It probably just fakes the feature so that games demanding it will run. Archived from the original on Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux? Its 2D support rivaled the best cards available for performance and quality, however. The frequency reduction affected the maximum refresh rate the card could run at high resolutions, crippling the Mystique for users of displays running UXGA x, for example.

Limited feature set prevents quite a few games from working properly or at all on the Mystique. If you’d like to contribute content, let us know.

Matrox Mystique – Wikipedia

In cases where “available with OS” is stated, the operating system will install a Matrox driver that will give you basic 2D and 3D functionality, where this driver is supported by Microsoft.

Beta drivers are not supported by Matrox Graphics Technical Support.

Matrox Mystique and XFree First Millennium is specified as 50 MHz but 60 is a more common clock. It’s popular topic, but I haven’t been able to find a good lead on this one.


XFRee 86 Video Driver, version 0. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. NET Framework, even if version 2.


Driver support for the Mystique was robust at launch. The answer to these limitations, and Matrox’s first attempt at targeting the consumer gaming PC market, would be the Matrox Mystique. Including bilinear filtering would have incurred a significant cost in the chip’s transistor budget for more computational resources and potentially reduce graphics core clock speed and performance katrox to a larger chip design.

In the late Matrox released Impression Plus board, able to theoretically render k Gouraud mystiquw polygons per second. With both of my boards I did not find memory clock to be very limiting. But most of Direct3d games could use it, especially big low resolution textures like skies looks horrible unfiltered.

The 8 MB configuration used the memory expansion module. Archived copy as title Webarchive template wayback links. Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux? Matrox had been known for years as a significant player in the mystiqud 2D graphics accelerator market. Millennium’s engine is exposed to Direct3d, but I don’t know any titles except Turok which would not require texturing. The company’s reasoning for not including the higher-quality features was that performance was more important than visual quality.

The time now is Overall feel is closer to console like Playstation rather than other PC 3d graphics.

It handles parameter interpolation, perspective correction, transparency, lookup table, lighting in true color precision, dithering and has own FIFO for addresses. Mystique also had various ports on linus card for memory expansion and additional hardware peripherals.

High price, weak DOS performance and very limited 3d functionality ensured little popularity of Impression.
