Matrox stepped forward in with their Impression Plus to innovate with one of the first 3D accelerator boards, but that card only could accelerate a very limited feature set no texture mapping , and was primarily targeted at CAD applications. PCI interface was enriched by bus mastering. There are few games were old with slower clocks beats fast and likely ability to texture from system memory is the reason. In the beginning of the nineties the mission was to bring workstation class performance to a PC. This includes solutions for when a large amount of monitors attached to the same PC is required. Beta drivers are not supported by Matrox Graphics Technical Support.

G was Matrox’s first fully AGP -compliant graphics processor. The Impression was aimed primarily at the CAD market.

Also note that if your monitor is Plug and Play compliant i. Views Read Edit View history. Through the s, Matrox’s cards followed changes in the hardware side of the market, to Multibus and then the variety of PC standards.

Drivers for older/legacy Matrox products

The G offered competent mllenium performance for the matro time, but was released shortly before a new generation of cards from Nvidia and ATI which completely outperformed it. The chip also supported features such as trilinear mip-map filtering and anti-aliasing though this was rarely used. File name Release date and file size Driver Notes, including operating system and Matrox graphics card support Disk 1 The frequency reduction affected the matrod refresh rate the card could run at high resolutions, crippling the Mystique for users of displays running UXGA x, for example.


Overclocking With early Matrox 3d cards things are not so simple if you are looking for maximum. Mystiques equipped with 4 MB were upgradable to impressive 8 MB, but I doubt more memory would make much difference for this chip.

Use dmy dates from January All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from December This board was one of the very few times that Matrox would outsource for their graphics processor, and was certainly a stop-gap measure to hold out until the G project was ready to go. Besides the ramdac Mystique also integrates video engine with hardware scaler.

The monitor program is also available for further monitor tuning advanced mode.

High price, weak DOS performance and very limited 3d functionality ensured little popularity of Impression. Mystique has DAC integrated to the core and plain synchronous memory interface to reduce board complexity and costs much below expensive Millennium.

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: Please note that JavaScript and style sheet are used in this website, Due to millrnium of the style sheet with the browser used in your computer, pages may not look as original.

I have only the Compaq type for board, so this one is used for testing.

Follow the on-screen instructions. The big news of Mystique is texturing unit. Few titles from bundle of gaming edition had around polygon scenes.


In general, compared to its peers, the Matrox Mystique was a competent board with its own set of advantages and disadvantages as was typical in this era of early 3D accelerators. Each bus is unidirectional and is designed to speed data transfer to and from the functional units within the chip.

Its 2D support rivaled the best cards available for performance and quality, however.

Without mipmapping support, textures in the distance appear to “swim”, waving around and appearing “noisy”, because the texture detail wasn’t being properly managed and this caused texture aliasing.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. However, that card only could accelerate a very limited feature set, and was primarily targeted at CAD applications. Re-installing PowerDesk for Windows AroundMatrox introduced a newer version of G, called GA. This is done in the Windows 95 Display Properties dialog box.
