Be the first to write a review. Matrox made it very clear that they were committed to supporting OpenGL, however, and development rapidly progressed. Internally the G is a bit processor, using what Matrox calls a “DualBus” architecture. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Unfortunately, because of the identical core clock and due to lower memory bandwidth, G was slower than G in games.

G does have partial support for the DVD video decoding process but it does not perform inverse mg cosine transform IDCT or motion compensation in hardware the two most demanding steps of the process.

It is purely a Direct3D 6. Trending Price New. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended.

A Matrox “DualBus” chip consists of twin unidirectional buses internally, each moving data into or out of the chip. OnMatrox Graphics Inc. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. The 3D capabilities of G were identical to G The new chip featured several new and innovative additions, such as multiple monitor output support, an all-around bit rendering pipeline with high performance, further improved 2D and video acceleration, and a new mta feature known as Environment Mapped Bump Mapping.

See details for description of any imperfections. It added some new features to DualHead that worked with Internet Explorer to make pages show up on both screens at once.

The G is a video card made by Matroxreleased in September Internally the G is a bit processor, using what Matrox calls a “DualBus” architecture. This meant that the primary monitor could run much higher resolutions and refresh rates than the secondary. The result was the best quality bit and bit color modes available at the time.

This feature is known as “DualHead” and was a decisive edge for Matrox over the card’s competitors at the time. G was known for being particularly dependent on the host system’s CPU ma high 3D performance. Sold by andkrasno-0 New seller Contact seller.

Video capturing was possible but drivers are still based on VfW. Be the first to write a review. This page was last edited on 4 Januaryat Skip to main content.

Due to this lack of industry-wide support, and its toll on the limited graphics hardware of the time, EMBM only saw limited use during G’s time. Overclocking tests showed that the core was unable to achieve higher speeds than G even though it was manufactured mgq a newer process.


The G continually received official driver updates into By shrinking the core, costs are reduced because more chips are made per wafer at the factory, and Matrox can take the time to fix earlier mistakes in the core, and mg or add new functionality. G’s rendering pipelined uses what Matrox called “Vibrant Color Quality 2” VCQ2a functionality in which all internal 3D nga are done with bit precision.

It does this by improving on the 96 constant registers specified for by DirectX 8. This item may be a floor model or store return that has been used. Y400 with the industry’s fastest graphics chip, the Millennium G Series takes explosive acceleration two steps further by adding unprecedented image quality, along with the most versatile display options for all your 3D, 2D, and DVD applications.

As said earlier, G suffered at launch from driver problems.
