Sharky heeft laatst even gecheckt bij Matrox om te vragen wanneer ze van plan waren om die kaartjes nu eens te versturen:
The Matrox Millennium G400 Series is currently shipping through its on-line store and the distribution channel. All efforts are being placed on fulfilling the number of pre-orders placed on the Matrox on-line store. Those customers that pre-booked prior to June 11,1999 have begun receiving their board and will continue to do so until the end of July. Those that ordered after June 11, 1999 can expect a delivery time of 5-6 weeks (from time of order) for both the Millennium G400 and the Millennium G400 Max. Although Matrox is currently shipping in volume, the overwhelming demand for the product may cause some delivery delays."
[Q] What are the new dates that buyers can expect to be able to purchase a Matrox Millenium G400 MAX through either mail order or at retail?
[A] We are currently shipping Millennium G400 Series products in volume. However, the huge demand for our Millennium G400 Series products may create some delivery delays.
[Q] There has been speculation on the web that the G400 MAX has been delayed due to lower than expected yields on the 150MHz+ capable cores. Is this true? If so, how is Matrox coping with the problem in order to satisfy buyers who have pre-ordered the card online already?
[A] I have seen some speculation on this subject, but chip yields have not been an issue.
[Q] In terms of the G400's driver development, what percentage would you estimate that the drivers are currently delivering on the hardware's total raw performance capabilities in both OpenGL and Direct3D?
[A] I would prefer not to quote a percentage, but I will say that there will be a definitive increase in performance, particularly with Open GL support, in the final Millennium G400 drivers.
