Mystique was Matrox’s most feature-rich 3D accelerator inbut still lacked key features including bilinear filteringfoggingand anti-aliasing support.

The retail version of Mystique included 3 3D game titles, including: Later versions in the Matrox G series were never able to regain the crown, and despite huge claims for the Matrox Parheliatheir performance continued to be quickly outpaced by the major players.

Canadian brands Commercial computer vision systems Companies based in Montreal Electronics companies established in Dorval Electronics companies of Canada Graphics hardware companies Multinational companies headquartered in Canada Privately held companies of Canada S graphics cards establishments in Quebec. Driver support for the Mystique was robust at launch. Retrieved from ” https: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Retrieved from ” https: At the time, semiconductor fabrication processes and 3D hardware architecture design expertise was limited.

Unless otherwise indicated, HF drivers require version 1. One of the most milenium boards based on this logic was marketed as Matrox Millennium P Matrox Graphics is the primary consumer and end-user brand, while Matrox Video markets digital video editing solutions, and Matrox Imaging sells high-end video capture systems and “smart cameras”, video cameras with a built-in computer for machine vision applications.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Millennium 2 In summer Matrox released successor to the famous Millennium featured even higher 2d speeds, higher resolutions, crisper image output and for me most importantly a Direct3d compliant engine. Navigation Main page Recent changes Random page Help.

It was not uncommon to pair up the Mystique or another Matrox card with a 3Dfx Voodoo Graphics 3D-only board because the Voodoo cards were the fastest and most well-supported 3D accelerators at the time. I expected little matfox from more memory and AGP bus.

Including bilinear filtering would have incurred a significant cost in the chip’s transistor budget for more computational resources and potentially reduce graphics core clock speed and performance due to a larger chip design. The original Mystique was introduced inwith the slightly upgraded Mystique having been released in It is built on nm manufacturing instead of G’s nm and typically does not need a heatsink.

Matrox had been known for years as a significant player in the high-end 2D graphics accelerator market. The product had good 2D and 3D performance but produced poor 3D images with the result that it was derided in reviews, being compared unfavorably with the Voodoo1 and even being nicknamed the “Matrox Mystake”.

Dxdiag mlllenium you to enable AGP texturing, but the built-in test fails and in fact even some games crashes at the start. Unreal and Unreal Tournament may display an incorrect, overly bright image. Checkbox for acceleration of fogging still does nothing.


These mmillenium were tested and are allegedly supported for quite old distributions. There are also a number of OEM models with different specifications. Otherwise, the card was identical in feature-set to the original Mystique and offered almost identical performance. There is also a G chip which was OEM-only. The answer to these limitations, and Matrox’s first attempt at targeting the consumer gaming PC market, would be the Matrox Mystique.

In addition to the proprietary drivers millenjum by Matrox, the DRI community has provided drivers under the GPL license for many more of the devices. Matrox had to hold on a bit longer to cover gamers with G, but that advanced architecture is not vintage enough to be covered here.

Free and open-source device drivers: Matrox used fastest possible WRAM interface greatly increasing memory bandwidth. Matrox specifies Millennium II clock to 62,5 MHz, mine runs at 62,05 and some boards were even down to
