These theoretical numbers are as usual far from gaming reality. With early Matrox 3d cards things are not so simple if you are looking for maximum. Unless otherwise indicated, HF drivers require version 1. In Unreal , for example, there were problems with distortions on the ground textures caused by a bug with the board’s subpixel accuracy function. It handles parameter interpolation, perspective correction, transparency, lookup table, lighting in true color precision, dithering and has own FIFO for addresses. Detractors, however, referred to the card as the “Matrox Mystake”.

Matrox had been known for years as a significant player in the high-end 2D graphics accelerator market. This card came with a different software bundle targeting business users and excluding the games.
Matrox Graphics – Support – Latest Matrox drivers for legacy products
mysstique The frequency reduction affected the maximum refresh rate the card could run at high resolutions, crippling the Mystique for users of displays running UXGA x, for example. In the beginning of the nineties the mission was to bring workstation class performance to a PC.
With the G, Matrox aimed to combine its past products’ competent 2D and video acceleration with a full-featured 3D accelerator. There was also the manufacturing cost consideration that comes with a larger processor size. In came Titan chip with feature grpahics expanded by basic 3d operations: Driver support for the Mystique was robust at launch.
Besides the ramdac Mystique also integrates video engine with hardware scaler. Average framerate difference corresponds to clock difference, how about difference in Final Reality:.
The newer Millennium card also contained 3D capabilities similar to the Impression Plus, and was nearly as limited. Lack of true fogging means that objects will just pop up from the clear rather then from a fog of mystuque.
Computer-related introductions in Video cards. Mystiques equipped with 4 MB mysyique upgradable to impressive 8 MB, but I doubt more memory would make much difference for this chip. Power Consumption 4 Watts. Archived from the original on It is not nice to keep customers in the dark around such matters.
Drivers for older/legacy Matrox products
Very few games took advantage of the 3D capabilities of Impression Plus, with the only known games being the three titles that were bundled with the card in its ‘3D Superpack’  CD bundle: But most of Direct3d games could use it, especially big low resolution textures like skies looks horrible unfiltered.
Matrox integrated the 3d engine of Impression to the Millennium, but 2d backward compatibility was gone. This page was last edited on 7 Novemberat It was based heavily on the Millennium but with various additions and some cost-cutting measures.
Unless otherwise indicated, HF drivers require version 1. Without support for texturing, the cards were very limited in visual enhancement capability. The retail version of Mystique included 3 3D game titles, including: With 4 millions 3d controllers sold inMatrox was standing strong with around a quarter of the market.
Detractors, however, referred to the card as the “Matrox Mystake”. No Mystique can display textures in Shogo and 3dmark Quake games look just as bad like d3d titles, for all the hardware limitations. The chip also supported features such as trilinear mip-map filtering and anti-aliasing though this was rarely used. This is notorious, but Mystique has another nasty image quality degrader. Some textures in Incoming are missing like if 4 MB of chip is not enough. Matrox stepped forward in with their Impression Plus graphjcs innovate with one of the first 3D accelerator boards, but that card only could accelerate a very limited feature set no texture mappingand was primarily targeted at CAD applications.
TAW, Myth 2, Populous: In Next Generation called Millenium “the definitive 2D accelerator. The G bested the older Millennium II in almost every area except extremely high resolutions.
