Surround gaming goodness


Starting with patch 1.10, WoW now supports triple-head widescreen. Dual-head is rarely used for games because the center of the picture is on the join between the two screens. But with triple-head the center of the picture is in the center of the middle screen. The image above was taken on a PC with a Matrox Parhelia — official WoW support for which is somewhat of an on-again/off-again affair. However, an upcoming (it’s kinda out, sorta) product also from Matrox is promising triple-head support for existing video cards.


A supported video card list is out and the site now has a compatibilty testing program you can use prior to purchase. I’ve got a couple of rigs I’m going to be testing this on once my hardware dealer can get hold of one.

    That’s nice, but I think it’s rare that anyone has the appropriate hardware to be able to achieve this.

    Agreed, I love this game, but I can’t afford to spend $300 or so per monitor… Guess I’ll have to be happy with Widescreen for now.

    I love it! That is bad ass although there must be an other way to do this ala roll your own/dyi type fo thing. I have seen 12+ screens for flight sims that were rolled.

    I was surprized that the TripleHead2Go was only 340. canadian. Not much at all and if you troll ebay you shouuld be able to pick up some cheep screens.

    Are far as the specs, it says that a video card that only supports one screen will work in the system.

    Anyhow, thanks for this.

    Rock on,
