Dxdiag allows you to enable AGP texturing, but the built-in test fails and in fact even some games crashes at the start. Tweakers also don’t support memory timings so all that is left is good old clocking. In fact, it brakes transparency in Forsaken. Overwrite the older ICD in the Windows directory. Matrox “HF” drivers have a rich interface that require Microsoft. It is the last MSI compatible card. Continue to Productiva G review.

Note that the final drivers for G include a OpenGL driver with a bug that breaks millenniumm water. For games that are truly playable faster clocked Mystique is still the better choice.

Drivers for older/legacy Matrox products
None of vertex fog, texture mip mapping, and dithering is supported. Navigation Main page Recent changes Random page Help. Games like Populous, Take no Prisoners and Thief wisely reject the chip as hardware accelerator, and texture-less Shogo should do the same.
Millennium 2 In summer Matrox released successor to the famous Millennium featured even higher 2d speeds, higher resolutions, crisper image output and for me most importantly a Direct3d compliant engine.
Matrox had to hold on a bit longer to cover gamers with G, but that advanced architecture is not vintage enough to be covered here.
Performance of this card is slightly above the G and G It is built on nm manufacturing instead of G’s nm and typically does not need a heatsink. Continue to Productiva G review.
There are exception though- Millennium Matox supports 3d rendering in 32 bit colors and 32 bit Z-buffer. They must be unzipped using the -D option.
Matrox Millennium II graphics card – MGA 2164W – 4 MB Series
Checkbox for acceleration of fogging still does nothing. I expected little impact from more memory and AGP bus.
Conclusion For a gamer Millennium 2 with price way higher then Mystique did not make sense. The creepy feeling of hardware masochism. Mystique was oriented on mid-end consummer and business market, offering excellent 2D performance, traditional for Matrox.
Matrox – Vogons Wiki
Matrox’s first Direct3D 8 accelerator, although it was initially advertised has having partial D3D9 capabilities. This was only used for the Headcasting software. But it is obvious competing semi-professional cards Permedia 2 and Revolution 3D offered much better 3d.
With larger framebuffer 32 bit colors are possible, but performance hit remains steep. It is not Li compatible. There were a few games included with the card that interfaced with it.
Like the Impression, it is a rudimentary 3D accelerator with support for gouraud shading. Last stop is much less known G, which looks similar to Mystique and Millennium II, but actually hides quite a few mlllennium. Bad news was that the engine is only a little different from Mystique and is just as well feature poor. If you are looking for the most recent drivers, please click here. G’s OpenGL support was very poor until years into its life.
Millennium 2 AGP
The 3D acceleration appears to be identical with even the same bugs. Initially the card did not have an OpenGL driver. Cards had 4 MB of memory and could be expanded with modules of 4, 8 or even 12 MB memory. Matrox “HF” drivers have a rich interface that require Microsoft.
Drivers for older operating systems Windows 95, Window 3. Unreal and Unreal Tournament may display an incorrect, overly bright image. Gaming experience There is a newer driver for the Millenium 2, but that does not mean improvement for 3d gaming.
