Bro, does your rig even lift?

really like the matrox dualhead features..... because (acording to the webiste) you can conect two monitors at the same time, or a monitor and a tv , etc ,etc.... allowing you to extend your desktop into another screen.

i noticed that the ATI dual head features dont seem that good. it offers no zoom... and correct me if i'm wrong.... it seems to be able to conect either a VGA or DVI and a TV, but not able to conect 2 VGA... is this true????

wich should be the best choice fro resolume?

i have an ATI radeon 9200SE in my home PC and a Matrox g550 in my live PC, they both have excellent quality output, but i think the matrox has more features and is a little more flexible.
Also the matrox drivers seem to work with a little less problems.
My advice - go with Matrox.

you can connect a normal VGA monitor to the DVI output using an adapter, which is mostly included. so you can also use the dual head function using two VGA monitors...

i have an ATI RADEON 9500 PRO and i am pretty satisfied with it.

You can use two vga output at the same time on ati cards,
but u will experience some disadvanteges of the dual monitor settings. I wander why such a great manufacturer didn't create some working driver:( I have sucked so much with the ati dual monitor settings, like crashes, etc...

But it needs the corect dirver I think.

hello, I am almost ready to buy laptop ASUS with RADEON
card eaither Radeon 7500 or Radeon 9000. I have found
on ATI website both cards supports multi-monitor settings
however I would very much appreciate if someone with ASUS having either of the Radeon card could confirm the dual monitor funtion works fine.

I have tried setup multimonitor function on DELL Latitiude D600 with Radeon 9000 but I was not able to have different applications on the LCD laptop monitor and VGA external monitor at the same time...
DOES it mean that on LCD and external VGA monitor I must have same display and to see multi dispaly effect I must have connected projector or TV thru video output /s-video or chinch/ ?

ich have a radeon 9000 mobility with 64mb in my laptop and have no troubles with it, i can connect a second monitor to enlarge the desktop ore use it a cloned monitor or as dvd max screen, at the same time i can connect a tv screen and can even choose what to do with it, i can clone the first screen or make an enlargment or dvd max screen.

using the tv-out needed a bit of work because of this black borders, i had to install readeon tweaker and activated overscan, thats it

i like my radeon and have no problems, i am running my notebook at party for about 12 hours using resolume and a mp3 recordingsoftware, there were no crashs for about 20 acts

if anyone is having problems with any ati card.. first go and download the new catalyst drivers.. they rock.. and goto or .org and get the mobility fixer if you have a laptop...
