AMD FirePro™ W600 is the most powerful solution
available for configuring multi-screen display walls—
no other single-slot professional graphics card is
capable of driving up to six displays (with
independent audio streams), features the latest
graphics memory technology for exceptional
multimedia performance and only consumes 75W
maximum power.2
You can find them on tradeshow floors, in restaurants,
in corporate conference rooms, in command and
control centers and in amusement parks. Thanks to
emerging technologies and decreasing display costs,
more corporations, event venues, broadcast studios,
department stores and other locations are turning to multi-display configurations that bring together vivid
imagery, video, animations and information designed to attract, inform, influence and engage audiences.
AMD FirePro™ W600 is the ideal professional graphics product to power multi-screen display walls designed
for Entertainment & Events (e.g. concerts, sports events, stage productions, etc.) and for Collaborative
Environments (e.g. corporate video conferencing, command and control centers, convention centers, etc.),
and other segments of the digital signage market. Each AMD FirePro™ W600 features 2GB of GDDR5
memory, the latest memory technology designed specifically for graphics architectures, and is capable of
supporting real-time 2D and 3D high resolution images, animations, 3D content and live/prerecorded video
(HD and SD) with exceptional visual quality.

For more information,
MD Eyefinity technology supports up to six DisplayPort™ monitors on an enabled graphics card. Supported display quantity, type and resolution vary by model and board design; confirm specifications with
manufacturer before purchase. To enable more than two displays, or multiple displays from a single output, additional hardware such as DisplayPort-ready monitors or DisplayPort 1.2 MST-enabled hubs may be
required. Maximum two active adapters supported. See for full details.
MD FirePro™ W600 is a single-slot solution featuring 2GB GDDR5 memory, multi-stream audio support and six Mini DisplayPort outputs, compared to the single-slot Maxtox M-9188 with eight Mini DisplayPort
outputs and 1G or 2GB of DDR2 memory, consuming 75W maximum power. As of January 2013, Matrox does not offer any product with GDDR5 memory that supports DisplayPort 1.2 and multi-stream audio
support, and Nvidia does not offer a single-slot solution capable of driving six or more displays without DisplayPort 1.2 MST hubs. FP-26
Multi-GPU SLS support planned for a future driver release
MD FirePro™ W600 features six display outputs, consumes 75W max power and costs $599 USD (MSRP), compared to Matrox M-9188 with eight display outputs, consumes 75W max power and costs
