X201, Intel Graphic Chip, dual monitor?

Uwe Brauer-2
Hi

I want to use a software, dspdfviewer, which allows to display a pdf
presentation
http://dspdfviewer.danny-edel.de/



It will take your double-width PDF file, split it in half, render the
left half to the audience (via a beamer) and the right half - which will
contain the notes you entered in your LaTeX source - on your laptop
screen.

In addition, your laptop screen will contain some counters and a
wall-clock, which may help you time your presentation right.

Both screens will be rendered and scaled completely independent of each
other, so you can use two screens with different resolutions and/or
aspect ratios, such as your 16:10 laptop screen and a 4:3 beamer, or the
other way around. Please use both devices’ native resolutions for
maximum image quality.



For this to work the graphic card should support a dual screen.


Now

lspci -nnk | grep VGA -A1

tells me

GA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Mobile 4

So does this card support dual screens?

Thanks

FYI, my X200s,

lspci -nnk | grep VGA -A1

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:2a42] (rev 07)
        Subsystem: Lenovo Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller [17aa:20e4]

supports dual screens.
