Findings within a release of Matrox graphics drivers MGA Over the past five years alone, Matrox has been recognised with international awards for its innovation in graphics and video technology. An excellent feature for the visually challenged? You can have an opened spreadsheet on one display, and your favourite word processor on another. In addition, framerates also differed by only a few frames with different resolution settings, unlike the TNT2 Ultra.

Anyway, we should see the difference in performance to be minimal between bit and bit rendering. Thus, it is not surprising to see Matrox striving to deliver yet another high performance video card into the market with the introduction of the new Matrox Millenium GMax. It added some new features to DualHead that worked with Internet Explorer to make pages show up on both screens at once.

Anyway, we shall all know in due time if my guess is right. 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.

On the other hand, the TNT2-Ultra suffers a larger performance hit when moving from bit to bit rendering. However, the Warp engine was programmable which theoretically enhanced flexibility of the chip. On the other hand, you can also choose to use the second display adapter to do Multi-Display, thus enlarging your desktop area.


This card is an above average performer, giving the best in 2D video, the sharpest in TV-out quality, the richest in graphic quality and acceptable 3D video performance. However, on the Matrox G, even when mtrox display is set to render at bits, all internal rendering would still be performed with bit accuracy and the final image is actually dithered down to bit.

The goal was to prevent dithering and other artifacts caused dul inadequate precision when performing calculations. The package includes the following: The ratio conversion allow users to display The G is also capable of high-quality DVD playback at full resolution and frame rates. The images were captured at x in bit mode I know, I know, it’s not high resolution enough.

Matrox “SE” drivers have a standard interface that doesn’t require. Both of these images are produced with bit rendering. The Installation, Driver features and Programs. Handy tool if you need to magnify a certain area of your screen. Interesting Finds Updated Daily. If you configure this properly, you hardly need to readjust your monitor every time you execute a game that uses a different resolution.

I’m sure most of you have already seen some of the most breathtaking shots ever reproduced on a graphic card. The TNT2-Ultra driver version was the reference driver version 2. The 2D Video speed milelnium expected as Matrox is well known for its 2D video speed.


A Matrox “DualBus” chip consists of twin unidirectional buses internally, each moving data into or out of the chip. Imagine for a moment, a picture in the dark, revealed to you by a focused light only one square at a time.

Where many cards were crippled heas blurry output, especially as the resolution and refresh rate increased, the Matrox cards delivered very sharp and clear images. The G Max is not far behind and leads in the remaining tests. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. But before we do that, let’s check out the specifications, shall we?

The TNT2-Ultra is the champion at lower resolutions, but performed a little slower at high resolutions. There are several more settings available if you enable DualHead display. However, contrary to the video mode’s name, G does not support full DVD decoding hardware acceleration. They were the first to introduce a bit graphics engine for the PC market with its MGA series in Video capturing was possible but drivers are still based dua VfW.
