Handy tool if you need to magnify a certain area of your screen. More resolution support may be available, please call or contact pid matrox. 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. As said earlier, G suffered at launch from driver problems. Matrox made it very clear that they were committed to supporting OpenGL, however, and development rapidly progressed. Thus, it is not surprising to see Matrox striving to deliver yet another high performance video card into the market with the introduction of the new Matrox Millenium GMax. Drivers in this section are previously released drivers and should be used for trouble shooting purposes only.

However, if you prefer not to matfox a compressed version of the Starship Enterprise, you can always choose to preserve the Numerous tabs on the display properties window is available for you to configure each option.
However, the boxed retail version for the GMax have only just arrived. First of all, the installation of the drivers was fairly simple and straightforward.
On the other hand, the DualHead Zoom option actually uses the second display to zoom into any area that you have selected to magnify in matroxx primary display.
There’s also a slider to adjust the color temperature. This is an evolution of G’s “DualBus”, which had been bit. Overall Rating Out of a maximum of 5 Star.

This is not surprising as we saw from earlier tests that the G Max is really better at higher resolutions. But for Matrox, I’m matroc that they will come through with a set of good drivers eventually. I did not try any overclocking on the card as I felt that it is too precious and expensive to fry the card.

Driver and Software Download
Please review the feature user agreement thoroughly before using this feature. Anyway, I wouldn’t take Wintune benchmarks as truth as it is not the most accurate benchmarking software around.
The package includes vvideo following: Also, driver version 5. A little disappointing for tweakers I must say. This version doesn’t support TV output. The difference is most notable on bit rendering where most video cards would fail to render accurate color reproductions. In addition, the card also support the AGP 4x architecture, although it is still compatible with the older AGP 2x standard.
This card is an above average performer, giving the best in 2D video, the sharpest in TV-out quality, the richest in graphic quality and acceptable 3D video performance.
Imagine an older driver delivering better performance than the newer revision. Thus, it is not surprising to see Matrox striving to deliver yet another high performance video card into the market with the introduction of the matrix Matrox Millenium Y400.
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. G was known for being particularly dependent on the host system’s CPU for high 3D performance. The Matrox TV decoder chip is also attached with a smaller piece of heatsink. However, it really depends on the quality of your TV, and with most TVs, the resolution is pathetic, and there’s only this much you can do with the hardware.

This increases the efficiency and bandwidth of data flow within the chip to each of its functional units. However, contrary to the video mode’s name, G does not support full DVD decoding hardware acceleration.
This was attributed both to its architecture and to the poor drivers it relied on for much of its life especially OpenGL ICD.
Previously Released Drivers
Internally the G is a bit processor, using what Matrox calls a “DualBus” architecture. This driver also supports the output of custom display resolutions and timings under the “PowerRes” feature. This means that it will only playback audio in stereo only, and with reduced audio volume.
At the time when the G was tested the driver version matrx 5.
