This allowed Matrox to build more graphics processors per wafer at the factory as well as to reduce heat output of the chip, and the GAs came without even a heatsink. Retrieved from ” https: The result was the best quality bit and bit color modes available at the time. This page was last edited on 4 January , at It added some new features to DualHead that worked with Internet Explorer to make pages show up on both screens at once. Hardware MJPEG capturing can be unstable but software compression, using a good video codec, gives much better results anyway.

Use dmy dates from January All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from December G was Matrox’s first graphics processor to require added cooling in the form of a heatsink.

The chip is a mmatrox core containing dual bit buses in what Matrox calls a “DualBus” organization. Retrieved from ” https: Views Read Edit View history.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This hurt G’s performance dramatically in these games and caused a lot of controversy over continuing delays and promises from Matrox.

This page was last edited on 4 Januarymatrlx Findings within a release of Matrox graphics drivers MGA This increases the efficiency and bandwidth of data flow within the chip to each of its functional units. Only a few games supported the feature, such as Dungeon Keeper 2 and Millennium Soldier: The situation was eerily similar to what had happened with the older G, with its near-total lack of credible OpenGL support. OnMatrox Graphics Inc.


This page was last edited on 7 Novemberat Matrox tried to make stable drivers for several months but with no luck. It was released in This is an evolution of G’s “DualBus”, which had been bit.

Its low-profile form factor makes it easy to integrate into a wide variety of systems. Retrieved from ” https: Matrox had been gmi for years as a significant player in the high-end 2D graphics accelerator market. The G is a 2D, 3D, and video accelerator chip for personal computers designed by Matrox.

Unfortunately Matrox never described the functionality of this component in-depth so little is known about it. 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 ngi the second monitor.

The 3D capabilities of G were identical to G Matrox was known for their quality analog display output on prior cards and the G is no exception. In Unrealfor example, there were problems with distortions on the ground textures caused by a bug with the board’s subpixel accuracy function.

Matrox stepped forward in with their Impression Plus to innovate with one of the first 3D accelerator boards, but that card only could accelerate a very limited feature set no texture mappingand was primarily targeted at CAD applications. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

By shrinking the core, costs are reduced because more chips are made per wafer at the factory, and Matrox can take the time to fix earlier mistakes in the core, and trim or add new functionality. This was attributed both to its architecture and to the poor drivers it relied on for much of its life especially OpenGL ICD.

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.

Matrox made it very clear that they were committed to supporting OpenGL, however, and development rapidly progressed.
