In order to preserve the color accuracy, the VCQ2 rendering engine actually uses a bpp color throughout the rendering pipeline to produce smoother color gradients. Also, driver version 5. The chip had 3 pixel pipelines with 3 texture units each. The TNT2-Ultra driver version was the reference driver version 2. It also displays all the software version numbers.

On the other hand, the TNT2-Ultra suffers a larger performance hit when moving from bit to bit rendering. This is because jead chip could get pretty hot as it is required to handle the second display at higher refresh rates than other similar chips used in other cards.

This means that it will only playback audio in stereo only, and with reduced audio volume. Thus, if you have DVDs from different regions, you might find this a big problem. Submit your views to this review here. View matrox millennium g dualhead edit your browsing history.

But for Matrox, I’m confident that they will come through with a set of good drivers eventually. Index Two Smiling Faces: Hardware MJPEG capturing can be unstable but software y400, using a good video codec, gives much better results anyway. Let’s enter the G, AnandTech-style. On the other hand, if you compare the framerates at both and Mhz, the performance was almost on par, and only a few framerates away dial each other as compared to the TNT2 Ultra. Previously Released Drivers for Older Matrox products Drivers in this section are previously released drivers and should be used for trouble shooting purposes only.


Let’s see if the GMax really lives up to its hype. It contains various features, such as full hardware alpha-blended sub-picture blending and real-time aspect ratio conversion. While NVIDIA was stealing the spotlight from 3dfx’s mammoth marketing campaign, S3 made a quiet release of the Savage4, a somewhat shortcoming successor to the original flop, the Savage3D.

However, if you prefer not to watch a compressed version of the Starship Enterprise, you can always choose to preserve the There are no WDM drivers available for this card. Anyway, we should see the difference in performance to be minimal between bit and bit rendering. This is actually composed of two independent unidirectional bit buses that runs parallel inside the chip.

With every review of the aforementioned video chipsets, AnandTech concluded by essentially offering a third option, wait until the next competitor is to be released.

The situation was eerily similar to what millenkum happened with the older G, with its near-total lack of credible OpenGL support. The Options tab allows you to enable certain performance options, such as polygon acceleration, device bitmaps caching, bus mastering and bit Z-buffering. Thus, do not expect any support for 4 speakers or more.


Let’s take a look at how these three cards perform in Quake II. Beta drivers are not supported by Matrox Hdad Technical Support. Just count how many bold coloured numbers you see for each card, and you will know what I mean.

We finally made it to the benchmarks. In addition, framerates also differed by only a few frames with different resolution settings, unlike the TNT2 Ultra. Unfortunately, I was not able to capture any screen shots of the movies that I tested. This is another plus to gaming enjoyment as opposed to increased frame rates. But milleniim at it this way, if you could see differences here, guess how much more you would see at ehad resolutions?

Stencil buffering actually represents a mask or stencil hence the name? Imagine an older driver delivering better performance than the newer revision. If you configure dul properly, you hardly need to readjust your monitor every time you execute a game that uses a different resolution.

This is actually a requirement in the CAD world, where exact depth precision is needed.
