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 was attributed both to its architecture and to the poor drivers it relied on for much of its life especially OpenGL ICD. Some writers believed Parhelia to have a “crippled” triangle-setup engine that starved the rest of the chip in typical 3D rendering tasks . Only a few games supported the feature, such as Dungeon Keeper 2 and Millennium Soldier: This is an evolution of G’s “DualBus”, which had been bit. This, unfortunately, proved not to be an efficient arrangement in most situations. The “” suffix refers to the bit ring bus.

Skip to main content. The Parhelia series was Matrox ‘s attempt to return to the market after a long hiatus, their first significant effort since the G and G lines had become uncompetitive.
The “Surround Gaming” support allowed the card to drive three monitors creating a unique level gaming immersion. Sell now – Have one to sell? 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.
After the launch of Parhelia, Matrox released Parhelia-LXwhich supports only bit memory and has only 2 pixel pipelines.

Bthat are fully 4X compliant and run at the higher speed if the motherboard is capable as well. Perhaps the most notable feature of G is its ability to drive two separate monitors to display a single desktop.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The frame buffer is in RGBA This was attributed both to its architecture and to the poor drivers it relied on for much of its life especially OpenGL ICD. Mouse over to Zoom – Click to enlarge. 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. 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.

Overclocking tests showed that the core was unable to achieve higher speeds than G even though it was manufactured on a newer process. Shipping cost cannot be calculated. All articles with dead external links Articles with dead external links from April Webarchive template wayback links.
This item may or may not be in original packaging. The Parhelia was the first GPU by Matrox to be equipped with a bit memory bus, giving it an advantage maxror other cards of the time in the area of memory bandwidth. Learn more – opens in new window or tab.
