The product had good 2D and 3D performance but produced poor 3D images with the result that it was derided in reviews, being compared unfavorably with the Voodoo1 and even being nicknamed the “Matrox Mystake”.
Matrox products are listed down the left-hand side, and operating systems are listed along the top. In most cases games on G looks better than on Mystique, but there are situations when that horrible blending ruins it all.

The Matrox Mystiquereleased inwas the mqtrox first attempt to make a card with good gaming performance and with pricing suitable for that market. Alright, forget what Matrox said about powerful 3d accelerator and welcome to the domain of corporate computers.

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. I have no idea. Not to be confused with Maxtor.
The shocker came next year when G with all the traditional advantages of Matrox showed framerates on par with hyped TNT2 and Voodoo3. Beta drivers are not supported by Matrox Graphics Technical Support. Other games tested do not support matorx pass multitexturing, which means there are still more performance enhancements in G compared to Mystique. Baseline per polygon mip-mapping is implemented as well.
They must be unzipped using the -D option. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. It offered more of geometry performance and color precision which is good for professional applications, however, games suffered from poor pixel fillrate.

This raised my expectations regarding gaming speed, but surprisingly it did not exceed tested 4 MB G unless memory capacity is of concern. Good news is that unlike Mystique and Millenium II this card displays textures in all games, only world texturing of Half Life and Thief resists.
Soon the prices dropped to dollars and G was presented as office card- and it was excelent at that. It is hard for me to imagine how Matrox would not fix this old weakness and instead made it worse. Unfortunately G suffers from mip-mapping errors in more games, even those there it g10 be disabled. But if the real chip clock is higher, then integer dividers would get me nowhere near the other board.
Later versions in the Matrox G series were never able to regain the matox, and despite huge claims for the Matrox Parheliatheir performance continued to be quickly outpaced by the major players.

These are the times when vsync on slow display makes me a sad panda. In the office I could very well be happy with such a mgaa.

Devoted fans were waiting for the next big thing which would show GeForces and Radeons what Matrox can do, but waiting took too long. I found out one big thing, G supports multitexturing. The big geeky question is what is the 3d engine exactly.
