Well, here are some nice pics although not the best that I’ve captured to add to what you’ve already seen in other reviews. Also, it should be interesting to see how the GMax can edge out the competition with bit rendering. This is provided that you have set the DVDMax option to scale the movies into full screen. In fact, the performance at bit for q3demo2 was better than bit for low resolutions. However, under very close observation, I can see that the GMax image quality is crisper and more well defined. I was hoping that the OpenGL ICD in the newer driver revision would be improved, but instead, its performance dropped as compared to the older 5.
Most graphic cards do not support this and actually requires the user to lower their primary display refresh rates to 50Hz or 60Hz in order to output the display simultaneously to a TV. Gamers would find it an irresistable vdeo as it offers high quality TV output, as well as a second display for certain games that utilizes the feature.
The Enhance Text option really helps make text look sharper on the TV. A bit bus reduces the board’s complexity and y400 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. The G Max is not far behind and leads in the remaining tests. Boards shipped with dual analog VGA connectors.
Matrox was known for their quality analog display output on prior cards and the G is no exception. Due to time constraints, I did not run any further tests. They are almost perfect. The Installation, Driver features and Programs.
Overall Rating Out of a maximum of 5 Star. There are several more settings available if you enable DualHead display.
Well, enough of my usual rantings, I’m sure most of you are dying to find out just how well this card performs as compared to the other cards that’s available in the market.
I’m not sure if it could be done, but if it, perhaps Matrox should consider placing that option in their next driver revision?
This feature is known as “DualHead” and was a decisive edge for Matrox over the card’s competitors at the time.

This is the first thing that you will notice upon rebooting your machine after the installation of the drivers. Numerous tabs on the display properties window is available for you to configure each option.
Quake Matroz Test v1. I did not try any overclocking on the card as I felt that it is too precious and expensive to fry the card.
Basically, this rendering engine ensures that richly textured 3D environments are rendered with vibrant colors and sharp contrasts. This page was last edited on 4 Januaryat MS DirectX Version 6.
For professionals, the dual display feature helps improve productivity by doubling up your display workspace. If you configure this properly, g4400 hardly need to readjust your monitor every time you execute a game that uses a different resolution. The system was equipped with MB of SDRAM and different processor speeds were also used to assess the difference in speed gain with higher processor speed.

Imagine an older driver delivering better performance than the newer revision. Matrox tried to make stable drivers for several months but with no luck.
I showed a similar feature to my colleague the other day, using a friend’s notebook and he was already drooling at it. The QID Series and Extio F products support multi-display with up to 4 displays in stretched g400 independent mode with a wide variety of display resolutions including widescreen modes.
Other options are self explanatory.
Previously Released Drivers
It is sad to see new products arriving at our doorsteps only after so many months after its first release.
This tab allows one to control the gamma settings of your display. Now, that’s certainly a case for Mulder. Handy tool if you need to magnify a mattox area of your screen.
