Xorg supports display cloning, but copying graphics data to the cloned 
display will consume some bus bandwidth even if DMA is used. This can 
add significant load to designs using low-budget memory subsystems.

Also, I'm not sure whether the VPU-accelerated video playback will be 
handled across the cloned displays :(.
