Graphics cards are an expensive yet essential component in any computer. The graphical processing unit (GPU) off loads computationally taxing rendering tasks from the CPU. With the explosion crypto currency, crypto miners have harnessed the power of the GPU to turn clock cycles into crypto currency while driving up the price of graphics cards to record highs. The cost of a rugged portable computer moderately increases with GPU price increase because a graphics card is just a single component in most rugged portable computers, unless you have a whole world to see with multiple displays.
The above pictures shows 1 AGS-MCCS-3U and 2 AGS-MCCD-3U stacked with mounting hardware to create a 9 monitor system with 5760 x 3240 resolution. The AGS-MCCS-3U has 3 17.3″ displays totaling 5760 x 1080 resolution and can be customized to meet a wide variety of needs within an ATX motherboard form factor. The AGS-MCCD-3U has the same display resolution without the computer.
A standalone AGS-MCCD-3U has a DVI-D, VGA, and DisplayPort port for each display and 3 x 6′ DVI-D cables are included. An additional graphics card is recommended to drive the 3 displays. If your system does not have space for a full sized graphics card nor the required ports (i.e. a laptop), the USB upgrade for the AGS-MCCD-3U has a single USB 3.0 input to control all 3 displays.
