Flexible Display Interface--For a 3rd monitor?

Posted 23 November 2012 - 12:55 PM

I'm thinking about upgrading my motherboard/cpu/ram. In the process of shopping for a new motherboard, I read that motherboards that support Intel's sandy bridge or higher have this thing called Flexible Display Interface or FDI.

Supposedly it makes it possible so that you can have dedicated video card and the board's on-board video running at the same time.

This would be very nice as my current card only supports two outputs and I really want to add an additional third monitor.

Does anyone know or have tried this out yet?

I couldn't tell you the specifics of which chipset etc. But I've had no problem with my HP store built machines using my 4 port card and the onboard at the same time.

Two port cards a cheap. If nothing else just drop in two of them.


6 monitors = Lots of development real estate!
