Kortrijk, Belgium, 3 December 2013 – Healthcare imaging specialist Barco introduces the MXRT-7500, a brand-new 3D PCIe display controller supporting up to 4 full resolution displays. The first board to offer compatibility with the DisplayPort 1.2 interface standard, the MXRT-7500 features the PCIe 3.0 interface and the latest in AMD FireProTM 3D technology, ensuring ultra-fast loading of medical images and large datasets.

All-in-one display controller for 4-head configurations 
Fitted with 4GB of memory and an ultra-fast GPU, the top-of-the-line MXRT-7500 offers unmatched processing power for large medical datasets. The MXRT-7500 supports DirectX, OpenGL, and OpenCL and is compatible with Microsoft Windows® 7. The board can drive up to four full resolution displays over DisplayPort – making the MXRT-7500 perfect for use in 4-head configurations. This ‘all-in-one’ approach saves space on the PC, simplifies installation, and significantly reduces the total cost of ownership.
