Currently working in a warehouse and we have a wall of 6 TVs to display metrics for one of the departments. We currently have 2 PCs running 3 screens each, as the GPU only has 3 DP and 1 USB-C. The GPU that we are using says that it can have a max of 4 simultaneous displays. Would it be possible to use something like a DP MST Hub with 4 HDMI outputs to surpass that 4-screen limit? Or is a secondary GPU/Desktop the only option here?

GPU: NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000

TVs: Samsung LH50BETH

Desktop Drive PC: Dell Precision 3630 Workstation

Now if you actually need 6 4K screens, another Quadro RTX 4000 might not be a terrible idea.

Anything designed to be viewed from a distance, I would probably just run at 1080p and rescale the text and graphics.

You could also just use two used gaming graphics cards, like RX470.

Yeah, I also suggested putting them down to 1080p haha. All they're displaying is metrics, 4k seems unnecessary. But it's Amazon, so if you have a problem just throw more money at it I guess. :tearsofjoy:
