Next chip in the line was Athena, powering the first Impression boards. Z-buffer with 16 bit bus was optional. Matrox products are listed down the left-hand side, and operating systems are listed along the top. The alpha blending patterns are visually poising many games as well. Mystique’s image quality became quickly inadequate and perhaps from there comes the bad nick “Matrox Mistake”. If you are looking for the most recent drivers, please click here.

Some textures in Incoming are missing like if 4 MB of chip is not enough. These theoretical numbers are as usual far from gaming reality. Let me skip some of the long history of the company and start with the inception of MGA- 64 bit Matrox Graphics architecture.

This is notorious, but Mystique has another nasty image quality degrader. Older 3d chips of Matrox had separate unit for shading and depth interpolation, but in Mystique these are now part of the DPU. It runs fast at x, but I feel slowdowns in complex scenes. This driver is 2D only and does not support TV Out. With my Mystique used for testing I could set the tightest timings even at top clocks: Mystiques equipped with 4 MB were upgradable to impressive 8 MB, but I doubt more memory would make much difference for this chip.
Average framerate difference corresponds to clock difference, how about difference in Final Reality:.

With both of my boards I did not find memory clock to be very limiting. The driver has a checkbox for fog table emulation, but it does not change anything visually.
From a business point of view it did its job well. Now for the cards. Mystique is powered by SG chip, evolving from Millennium’s W.
NET Framework is required. Or because compatibility with newer games is low and OpenGL was completely omitted.
Conclusion Mystique has its strong and weak sides. Matrox “SE” drivers have a standard interface that doesn’t require. Drivers in this section are zipped using the -RP option. NET Framework is required, even if version 2. Does not enable video features Release notes Source code: But strange things happened with SG, after base clock the benchmark results were not improving anymore, like if the board denied to be clocked higher. They must be unzipped using the -D option.

With 4 millions 3d controllers sold inMatrox was standing strong with around a quarter of the market. More resolution support may be available, please call or contact pid matrox. Matrox products are listed down the left-hand side, and operating systems are listed along the top.

Memory controller is in charge of depth comparison. It probably just fakes the feature so that games demanding it will run.
I did run full suite on the slowest board, but there are no surprises. Unlike Millennium these boards had friendly pricing and still good GUI performance as one would expect from Matrox.
