Bij iXBT Labs vonden ze het nog wel een goed plan om een review te posten van de Matrox G400 Max. Volledig in traditie is het weer een uitgebreide lap tekst geworden, die je hier kunt vinden. Hieronder vast een hap uit de test:
So, what can be concluded judging by the following results? First, in 3D Mark99 MAX our graphics card Matrox Millennium G400 MAX performed close to the level of NVIDIA Riva TNT2 Ultra having left 3dfx Voodoo3 3500TV far behind. At 1600x1200 in 16-bit color depth the results seemed to us somewhat strange, however, we have to admit that even the test itself behaves not quite adequately and if repeated the test can show a 50-70% error that is why we provide these results just for you to have an idea of what there can actually be. But in 32-bit color the same test was an absolute success and our graphics card proved just perfect!
In Shogo Matrox Millennium G400 MAX surpassed 3dfx voodoo3 3500TV and remained on the same level with NVIDIA Riva TNT2 Ultra.
But in Expendable the picture quickly changed. At higher resolutions (over 1024x768) Matrox Millennium G400 MAX performed much better than NVIDIA Riva TNT2 Ultra, however, still lost a few points in the competition with 3dfx Voodoo3 3500TV (probably because of a more 3dfx cards friendly multitexturing regime). The way the card's performance depends on the processor frequency gives us every evidence that those who have not very powerful CPUs should better refrain from buying such a cool graphics card. If the performance does not exceed 34, and in some cases even 28fps, you may surely decide on a cheaper graphics card, which will nevertheless provide almost the same performance rates. With the enabled Environment mapped Bump mapping the performance drops not too tragically for us to give up this beauty, but still rather tangibly.
