Matrox Millennium MGI G45 MDHA32DB G450 32mb AGP Dual Display Graphics Card
This meant that the primary monitor could run much higher resolutions and refresh rates than the secondary. Show More Show Less.
The DualHead capability not only offered desktop widening but also desktop cloning two screens showing the same thing and a special “DVDMAX” mode which outputs video overlays onto the second monitor. Boards shipped with dual analog VGA connectors. Even with initial driver difficulties, Matrox G was very competitive.

Despite the feature, it is inaccessible by DirectX driver. Overclocking tests showed that the core was unable to achieve higher speeds mdja G even though it was manufactured on a newer process. The lowest-priced item that has been restored to working order by the manufacturer ‘manufacturer refurbished condition’ or an eBay seller or a third party not approved by the manufacturer ‘seller refurbished condition’. This is an evolution of G’s “DualBus”, which had been bit.

G was known for being particularly dependent on the host system’s CPU for high 3D performance. This was attributed both to its architecture and to the poor drivers it relied on for much of its life especially OpenGL ICD.
Eventually a native OpenGL driver called “TurboGL” was released, but it was only designed to support several popular games of the time e. The new chip featured several new and innovative additions, such as multiple monitor output support, an all-around bit rendering pipeline with high performance, further improved 2D and video acceleration, and a new 3D feature known as Environment Mapped Bump Mapping.
By shrinking the core, costs are reduced because more chips are made per wafer at the factory, and Matrox can take the time to fix earlier mistakes in the core, and trim or add new functionality. It does this by improving on the 96 constant registers specified for by DirectX 8. Applications for this product include computer-aided dispatch, process control, and alarm monitoring. Matrox’s award-winning Powerdesk mattrox drivers and control panel integrated Dualhead in a very flexible and functional way that become world-renowned for its effectiveness.
Matrox tried to make stable drivers for several months but with no luck. Matrox took the technology developed from the G project, refined it, and basically doubled it up to form the G processor.
Only a few games supported the feature, such as Dungeon Keeper 2 and Millennium Soldier: Bthat are fully 4X compliant and run at the higher speed if the motherboard is capable as well. No ratings or reviews yet. Matrox was known for their quality analog display output on prior cards and the G is no exception.
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. Matrox made it very clear that they were committed to supporting OpenGL, however, and development rapidly progressed. This item may or may not be in original packaging. It was also equipped with a hardware transform and lighting unit capable of processing 20—30 million triangles per second.

MGA-G processor added a second pixel pipeline, hardware transform and lighting, and the HeadCasting Engine, a hardware implementation of a vertex shader for accelerated matrix palette skinning. It is purely a Direct3D 6.
Where many cards were crippled by blurry output, especially as the resolution and refresh rate increased, the Matrox cards delivered very sharp and clear images. As said earlier, G amtrox at launch from driver problems.
