The product had good 2D and 3D performance but produced poor 3D images with the result that it was derided in reviews, being compared unfavorably with the Voodoo1 and even being nicknamed the “Matrox Mystake”. Well, those weren’t the most missing feature of Mystique, but I understand it is good for CAD and similar no fun programs. The 3D acceleration appears to be identical with even the same bugs. Conclusion For a gamer Millennium 2 with price way higher then Mystique did not make sense. If you are looking for the most recent drivers, please click here. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Performance of this card is slightly above the G and G

Including bilinear filtering would have incurred a significant cost in the chip’s transistor budget for more computational resources and potentially reduce graphics core clock speed and performance due to a larger chip design. There is absolutely no difference between the two cards on the lowest of levels, including minimum performance. There was also the manufacturing cost consideration that comes with a larger processor size.

The G was essentially an improved and upgraded G Tweakers also don’t support memory timings so all that is left is good old clocking.


Unless otherwise indicated, HF drivers require version 1. Matrox is a producer of video card components and equipment for personal computers.

Another unknown factor are drivers, Millennium II not being exactly a gamers card millenniium lack some optimizations. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. For games that are truly playable faster clocked Mystique is still the better choice.

A later version of the Millennium included features similar to the Impression but by this time the series was lagging behind emerging vendors like 3dfx Interactive. Performance of this card is slightly above the G and G The answer to these limitations, and Matrox’s first attempt at targeting the consumer gaming PC market, would be the Matrox Mystique.

The newer Millennium card also contained 3D capabilities similar to the Impression Plus, and was nearly millenniun limited. In which case you won’t have to worry about the loss of a TV-Output port since the quality of a monitor capable of legibly running at x is much better than that of a standard TV. Conclusion For a gamer Millennium 2 with price way higher then Mystique did not make sense.

Drivers in this section are zipped using the -RP option. This page was last edited on 21 January millennihm, at Its intended audience was CAD users and others who desired high-performance, high-resolution GUI acceleration and was highly-priced accordingly.

Matrox Millennium graphics card – MGA W – 4 MB Overview – CNET

Z-fighting may also be a problem and enabling bit z-buffer can help this. Detractors, however, referred to the card as the “Matrox Mystake”. These drivers were tested and are allegedly supported for quite matrod distributions. In fact, it brakes transparency in Forsaken. I expected little impact from more memory and AGP bus. One of the most common boards based on this logic was marketed as Matrox Millennium P By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.


Matrox Mystique

Dorval, QuebecCanada. The 8 MB configuration used the memory expansion module. Later versions in the Matrox G series were never able to regain the crown, and despite milkennium claims for the Matrox Parheliatheir performance continued to be quickly outpaced by the major players.

It was not uncommon to pair up the Mystique or another Matrox card with a 3Dfx Voodoo Graphics 3D-only board because the Voodoo cards were the fastest and most well-supported 3D accelerators at the time. Matrox had been known for years as a significant player in the high-end 2D graphics accelerator market. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. It is over twice as fast as Millennium G
