Samsung receives UL certification for “unbreakable” phone display. For those lucky enough to have two digital monitors, the G will run them both. Basically the hardware supports a full triangle setup and acceleration engine and up to date rendering features just it’s not as quick as any recent hardware as we’ll find out. I’m maybe the wrong person to convey the benefits of HeadCasting and Hexus’ primary focus isn’t this type of card. The card supports dual display on a wide combination of output devices. The core itself is created on a 0. Remember that the Quake3 benchmarks we do at Hexus are with all performance sapping rendering features turned on.

I can just about see the usefulness of this but I’d much rather sit and watch a live human being. Just remember that it’s not a gaming card.

The cable has two outputs. Before we analyse the card and its performance and features, lets take a look at the technology that makes up the G core. While it would be nice if the card was a full DX8 part and managed to perform very well in 3D applications, that’s simply not the case.

DualHead was still a novelty then and Matrox pulled it off very well and gave matrox millennium g550 masses a twin output solution. On the version tested, the card matrox millennium g550 a regular pin D-SUB connector and a seconday DVI connector and versions exist with dual DVI connectors for hooking up 2 digital flat panels or 2 digital monitors.

HeadFone is the application I can see businesses making most use of for site to site communcations. DVDMax is part of the DualHead technology and allows full screen, full speed digital video playback on the 2nd head.


It has constant registers to allow it to do a full 32 matrix skin of a 3D mesh in hardware. However that hasn’t stopped them making matrox millennium g550 and they continue to develop new products and matrox millennium g550 the products they ,illennium have.

The card struggles playing Quake3 with everything on and the Gainward Ti ends up being over 8 times faster at x It’s millennimu matrox millennium g550 a gamers card sadly but will no doubt appeal to some millenmium you for the other features. This DigiMask is then used by the HeadCasting engine on the chip in a variety of other software applications to bring the head to life.

For sure, HeadCasting is an interesting technology and we can applaud Matrox for taking the first steps to bring millenniim a technology to the masses, it just doesn’t have the features or ‘realness’ to work properly and I can’t envision a good business fit. You want Intel to intentionally matrox millennium g550 on a National Bagelfest Day Shortbread. The system would still be card limited even on an XP or lower.

I didn’t experience any signal quality problems.

The G makes use of its vertex and pallete skinning engine to support hardware skinning and matrox millennium g550 matroxx for supposedly phot realistic heads. The Gainward scored 3DMarks or nearly matrox millennium g550 5 times the score of the Matrox. First off, a quick look at the highlights and features that most people identify with. NVIDIA cards millennikm famed for excellent 2D image quality but recent cards, especially from Gainward and to some extend Leadtek have had very good 2D image quality at high resolution.


Matrox G550 Low Profile PCI

Times have changed however. DualHead is also not a novelty any more. Again, it’s obvious that the cards strengths lie elsewhere and that gaming isn’t really acceptable, not with current titles at least, matrox millennium g550 with a highly capable AthlonXP platform to work with.

Matrox has never made anything of the G being a gamers card and have targetted at graphics professionals needing exceptional 2D image quality or the dual head capability. This lets the card do realistic facial animations and other operations which call upon the MPS functionality. Remember that the Quake3 benchmarks we matrox millennium g550 at Hexus are with all performance sapping rendering features turned on.

You can select a range of prefabricated heads or import your own Matrox millennium g550.

Video conferencing works fine and you get mayrox more human interaction. I’m maybe the wrong person to convey the benefits of HeadCasting and Hexus’ primary focus isn’t this type of card. You use a technology and software application called Matrox millennium g550. Yep, there’s only one port at the back. Lets take a look at the formal specification.

I recently reviewed the Gainward GeForce3 Ti on the same base platform, all that has changed is the graphics card.
