Despite being the slow one among new architectures it was very different from previous MGA chips because Matrox became for first time 3d image quality leader. It is hard for me to imagine how Matrox would not fix this old weakness and instead made it worse. Don’t tell me they were scared of 3dfx’s patents. This Hewlett-Packard card will be your guide in the amazing world of matrox mga ga-e alpha blending. Alright, forget what Matrox said about powerful 3d accelerator and welcome to the domain of corporate computers.

I have no idea. Soon the prices dropped to dollars and G was presented as office card- and it was excelent at g100x. After some time Matrox attempted a comeback to the high performance market with Parhelia in summer This item will ship to United Statesbut the seller has not specified shipping options.
G also support 24 bit color 3d rendering.
This is the oldest Matrox chip you can play Unreal with and it shows. That is unimaginable for 8ns chips, another reason to reject old dividers.

Matrox Productiva G review
In most cases games on G looks better than on Mystique, but there are situations when that horrible blending ruins it all.

I am saving screenshots at this position to compare texturing of the fence. With small 3d polygons faster chip wins, large polygon fills are more limited by memory bandwidth. And it finally has a bilinear filter. These are the times when vsync ga-e slow display makes me a sad panda. Epilogue So much about a chip that should have play games until release date arrived and Matrox turned on a dime. First I should say this is again not exactly a gamers card.
