Mac Setups: Mac Pro with Three Displays
Aug 7, 2011 - 3 Comments
A Mac Pro with two extra NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 video cards and 16GB of RAM is driving these three displays, making one heck of a Mac setup. The left screen is hosting a Windows 7 virtual machine in Parallels full time, while everything else is all Mac OS X. Also pictured: an iPad 1 and iPad 2, iPhone 4, Magic Trackpad and wireless keyboard, and assorted other hardware.
Great find from Flickr!
We have a Mac Pro 2009 with four video cards (three GT120). Running eight 1920×1200 monitors (and one VGA 1280×1024 for boot). More reliable than the Windows box, but much faster with an SSD now. Some monitors are switchable to the PC for Trading. Two of the 1920×1200 screens are setup as one wide-screen monitor off a DVI-D port using an external TripleHead2Go box. Not as tidy a setup as the one shown.
Such a powerful machine with poor excuses for graphics cards… Could have got something a little stronger, especially pushing 3 displays
