View Full Version : What is Matrox really up to?

14th June 2001, 22:05
Drivers lost, late, cards cancelled, plans changed, secrecy, website flaky, vague answers, products and support, with no notes... what is really going on? will it be good or bad, and for who? Sounds like some bizarre paranoid conspiracy, well, maybe I am just being paranoid, but they are acting a little weird, and companies do things and pop up out of no-where with radical changes, all the time... so, everytime, something happens, it just makes me jittery wondering, will I put myself at risk if I invest in more Matrox products?

they just want to surprise everyone, they dont continue the video tools because they need everyone working on the g800 drivers and tools (yes, it will have tv, video capture and all other functions you could ask for, and yes, it wont be the g550 http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif)
they will announce it on tuesday and start selling it end of august, first samples are secretly shipped to certain reviewers, so that first benchmarks can be released on the day of announcement.
the card will have everything you want and a lot of things you never thought or dreamt about and also a lot of stuff noone will need for the next 10 years because cpu's arent up to the task yet.
and it will have dual head, too http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/biggrin.gif

it will be the refresh model of the g400 series much like nvidia with their geforce line of cards (just tweaking the speed)
I wish they somehow figured to do DDRSGRAM
now that wouldve been surprising http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

I like most do not know, and those who know can't talk, well they shouldn't anyway
