In cases where “available with OS” is stated, the operating system will install a Matrox driver that will give you basic 2D and 3D functionality, where this driver is supported by Microsoft. Last totally failing titles are Populous: In fact, these two cards often trade blows which implies chip clock is compensating memory clock differences. First I should say this is again not exactly a gamers card. After some time Matrox attempted a comeback to the high performance market with Parhelia in summer

Data Processing Unit can now calculate vertex fog and bilinear interpolator was added to Texture Mapper. The last big question is then the blending and G will attack your eyes with worst implementation ever. AGP configuration is a bit perplexing.

This Hewlett-Packard card will be your guide in the amazing world of stipple alpha blending. In most cases games on G looks better than on Mystique, but there are situations when that horrible blending ruins it all. It offered more of geometry performance and color precision which is good for professional applications, however, games suffered from poor pixel fillrate.
Pictures cannot tell how it looks in games with intensive blending. Unfortunately G suffers from mip-mapping errors in more games, even those there it cannot be disabled. Matrox “HF” drivers have a rich interface that require Microsoft.
In afp where “available with OS” is stated, the operating system will install a Matrox driver that will give you basic 2D and 3D functionality, where this driver is supported by Microsoft. But the matro was not very well balanced for games.

All the specifications you can find around web say otherwise, but the numbers speak for themselves. Well, this is one of the ugliest filters I saw, but it still helps. Anyway, this should mean Matrox was second to the gaming market with multitexturing.
