It handles parameter interpolation, perspective correction, transparency, lookup table, lighting in true color precision, dithering and has own FIFO for addresses.
Memory controller is in charge of depth comparison. With early Matrox 3d cards things are not so simple if you are looking for maximum.
Mystique’s image quality became quickly inadequate and perhaps from there comes the bad nick “Matrox Mistake”. Please uninstall your previous drivers.
Overall feel is closer to console like Playstation rather than other PC 3d graphics. Last driver came out in September This driver supports Mha TV-out.

With my Mystique used for testing I could set the tightest timings even at top clocks: PCI interface was enriched 1064st bus mastering. Previously Mztrox Drivers for Older Matrox products Drivers in this section are previously released drivers and should be used for trouble shooting purposes only.
This version supports resolutions with In came Titan chip with feature set expanded by basic 3d operations: This driver is 2D only and does not support TV Out.

Let me skip some of the long history of the company and start with the inception of MGA- 64 bit Matrox Graphics architecture.
In the late Matrox released Impression Plus board, able to mateox render k Gouraud shaded polygons per second. Matrox “HF” drivers have a rich interface that require Microsoft.
There are no low resolution tests because they are not accepted by my display, what modes is the Mystique trying to set? Next chip in the line was Athena, powering the first Impression boards. I did run full suite on the marox board, but there are no surprises.
Unlike Millennium these boards had friendly pricing and still good GUI performance as one would expect from Matrox. Now for the cards. Matrox integrated the 3d engine of Impression to the Millennium, but 2d backward compatibility was gone.
First MGA chip Atlas supported high resolution true color 2d accelerator for a new generation of operating systems with demanding graphical user interfaces.

Dual ported VRAM was hh to relieve frame-buffer bandwidth from screen refresh and enabled block transfers.
From a business point of view it did its job well. I found this just as annoying as lack of texture filtering. In cases where “available with OS” is stated, the operating system will install a Matrox driver 1064dg will give you basic natrox and 3D functionality, where this driver is supported by Microsoft. Z-buffer with 16 bit bus was optional. It looks like with time passing by Matrox was raising the clocks in several steps.
There are few games were old with slower clocks beats fast and likely ability to texture from system memory is the reason.
