Using multiple displays gives productivity a power boost, but also can be source of energy drain, particularly in a multi-user corporate environment. And with energy conservation being a priority for many of the world’s IT departments, DisplayLink technology provides a way to solve the trade-off between performance and power consumption.
Traditional desktop systems use additional discrete graphics cards to power multiple displays. To lighten the load, DisplayLink provides USB graphics technology found in the forms of adapters, docks and displays. The benefits and energy savings are significant:
A USB graphics solution uses up to 80% less power than a discrete solution.
Using four displays consumes much less power than you think. With USB graphics, there’s only a 22% increase in power usage over a single display configuration.
People with multiple displays are more than 50% more productive than those using a single display.
Now, with simple USB graphics technology, notebooks are just as effective and easy to use with multiple displays as dedicated PCs.
More screen real estate minimizes the need to print and compare documents.
Multi-display with USB graphics in a corporate environment can result in lower electrical consumption, lower building cooling costs and less strain on surge protectors.
