The 3D acceleration appears to be identical with even the same bugs. This site uses cookies. Bundle Saver 1 Reviews. Subscribe to our Newsletter Sign Up. The goal was to prevent dithering and other artifacts caused by inadequate precision when performing calculations. Logitech Illuminated Keyboard 10 Reviews. Note that the final drivers for G include a OpenGL driver with a bug that breaks transparent water.

Matrox G400

This tab allows one to control the gamma settings of your display. Perhaps when it has reached the end of its useful life, I would probably try overclocking the card. As I said before the hardware EMBM feature of this card was supposed to be a big selling point as other cards on the market were not able to perform this ability.

It allows easy navigation and setup mateox your display with one click of a button. At this point, I was still not very satisfied and decided to run one last round of tests. Anyway, if you want to skip this, you can go directly to The Test section. It contains various features, such as full hardware alpha-blended sub-picture blending and real-time aspect ratio conversion.

With the 3D market hitting everyone, 3D accelerators are no longer viewed as “only for gamers” although gamers do seem to get much more of a benefit from a Voodoo3 than business users do.


Matrox G400 32MB

However, the boxed retail version for the GMax have only just arrived. However, we’re not just previewing the mini ICD today, but also taking this opportunity to revisit the G series gaming performance. Anyway, we shall all know in due time if my guess is right.

It typically comes with 8MB RAM and is capable of rendering at any resolution that can fit within that. Matrox only supports HeadCasting feature through the bundled Matrox Digimask software, which have never become popular.

Graphics Cards – Matrox – Matrox G 32MB – MGMB

This is what made having something like the G MAX in a collection interesting since it was the only means to fully experience some of these titles. Initial version of the GPU has some bugs with secondary displays and also shipped with a low clock speed because of manufacturing difficulties.

It is built on nm manufacturing instead of G’s nm and typically does not need a heatsink. You are commenting using your Facebook account. Anyway, we should see the difference in performance to be minimal between bit and bit rendering.

This is a letdown since the G support is superb for DVD, but the software limits its capabilities. This is actually a requirement in the CAD world, where exact depth precision is needed. Imagine for a moment, a picture in the dark, revealed to you by a focused light only one square at a time. G does have partial support for the DVD video decoding process but it does not perform inverse discrete cosine transform IDCT or motion compensation in hardware the two most demanding steps of the process.


Some product drivers that I know never even matured after the product was delivered into the market many many months h400.

This feature significantly improves the visual realism of 3D g4000 scenes. Click on the images to see the full view of the picture itself. MGA-G processor added a second pixel pipeline, hardware transform and lighting, and the HeadCasting Engine, a hardware implementation of a vertex shader for accelerated matrix palette skinning.

It does not support hardware texture mapping. Quake III Test v1. The DualHead feature is superb for all different individuals, from gamers to professionals and could very well make it as a personal home theatre solution too. However, if proper care was not taken, the color precision can be lost on each texture pass which would result in cumulative rounding errors and ugly dither patterns appearing in the image. Matrox made it very clear that they were committed to supporting OpenGL, however, and development rapidly progressed.

It is nowhere near nVidia’s Quick Tweak menu.
