Ivy Bridge Macbooks Could Have Triple Display Functionality

Intel’s Ivy Bridge processors could bring triple display support to coming Macbook Airs and Macbook Pros.

Mac Rumors is citing a leaked Intel road map that points to the possibility of Ivy Bridge processor supporting up to three independent displays.

As explained by Mac Rumors, the Sandy Bridge processor on current Macs can drive two independent displays, allowing the Macbook Air to have one external display. The 13-inch Macbook Pro can drive two external display by turning off its internal display. Larger Macbook Pros have discrete graphics chips in addition to Sandy Bridge, so they can simultaneously drive one external display and two external displays.

Ivy Bridge, the CPU most likely to power future models of the Macbook Air and the Macbook Pro, would give even smaller Macbook Airs options to expand its display options with external displays. Larger screen real estate could boost production for certain people, particularly those working with graphics. But on the whole, more screens could just be plain awesome.

Of course, prospective Macbook buyers should take into account the possibility of a 15-inch Macbook Air with Ivy Bridge.
