Matrox Unleashing A Beast of a Card
The other day I made a post here asking for input on a video card to upgrade my aging Matrox G400. I think I am going to stick with Matrox because I like their Dual Head technology and the ability to stretch my desktop over two monitors (including the task bar).
Today, there is news of Matrox releasing a new PCI Express card dubbed the Millenium.
Pitched at content creators, the card provides a pair of 10-bit, 400MHz RAMDACs feeding twin DVI ports and dual RGB outputs. With 128MB of RAM on board, the card can drive two screens at resolutions of up to 1920 x 1440, Matrox said, or 1920 x 1220 for digital flat panels.
That is some powerful stuff there. In addition to all that horsepower, the card is going to have some great display features built-in.
The P650 PCIe 128 also features advanced image quality and video settings, including Matrox’s UltraSharp Display Output technology, independent gamma correction support for both displays and adjustable proc-amp controls for hue, saturation, contrast and brightness.
The card is expected to be released in April and sell for about $250.
