Bij FiringSquad hebben ze een artikel gedumpt over Matrox's coole DualHead feature op de G400. Je zult vertelt staan voor hoeveel dingen je deze functie kan gebruiken. Hieronder een klein gedeelte, meer vind je hier.
The benefits of dual monitors are more obvious when using graphics programs like Photoshop or spreadsheet programs. Graphic artists often need to work with gigantic sized pictures. With dual monitors, you don't need to scroll around as much. Simply stretch the window out over both monitors and you've got a super wide canvas on which to work! Are you sick of those toolbars and palettes getting in the way of your image? Drag those over to your dumping off point, the secondary display. Now you've got an unobstructed view of your images. The same ideas can be applied to spreadsheets. Accountants often have to work with large files with many columns. Drag the spreadsheet window to cover both displays and all of a sudden you can see twice as many columns as before. Don't work with spreadsheets? Well everyone uses email - drag your mail application across both screens and view multiple mailboxes all at the same time! [break]Verder hebben ze ook wat benchmarks gepost van de nieuwe TurboGL driver van Matrox. Deze nieuwe ICD geeft een asociale performance boost mits je een P3 of Athlon systeem hebt:[/break] The performance gain from TurboGL is nothing short of eye popping - my personal system with a P3 450, 128MB of RAM, and a vanilla G400 jumped from 53 fps to 76 fps in Quake 3, after installing TurboGL drivers. And you can see how a P3 600 jumped up about 50% in framerate at the lower resolutions where G400 was lagging behind before. The comparison tests show G400 series cards actually blowing the doors off the competition! The numbers speak for themselves - until the GeForces and Savage 2000s arrive, the G400 Max looks like it's the card to beat if you run a P3 or Athlon system. Not only are you getting Matrox's superior image quality in 2D and 3D, but you're also getting great 3D framerate in OpenGL now, and the luxury of bump mapping and DualHead. Have your cake and eat it too!
