Anyway, let’s take a quick look at some 3DMark 99 Max benchmark scores. Notice the sharper image produced on the GMax, especially the 3D Mark logo near the top right corner of the image. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. The Installation, Driver features and Programs. In a worst case scenario, one would actually observe artifacts in a 3D rendered scene, such as a flickering shadow on an uneven floor. Internally the G is a bit processor, using what Matrox calls a “DualBus” architecture.

Matrox Millennium G400 DualHead

You have two options, either react to one of the squares of the picture that have already been revealed or hold your breath until the final piece falls into place. In the bit and bit comparison tests, I only used Q3Test 1. Dul name Release date and file size Driver Notes, including operating system and Matrox millennium g dualhead graphics card matrox millennium g dualhead Disk 1.

But for Matrox, I’m confident that they will come through with a set of good drivers eventually.

We can see that the GMax suffers little performance hit when moving from bit to bit rendering. By shrinking the core, costs are reduced because more chips are made per wafer at the factory, and Matrox can take the time to mkllenium earlier mistakes in the core, and trim or add new functionality. Other options are self explanatory. Imagine how much more saliva he would leave on my keyboard if he sees it being done on the G Max.

Matrox Millennium G400 & G400MAX

This means that it will only playback audio in stereo only, and with reduced audio volume. Your recently viewed items and featured recommendations. The OpenGL drivers are still not as matured as I’d like it to be, and there are certainly a lot more that could be done to improve the OpenGL performance. It added some new features to DualHead that worked with Internet Explorer to make pages show up on both screens at once. The DualHead display offers a wide range of possibilities, for both gamers and professionals alike.


Matrox Millennium G & GMAX

This is an evolution of G’s “DualBus”, which had been bit. 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.

Besides these features, the 0. Anyway, I wouldn’t take Wintune benchmarks as truth as it is not the most accurate benchmarking software around.

The same driver versions were used in the Quake II tests. In cases where “available with OS” is stated, the operating system will install a Matrox driver that will give you basic 2D and 3D functionality, where this driver is supported by Microsoft. The Matrox DeskNav is a little utility that you can call up to zoom into a particular section g4400 your desktop. The DualHead Clone option is perfect for presentations where the image on your display monitor is replicated on the other output which can be connected to a large projector.

Instead of rendering an entire scene, stencil-buffering determines the area which does not need rendering, thus, saving unnecessary rendering.

In fact, games have become so complex nowadays that leaving this feature out would reduce the rendered image quality. Video capturing was possible but drivers are still based on VfW.


There are no WDM drivers available for this card. To date, there are already a number of games that support milleium feature, and Matrox promises more titles to come. Boards shipped with dual analog VGA connectors. Bthat are fully 4X compliant and run at the higher speed if the motherboard is capable as well. No hiccups and no glitches. Texture Resolution Again, it is difficult to spot any noticeable difference.

Judging from the range of mouth-watering features, we can see this card is indeed packed with a lot of new features that will excite not only gamers, but also users who seek nillenium increase work productivity. The figures h400 will help explain the difference between Matrox’s bit DualBus and the traditional bit chip.

This meant that the primary monitor could run much higher resolutions and refresh rates than the secondary. I was hoping to run Quake II at higher resolutions of x, but somehow, the program reported an error, and I had to stop the test at x This year the trend seems to be division according to clock speed, instead of worrying about releasing a single product and hoping the competition can’t beat it in performance, why not release a variety of products, with each one offering a higher clock speed and theoretically faster performance.

The G Max performed well throughout all the different resolutions, with little drop in frame rates in various resolutions, unlike the TNT2-Ultra.
