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 mapping , and was primarily targeted at CAD applications. Mystique was their most feature-rich 3D accelerator in , but still lacked key features including bilinear filtering. 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.

The chip is a bit core containing dual bit buses in what Matrox calls a “DualBus” organization. Matrox G series, especially the Ge is matroxx a popular choice for server motherboard manufacturers, like DELL’s PowerEdge series, due to its robustness, low power consumption and limited features needed just for VGA display.

Early drivers had some problems with Direct3D as well.

The QID series products supports multi-display with 4 displays in stretched mode only, with a maximum single display resolution of x However, it was not far behind and was certainly competitive. Each bus is unidirectional and is designed to speed data transfer to and from the functional units within the chip.


As drivers matured these matrlx disappeared.

G’s biggest problem was its OpenGL support. In Unrealfor example, there were problems with distortions on the ground textures caused by a bug with the board’s subpixel accuracy function. Does not enable video features Release notes: The G is a 2D, 3D, and video accelerator chip g200ww personal computers designed by Matrox. 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.

G was one of the first cards to support this feature [ citation needed ]. This driver supports Quad TV-out. More resolution support may be available, please call or contact pid matrox.

Architecturally, the 3D pipeline was laid out as a single pixel pipeline with a single texture management unit. This page was last edited on 7 Novemberat This driver also supports the output of custom display resolutions and timings under the “PowerRes” mqtrox. This is an English-language driver only. The G could render 3D at all resolutions supported in 2D.

With the G, Matrox aimed to combine its past products’ competent 2D and video acceleration with a full-featured 3D accelerator. For more information, click here. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.


The chip also supported features such as trilinear mip-map filtering and anti-aliasing though this was rarely used. NET Framework is required, even if version 2.

The cards also had ports for special add-on boards, such as the Rainbow Runnerwhich could add various functionality. Please uninstall your previous drivers. Does not enable video features Release notes Source code: This board was one of the g200e few times that Matrox would outsource for their graphics processor, and was certainly a stop-gap measure to hold out until the G project was ready to go.
