I did not try any overclocking on the card as I felt that it is too precious and expensive to fry the card. On the other hand, the TNT2-Ultra suffers a larger performance hit when moving from bit to bit rendering. Well, here are some nice pics although not the best that I’ve captured to add to what you’ve already seen in other reviews. Other options are self explanatory. This is actually composed of two independent unidirectional bit buses that runs parallel inside the chip. Anyway, we should see the difference in performance to be minimal between bit and bit rendering.

This is certainly strange considering newer driver revisions should contain improvements. The DualHead feature of the card allows the user maatrox use two different monitors for increased productivity and entertainment. It is purely a Direct3D 6. I did not try all software DVD players to see if it katrox, but if it is able to output my Southpark episodes full screen on the TV using Windows Media Player, I don’t see why other softwares cannot do the same.

Besides these features, the 0. However, the G DualHead display technology eliminates the need to change your primary display refresh rate and yet it is able to output flicker free high resolution images to the TV, thanks to the Mstrox video encoder chip.
I was hoping that the OpenGL ICD in the newer driver revision would be improved, but instead, its performance dropped as compared to the older 5. At this point, I vdeo still not very satisfied and decided to run one last round of tests. The G is a video card made by Matroxreleased in September Please review the feature user agreement thoroughly before using this feature.
Matrox G – Wikipedia
This driver was a precursor to a fully functional OpenGL ICD driver, a quick development to improve performance as fast as possible by offering an interim solution. As you can see, the possiblities are endless!
Comparing the scores of the G cards using the Pentium II, we can see that the Max version performed only slightly better than the matdox version. On the other hand, the Matrox Diagnostic is a small utility to check if your system is ready to use the G NET Framework is required.

Since the VCQ2 rendering engine actually renders scenes in bit mode and then dithered down to bit if you are using bit display modeI suspect the GMax should perform well in bit as compared to the bit mode.
The G is also capable of high-quality DVD playback at full resolution and frame rates. First of all, the installation of the drivers was fairly simple and straightforward.
