Com, 10 August Unfortunately Matrox never described the functionality of this component in-depth so little is known about it. 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.

Boards shipped with dual analog VGA connectors. Matrox took the technology developed from the G project, refined it, and basically doubled it up to form the G processor. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

No ratings or reviews yet. This board was one of the very few times that Matrox would outsource for their graphics processor, and was certainly a stop-gap measure to hold out until the G project was ready to go.

Also includes hardware subpicture and scaling for maximum image quality and features 5 display modes including: Show More Show Less.

The cards also had ports for special add-on boards, such as the Matrpx Runnerwhich could add various functionality. G’s 3D engine consists of 2 parallel pixel pipelines with 1 texture unit each, providing single-pass dual-texturing capability. Mystique was their most feature-rich 3D accelerator inbut still lacked key features including bilinear filtering. Sold by andkrasno-0 New seller Contact seller.

Unlike traditional multi-monitor solutions that simply allow you to extend your applications across two monitors, DualHead Display offers a variety of unique display features and productivity-enhancing software mattrox to help you get the most out of your applications.

Bthat are fully 4X compliant and run at the higher speed if the motherboard is capable as well. Matrox made it very clear that they were committed to supporting OpenGL, however, and development rapidly progressed. 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.

Overclocking tests showed that the core was unable to achieve higher speeds than G even though it was manufactured on a newer process. By doubling the internal data path with two separate buses instead of just a wider single bus, Matorx reduced latencies in data transfer by improving overall bus efficiency. The lowest-priced item that has been used or worn previously.
