Matrox adds Luma series of graphics cards with Intel Arc GPUs

Matrox Video has launched its Luma series of graphics cards with Intel Arc GPUs.

The series consists of three single-slot cards: the Luma A310, a low-profile fanless card; the Luma A310F, a low-profile fanned card; and the Luma A380, a full-sized fanned card.

Matrox developed the Luma range to satisfy significant demand in the mainstream graphics market for driving multiple screens, with a balance between size, reliability, and performance for different applications. The new Luma series is aimed at high-reliability and embedded PC applications in the medical, digital signage, control room, video wall, and industrial markets. 

The Luma A310 card has a fanless design and offers quiet operation and eliminates a point of failure (the fan), thereby increasing reliability and extending the card's life. The Luma A310 is suitable for anyone needing a small card that fits in a small-form-factor system. Examples include industrial systems that sit on a table or behind a monitor, or surgical displays in an operating room, where there are stringent requirements for reliability. 

The single-slot, low-profile Luma A310F card is suitable for applications requiring more performance, such as commercial gaming, where casino machines or arcade games require a small card and extra performance to drive video and 3D rendering. Another application is in the retail space to drive multimonitor graphics, such as digital signage and digital menu boards. 

The full-sized, single-slot Luma A380 card packs even more performance and more GDDR6 (6 GB versus 4 GB) than the other Luma models. In the healthcare market, the Luma A380 can power volumetric rendering in medical workstations. In transportation and aviation applications, it delivers multimonitor graphics and video with the best possible performance. In federal and defense applications, such as live operation control rooms and PC-based simulators, users can rely on it to control medium to large video display walls showing multiple video feeds. 

All three Luma cards have four outputs and can drive four 5K60 monitors. (All three can also drive up to 8K60 or 5K/120 displays but are limited to two outputs when doing so.) They are compatible with all the latest graphical capabilities, supporting DirectX 12 Ultimate, OpenGL 4.6, Vulkan 1.3, and OpenCL 3.0, as well as Intel's oneAPI for compute tasks and the Intel Distribution of OpenVINO toolkit for AI development. The cards also have class-leading codec engines that can both encode and decode H.264, H.265, VP9, and AV1.
