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.

  • Example: Diamond/Diamond Plus systems can have up to 5 displays using any 2 of the onboard ports (HDMI / DVI-D / VGA) plus 3 ports off a discrete graphics card (using whatever ports it supports).
