The whole point of Productiva was to be good cheap office card and therefore 3d acceleration is even less desirable than with Millennium. Devoted fans were waiting for the next big thing which would show GeForces and Radeons what Matrox can do, but waiting took too long. G got all the attention. Soon the prices dropped to dollars and G was presented as office card- and it was excelent at that. Pipeline depth is whole two steps: Retrieved from ” https: At least with this card 32 bit depth becomes realistic possibility and allowed me to confirm mipmap selections of G are indeed problematic.

This file contains additional information such as Exif metadata which may have been added by the digital camera, scanner, or software program used to create or digitize it. In fact, these two cards often trade blows which implies chip clock is compensating memory clock differences.
Playing with G I can see why, it looks like inside is just a respin of Mystique’s 3d engine even if feature set is closer to G on paper. Multitexturing speed aside, would Matrox develop another Fast Texture Architecture 3d core and release it just one month before much better 3d chip?
