Four screens on one PC


When I first saw the Matrox Extio F1400 I immediately pictured this in Eric Mack’s digital sandbox. He’s been looking for high-resolution graphics to hook up to his Tablet PC and the Matrox certainly fits that description. The Extio F1400 is a remote graphics unit (RGU) that supports adding up to 4 external monitors to a single computer. The user interface of the computer (monitors, keyboard, mouse, etc) are connected to the PC through fiber optic cable for convenience and speed.


  • User devices can be separated from computer by up to 250 meters (820 feet) of fiber-optic cable
  • Support for up to 4 digital or analog monitors at a time (in “independent”* or “stretched” mode)
  • Passive cooling (heat sink with no fan) for silent operation and extra reliability
  • 6 USB 2.0 ports (downward compatible with USB 1.x) for keyboard, mouse, and other USB peripherals (4 in front and 2 in back)
  • Integrated audio hardware
  • Multi-function audio-output connector for an optical-S/PDIF signal or analog-stereo signal
  • Standard stereo-audio connectors (microphone, stereo-line-in, and stereo-line-out)
  • PCI and PCIe (PCI Express) fiber-optic interface cards (sold separately)
  • 1600 x 1200 maximum resolution per display *
  • Matrox UltraSharp Display Output Technology
  • Unified display drivers for Matrox Extio products and QID graphics cards
  • Easy-to-use Matrox PowerDesk display driver interface
  • Matrox Clone to view a copy of one display on the other displays

Eric, when you get it installed I would love to play with it. :)
