However, the Warp engine was programmable which theoretically enhanced flexibility of the chip. The G was supposed to be released in May with retail availability in June; it is now September and the G is finally here. This feature is known as “DualHead” and was a decisive edge for Matrox over the card’s competitors at the time. Even with initial driver difficulties, Matrox G was very competitive. Companies that we once anticipated graphics chipsets from have been more than just quiet over the past year. Guaranteed by Mon, Jan 7.

Memory Size see all. 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.

In spite of this, the G did boast very impressive image quality, both in 2D and 3D rendering situations. The goal was to prevent dithering and other artifacts caused by inadequate precision when performing calculations. The G continually received official driver updates into 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.


Hardware MJPEG capturing can be unstable but software compression, using a good video codec, gives much better results anyway. Easy-to-use Matrox PowerDesk driver interface.

While that claim is definitely one to be taken seriously, among all the 3D accelerated eye candy that was being shown off by companies like 3dfx, no one seemed to pay much attention to 2D anymore.

G’s 3D engine consists of 2 parallel pixel pipelines with 1 texture unit each, providing single-pass dual-texturing capability. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

When the GMAX did eventually hit the streets, there was a relative lack of interest, instead people were turning towards the higher performing 3dfx and NVIDIA solutions as well as their promises of even faster, more powerful products in the months to come. This page was last edited on 4 Januaryat However with only one flagship product, 3dfx is definitely in need of a lower cost VSA part Voodoo4 where are you?

Matrox Millennium G

A Matrox “DualBus” chip consists of twin unidirectional buses internally, each moving data into or out of the chip. Bthat are fully 4X compliant and run at the higher speed if the motherboard is capable as well.

The order cannot be combined or modified after checkout has been completed. However, contrary to the video mode’s name, G does not support full DVD decoding hardware acceleration. Appropriate For see all.


The DualHead capability not only offered desktop widening but also desktop cloning two screens showing the same thing and a special “DVDMAX” mode which outputs video overlays onto the second monitor. A Matrox user going by name Adis hacked original drivers to make the card work under Windows This meant that the primary monitor could run much higher resolutions and refresh rates than the secondary.

This increases the efficiency and bandwidth of data flow within the chip to each of its functional units. All Auction Buy It Now. This is an evolution of G’s “DualBus”, which had been bit.
