MATROX MILLENIUM II PCI DRIVER
A later version increased clock speeds but also eliminated AGP 2x 3. Well, those weren’t the most missing feature of Mystique, but I understand it is good for CAD and similar no fun programs. None of vertex fog, texture mip mapping, and dithering is supported. They must be unzipped using the -D option. Again, such undisclosed variations aren’t very nice. It is the last MSI compatible card. For games that are truly playable faster clocked Mystique is still the better choice.

Z-fighting may also be a problem and enabling bit z-buffer can help this. NET Framework, even if version 2. Performance is similar to a GeForce4 Ti.
Drivers for older/legacy Matrox products
With larger framebuffer 32 bit colors are possible, but performance hit remains steep. If you are looking for the most recent drivers, please click here. Drivers in this section are previously released drivers milleniu, should be used for trouble shooting purposes only. Tweakers also don’t support memory timings so all that is left is good old clocking.
Initial version of the GPU has some bugs with secondary displays and also shipped with a low clock speed because of manufacturing difficulties. There are some good points for Millennium II. But it is obvious competing semi-professional cards Permedia 2 and Revolution 3D offered much better 3d. It does not support hardware texture mapping. Cards had 4 MB of memory and could be expanded with modules of 4, 8 or even 12 MB memory.
The lower memory clock should be more than compensated by WRAM interface as long ki serious resolution is used.

The image is crisp, has fine colors. It does have a hardware transform and lighting unit but it is not Direct3D 7 compliant.
In fact, it brakes transparency in Forsaken. Previously Released Drivers for Older Matrox products Drivers in this section are previously released drivers and should be used for trouble shooting purposes only. G’s OpenGL support was very poor until years into its life. Overwrite the older ICD in the Windows directory.
It is not Direct3D compatible. Gaming experience There is a newer driver for the Millenium 2, but that does not mean improvement for 3d gaming.
Millennium 2 AGP
There are also a number of OEM models with different specifications. Matrox specifies Millennium II clock to 62,5 MHz, mine runs at 62,05 and some boards were even down to In early the final OpenGL driver was ready. Newer versions, including Mystiquekept appearing until summer Conclusion For a gamer Millennium 2 with price way higher then Mystique did not make sense.
Also AGP cards were produced in high numbers and that is what I am going to test with 8 megabytes of video memory. As for the 2D part, it’s safe to say the videocard has no known flaws.
Unless otherwise indicated, HF drivers require version 1. Its intended audience was CAD users and others who desired high-performance, high-resolution GUI acceleration and mattrox highly-priced accordingly. Again, such undisclosed variations aren’t very nice.
In absolute numbers the Mystique would be leading, but in relative numbers cards score the same because Millennium puts its 8 MB of memory to use in advanced games. So better to keep it off, it is likely just a driver hoax. However, apart from higher nillenium, upgrading memory did not make much difference. There is also a G chip which was OEM-only. Overall, Matrox Mystique is a good choice for 2D graphics alongside 3dfx Voodoo.
Performance of this card is slightly above the G and G
