The goal was to prevent dithering and other artifacts caused by inadequate precision when performing calculations. The 3D capabilities of G were identical to G The chip had 3 pixel pipelines with 3 texture units each. Introducing the Millennium G Series – a dramatically different, high performance graphics experience.

A Matrox user going by name Adis hacked original drivers to make the card work under Windows The new chip featured several new and innovative additions, such as multiple monitor output support, an all-around bit rendering pipeline with high performance, further improved 2D and video acceleration, and a new 3D feature known as Environment Mapped Bump Mapping.

As the most powerful and innovative tools in your PC’s arsenal, the Millennium G Series will not only change the way you see graphics, but will revolutionize the way you use your computer.

However, contrary to the video mode’s name, G does not support full DVD decoding hardware acceleration. Matox MJPEG capturing can be unstable but software compression, using a good video codec, gives much better results anyway.

This driver was a precursor to a fully functional OpenGL ICD driver, a quick development to improve performance as fast as possible by offering an interim solution. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended.

It was also equipped with a hardware transform and lighting unit capable of processing 20—30 million triangles per second. You may also like. It added some new features to DualHead that worked with Internet M4a32dh to make pages show up on both screens at once. Armed with the industry’s fastest graphics chip, the Millennium G Series takes explosive acceleration two steps further by adding unprecedented image quality, along with the most versatile display options for all your 3D, 2D, and DVD applications.

Matrox tried to make stable drivers for several months but with no luck.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Unfortunately Matrox never described the functionality of this component in-depth so little is known about it.

Eventually a native OpenGL driver called “TurboGL” was released, but it was only designed to support several popular games of the time e. G does have partial support for the DVD video decoding process but it does not perform inverse discrete cosine transform IDCT or motion compensation in hardware the two most demanding steps of the process.

The G continually received official driver updates into Matrox’s award-winning Powerdesk display drivers and control panel integrated Dualhead in a very flexible and functional way that become world-renowned for its effectiveness.

This is an evolution of G’s “DualBus”, which had been bit. Unfortunately, because of the identical core clock and due to lower memory bandwidth, G was slower than G in games. There are no WDM drivers available for this card. No ratings or reviews yet. This meant that the primary monitor could run much higher resolutions and refresh rates than the secondary. Due to 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.


G’s rendering pipelined uses what Matrox called “Vibrant Color Quality 2” VCQ2a functionality in which all internal 3D calculations are done with bit precision. Even with initial driver difficulties, Matrox G was very competitive. The chip had 3 pixel pipelines with 3 texture units each.

A Matrox “DualBus” chip consists of twin unidirectional buses internally, each moving data into or out of the chip. All articles with dead external links Articles with dead external links from April Webarchive template wayback links.

Matrox was known for their quality analog display output on prior cards and the G is no exception. Only a few games supported the feature, such as Dungeon Keeper 2 and Millennium Soldier: This item doesn’t belong on this page.

About this product Product Information Introducing the Matro G Series – a dramatically different, high performance graphics experience. With regard to its hardware, G’s triangle setup engine, called the “Warp Engine” ironically, was somewhat slower than the counterparts aboard the competition’s cards.
