G was one of the first cards to support this feature [ citation needed ]. Engineering high-quality products since , Matrox technology is trusted by professionals and partners worldwide. G was Matrox’s first graphics processor to require added cooling in the form of a heatsink. Unless otherwise indicated, HF drivers require version 1. Computer-related introductions in Video cards.

Matrox G200: Celebrating 20 Years of Graphics Excellence

Each bus is unidirectional and is designed to speed data transfer to and from the functional units within the chip. In cases where “available with OS” is stated, the operating system will install a Matrox driver that will give you marrox 2D and 3D functionality, where this driver is supported by Microsoft.

The chip is a bit core containing dual bit buses in what Matrox calls a “DualBus” organization. The P Pros were very fast for the day. It features a unique anti-aliasing technique called fragment anti-aliasing that provides very high quality claimed 16X-equivalent MSAA. Navigation menu Personal tools Log in Request account.

Matrox G Overview – CNET

NET Framework, even if version 2. The image is crisp, has fine colors.

Ahh the good ol days. The G could render 3D at all resolutions supported in 2D. Celebrating 20 Years of Graphics Excellence.


AlmondMan Senior Member Posts: Like the Impression, it is a rudimentary 3D accelerator with support for gouraud shading. It was released 2g00 Not the best Developed for 2D, 3D, and video acceleration, the G powered a marrox of industry-first, graphics and multi-monitor-based product lines that delivered unprecedented image quality across one or more displays.

By focusing on high-quality, Windows desktop acceleration, Matrox established the precedent for image quality on analog cathode ray tube CRT monitors with unrivaled visual acuity.

Matrox G graphics card – MGA G – 8 MB Overview – CNET

They want their chip back. Matrox “SE” drivers have a standard interface that doesn’t require. Matrox had been known for years as a significant g20 in the high-end 2D graphics accelerator market. Drivers for older operating systems Windows 95, Window 3. This board was one of the very few times that Matrox would outsource for their graphics processor, and was certainly a matrpx measure to hold out until the G project was ready to go.

Oh no, there’s been an error

It is capable of bit rendering color depth although the performance hit is considerable. Matrox Media Relations Tel: Celebrating 20 Years of Graphics Excellence Landmark anniversary recognizes continuous support, proven longevity, and unwavering commitment to providing world-class products Matrox G celebrates two decades of graphics excellence.

It is built on nm manufacturing instead of G’s nm and h200 does not need a heatsink. This became the benchmark behind a number of ground-breaking and award-winning innovations including: This allowed Matrox to build more graphics processors per wafer at the factory as well as to reduce heat output of the chip, and the GAs came without even a heatsink. I’m pretty sure Adreno is AMD tech.


It has somewhat improved 3D hardware compared to the Mystique and Millennium II, with bilinear filtering, but it still lacks critical features like full alpha blending. G matrlx full bit color depth rendering which substantially pushed the image quality upwards by eliminating dithering artifacts caused by the then-more-typical bit color depth. Previously Released Drivers for Older Matrox products Drivers in this section are previously released drivers and should be used for trouble shooting purposes only.

They were one of the top dogs when it came to GPUs back mxtrox the day along with 3dfx etc.
