Continue to performance summary. First I should say this is again not exactly a gamers card. But if the real chip clock is higher, then integer dividers would get me nowhere near the other board. This is the oldest Matrox chip you can play Unreal with and it shows. Parhelia appealed only to small niche and Matrox left this arena to concentrate on graphics technologies for other uses. The shocker came next year when G with all the traditional advantages of Matrox showed framerates on par with hyped TNT2 and Voodoo3.

Don’t tell me they were scared of 3dfx’s patents. Matrox still could not be bothered with OpenGL driver.
I have no idea. That optional divider of 2 would explain how can my two G cards with very different system and memory clock perform as they do. Grapphics checkboards are even more abusive and more frequent too. I found it difficult to believe such low chip clock inpersonally I would expect divider of 2.

It is an evolution of Fast Texture Architecture, but what else could change? View Matrox screenshot gallery Overclocking G have a huge potential, Matrox really put the chip clock unnecessarily low.

Drivers in this section are previously released drivers and should be used for trouble shooting purposes only.
It is hard for me to imagine how Matrox would not fix this old weakness and instead made it worse. Following chips were about making G more cost efficient. Drivers for older operating systems Windows 95, Window 3. The shocker came next year when G with all the traditional advantages of Matrox showed framerates on par with hyped TNT2 and Voodoo3.

I did that for my benchmark, as it decrease performance a bit and somewhat compensates for that low IQ. Like so often with early 3d cards you better disable mip-mapping though, or you will face some random mip level switching. Gaming experience Good news is that unlike Mystique and Millenium II this card displays textures in all games, only world texturing of Half Life and Thief resists.
But Matrox pulled this one out after press announcement claiming G is a powerful DirectX 6 accelerator and quickly drop such boasting later. These are the times when vsync on slow display makes me a sad panda.

Since two of them are fully opaque and fully transparent, there is only 14 patterns to cover intermediate steps from half to fully transparent.

First I should say this is again not exactly a gamers card. After some time Matrox attempted a comeback to the high performance market with Parhelia in summer Multitexturing speed aside, would Matrox develop another Fast Texture Architecture 3d core and release it just one month before much better 3d chip?
Other games tested do not support single pass multitexturing, which means there are still more matrpx enhancements in G compared to Mystique. But if the real chip clock is higher, then integer dividers would get me nowhere near the other board. If you are looking for the most recent graphlcs, please click here.
