By doubling the internal data path with two separate buses instead of just a wider single bus, Matrox reduced latencies in data transfer by improving overall bus efficiency. Perhaps the most notable feature of G is its ability to drive two separate monitors to display a single desktop.

As said earlier, G suffered at launch from driver problems. G was Matrox’s first fully AGP -compliant graphics processor. In Unrealfor example, there were problems with distortions on the ground textures caused by a bug with the millejnium subpixel accuracy function. Retrieved from ” https: The G is a video card made by Matroxreleased in September This page was last edited on 4 Januaryat Codenamed ” Toucan “, it was a more powerful and refined version of its predecessor, the G G’s OpenGL support was very poor until years into its life.

Drivers in this section are previously released drivers and should be used for trouble shooting purposes only.

But the 3D part lacked a lot of functions, which were removed to improve overall performance. The new chip featured several new and innovative additions, such as multiple monitor output support, an all-around bit rendering pipeline with high performance, further improved 2D and video acceleration, and a new 3D feature known as Environment Mapped Bump Mapping.


Internally the G is a bit processor, using what Matrox calls a “DualBus” architecture. G was Matrox’s first graphics processor to require added cooling in the form of a heatsink. Initially the card did not have an OpenGL driver. As for the 2D part, it’s safe to say the videocard has no known flaws.

A later version increased clock speeds but also eliminated AGP 2x 3.

Matrox P690 Plus LP PCI

This is an evolution of G’s “DualBus”, which had been bit. Findings within a release of Matrox graphics drivers MGA G was one of the first cards to support this feature [ citation needed ].

This page was last modified on 5 Aprilat Performance of this card is millennium above the G and G The cards also had ports for special add-on boards, such as the Rainbow Runnerwhich could add various functionality.

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 jillennium onto the second monitor.

They must be unzipped using the -D option. It is not Direct3D compatible.

This increases the efficiency and bandwidth of data flow within the chip to each of its functional units. Only a few games supported the feature, such as Dungeon Keeper 2 and Millennium Soldier: By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.


There are also a number of OEM models with different specifications. Matrox stepped forward in with their Impression Plus to innovate with one of the first 3D accelerator boards, but that card only could accelerate a very limited feature set no texture mappingand was primarily targeted at CAD applications.

Z-fighting may also be a problem and enabling bit z-buffer can help this. millemnium

Retrieved from ” https: The chip also supported features such as trilinear mip-map filtering and anti-aliasing though this was rarely used. This hurt G’s performance dramatically in these games and caused a lot of controversy over continuing delays and promises from Matrox. Performance is similar to a GeForce4 Ti. The situation was eerily similar to what had happened with the older G, millrnnium its near-total lack of credible OpenGL support.

Mystique was oriented on mid-end consummer and business market, offering excellent 2D performance, traditional for Matrox.
