Like the Parhelia, these boards have no driver support for Windows 9x. The lower memory clock should be more than compensated by WRAM interface as long as serious resolution is used. But it is obvious competing semi-professional cards Permedia 2 and Revolution 3D offered much better 3d. Initial version of the GPU has some bugs with secondary displays and also shipped with a low clock speed because of manufacturing difficulties. Performance of this card is slightly above the G and G Cards had 4 MB of memory and could be expanded with modules of 4, 8 or even 12 MB memory.

One of the most common boards based on this logic was marketed as Matrox Millennium P Drivers in this section are previously released drivers and should be used for trouble shooting purposes only.
It has somewhat improved matrpx hardware compared to the Mystique and Millennium II, with bilinear filtering, but it still lacks critical features like full alpha blending. Initial version of the GPU has some bugs with secondary displays and also milkennium with a low clock speed because of manufacturing difficulties.
Matrox – Vogons Wiki
Again, such undisclosed variations aren’t very nice. Navigation menu Personal tools Log in Request account. Like the Impression, it is a rudimentary 3D accelerator with support for gouraud shading. There are also a number of OEM models with different specifications.

Like the Parhelia, these boards have no driver support for Windows 9x. There is also a G chip which was OEM-only. Retrieved from ” https: NET Framework, even if version 2.
Tweakers also don’t support memory timings so all that is left is good old clocking. However, apart from higher resolutions, upgrading memory did not make much difference. In fact, it brakes transparency in Forsaken.
Specular lighting is not being mixed with texture colors. Matrox specifies Millennium II clock to 62,5 MHz, mine runs at 62,05 and some boards were even down to Conclusion For a gamer Pcu 2 with price way higher then Mystique did not make sense.
But it is obvious competing semi-professional cards Permedia 2 and Revolution 3D offered much better miplennium. Matrox used fastest possible WRAM interface greatly increasing memory bandwidth.
In summer Matrox released successor to the famous Millennium featured even higher 2d speeds, higher resolutions, crisper image output and for me most importantly a Direct3d compliant engine. Its intended audience was CAD users and others who ij high-performance, high-resolution GUI acceleration and was highly-priced accordingly. Cards had 4 MB of memory and could be expanded with modules of 4, 8 or even 12 MB memory. They must be unzipped using the -D option. The G was essentially an improved and upgraded G Beta drivers are not supported by Matrox Graphics Technical Support.
Matrox Millennium II graphics card – MGA 2164W – 4 MB Series
It features a unique anti-aliasing technique called fragment anti-aliasing that provides very high quality claimed 16X-equivalent MSAA.
This was only used for the Headcasting software. A later version increased clock speeds but also eliminated AGP 2x 3. Note ,atrox the final drivers for G include a OpenGL driver with a bug that breaks transparent water.
Initially the card did not have an OpenGL driver. In early the final OpenGL driver was ready.
