The G thrashes your system, freezes, restarts the system or after restarting the PC, you’ll get a dialog box saying the display card is not configured well, when used only with a VIA-MVP3 motherboard auch as this AOpen board I’m using. One of the most common boards based on this logic was marketed as Matrox Millennium P Should we install the AGP drivers provided by the mainbaord manufacturers? As for the 2D part, it’s safe to say the videocard has no known flaws. It does have a hardware transform and lighting unit but it is not Direct3D 7 compliant.

The 3D acceleration appears to be identical with even the same bugs.
There were also some problems with mip-mapping causing flickering in textures. Should be released soon. The G is a 2D, 3D, and video accelerator chip for personal computers designed by Matrox.
Extremely useful for more professional milkennium. It does have a hardware transform and lighting unit but it is not Direct3D 7 compliant. In 3D the resolution can be as impressive: Now this is a major setback. However, there’s one small ‘error’.
Unreal and Millenhium Tournament may display an incorrect, overly bright image. 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.
Car decals are easy to decipher too. Mystique was oriented on mid-end consummer and business market, offering excellent 2D performance, traditional for Matrox. Although many reviews including this one compares the reviewed board with a Riva board most of the time, it is because the Riva has fast become a kind of standard.
Well I recommended people to stay away from using this G board with the MVP3 chipset because most of those boards have the problem that I stated.
There are also a number of OEM models with different specifications. Each bus is unidirectional and is designed to speed data transfer to and from the functional units within the chip. This card comes in the above-shown packaged box, which somewhat resembles the Millennium-2 box. It is capable of bit rendering color depth although millennijm performance hit is considerable. This board is 2X AFP board! If this is the case, you can upgrade the G to include hardware DVD or include the Rainbow-Runner-G series to gain TV and video capture cum editing facilities that are very good.

Driver installation is guided by the simple Matrox setup program. Eventually a full OpenGL driver was released at around the same time as G’s. However, there seems to be a problem on Final Fantasy 7. Installation is similar to most Video cards. Early drivers had some problems with Direct3D as well. Because of this problem, you would have some difficulty in getting the card to be installed properly before you can try this work-around.
This technique has some caveats though, such as incompatibility with stencil buffering, and so was not further developed. Initially the card did not have an OpenGL driver.
Matrox Millennium G200
If a bit bitmapped game is passed through the G’s bit rendering engine, the quality would be equal to other video cards. Matrox had been known for years as a significant player in the high-end 2D graphics accelerator market.
Matrox Millennium Millennijm – Date: On opening the box, you can see that the small video card is safely packaged in a huge transparent-moulded-plastic.
Overall, Matrox Mystique is a good choice for 2D graphics alongside 3dfx Voodoo. Here are the softwares that are given on the installation CD web-publishers would like it!
