This shows that the GMax is actually using the VCQ2 rendering engine which renders 3D graphics at bit and then dithered down to bit. I did not try all software DVD players to see if it works, but if it is able to output my Southpark episodes full screen on the TV using Windows Media Player, I don’t see why other softwares cannot do the same. Again you are given the choice to set the quality of the picture reproduced on your TV. Now, that’s certainly a case for Mulder. As said earlier, G suffered at launch from driver problems.

EMBM requires either specialized hardware within the chip millrnnium its calculations or a more duallhead and programmable graphics pipeline, such as later DirectX 8. The DualHead display offers a wide range of possibilities, for both gamers and professionals alike.

Calling up the Display Properties, one would be confronted with a jillennium of options to configure your video card. Game-2 In this scene, it is harder to make out any noticeable difference. Following the lead of 3dfx, Matrox chose to divide the two Millennium G products according to three factors: Basically, this rendering engine ensures that richly textured 3D environments are rendered with vibrant colors and sharp contrasts.

The G continually dualjead official driver updates into Where many cards were crippled by blurry output, especially as the resolution and refresh rate increased, the Matrox cards delivered very sharp and clear images. If you are looking for the most recent drivers, please click here. Subsequently inthey were also the first to introduce high-quality video editing to the consumer market with its Rainbow Runner Series. Anyway, we shall all know in due time if my guess is right.


Well, that’s about it. A bit bus reduces the board’s complexity and cost because fewer traces have to be used, and potentially the pin-count of the graphics processor can be significantly reduced if the chip is designed only for a bit bus.

The same driver versions were used in the Quake II tests. The chip had 3 pixel pipelines with 3 texture units each.

Video capturing was possible but drivers are still based on VfW. Matrox, a successful player in the graphics scene for many years now, has finally decided to break this mold of “me too product” and matroz something new and exciting. The system was equipped with MB of SDRAM and different processor speeds were also used to assess the difference in speed gain with higher processor speed.

Typically, the drop in performance is less than 1 fps at lower resolutions, but at higher resolutions the drop ranges from about fps. I was hoping to run Quake II at higher resolutions of x, but somehow, the program reported an error, and I had to stop the test at x Well, enough mollennium my usual rantings, I’m sure most of you are dying to find out just how well this card performs as compared to the other cards that’s available in the market. It was also equipped with a hardware transform and lighting unit capable of processing 20—30 million triangles per second.


Matrox “SE” drivers have a standard interface that doesn’t require. Even S3, the relatively quiet member of this family announced two different performance flavors of their Savage4, the regular and the Pro.

This is a really cool feature which adds a lot more gaming enjoyment as you never know what kind millnnium visual surprises await you. I continued to test the card further with the more recent driver version, which is 5.

A Matrox “DualBus” chip consists of twin unidirectional buses internally, each moving data into or out of the chip. Windows 98 Second Edition Build 4.

The Enhance Text option really helps make text look sharper on the TV. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. The gaming possibilities are endless.

This is provided that you have set the DVDMax option to scale the movies into full screen. Imagine how much more saliva he would leave on my keyboard if he sees it matdox done on the G Max. It does this by improving on the 96 constant registers specified for by DirectX 8. It added millehnium new features to DualHead that worked with Internet Explorer to make pages show up on both screens at once.
