Looks like overall D3D does pretty well but the OpenGL ICD is somewhat lacking. I must say though that I play all my games at 1024X768X16 and even OpenGL games play fairly smoothly, including Q3A. It would be nice to see a performance OpenGL ICD like the 3DFX voodoo series of cards have with the WickedGL drivers from Metabyte. The only additional cooling I have for the video card is a Radio Shack fan on the stock heatsink so I think it could do better with additional cooling.

This is the first Matrox card I've owned since about 3 years ago when I had a Millenium G200 so I'm not sure if these scores are good or bad...I just thought I'd throw them out there for everyone to see...:D

They seem about the same as my G400 non-max 32 meg card, and I have a slower processor. I run a P3 @880, and a BX motherboard. Both the Quake3 and the 3Dmark2k1 scores are almost identical. Not too great for a card that is 2 years newer. Of course my card doesnt do head casting. Oh well.
