Windows 98 Second Edition Build 4. Like the Parhelia, these boards have no driver support for Windows 9x. Those who want a kick-ass 3D card, I suggest that you wait for the next generation of video cards which will be released in the coming months.

Drivers for older/legacy Matrox products

One wonders if the VCQ2 engine could be turned off to maximise the V400 for speed. The 3D acceleration appears to be identical with even the same bugs.

Unfortunately Matrox never described the functionality of this component in-depth so little is known about it. 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. However, at lower resolutions, the TNT2-Ultra is still the better choice.

Oh yes, before I forget, you can still set your Windows refresh rate on your primary monitor to Hz while you output your screen image to the TV.

Anyway, if you want to skip this, you can go directly to The Test section. I was hoping to run Quake II at higher resolutions gap x, but somehow, the program reported an error, and I had to stop the test at x Hopefully, Matrox will send an update to enable better audio support.


Matrox MGA G400 (G4+M4A16DG) 16MB SGRAM AGP 4x/8x Graphics adapter

An excellent feature for the visually challenged? Some product drivers that I know never even matured after the product was delivered into the market many many matrlx ago.

It is nowhere near nVidia’s Quick Tweak menu. However, it really depends on the quality of your TV, and with most TVs, the resolution is pathetic, and there’s only this much you can do with the hardware. Matrox “SE” drivers have a standard interface that doesn’t require. Boards shipped with dual analog VGA connectors. I did not 4g00 any overclocking on the card as I felt that it is too precious and expensive to fry the card.

The image is less crisp as compared to the GMax. In addition, the card also support the AGP 4x architecture, although it is still compatible with the older AGP 2x standard. The best example for the use of stencil buffering is in g00 simulator katrox, where the view of the cockpit is masked out since it does not need constant rendering, and only the scene outside the cockpit is rendered. Anyway, we shall all know in due time if my guess is right.


There are also a number of OEM models with different specifications. Show me what it can do!

There is nothing really bad about the mstrox except that it did not deliver the performance that all gamers wanted. Eventually a full OpenGL driver was released at around the same time as G’s.

Matrox G / G Max

Overall Rating Out of a maximum of 5 Star. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. It fairs well in period 3D-applications and games, although it will be slower mattox GeForce4 Ti most of the time. The Latest On Tom’s Hardware. It is purely a Direct3D 6. At the time when the G was tested the driver version was 5.

Perhaps when it has reached the end of its useful life, I would probably try overclocking the card. Even with initial driver difficulties, Matrox G was very competitive. Also note the jagged patterns in the TNT2 rendered image. However, contrary to the video mode’s name, G does not support full DVD decoding hardware acceleration.
