Tweak3D heeft een preview in elkaar gesleuteld van de Matrox G450, zoals bekend een G400 op .18 micron met DDR SDRAM geheugen en een 64 bit (i.p.v. 128 bit) geheugenbus. Over de verschillen met de G400 schrijven ze:
The main differences between the G400 and the G450 are enhanced features such as 0.18u fabrication process, core speed increase, native DDR memory architecture, a second RAMDAC for increased resolution and refresh rate support for the secondary display, TV-out encoder able to be set at a different resolution than your main display, support for DirectX EMBM, DVI support, and increased 2D/3D performance.
Matrox has once again introduced a follow up worthy of recognition. Many of the features of the G450 were introduced in the G400. Unlike other semi-annual graphics card updates that usually deal with speed increments, Matrox decided to throw in a few new features while increasing speed. This is one product to watch out for. Expect Matrox to do a similar MAX version of the G450 and a Marvel version.
