Intel® Embedded Media and Graphics Driver (Intel® EMGD) FAQ

Display outputs

1.    What is multi-graphics processing unit (multi-GPU) multi-monitor support?


Multi-GPU multi-monitor support is defined as allowing the GPU integrated into Intel’s embedded chipset to concurrently function with a discrete GPU solution provided most commonly on an external PCI-Express* graphics card. This allows for generation of unique display timings on greater than two panels or monitors simultaneously.


2.    How do I get integrated low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) to display on my system?


First, choose an embedded Intel® chipset with an integrated LVDS controller. Integrated LVDS ports are available on the following embedded chipsets and systems-on-a-chip (SoCs), and are supported with Intel® Embedded Media and Graphics Driver (Intel® EMGD):


  • Intel® System Controller Hub US15W/US15WP/WPT chipsets
  • Intel® Atom™ processor E6xx series


Second, follow the instructions in the user guide for the appropriate platform to enable this display by properly setting the “PortOrder” to include the value for LVDS port. Based on your settings, LVDS display can be either primary display or secondary.


The Configuration EDitor (CED) also allows you to easily select and configure the integrated LVDS ports on the embedded Intel chipsets. Please refer to the help in CED for details.


3.    Does Intel EMGD provide driver support for a DisplayPort* output?


No. The Intel System Controller Hub US15W/US15WP/WPT chipsets and the Intel Atom processor E6xx series do not have hardware-level support for DisplayPort natively, so Intel EMGD cannot enable this type of display output.
