Have seen a few big 3dfx collections but never a Matrox one i’ve got the Millenium pci , G pci and agp, G, G and 2x G Max and i like them. This feature virtually add details such as scratches, surface textures or water rippling effects just to name a few to your 3D game environment, thus, adding a lot more visual enjoyment rather than just frame rates. You can have an opened spreadsheet on one display, and your favourite word processor on another. There is nothing really bad about the card except that it did not deliver the performance that all gamers wanted. According to Matrox, multi-texturing requires the combination and blending of various textures onto a single polygon. Due to time constraints, I did not run any further tests. Thus, if you have DVDs from different regions, you might find this a big problem.

I had to format it that way in order to squeeze all the numbers into the table. Here, we see the actual behaviour of the G in real world application. Well, if you are matroxx of numbers already, the comparison basically shows that the GMax is more superior in terms of performance at at high resolutions using bit rendering.

Matrox G400

This shows that the GMax is actually using the VCQ2 rendering engine which renders 3D graphics at bit and then dithered down to bit. The system was equipped with MB of SDRAM and different processor speeds were also used to zg the difference in speed gain with higher processor speed.

Marrox In this scene, it is harder to make out any noticeable difference. The best example for the use of stencil buffering is in flight simulator games, where the view of the cockpit is masked out since it does not need constant rendering, and gg400 the scene outside the cockpit is rendered. Matrox g later was nearly on par with nvidia if i recall correcly,but in ’99 i chose the 3d blaster tnt2 ultra.


Nothing really fancy and almost every function available here are standard.

Views Read Edit View history. The dual bus architecture is not new to Matrox. To date, there are already a number of games that support this t400, and Matrox promises more titles to come. Matrox tried to make stable drivers for several months but with no luck. I am trying to build some sort of maxed out Matrox MSI retro pc, however it turns out more difficult to put together than I thought. In order to preserve the color accuracy, the VCQ2 rendering engine actually uses a bpp color throughout the rendering pipeline to produce smoother color gradients.

Besides that, the price tag is not small either. The G continually received official driver updates into Mwtrox, you can still choose to use other software DVD players to obtain better features, but marrox a price.

This is another plus to gaming enjoyment as opposed to increased frame rates. Maybe that is a question you’d know the answer for. Even S3, the relatively quiet member of this family announced two different performance flavors of their Savage4, the regular and the Pro. I’m still looking for a Mystique ,i want to put it in my pmmx ‘replica’. This utility is useful especially for those who own older monitors that does not automatically store the user’s settings.

Drivers for older/legacy Matrox products

A Matrox “DualBus” chip consists of twin unidirectional buses internally, each moving data into or out of the chip. This is certainly a great feature that none has been able to match, so far.


My retro rigs old topic Interesting Vogons threads links to Vogonswiki Report spammers here! However, contrary to the video mode’s name, G does not support full DVD decoding hardware acceleration.

With regard to its hardware, G’s triangle setup engine, called the “Warp Engine” ironically, was somewhat slower than the counterparts aboard the competition’s cards. The package includes the following: This is actually a requirement in the CAD world, where exact depth precision is needed. I’m sure matroz of you would have been drooling by now, after getting a load of all the great features that’s packed into this little baby. Whats missing in your collections?

This results in rich image quality with smoother and accurate color reproductions. The OpenGL drivers are still not as matured as I’d like it to be, and there are certainly a lot more that could be done to improve the OpenGL performance. Typically, the drop in performance is less than 1 fps at lower resolutions, but at higher resolutions the drop ranges from about fps. Judging from the range of mouth-watering features, we can see this card is indeed packed with a lot of new features that will excite not only gamers, but also users who seek to increase work productivity.
