Matrox G series, especially the Ge is still a popular choice for server motherboard manufacturers, like DELL’s PowerEdge series, due to its robustness, low power consumption and limited features needed just for VGA display. Matroox resolution support may be available, please call or contact pid matrox. Views Read Edit View history.
This hurt G’s performance dramatically in these games and caused a lot of controversy over continuing delays and promises from Matrox.
This driver supports TV Out and is 2D only. With the G, Matrox aimed to combine its past products’ competent 2D and video acceleration with a full-featured 3D accelerator. G supported full bit color depth rendering which substantially pushed the image quality upwards by eliminating dithering artifacts caused by the then-more-typical bit color depth. Please review the feature user agreement thoroughly before using this feature.
With regards to 2D, G was excellent in speed and delivered Matrox’s renowned analog signal quality. The QID Series and Extio F products support multi-display with up to 4 displays in stretched or independent mode with a wide variety of display resolutions including widescreen modes.
The chip also supported features such as trilinear mip-map filtering and anti-aliasing though this was rarely used. This driver enables 2D and 3D functionality only. MatroX Files Pins files for clocksaccessed 21 August NET Framework is required, even if version 2. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Early drivers had some problems with Direct3D as well.

The cards also had ports for special add-on boards, such as the Rainbow Runnerwhich could add various functionality. If you are looking for the most recent drivers, please click here.
This driver is 2D only and does not support TV Out. Addresses previous driver’s security issue with Microsoft’s dot net package. In Unrealfor example, there were problems with distortions on the ground textures caused by a bug with the board’s subpixel accuracy function.
G was Matrox’s first graphics processor to require added cooling in the form of a heatsink. G’s biggest problem was its OpenGL support. They must be unzipped using the -D option.
Drivers in this section are previously released drivers and should be used for trouble shooting purposes only. Matrox stepped forward in with their Impression Plus to 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.
AroundMatrox introduced a newer version of G, called GA.
