DisplayLink drivers released, no 2D/3D acceleration

DisplayLink beta drivers

DisplayLink recently announced beta drivers for the Mac for its DisplayLink USB line of monitor extension products, but said the drivers do not yet enable 2D or 3D acceleration on the platform. The USB device allows users to connect up to another four DVI or VGA displays to a computer, ideal for computers that do not have many monitor extension capabilities such as the Mac mini. DisplayLink notes that the devices require Mac OS X 10.4.11 Tiger or Leopard 10.5.2.

Due to the lack of acceleration support, DisplayLink warns users that the device will draw windows and other interface items more slowly than the Windows Vista alternative. The company also says that OpenGL-enabled applications could cause problems, anywhere from not objects or textures correctly if at all, to applications not functioning properly.
