you need a dock such as because there is no cable that is Thunderbolt 3 to Displayport.

I have an alienware 17 r3. it has an hdmi out and a usb c (thunderbolt 3) out. Can i connect to TripleHead2Go DP Edition (T2G-DP-MIF)? would i need a usb-c to display port adapter to do the same?
Asked by: Samvida N.
i have tried to connect it through the HDMI it didn't work because the idea of most of the cables are DISPLAYPORT TO HDMI and not HDMI TO DISPLAYPORT and the HDMI signal needs power, but still there is a display port in the alienware 17 r3 you can connect it through it.there could be a solution but i didn't try it yet, there are few cables from HDMI to DISPLAYPORT LIKE StarTech HDMI or DVI to DisplayPort Active Converter IT MIGHT BE WORK

can you buy adapters for Hdmi and have 3 screens run from a laptop with an hdmi pot at full 1080p. WIll that work using this to run full 1080 p to 3 screens with adapters?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, you can purchase adapters for DisplayPort to HDMI. I would recommend the StarTech adapters (search B&H for DP2HDMI2). However, the maximum 16x9 HD resolution at 60Hz you can get when using three (3) outputs is 1280x720. If you are using 50Hz, then you can accomplish the 1920x1080 resolution you listed. You can see a list of supported resolutions by Matrox on Matrox's website.Note: HDMI is not supported configuration by Matrox, only VGA and DVI, so if you choose to use HDMI, you basically run the risk of it not working. The main issue is that HDCP (High Definition Content Protection) comes into play with computers.

I use this with my MacBook pro with thunderbolt output. I was not able to ever get all 3 monitors to work on the outputs, but that could be the adapters and specific monitors i was using. I am able to use it with 2 monitors.
