I want to build a computer with a lot of USB 3.0 (preferably) or USB 2.0 external displays. By a lot, I mean I want to compete with the 14 you guys showed off here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=heB94… or the 8 you showed off here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ncaC… . If possible, I want even more. I own over 20 displays that are ready to go for this.
The displays will show updating signal data. Think of it as something just like having a bunch of stock charts over many displays – it’s the same basic idea.
I want to build a computer that will handle this display array. What should I be looking for in terms of hardware? What specific things will help maximize the number of displays I can have and what doesn’t matter?
I know that Intel chipsets have certain limits for the maximum number of USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports. Is that what I want to maximize? What else (other than RAM) do I need to be able to maximize the number of external USB displays I can have?
Also, what types of limits have you guys seen?
