Matrox C-Series graphics cards deliver outstanding performance, stability, and reliability for demanding commercial applications.

C-Series includes the world’s fastest fanless quad card and a high-performance six-head card with board-to-board framelock

MONTREAL — Sept. 10, 2014 — Matrox® Graphics Inc. today announced the first two cards in the eagerly anticipated Matrox C-Series™—the Matrox C420 quad-output and the Matrox C680 six-output PCI Express® graphics cards—engineered for stability, reliability and advanced multi-display capabilities. Both cards feature 2GB of on-board memory and mini DisplayPort connectivity. They deliver outstanding performance for control room, digital signage, enterprise, industrial, security, A/V, and embedded system applications.

The low-profile Matrox C420 quad card features passive cooling for increased reliability and silent operation. Its low power consumption makes it a perfect fit for small-form-factor and embedded systems. The single-slot Matrox C680 supports up to six displays or projectors. Compatibility with the latest Ultra-HD and 4K panels makes C680 a versatile solution for multi-screen workstation setups. More displays can be supported by inserting two C680 cards into a system. The board-to-board framelock feature ensures synchronization of all displays to reduce tearing on digital signage and video walls.

Both new video cards work with the robust Matrox PowerDesk™ desktop management software for Windows that lets users easily configure and manage multi-display setups. PowerDesk gives professionals a comprehensive set of tools to control a variety of display configurations including stretched or independent desktops, clone mode, pivot, bezel management, and edge overlap. Matrox advanced desktop management features also let users determine where and how program windows are displayed on the desktop—a productivity tool designed to enhance multi-display experiences.

“This introduction of C-Series expands our line of multi-display graphics card to offer our customers higher performance, higher display density solutions,” said Caroline Injoyan, business development manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. “We will continue to support our professional users with the premium technical assistance, long product life cycles and easy-to-use PowerDesk desktop management software that Matrox is known for.”
