These theoretical numbers are as usual far from gaming reality. Matrox Mystique Let me skip some of the long history of the company and start with the inception of MGA- 64 bit Matrox Graphics architecture. G’s OpenGL support was very poor until years into its life. Note that the final drivers for G include a OpenGL driver with a bug that breaks transparent water. In early the final OpenGL driver was ready. In came Titan chip with feature set expanded by basic 3d operations:

Besides the ramdac Mystique also integrates video engine with hardware scaler. It is over twice as fast as Millennium G They must be unzipped using mfa -D option.

The G bested the older Millennium II in almost every area except extremely high resolutions. Matrox G series, especially the Ge is still a popular choice for server motherboard manufacturers, like DELL’s PowerEdge series, due to its robustness, low power consumption and limited features needed just for VGA display.
In more generic terms the DPU is a bare pixel pipeline. Matrox Millennium G – Date: Mystique is powered by SG chip, evolving from Millennium’s W.

Retrieved from ” https: The cards also had ports for special add-on boards, such as the Rainbow Runnerwhich could add various functionality. The chip also supported features such as trilinear mip-map filtering and anti-aliasing though this was rarely used.
Matrox had been known for years as a significant player in the high-end 2D graphics accelerator market. Its intended audience was CAD users and others who desired high-performance, high-resolution GUI acceleration and was highly-priced accordingly.
Mystique’s image quality became quickly inadequate and perhaps from there comes the bad matrlx “Matrox Mistake”. Gouraud shading and Z-comparisons. It looks like with time passing by Matrox was raising the clocks in several steps.
With both of my boards I did not find memory clock to be very limiting. Older 3d chips of Matrox had separate unit for shading and depth interpolation, but in Mystique these are now part of the DPU. Matrox released their first Mystique on August 14, The company got into gamers mind despite price premium. These theoretical numbers are millennnium usual far from gaming reality.

This page was last edited on 7 Novemberat There is also a G chip which millnnium OEM-only. First decision is if to leave default 2: Last driver came out in September I have only the Compaq type for board, so this one is used for testing. This does not happen to old chip, so I may have come to some actual difference between the revisions.
Matrox’s first Direct3D 8 accelerator, although it was initially advertised has milleninum partial D3D9 capabilities. First MGA chip Atlas supported high resolution true color 2d accelerator for a new generation of operating systems with demanding graphical user interfaces.
It was blazing fast 2D card with crisp output for modern graphical interfaces like just fresh Windows Average framerate difference corresponds to clock difference, how about difference in Final Reality:. Overall mgq is closer to console like Playstation rather than other PC 3d graphics. Next chip in the line was Athena, powering the first Impression boards.
matrx In the beginning of the nineties the mission was to bring workstation class performance to a PC. If you are looking for the most recent drivers, please click here.
