Some textures in Incoming are missing like if 4 MB of chip is not enough. Now for the cards. Newer revisions of Mystique do not want to texture from system memory, so Direct3d compatibility with 2 MB is too low to be bothered. Canadian brands Commercial computer vision systems Companies based in Montreal Electronics companies established in Dorval Electronics companies of Canada Graphics hardware companies Multinational companies headquartered in Canada Privately held companies of Canada S graphics cards establishments in Quebec. Next chip in the line was Athena, powering the first Impression boards. Millennium’s engine is exposed to Direct3d, but I don’t know any titles except Turok which would not require texturing. This is notorious, but Mystique has another nasty image quality degrader.

I did run full suite on the slowest board, but there are no surprises. Matrox Mystique Let me skip some of the long history of the company and start with the inception of MGA- 64 grapjic Matrox Graphics architecture. Views Read Edit View history.

In general, compared to its peers, impdession Matrox Mystique was a competent board with its own set of advantages and disadvantages as was typical in this era of early 3D accelerators.

Free and open-source device drivers: It looks like with time passing by Matrox was raising the clocks in several steps. It is not nice to keep customers in the dark around such matters. In the late Matrox released Impression Plus board, able to matrxo render k Gouraud shaded polygons per second. Retrieved from ” https: To support Unix and Linux, Matrox has released only binary drivers for most of their product line and one partially free and open-source driver for the G card which comes with a binary blob to enable some additional functionality.


Few titles from bundle of gaming edition had around polygon scenes. Z-buffer with 16 bit bus was optional.

Dorval, QuebecCanada. 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: There was also the manufacturing cost consideration that comes with a mateox processor size.

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. There are no low resolution tests because they are not accepted by my display, what modes is the Mystique trying to set?

This includes solutions for when a large amount of monitors attached to the same PC is required. The actual hardware was identical.

The big news of Mystique is texturing unit. Detractors, however, referred martox the card as the “Matrox Mystake”. Mystique’s matrix performance was very close to that of the much more expensive Millennium card, especially at XGA x resolution and lower, where the SGRAM bandwidth was not a performance hindrance.


With my Mystique used for testing I could set the tightest timings even at top clocks: Matrox Graphics is the primary consumer and end-user brand, while Matrox Video markets digital video editing solutions, and Matrox Imaging sells high-end video capture systems and “smart cameras”, video cameras with a built-in computer for machine vision applications.

The company got into gamers mind despite price premium. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Average framerate difference corresponds to clock difference, imprsesion about difference in Final Reality: The Impression was aimed primarily at the CAD market.

First Millennium is specified as 50 MHz but 60 is a more common clock. This card came with a different software bundle targeting business users and excluding the games. Matrox is a producer of video card components and equipment for personal computers.
