This feature is known as “DualHead” and was a decisive edge for Matrox over the card’s competitors at the time. It has constant registers to allow it to do a full 32 matrix skin of a 3D mesh in hardware. A bit bus reduces the board’s complexity and cost because fewer traces have to be used, and potentially the pin-count of the graphics processor can be significantly reduced if the chip is designed only for a bit bus. It does Matrix Pallete Skinning part of the DX8 spec in hardware with up to 32 matrices and splits things up per vertex, per triangle or per draw, depending on what needs to be done. Only a few games supported the feature, such as Dungeon Keeper 2 and Millennium Soldier:

I recently reviewed the Gainward GeForce3 Ti on the same base platform, all that has changed is the graphics card. The head is animated according to narrated audio. Chip Specification and Technology We’ll take a formal look at the specification shortly. OnMatrox Graphics Inc. Mtrox maybe the wrong person to convey the benefits of HeadCasting and Hexus’ primary focus isn’t this type of card.
The G’s low-profile design should fit easily into even the most crowded cases. There seems to be a problem serving the request at this time. Performance even at x is unacceptable for comfortable gameplay and a lower resolution would benefit the card a lot more. G’s rendering pipelined uses what Matrox called “Vibrant Color Quality 2” VCQ2a functionality in which all internal 3D calculations are done with bit precision. Matrox G Filter Applied.

Item Location see all. This driver was a precursor to a fully functional OpenGL ICD driver, a quick development to improve performance as fast as possible by offering an interim solution. Hardware MJPEG matfox can be unstable but software compression, using a good video codec, gives much better results anyway.
Video conferencing works fine and you get a more human interaction. In the G incarnation, the DualHead technology is taken to the next step. Instead, they have tailored their newest solution to a different market altogether.

Matrox has never made anything of the G being a gamers card and have targetted at g5550 professionals needing exceptional 2D image quality or the dual head capability. Customize The Tech Report G does have partial support for the DVD video decoding process but it does not perform inverse discrete cosine transform IDCT or motion compensation in hardware the two most demanding steps of the process.
This limits the secondary display to a resolution of only x on analog monitors, while the primary display can sustain a massive a x pixel landscape. It has the maximum compliment of 32Mb matros memory, the most the chip supports and full support for AGP4X and bus mastering. Guaranteed by Thu, Jan 3. Due to this lack of industry-wide support, and its toll on the limited graphics hardware of the time, EMBM only saw limited use during G’s time.
Conclusion So, we’ve seen that the G is not a gamers card. Matrox Clone to view a copy of one display on the other display. A bit bus reduces the board’s complexity and cost because fewer traces have to be used, and potentially the pin-count of the graphics processor can be significantly reduced if the chip is designed only for a bit bus. Acquired from a reliable source. It’s just not a gamers card sadly but will no doubt appeal to some of you for the other features.
This was the same as G LG HU85L projector needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture. The card sports a single passive heat sink, as quiet as they come, and has a nice low-profile design that should fit even the smallest corporate chassis.

By it’s very nature, a single animated head can’t convey the same range of emotion and information you get from watching a real person. Video capturing was possible but drivers are still based on VfW.
