3D hardware.net heeft een vrij uitgebreide review van de Matrox Millennium G400 32MB gepost. Hier heb je een stukkie over de lage resultaten van hun ICD.
The Millennium G400 is just behind the S320II when it comes to Demo1.dm2, which shows that Matrox indeed have improved their ICD. The ICD still have some mileage to go, which is very apparent when looking at the scores obtained from the Crusher demo. The Millennium G400 gets shamefully low framerates! Why? Some time ago, there were reports on that the G400 didn't have 100% Triangle setup on-board, and that was one reason for the very low scores in Crusher. We spoke to Matrox about this, and they reassured us that that was not the case. But what is then? If it's not in the hardware, then it must be in the software, the ICD has a major flaw here as it struggles with Crusher demo but runs nicely with Demo1 (which is much less intensive). This problem should hopefully be fixed by Matrox in the future. Yes, we've tested it with Quake3 Test as well, and yes the Timedemo IS broken, that is why the scores obtained there should not be stared at blindly. Rather, they show how the Millennium G400 performs in comparison to a TNT2, and in Quake3 Test it surprised us, the G400 is not far behind the S320II. Also note that the current version of the OpenGL ICD does not support a 32bit Z-Buffer, which means that Q3Test will have to run with a 16bit Z-buffer, when doing 32bpp rendering. Well, keep on working on that ICD Matrox. So, for all you deathmatch fraggers out there, the G400 is not quite there yet, let's hope that this is fixed in future driver versions.
