Return to General Old Hardware. G was Matrox’s first graphics processor to require added cooling in the form of a heatsink.

Power Consumption 4 Watts. Each bus is unidirectional and is designed to speed data transfer to and from the functional units within the chip. Anywho no progress, but this is a cool utility. I tried the motherboard controller, still nothing. It features a unique anti-aliasing technique called fragment anti-aliasing that provides very high quality claimed 16X-equivalent MSAA.

Matrox G graphics card – MGA G – 8 MB Overview – CNET

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.

I’m not sure of it’s origin, so I dunno, myself. There were a few games included with the card that interfaced with it. The G was essentially an improved and upgraded G You are downloading trial software.

A later version increased clock speeds but also eliminated AGP 2x 3. As for the 2D part, it’s safe to say the videocard has no known flaws.
