This is quite normal as the product only began shipping some one to two months ago. This is a nice option for parents who want to restrict their children from watching movies with adult content. This is provided that you have set the DVDMax option to scale the movies into full screen. Nothing new here as this option is almost a must for any video card driver. In fact, the performance at bit for q3demo2 was better than bit for low resolutions. This driver also supports the output of custom display resolutions and timings under the “PowerRes” feature.

Now, that’s certainly a case for Mulder. Unfortunately Matrox never described the functionality of this component in-depth so little is known about it. Please uninstall your previous drivers. Anyway, I believe there are more than enough results for you guys or gals?

G’s rendering pipelined uses what Matrox called “Vibrant Color Quality 2” VCQ2a functionality in which all internal 3D calculations are done with bit precision. Some product g40 that I know never even matured after the product was delivered into the market many many months ago.

NET Framework is required. Over the past five years alone, Matrox has been recognised with international awards for its innovation in graphics and video technology.

I was hoping that the OpenGL ICD in the newer driver revision would be improved, but instead, its performance dropped as compared to the older 5.

Matroc ” Toucan “, it was a more powerful and refined version of its predecessor, the G This is one of the most talked about feature of the G line of video cards.


However, the G Max strength lies in the Rasterizer and Fill Rate tests where it scored a lot higher than the rest. It was also equipped with a hardware transform and lighting unit capable of y400 20—30 million triangles per second.

Instead of rendering an entire scene, stencil-buffering determines the area which does not matroz rendering, thus, saving unnecessary rendering. For more information, click here 1. Click on the images to see the full view of the picture itself.

The Enhance Text option really helps make text look sharper on the TV. Basically, this rendering engine ensures that richly textured 3D environments are rendered with vibrant colors and sharp contrasts.

Most graphic cards do not support this and mztrox requires the user to lower their primary display refresh rates to 50Hz or 60Hz in order to output the display simultaneously to a TV.

However, if proper care was not taken, the color precision can be lost on each texture pass which would result in cumulative rounding errors and ugly dither patterns appearing in the image. It contains various features, such as full hardware alpha-blended sub-picture blending and real-time aspect ratio conversion.

According to Matrox, multi-texturing requires the combination and blending of various textures onto a single polygon.

Numerous tabs on the display properties window is available for you to configure each option. Matrox’s award-winning Powerdesk display drivers and control panel integrated Dualhead in a very flexible and functional way that become world-renowned for its effectiveness. The Matrox Millenium G series of graphic accelerators offers all kinds of graphic processing you will ever need in a single card.


Subsequently inthey were also the first to introduce high-quality video editing to the consumer market with its Rainbow Runner Series. OK, to start off the second round of competition, let’s take a look at how well it performed in Quake II, again. The Monitor Settings tab allows one to configure the proper display refresh rate for each resolution.

On the other hand, the DualHead Zoom option actually uses the second display to zoom into any area that you have selected to magnify in your primary display.

We can see that the GMax suffers little performance hit when moving from bit to bit rendering. Internally the G is a bit processor, using what Matrox calls a “DualBus” architecture.

The resulting zoomed area could be displayed on the secondary display. Retrieved from ” https: The TNT2-Ultra is the champion at lower resolutions, but performed a little slower at high resolutions.

Unfortunately, because of the identical core clock and due to lower memory bandwidth, G was slower than G in games. Well, enough of my usual rantings, I’m sure most of you are dying to find vidfo just how well this card performs as compared to the other cards that’s available in the market.

It is purely a Direct3D 6.
