    multipoint 2011 and dual quad cards.

    Hi,

    Has anyone had much luck with dual quad cards in multipoint 2011. I'm looking at either 2x ATI 5570 or 2 x Matrox M9140 (prefer the matrox as it comes with all the adaptors!).

    Also be interested to know what USB audio/USB multimedia hub's people have managed to get to work with these. I'm also looking at remotefx capable thin clients and dell seems to be a good bet right now with the fx170. Anyone got experience on this, will show thanks via a pint (ermm coffee lol!)

    I'm currently building a system based on 2 x FirePro 2460 quad displayport cards.

    Just got to install multipoint server on it which I will do this afternoon.

    I am using D-Link powered 7 port usb hubs and logitech usb headsets.

    Thanks ben, we're also considering looking at Ncomputing L300's as well. VeryPc just sent me their four card setup which does 8 units. I'm thinking of doing 8 units, 3 USB and two ethernet or 5 ethernet. However I'd like to take advantage of remotefx however there pitching the L300 as just as good. So i'm a little bit stuck on which to buy now haha!

    My deployments are consisting of.

    HP Z210 workstation with 1 x FirePro 2460 supporting 4 clients.

    Custom built i7 16GB Ram 60GB SSD PC with 2 x Firepro 2460 supporting 8 clients each.

    I am also looking into usb clients for areas like the library and the HP T100 is available at a good price atm circa £65

    Dell have a whitepaper on this where they use the magic control tech clients instead you can see it here: http://i.dell.com/sites/content/busi...l-optiplex.pdf

    it's for the older version but it's a fairly decent guide. Just looking at the l300's on youtube now...

    Interesting shame the hubs they are using aren't powered and they also don't seem to be available in the uk.

    I'm using the FirePro 2460 which presents 4 x mini display port connectors, 4 x mini dp to dp adaptors, 4 x Upto 5m DP cable, 4 x Sapphire DP to DVI Active adaptors.

    So I can get to around 6m from the host with my direct graphics connected solution.

    The usb over ethernet ones they do look intresting as well. Apparently they own the license for it. I might email them and see if their's any UK disti's.

    Just to confirm that my custom build machine with twin quad firepro cards does indeed drive 8 dvi monitors.
