I’m using the built-in Intel graphics of the 4770k (Haswell) on an ASUS mobo. Both monitors are on DVI. I’m using the built-in ‘Extended Desktop’.
(I have not used 3 monitors since the days of VGA with a Matrox ‘triple-head’ and I dropped it because the sheer width of 3 screens blocked the sound field of my near field speakers.)
With Cubase 8, it -seems- like the windowing is much better. So I was thinking I could place a 3rd monitor ABOVE the 1st two (like a pyramid) and keep VSL or Kontakt up there out of the way.
SO: Does Windows 8 (or the Intel graphics) support a 3rd monitor? Ideally I was hoping that I could plug in any old video card and Windows would recognise it as the -3rd- screen automatically.
Or does one need to disable the onboard video and purchase 1 or 2 new video cards (like gamers do with SLI)?
I don’t ‘game’ so this whole deal is an undiscovered country.
