KFA2 GeForce GTX 570 MDS Packs Quad-Monitor Support

KFA2, the European branch of the Taiwanese graphics card maker Galaxy, has already released into the market a series of Nvidia GeForce solutions with multi-display support, but the company won't stop here and will soon launch a new graphics card in the MDP series based on the GTX 570 design.

KFA2 was able to overcome the limitations imposed by Nvidia's hardware by using a third-party IDT VMM1400 controller, a chip that is usually found in multi-display hub devices.

Going for a quick look, KFA2's latest creation seems to resemble the company's previous GeForce GTX 570 design as it uses the same same custom cooling solution, but which was now painted black together with the PCB for a more aggressive look.

However, unlike the other GTX 570 model in KFA2 lineup, the MDT version comes with a dual-link DVI output, a mini-HDMI port and three other DVI-D connectors, which can support up to four monitors simultaneously, double than Nvidia's reference design.

Three of the displays attached to the card cam be combined to form a single surface (for multi-monitor gaming or productivity) with a resolution of 5760x1080 pixels.

Sadly, KFA2 hasn't disclosed any other information regarding the GTX 570 MDS, but most probably this will come overclocked out of the factory judging by its aggressive design.

The pricing of KFA2's creation also wasn't provided, but SweClockers suggests we should see this graphics card reach retail in November of this year.

The GeForce GTX 570 is based on Nvidia's GF110 GPU and it packs 480 stream processors, 60 texture units, 40 ROP units and a 320-bit wide memory bus that is usually connected to 1.25GB of GDDR5 video buffer.

Nvidia's default operating frequencies are rated at 732MHz for the GPU and 950MHz (3800MHz data rate) for the memory.
