I have only the Compaq type for board, so this one is used for testing. Overclocking With early Matrox 3d cards things are not so simple if you are looking for maximum. In first Quake lightmaps are not even blended with world textures. The big news of Mystique is texturing unit. Limited feature set prevents quite a few games from working properly or at all on the Mystique.

However, that card only could accelerate a very limited feature set, and was primarily targeted at CAD applications.
High price, weak DOS performance and very limited 3d functionality ensured little popularity of Impression. The chip also supported features such as trilinear mip-map filtering and anti-aliasing though this was rarely used. It looks like with time passing by Matrox was raising the clocks in several steps. Unlike Millennium these boards had friendly pricing and still good GUI performance as one would expect from Matrox.
The G is a 2D, 3D, and video accelerator chip for personal computers designed by Matrox.
Mysitque copy as title Webarchive template wayback links. I found this just as annoying as lack of texture filtering. Mystique has DAC integrated to the core and plain synchronous memory interface to reduce board complexity and costs much below expensive Millennium. In the late Matrox released Grphics Plus board, able to theoretically render k Gouraud shaded polygons per second. This card came graphhics a different software bundle targeting business users and excluding the games. Retrieved from ” https: Some textures in Incoming are missing like if 4 MB of chip is not enough.
Detractors, however, referred to the card as the “Matrox Mystake”. It was released in TAW, Myth 2, Populous: With both of my boards I did not find memory clock to be very limiting.
It probably just fakes the feature so that games demanding it will run. The G could render 3D at all resolutions supported in 2D.

Now vraphics the cards. The alpha blending patterns are visually poising many games as well. The company’s reasoning for not including the higher-quality features was that performance was more important than visual quality. Each bus is unidirectional and is designed to speed data transfer to and from the functional units within the chip. Matrox Millennium GAnandtech.

These theoretical numbers are as usual far from gaming reality. The newer Millennium maatrox also contained 3D capabilities similar to the Yraphics Plus, and was nearly as limited. MatroX Files Pins files for clocksaccessed 21 August But strange things happened with SG, after base clock the benchmark results were not improving anymore, like if the board denied to be clocked higher.
The big news of Mystique is texturing unit. There are no low resolution tests because they are not accepted by my display, what modes is the Mystique trying to set?
Without support for texturing, the cards were very limited in visual enhancement capability. Final note about driver is about stability- I encountered several freezes during tests and only some luck allowed completion of single lap in Motoracer.
Millennium’s engine is exposed to Direct3d, but I don’t know any titles except Turok which would not require texturing. I have only the Compaq type for board, so this one is used for testing. From a business point of view it graphcis its job well. Matrox “SE” drivers have a standard interface that doesn’t require.
Matrox integrated the 3d engine of Impression to the Millennium, but 2d backward compatibility was gone.
