REVIEW: Matrox TripleHead2Go Digital Part 6
Desktop at 3.840 x 1.024 pixels (Click for enlarged view)
A desktop across three monitors with a resolution of 3.840 x 1.024 is already very impressive. For example, 19-inch LCDs have a pixel size of 0,294 mm and a native resolution of 1.280 x 1.024 pixels. The display surface is therefore 37,7 x 30,1 cm. If three 19-inch monitors are placed side by side, a pure display surface of 112,8 x 30,1cm is created. This is an extraordinary panorama.

The Matrox TripleHead2Go Digital solution provides a desktop with a huge amount of space. A certain period of time is needed to get used to it at the start, but you get used to the huge space within a short time. Any amount of different windows and applications can be distributed across the generous display surface. The result is a completely new feeling when you are working – and a completely new way of working.

With the Matrox TripleHead2Go Surround Gaming Utility, a large number of games can be adjusted to the high resolution. After being started, the Gaming Utility looks for games installed and enters these games into the overview list with a tick. If you wish, the program can adjust or optimise conditions for these games.

Above all for old games, which often have no widescreen resolution, this is a useful aid. For newer games such as Half-Life 2 or for modifications that are based on the HL² engine, no adjustment is necessary, since the HL² engine is very flexible when it comes to resolutions.
