Gaming enthusiasts is Sapphire’s primary audience; we know this market very well. The Vid-2X product does not target the same audience. Eyefinity is already well established in this space and one could argue that gaming across 3 screens is quite common at the high end.
Vid-2X targets gaming market in a different way. Forester Research forecasts that desktops will comprise less than 20% of total PC sales by 2015 and more than 50% of the sales will be laptops, netbooks and mini PCs. This large market is split into many categories that can be divided into consumer and commercial. Within this large market many will not play games and the vast majority will be satisfied using the integrated display or use a single external display.
With the ever increasing speed of processors and the advent of APU’s these small form factor PCs increasingly support enthusiast gaming titles. With the Eyefinity movement the advantages of wider fields of view (FOV) and the ability to move HUDs away from the main display are widely known advantages amongst the gaming community. The Vid-2X is the perfect addition to the serious gamer that requires or prefers a mobile platform.
