With only half of Parhelia’s 3D graphics power, the P definitely isn’t targeted at high-end 3D workstations or gaming machines. The P has the same pixel pipelines with quad texturing units per pipe, five-stage pixel shaders, and DirectX 9-class vertex shaders as Parhelia, but only half as many of each. Views Read Edit View history. Clock for clock, the Millennium P should be roughly half as fast as Parhelia, whose core and memory clock speeds are MHz and MHz, respectively. After the launch of Parhelia, Matrox released Parhelia-LX , which supports only bit memory and has only 2 pixel pipelines. The P probably won’t offer much in the way of gaming performance, but a high-quality TV output could make the card attractive for those looking to put together media-centric PCs.

Clock for clock, the Millennium P should be roughly half as fast as Parhelia, whose core and memory clock speeds are MHz and MHz, respectively. Well, OK, it’s a metal cap. Matrox also supplies a number of “certified” drivers for various CAD and 3D applications, but the P has certified drivers for p7550 fewer applications than Parhelia.
Much has changed, however, in the four years since the G Max’s release. The P has two pixel pipes, two pixel shaders, and two vertex shaders. No Interruptions Day Shortbread.

The “Surround Gaming” support allowed the card to drive three monitors creating a unique level matorx immersion. LG HU85L projector needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture.
Graphics Previous page Next page. Since TripleHead only supports three monitors via a stretched desktop, it’s completely incompatible with GigaColor.
Parhelia has a bit memory bus and is available with MB or MB of memory. Views Read Edit View history.
Retrieved from ” https: In this case it was the ATI Radeonreleased only a few months later. The P’s edge-only fragment antialiasing works at a 16X sample size that all but eliminates jaggies. Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff!
mkllenium Dual link TMDS is supported via external controller connected to the digital interface. However, the prospect of getting Parhelia’s features at a more reasonable price should be quite tempting for businesses and multimonitor enthusiasts.
This, unfortunately, proved not to be an efficient arrangement in most situations. In bit GigaColor mode, Matrox scales back alpha channel precision from eight to two bits.
Matrox’s web site also provides links to a number of third-party drivers for alternative operating systems. The P GPU is cooled by a tiny active heat sink. Standard bit color, which has 8 bits of precision per color channel, yields a comparatively unimpressive shades of red, green, and blue for only Steam names the best-selling games of GigaColor’s 10 bits of precision per color channel yields shades of red, green, and blue each that can be mixed and matched to produce over one billion colors.
However, Matrox won’t divulge the Millennium P’s core or memory clock speeds, which makes handicapping the card’s real-world performance more difficult.
Digital video editing workstations are another target for the P Graphics Previous page Next page. We don’t always buy into clever market segmentation arguments, but we are aware that they sometimes make good sense. The card’s fillrate performance was formidable in games that used many texture layers; though equipped with just 4 pixel pipelines, each had 4 texture units. Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing In total, Parhelia has four pixel pipelines, four pixel shaders, and four vertex shaders.
