MATROX G400 VIDEO DRIVER
Overall Rating Out of a maximum of 5 Star. A Matrox “DualBus” chip consists of twin unidirectional buses internally, each moving data into or out of the chip. Handy tool if you need to magnify a certain area of your screen. Also, it should be interesting to see how the GMax can edge out the competition with bit rendering. The Information tab displays all the necessary information you need to know about the card from the size of the memory to the serial number of the video card. On , Matrox Graphics Inc. The G continually received official driver updates into

The bit architecture helps in increasing the performance of both 2D and 3D acceleration. What’s more, it is part of the DirectX 6 feature that enables any 3D hardware with this built-in feature to take full advantage of rendering scenes with a higher level of detail.
This page was last edited on 4 Januaryat Here, we see the actual behaviour of the G in real world application. This driver also supports the output of custom display resolutions and timings under the “PowerRes” feature.
This results in rich image quality with smoother and accurate color reproductions.
The QID series products supports multi-display with 4 displays in stretched mode only, with a maximum single 4g00 resolution of x Viveo addition, the card ivdeo support the AGP 4x architecture, although it is still compatible with the older AGP 2x standard. Imagine an older driver delivering better performance than the newer revision.
The best example for the use of stencil buffering is in flight simulator games, where the view of the cockpit is masked out since it does not need constant rendering, and only the scene outside the cockpit is rendered. The TNT2-Ultra driver version was the reference driver version 2. They must be unzipped using the -D option. Anyway, if you want to skip this, you can go directly to The Test section.

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. The result was the best quality bit and bit color modes available at the time. They are almost perfect. The figures below will help explain the difference between Matrox’s bit DualBus and the traditional bit chip.
On the other hand, if you compare the natrox at both and Mhz, the performance was almost on videl, and only a few framerates away from each other as compared to the TNT2 Ultra. Due to its average 3D performance, I would matrkx give it 4. Instead of rendering an entire scene, stencil-buffering determines the area which does not need rendering, thus, saving unnecessary g040.
The QID Series and Extio F products support multi-display with up to 4 displays in stretched or independent mode with a wide variety of display resolutions including widescreen modes. Addresses previous driver’s security issue with Microsoft’s dot net package. However, the Warp engine was programmable which theoretically enhanced flexibility of the chip.

matroox Those who want a kick-ass 3D card, I suggest that you wait for the next generation of video cards which will be released in the coming months.
This is a matrkx since the G support is superb for DVD, but the software limits its capabilities. In a worst case scenario, one would actually observe artifacts in a 3D rendered scene, such as a flickering shadow on an uneven floor.
Also, driver version 5.
Imagine playing a flight simulator where one screen displays your cockpit, and the other displays a map or the status of your plane. Also, it should be interesting to see how the GMax can edge out the competition with bit rendering.
It was also equipped with a hardware transform and lighting unit capable of processing 20—30 videi triangles per second. This is perhaps one of the most desirable feature ever placed into a single graphic card, dual display capabilities.
Even with initial driver difficulties, Matrox G was very competitive.
The Information tab displays all the necessary information you need to know about the card from the size of the memory to the serial number of the video card.
But for now, we shall test it in its intended form. By shrinking the core, costs are reduced because more chips are made ,atrox wafer at the factory, and Matrox can take the time to fix earlier mistakes in the core, and trim or add new functionality. I was hoping that the OpenGL ICD in the newer driver revision would be improved, but instead, its performance dropped as compared to the older 5.
