By it’s very nature, a single animated head can’t convey the same range of emotion and information you get from watching a real person. We all know the G is a bit of an enigma, but is it really especially well suited for the business niche? Beta drivers are not supported by Matrox Graphics Technical Support. It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. Yep, there’s only one port at the back.

DualHead is also not a novelty any more. Steam names the best-selling games of Connecting two monitors through a Y-cable rather than directly to the video card had me a little worried about signal quality, but the cables Matrox g for both DVI and analog interfaces are nice and beefy.

Drivers in this section are previously released drivers and should be used for trouble shooting purposes only. It has constant registers to allow it to do a full 32 matrix skin of a 3D mesh in hardware. We all know the G is a bit of an enigma, but is it really especially well suited for matrx business niche?

This meant that the primary monitor could run much higher resolutions and refresh rates than the secondary. On a more serio There are no WDM drivers available for this card.

A bit bus reduces the board’s complexity and cost because fewer traces have to be used, and potentially the pin-count of the graphics processor can be significantly reduced if the chip is designed only for a bit bus. It appears to be just a cosmetic tweak away from the sky-blue Special Edition.


Think TripleHead2Go but much, much matrox g versatile. Matrox only supports HeadCasting feature through the bundled Matrox Digimask software, which have never become popular.

Drivers for older/legacy Matrox products

Drivers for older operating systems Windows 95, Window 3. For those lucky enough to have two digital monitors, the G will run them both.

The G comes with a Y-cable to plug into the back of the card to provide connectors for two DVI or analog monitors. The Gainward scored 3DMarks or nearly exactly 5 times the score of the Matrox.

Matrox’s G550 graphics card

They must be unzipped using the -D option. If we think back quickly to the HeadCasting engine, you’ll remember I mentioned the card did vertex shading and vertex manipulation in hardware. The Millenium G which I’m looking at today is aimed squarely at the business user. I didn’t experience any g5500 quality problems. Due mtarox 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.


Findings within a release of Matrox graphics drivers MGA Lets take a look at the formal specification. Mattox is known for it’s incredible 2D image quality on earlier products. The DualHead capability not only offered desktop widening but also desktop cloning two screens showing the same thing and a special “DVDMAX” mode which outputs video overlays onto the second monitor.


HeadCasting is a technology supported by the F500 processor that animates a fully 3D, skinned, talking head. Drivers in this section are zipped using the -RP option. It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. Voldenuit It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. It does Matrix Pallete Skinning part of the DX8 spec in hardware with up to 32 matrices and splits things up per vertex, per triangle or per draw, depending on what needs to be done.

While it would be nice if the card was a full DX8 part and managed to perform very well in 3D applications, that’s simply not the case. Matrox was known for their quality analog display output on prior cards and the G is no exception. However, the Warp engine was programmable which theoretically enhanced flexibility of the chip.

The 3D capabilities of G were identical to Mtarox
