|Multi-monitors for Diamond/Diamond Plus 1151|
Question: How many monitors can the Compucon Diamond or Diamond Plus 1151 desktop system support?
The Compucon Diamond's motherboard has 1 x VGA (D-sub), 1 x DVI-D, and 1 x HDMI port onboard. Assuming a compatible processor has been installed, this provides up to 2 simultaneous displays without further modification. The 2 monitors can be connected to any 2 of the 3 available port options.
To support additional monitors, adding a discrete graphics card would add additional displays. To do this the 'iGPU Multi-Monitor' setting must be enabled in the BIOS.
For example, installing an NVIDIA GT710 1GB GDDR3 discrete graphics card can provide a further 3 independent displays via its VGA/HDMI/DVI-D ports.
