    Default I finally have an M3D :)

    Only taken me 20 years to finally get one but one popped up on an eBay alert and I dived straight in and bought it 20200610_145525.jpg

    Looking forward to playing with it in the coming days!
    Cheers,

    Wow. Was this between Millennium PCI and G200?

    My first setup with a 3D card was a Matrox Millenium and a M3D, on a pentium 166MMX.

    That car brings back memories, memories and wanting a 3DFX and getting an M3D instead.

    I built machines back in the day with G200, G400 and last Matrox machine was an Athlon with a Parhelia 128. I still think that was the best image quality ever. Parhelia was while I was in Blackpool working at Victoria Hospital. Damn, that was 2003

    I never got to buy a Parhelia and still think it is a shame it was unfeasible for Matrox to stay in the GFX market. Ah well.. I seem to be a fan of things that didn't make it (e.g. Blackberry, specifically OS 10).
