My parhelia is capable of running only one test.



Can we hope in a new card from Matrox?

Ant, can you tell something to us???

Thank you.

my G200 doesn't run it at all ... :(

Can we hope for an add-on card from Matrox, for getting full blown DX9c shaders ?

Amiga, i have bad news for you my friend. There will never ever be a card by matrox again that will please gamers, not even semi-gamers :(

Looking at the current OS interface development scene, a graphic card must support all the 3d api in order to be compliant with the new enhanced buzz. Windows Directx or Linux OpenGL. I think that now is the time to seriuos look to an alternative graphic solution.

I'm really interested in 3D labs, but it cost to much.

Anyone as any idea?

Yes, nvidia nv40 sports very interesting features.

Yes AM please buy an nV card, then find a nice nV forum where you can lament to your hearts content about missing this and that.

This is not right.
i have buy a 400 & card without any of the claimed function and with a lots of bug.
Even if you are an administrator you can't tell me what i can't say. I'm not writing offensive text.

You chose to buy the card.
Issues with it are/were well documented by that stage from memory.
Your upset a 2+ year old card doesnt work with the latest and greatest 3D mark.
The same card has issues with the previous 3D mark, and your surprised the latest version has problems ???
Go and buy a new card if you are so upset with it.

In addition, Ant can tell you nothing. He has his own issues to worry about.
