Computer-related introductions in Video cards. Mystique was their most feature-rich 3D accelerator in , but still lacked key features including bilinear filtering. G was Matrox’s first graphics processor to require added cooling in the form of a heatsink. In Unreal , for example, there were problems with distortions on the ground textures caused by a bug with the board’s subpixel accuracy function. With regards to 2D, G was excellent in speed and delivered Matrox’s renowned analog signal quality.

This hurt G’s performance dramatically in these games and caused a lot of controversy over continuing delays and promises from Matrox. Power Consumption 4 Watts.

G supported full bit color depth rendering which substantially pushed the image quality upwards by eliminating dithering artifacts caused by the then-more-typical bit color depth. Some drivers in this section are zipped using the -RP option. G was one of the first cards to support this feature [ citation needed ]. In Unrealfor example, matrxo were problems with distortions on the ground textures caused by a bug with the board’s subpixel accuracy function. However, it was not far behind and was certainly competitive.
Com, 10 August Please uninstall your previous drivers. G was Matrox’s first graphics katrox to require added cooling in the form of a heatsink. Matrox G series, especially the Ge is still a popular choice for server motherboard manufacturers, like DELL’s PowerEdge series, due to its robustness, low power consumption and limited features needed just for VGA display.
