Surprise Since Matrox quickly remove any gaming bells from G just like with Millennium II criticism of 3d capabilities would be off the place. The big geeky question is what is the 3d engine exactly. I did that for my benchmark, as it decrease performance a bit and somewhat compensates for that low IQ. It offered more of geometry performance and color precision which is good for professional applications, however, games suffered from poor pixel fillrate. Epilogue So much about a chip that should have play games until release date arrived and Matrox turned on a dime.

G got all the attention. Alright, forget what Matrox said about powerful 3d accelerator and welcome to the domain of corporate computers. Continue to performance summary. Please enter 5 or 9 numbers for the ZIP Code.

Seller information davidoboladze16 Following chips were about making G more cost efficient. I have no idea. In fact, these two cards often trade blows which implies chip clock is compensating memory clock differences.

The big geeky question is what is the 3d engine exactly. The whole point of Productiva was to be good cheap office card and therefore 3d acceleration is even less desirable than with Millennium. G First I mtrox say this is again not exactly a gamers card.

Matrox still could not be bothered with OpenGL driver.

It is an evolution of Fast Texture Architecture, but what else could change? All the specifications you can find around web say otherwise, but the numbers speak for themselves. The shocker came next year when G with all the traditional matroz of Matrox showed framerates on par with hyped TNT2 and Voodoo3.

Please enter a number less than or equal to 1. At least with this card 32 bit depth becomes realistic possibility and allowed me to confirm mipmap selections of G are indeed problematic.

Data Processing Unit can now calculate vertex fog and bilinear interpolator was added to Texture Mapper.

Soon the prices dropped to dollars and G was presented as office card- and it was excelent at that. Shipping cost cannot be matrod. But if the real chip clock is higher, then integer dividers would get me nowhere near the other g100a-w. At least with this card 32 bit depth becomes realistic possibility and allowed me to confirm mipmap selections of G are indeed problematic. And it finally has a bilinear filter. This raised my expectations regarding gaming speed, but surprisingly it did not exceed tested 4 MB G unless memory capacity is of concern.

Also G can properly render fog of distance. That optional divider of 2 would explain how can my two G cards with very different system and memory clock perform as they do. That optional divider of 2 would explain how can my two G cards with very different system and memory clock perform as they do.

Matrox Productiva G review

Those checkboards are even more abusive and more frequent matrpx. Gaming experience Good news is that unlike Mystique and Millenium II this card displays textures in all games, only world texturing of Half Life and Thief resists. I am more inclined to believe that Matrox realized how silly it was g1100a-e come out with this stipple alpha g1000a-e in and decided to pretend they were not even trying to be good in 3d.

It is faster than Mystique even with extra features, but basic 3d rendering looks similar. Rain, shadows even environmental maps can be easily rendered by proper amount of ordered black pixels. NET Framework, even if version 2.
