In a worst case scenario, one would actually observe artifacts in a 3D rendered scene, such as a flickering shadow on an uneven floor. Anyway, we should see the difference in performance to be minimal between bit and bit rendering. This is actually composed of two independent unidirectional bit buses that runs parallel inside the chip. The figures below will help explain the difference between Matrox’s bit DualBus and the traditional bit chip. By shrinking the core, costs are reduced because more chips are made per wafer at the factory, and Matrox can take the time to fix earlier mistakes in the core, and trim or add new functionality. Notice the sharper image produced on the GMax, especially the 3D Mark logo near the top right corner of the image.

A later version increased clock speeds but also eliminated AGP 2x 3. Also, it should be interesting to see how the GMax can edge out the competition with bit rendering. Keep in mind that many of the other early EMBM capable games may also require a Matrox card and have not been patched to use other brand cards so it still may be worth keeping a G MAX handy depending on what you want to play.

A bit bus reduces the board’s complexity and cost because fewer traces have to be used, and potentially the pin-count of the graphics processor can be significantly reduced if the chip is designed only for a bit bus. This is certainly strange considering newer driver revisions should contain improvements.

Also note the jagged patterns in the TNT2 rendered image. Comparing the scores of the G cards using the Pentium II, we can see that the Max version performed only slightly better than the non-Max version. Again, the TNT2 Ultra triumphed in almost every category. I did not try any overclocking on the card as I felt that it is too precious and expensive to fry the card.

It added some new features to DualHead that worked with Internet Explorer to make pages show up on both screens matgox once. In fact, games have become so complex nowadays that leaving this feature out would reduce the rendered image quality.

The system I put together for this game almost deserves an article of its own. Note that the final drivers for G include a OpenGL driver with a bug that breaks transparent water.

As the most powerful and innovative tools in your PC’s arsenal, the Millennium G Series will not only change the way you see graphics, but will revolutionize the way you use your computer.

Matrox made it very clear that they f400 committed to supporting OpenGL, however, and development rapidly progressed.

Ok, ok, I know some of you are getting overloaded already, but just bear with this for another second. Unless otherwise indicated, HF drivers require version 1.

Anyway, you should not need worry as the driver is smart enough to output the video playback in full screen to your TV. Numerous tabs on the display properties window is available for you to configure each option. 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.

This is a nice option for parents who want to restrict their children from watching movies with adult content.

I had to format it that way in order to squeeze all the numbers into the table. I’m not sure if it could be done, but mstrox it, perhaps Matrox should consider placing that option in their next driver revision? A Matrox “DualBus” chip consists of twin unidirectional buses internally, each moving data into or out of the chip.

Views Read Edit View history. 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 DualHead display offers a wide range of possibilities, for both gamers and professionals alike. Performance is similar to a GeForce4 Ti.

I was hoping to run Quake II at higher resolutions of x, but natrox, the program reported an error, and I had to stop the test at x Only a few games supported the feature, such as Dungeon Keeper 2 and Millennium Soldier:
