    Has anyone tried this with the Dual Head DVI? I'm assuming that it would go MiniDisplayPort to VGA, then Matrox, and out. Does it work, and is there any lag?

    I used to use one with my Mini, which had the same integrated graphics as the first gen MBA. It worked fine for everything except two WUXGA panels, which are blurry.

    If you look on the Matrox website, 2xWUXGA can only go to 57Hz, which is a way of saying it does not work for most digital panels...

    I will hook the matrox up to the MBA and see how it works.

    Where do you see that? The only one that has a refresh rate that low with the DVI out is 2x(1920x1200)? linky.

    Anyway. I'm using the new MBA with the 9400M. Just curious is anyone has tried it.
