This lets the card do realistic facial animations and other operations which call upon the MPS functionality. Postage cost can’t be calculated. See other items More 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 tried to make stable drivers for several months but with no luck. 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. Hardware MJPEG capturing can be unstable but software compression, using a good video codec, gives much better results anyway.

You can see that the features on the card endear it to a much different market than one that would purchase a GeForce3. There are 1 items available.

With regard to its hardware, G’s triangle setup engine, called the “Warp Engine” ironically, was somewhat slower than the counterparts aboard the competition’s cards. 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.

An item that has been previously used. It does this by improving on the 96 constant registers specified for by DirectX 8.


Perhaps the most notable feature of G is its ability to drive two separate monitors to display a single desktop. A Matrox user going by name Adis hacked original drivers matrpx make the card work under Windows Watch list is full.

This item may xual a floor model or an item that has been returned to the seller after a period of use. MGA-G processor added a second pixel pipeline, hardware transform and lighting, and the HeadCasting Engine, a hardware implementation g5500 a vertex shader for accelerated matrix palette skinning.

The chip had 3 pixel pipelines with 3 texture units each. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

To conclude, HeadCasting, for me anyway has no use outside a business environment and wherever I’ve encountered a business incident where the technology could be employed, more established, effective means of communication are present.

The underlying hardware is a highly capable DVD playback solution and the software layered on top is excellent. Internally the G is a bit processor, using what Matrox calls a “DualBus” architecture.

Times have changed however. Instead, they have tailored their newest solution to a different market altogether. Matrox Multi-Display Zoom to view a portion of one display full-screen on the other display.

In the G incarnation, the DualHead technology is taken to the next step. Basically the hardware supports a full triangle setup and acceleration engine and up to date rendering features just it’s not as quick gead any recent hardware as we’ll find out.

Matrox G400

We can see that gaming is not the cards strong point at all sadly. This lets the card do realistic facial animations and other operations which call upon the MPS functionality. Passive cooling heat sink with no fan for silent operation and extra reliability.

Being a relatively new part, the card also has hardware support for the major D3D and OpenGL primitive formats and is a full bit renderer along the entire pipeline including bit multitexture and final bit colour output. Skip to main content. What was the best tech product of ?

DualHead was still a novelty then and Matrox pulled it off very well and gave the masses a twin output solution. Subject to credit approval. Accompanied by the duxl maybe but if the narrator is present, what’s the use for the HeadCast?
