Matrox Users heeft een aantal vage geruchten opgepikt over de aanwezigheid van T&L logica in de G200 en G400:
t's a rumour time, so here are some: The current Matrox chips, strarting with G200 are theoretically capable of hardware transformation and lighting (T&L). Since for many people the "hardware T&L" is a buzzword regardless of the actual results, this capability of Matrox chips should be considered important, at least from marketing viewpoint. While it doesn't make to much sense to force the G200 to do T&L, this may probably be done to G4xx line chips. It's all in drivers though, and the programmers may or may not use the capability depending on what they consider to be better/faster solution (trust them, they were wrong so many times
). So, if you have a G400-based card, you already have (unused) hardware T&L. You feel happier, dear Matrox owner, don't you?... [break] Klinkt mij nogal wazig en onwaarschijnlijk in de orden. Verder bij MURC meer info over de Matrox G450, waarvan het bestaan als eerste in deze nieuwsposting werd opgemerkt: [/break] As you may have seen elsewhere there will be a new board called the Matrox G450, supposedly it will be a .18 micron chip, what it will be is a full AGP 4X device, and a get this it will have transform and lighting support in hardware. One of the things I was told way back about the G400 chip was that it had a modular design allowing extras to be bolted on at a later date, well it seems then that T&L is getting bolted on. I must stress none of this info is from Matrox so could be totally wrong but I've just noticed over on the MatroX Files (they do have inside info) the following that kind of backs up what I've been saying don't you think?
