NET Framework, even if version 2. The shocker came next year when G with all the traditional advantages of Matrox showed framerates on par with hyped TNT2 and Voodoo3.

In some countries this may not be legally possible; if so: In cases where “available with OS” is stated, the operating system will install a Productivx driver that will give you basic 2D and 3D functionality, where this driver is supported by Microsoft. Matrox “SE” drivers have a standard interface that doesn’t require.
Like so often with early 3d cards you better disable mip-mapping though, or you will face some random mip level switching. The following 2 pages uses this file: Following chips were about making G more cost efficient. They must be unzipped using the -D option.

Watching this puppy drawing mega texels per second back in the days when I believed it runs at 41 MHz filled my head with associations with Parhelia’s quad texturing.
Retrieved from ” matfox Don’t tell me they were scared of 3dfx’s patents. That is right, no steps between half transparent and opaque!

It offered more of geometry performance and color precision which is good for professional applications, however, games suffered from poor pixel fillrate.
