Many people don’t see the benefit until they actually have multiple monitors in place. Once they do, they start brainstorming dozens of uses.

CHICAGO (PRWEB) March 12, 2013

Ace Custom Computers, a long-time Intel partner, is getting the word out that the relatively new Intel Ivy Bridge motherboards can support multiple displays (up to four) without a costly graphics card.

“This is a real breakthrough,” explained Ace Computers’ CEO John Samborski. “It’s both a convenience and a cost savings for business users that rely on multiple monitors to conduct business.”

For years, users have been able to run four displays on any desktop computer by simply adding a Quadro NVS display video card. The problem is that when they added the video card, it disabled the motherboard video. Another big downside is that the Quadro card costs $500-$700.

Next gen motherboards (for example any Intel 70 series Ivy Bridge) allow users to change the default settings. This prevents disabling the motherboard video when adding a video card. In fact, users can now enable four displays by simply adding a $50-$70 graphics card—a 90 percent reduction in cost. They end up with two displays running off the onboard video and two running off the video card.

There are many applications for this, such as digital signage and—in the financial world-- multiple ticker screens. Some everyday business uses for multiple monitors include:

1. Editing: Having at least one more monitor eliminates the need for annoying split screens when doing editing tasks such as cutting and pasting.
2. Audiovisual Editing: Users can display editing tools on one screen while working with the original image(s) on other screens.
3. Streaming Business News: Users can monitor breaking business and financial news continuously on one or more screens, while working on another.
4. Comparing Services and Products: Users can go to two or more websites and make a side-by-side comparison between products and services.
5. Comparing Websites: One of the best (and smartest) ways for businesses to see how they stack up against competitors is to compare websites side-by-side. With more than one monitor, users can directly compare--for example, a competitor’s contact page with their own.
6. Using Multiple Browsers & Operating Systems: Each browser and operating system has strengths and weaknesses. With only one screen, users have to make sacrifices in terms of add-ons, speed, compatibility, capabilities, etc.; with multiple screens, users can have the best of all worlds.

“Each business will have its own strategic uses for multiple displays,” Samborski said. “Many people don’t see the benefit until they actually have multiple monitors in place. Once they do, they start brainstorming dozens of uses.”
