Want to run your own mini Las Vegas Sphere? With this video card you can run a dozen screens cheaply – and who knows, it might even be compatible with Bitcoin mining motherboards

There’s no doubt that a multi-monitor setup increases productivity. My desktop PC has three 4K displays and that seems normal to me. If you ever want to go further and, say, have eight screens and create your own mini Las Vegas Sphere, it’s possible, with the right hardware.

Most graphics cards only have four output ports, and most motherboards would struggle to accommodate two long GPUs. The solution, from Synaptics, is a single-slot PCIe x1 card based on the company’s DisplayLink DL-7400 chip.
