Icon"When it comes to a multi-headed environment under Linux, there are two popular options for consumers - Xinerama and TwinView. TwinView was developed by NVIDIA for allowing multiple monitors to be powered by a single GPU with their array of GeForce graphics cards. On the other hand, Xinerama was originally developed by DEC under the name of PanoramiX, and was later incorporated into the X Windows System as Xinerama. With Xinerama and TwinView being two of the popular multi-headed options for Linux users, we have decided to study the frame-rate performance for both of these configurations, as well as a traditional single-head setup, under a variety of popular games."
