Its intended audience was CAD users and others who desired high-performance, high-resolution GUI acceleration and was highly-priced accordingly. The image is crisp, has fine colors. The G is a 2D, 3D, and video accelerator chip for personal computers designed by Matrox. The G bested the older Millennium II in almost every area except extremely high resolutions.

G’s OpenGL support was very poor until years into its life. The G was essentially an improved and matroz G Navigation Main page Recent changes Random page Help.


It was released in It features a unique anti-aliasing technique called fragment anti-aliasing that provides very high quality claimed 16X-equivalent MSAA. For more information, visit www. In early the final OpenGL driver was ready.


The chip also supported features such as trilinear mip-map filtering and anti-aliasing though this was rarely used. Initial version of the GPU has some bugs with secondary displays and also shipped with a low clock speed because of manufacturing difficulties. Retrieved from ” https: This hurt G’s performance dramatically in these games and caused a lot of controversy over continuing delays and promises from Matrox.

A later version increased clock speeds but also eliminated AGP 2x 3. There are also a number of OEM models with different specifications. Developed for 2D, 3D, and video acceleration, the G powered a number of industry-first, graphics and multi-monitor-based product lines that delivered unprecedented image quality across one or more displays.

The chip is a bit core containing dual bit buses in what Matrox calls a “DualBus” organization. Matrox G celebrates two decades of graphics excellence.

This was only used for the Headcasting software. It is over twice as fast as Millennium G Matrox products are listed down the left-hand side, and operating systems are listed along the top.


Drivers for older/legacy Matrox products

Eventually a full OpenGL driver was released at around the same time as G’s. The 3D acceleration appears to be identical with even the same bugs.

Fender Senior Member Posts: It is capable of bit rendering color depth although the performance hit is considerable. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. AlmondMan Senior Member Posts: Matrox “HF” drivers have a rich interface that require Microsoft.

That’s due to DX support. These chip is just way to old and Matrox has forgotten completely what innovation means. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.
