Dual-Head Graphics Target XMC Slot

XMC slots looking for high-performance graphics can try Thales Computers’ XMC-G72. This dual-head XMC mezzanine card has an x8 PCI Express interface that delivers an AMD/ATI M72-CSP128 graphics controller with 128-Mbyte on-chip GDDR3 memory and dual outputs. DVI/CRT or dual-CRT versions are available. The rugged conduction-cooled version routes the digital DVI video output to the Pn4 rear I/O connector. Drivers support 2D and 3D acceleration as well as DirectX and OpenGL. The two outputs can handle six concurrent live video feeds without loading the CPU.
