Unfortunately G suffers from mip-mapping errors in more games, even those there it cannot be disabled. Advertising seems to be blocked by your browser. Soon the prices dropped to dollars and G was presented as office card- and it was excelent at that. I am saving screenshots at this position to compare texturing of the fence. This raised my expectations regarding gaming speed, but surprisingly it did not exceed tested 4 MB G unless memory capacity is of concern. But Matrox pulled this one out after press announcement claiming G is a powerful DirectX 6 accelerator and quickly drop such boasting later.

This Hewlett-Packard card will be your guide in the amazing world of stipple alpha blending. This is the oldest Matrox v100 you can play Unreal with and it shows. Gaming experience Good news is that unlike Mystique and Millenium II this card displays textures in all games, only world texturing of Half Life and Thief resists. This driver was not digitally signed.
I am more inclined to believe that Matrox realized how silly it was to come out with this stipple alpha madness in and decided to pretend they were not even trying to be good in 3d. I found out one big thing, G supports multitexturing. Baseline per polygon mip-mapping mxtrox implemented as well.
