Matrox Graphics Inc. has unveiled a new multi-display upgrade device that allows two displays to be used with one computer. The new DualHead2Go is an external device that connects to the monitor connector of a computer and adds support for another display.

The DualHead2Go uses the company's patent-pending technology to divide the monitor output from the computer into two separate displays, one showing the left half of this "monitor" and the other showing the right half. The company said the operating system treats DualHead2Go like a monitor supporting resolutions twice as wide as standard resolutions.

With the Matrox multi-display support, more than one display can be used with a single system. The DualHead2Go setup doesn't require opening a computer, inserting parts into it, or replacing any hardware or software, said the company. This multi-display solution uses a computer's existing graphics hardware and software for 2D, 3D and video acceleration. It includes support for Microsoft Windows 2000 and Windows XP, and is compatible with a wide range of laptops and with other systems.

The list price for the DualHead2Go is $169.
