Ik las net bij M.U.R.C. dat je nu ook de Marvel G400 (hun alles in een oplossing voor video editing) kan bestellen in de online shop van Matrox. Verder info erover ontbreekt nog. Verder zijn ze nog steeds bezig met het optimaliseren van hun OpenGL ICD (en dat mag ook wel):
One online store at least is a little optimistic about the release of the Marvel G400 and is offering the following:
AGP MATROX G400 MARVEL 32MB $349.99
Don't go pre-ordering a Marvel G400 just yet as you may be in for quite a long wait. Thanks to Charles Johnston for that one.
G400 ICD Performance
Those of you that have been loitering around the forums may have noticed talk of the upcoming 5.2x PowerDesk series and how they are to see substantial improvements in speed to the G400 OpenGL ICD. Voodooextreme have come up with the first snippet of figures for these soon to be released drivers.
The guys at MaximumPC fired off an email to let us know that they have put some information/benchmarks on a new OpenGL ICD for the Matrox G400 MAX. Dig it:
Matrox just released a new OpenGL ICD for the G400 that speeds things up a bit--the Quake II timedemo (at 1024x768) shot up from 61.9fps to 70.7fps. Unfortunately Half-Life performance didn't get as much as a boost. The G400 just doesn't do Half-Life very well mainly because the game uses so many textures.
I am, however, very encouraged by the progress Matrox has made in the past month in optimizing their OpenGL ICD. I think they've learned from the whole G200 debacle and have a highly capable team in place that will continually improve OpenGL performance
