Is it possible to use both integrated graphic card and a dedicated one for Multiplex monitors

Jump to solution

Hi Team,

I have a Precision 3420 with NVIDIA Quadro K620 2GB Discrete card.

So Is it possible to use both integrated graphic card and a dedicated one for multiple monitors (4 monitors - 2 connect to NVIDIA K620, 2 to intergrated graphic card)

Thanks

No. This is why they make Quadro's with 4 ports Like the P1000.

Or you could get a card that supports 3 monitors, and connect the 4th one via USB>Video, where "Video" is a port supported by that monitor. (A USB3 video dongle will give better performance than a USB2 dongle.)

Might work out to be less expensive...

USB video is neither supported or not by on board or integrated.  There are however bandwidth and power limitations.  You cant add 6 USB video.  These tend to be more expensive than a card in the long run.

If you need more than 4 a card that supports 6 for example is more likely to not have issues.

You'd have to find out if the system can support to PCI-e x16 video cards. It has two x16 slots but I don't know if both can be used for video.
