Jeremy Allford van AGN 3D heeft een korte preview gepost van de Matrox G400. De info is afkomstig van de GDC (Games Developers Conference, Thresh's Firingsquad heeft er meer info over). De G400 heeft een paar leuke features, zoals Dual Head Technology (dual monitor met 1 videokaart) en de specs zien er verder ok uit:
Even though Dualhead may sound cool to me, I am sure there are plenty of you out there that can live without it. All you want is pure 3D speed for playing your favorite games, something that the G400 is truly capable of. With an expected processor speed in the ballpark of around 150MHz, the G400 should be on par performance wise with the Voodoo 3 and TNT2. Matrox said that 3D performance should be around 3X the speed of the G200, something that only hands-on benchmarking can confirm. For those of you that are in need of some benchmarking results, the card is currently getting 5000+ in 3Dmark 99 MAX. Other results that I have seen on the web are 800+ in 3Dwinbench and 100FPS in Forsaken at 1024x768 with rear view on. Quake 2 results are missing at this time though, due to some driver tweaks that need to be done before Matrox releases them.
Zie AGN 3D voor de rest (o.a. een paar screenshots).
