ThinkPad W510 multiple displays.

2010-11-29, 14:24 PM

First of all I'd like to say hello to everyone. My name's Jacek and I really enjoy making use of Lenovo products :smileyhappy:.

My question is... what is max. quantity of LCD monitors which I can use simultaneously with geForce Quadro FX 880m and nView software. What additional accessories do I need to use four LCDs?

Jacek.

According to this:

... it's not possible to hook up four displays to the machine. Three is a poor experience, two seems to be the most it can handle comfortably.

 

Additional screens puts a large load on the graphics card and in a mobile workstation, that's asking a lot.

I can second this. 2 monitors are fantastic. Adding a 3rd means you have to run it out of the USB bus, and picture quality and system performance become unbearable.
