Club 3D Announce Affordable Multiple Display Hub

When you think of multi-display set-ups you think of expensive graphics cards and processors as pre-requisites before you’ve even invested into three monitors which are expensive enough in themselves. Most of the time triple monitor set-ups aren’t even used for gaming, but for productivity purposes, so that begs the question is there not a cheaper way to get a triple monitor set-up?

With all that said Club 3D have come up with a solution to this problem with their Multi Stream Hub (MST) that allows you to turn a single display port output into three display port outputs. From there you can then connect up to three monitors via VGA, DVI, HDMI or DisplayPort using the appropriate cables. This allows you to turn any device that supports display port into a functional triple display set-up. This means you can potentially use a cheap laptop, tablet or PC, but of course you need to make the investment in three displays which will always be a reasonably expensive outlay.

The Club 3D MST splits  the display signal from a DisplayPort 1.2 connection and provides three separate signals. The MST is capable of driving up to three 2560 by 1600 displays, although most people are more likely to use three 1080p displays.

The main selling point of the Club 3D MST is it is an affordable solution to the multi-monitor problem. What do you think of their new product?
