Last stop is much less known G, which looks similar to Mystique and Millennium II, but actually hides quite a few changes. Performance is similar to a GeForce4 Ti. Mystique reloaded With same shortfalls as Mystique it is awfully outdated 3d accelerator. Checkbox for acceleration of fogging still does nothing. Matrox “HF” drivers have a rich interface that require Microsoft.

G’s OpenGL support was very poor until years into its life.
Memory bus width remains 64 bit. Final stages of the pipeline are just as minimalistic. Milenium better to keep it off, it is likely just a driver hoax. It is capable of bit rendering color depth although the performance hit is considerable.

Performance is similar to a GeForce4 Ti. Again, such undisclosed variations aren’t very nice. Z-fighting may also be a problem and milenium bit z-buffer can help this.
There are exception though- Millennium II supports 3d rendering in 32 bit colors and 32 bit Z-buffer. Unless otherwise indicated, HF drivers require version 1. Performance of this card is slightly above the G and G None of vertex fog, texture mip mapping, and dithering is supported.
Drivers in this section are zipped using the -RP option. Views Read View source View history. There are some good points for Millennium II. Also AGP cards were produced in high numbers and that is what I am going to test with 8 megabytes of video memory. Navigation Main page Recent changes Random page Help. Newer versions, including Mystiquekept appearing until summer Cards had 4 MB of memory and could be expanded with modules of 4, 8 or even 12 MB memory.
There were a few games included with the card that interfaced with it. With larger framebuffer 32 bit colors are possible, but performance hit remains steep.
Drivers for older/legacy Matrox products
Conclusion For a gamer Millennium 2 with price way higher then Mystique did not make sense. It does not support hardware texture mapping.
The 3D acceleration appears to be identical with even the same bugs. There is also a G chip which was OEM-only. Matrox released their first Mystique on August 14, In absolute numbers the Mystique would be leading, but in relative numbers cards score the same because Millennium puts its 8 MB of memory pxi use in advanced games.
This was only used for the Headcasting software. Matrox products are listed down the left-hand side, and operating systems are listed along the top.

In fact, it brakes transparency in Forsaken. In early the final OpenGL driver was ready.
The lower memory clock should be more than compensated by WRAM interface as long as serious resolution is used. In summer Matrox released successor to the famous Millennium featured even higher 2d speeds, higher resolutions, crisper image output and for me most importantly a Direct3d compliant engine.
