Few titles from bundle of gaming edition had around polygon scenes. First MGA chip Atlas supported high resolution true color 2d accelerator for a new generation of operating systems with demanding graphical user interfaces. First decision is if to leave default 2: It was blazing fast 2D card with crisp output for modern graphical interfaces like just fresh Windows Its 2D support rivaled the best cards available for performance and quality, however.

The real fight for 3d gamer begun with Mystique in and Matrox kept on releasing newer versions until summer The newer Millennium card also contained 3D capabilities similar to the Impression Plus, and was nearly as limited. The frequency reduction affected the maximum refresh rate the card could run at high resolutions, crippling the Mystique 1064xg users of displays running UXGA x, for example.

With my Mystique used for testing I could set the tightest timings even at top clocks: The 8 MB configuration used the memory expansion module. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

There are few games were old with slower clocks beats fast mgaa likely ability to texture from system memory is the reason. Besides the ramdac Mystique also integrates video engine with hardware scaler. In cases where “available with OS” is stated, the operating system will install a Matrox driver that will give you basic 2D and 3D functionality, where this driver is supported by Microsoft.


It was based heavily on the Millennium but with various 1064zg and some cost-cutting measures. Very few games took advantage of the 3D capabilities of Impression Plus, with the only known games being the three titles that were bundled with the card in its ‘3D Superpack’ [2] CD bundle: It was not uncommon to pair up the Mystique or another Matrox card with a 3Dfx Voodoo Mmga 3D-only board because the Voodoo cards were the fastest and most well-supported 3D accelerators at the time.

Let me skip some of the long history of the company and start with the inception of MGA- 64 bit Matrox Graphics architecture.

High price, weak DOS performance and very limited 3d functionality ensured little popularity of Impression. With early Matrox 3d cards things are not so simple if you are looking for maximum.

Newer revisions of Mystique do not want to texture from system memory, so Direct3d compatibility with 2 MB is too low to be bothered. The original Mystique was introduced inwith the slightly upgraded Mystique having been released in Unless otherwise indicated, HF drivers require version 1. Dual ported VRAM was employed to relieve frame-buffer bandwidth from screen refresh and enabled block transfers.

With 4 millions 3d controllers sold inMatrox was standing strong with around a quarter of the market. First MGA chip Atlas supported high resolution true color 2d accelerator for a new generation of operating systems with demanding graphical user interfaces.


First decision is if to leave default 2: Fortunately Matrox Overclocking Tools are fun to play with once you get used to the formula. Gouraud shading and Z-comparisons. The retail version of Mystique included 3 3D game titles, including: In more generic terms the DPU is a bare pixel pipeline.

164sg, the card was identical in feature-set to the original Mystique and offered almost identical performance. Or because compatibility with newer games is low and OpenGL was completely omitted.

A special business-oriented version of Mystiquecalled Mystique Businesswas launched as well. Matrox “SE” drivers have a standard interface that doesn’t require.

In came Titan chip with feature set expanded by basic 3d operations: It runs fast at x, but I feel slowdowns in complex scenes. If you are looking for the most recent drivers, please click here.
