Click here to enlarge. The situation was eerily similar to what had happened with the older G, with its near-total lack of credible OpenGL support. Changing a channel displayed the channel number as well as station call sign if manually entered in the upper right side of the screen. The status bar shows current position in time red bar , already viewed recorded information yellow area and buffered video green area. Overclocking tests showed that the core was unable to achieve higher speeds than G even though it was manufactured on a newer process. There is also a timer that can be set to automatically record a specific channel at a certain time.

By shrinking the core, costs are reduced because more chips are made per wafer at the factory, and Matrox can take the time to fix earlier mistakes in the core, and trim or add new functionality. A Matrox erv chip consists of twin unidirectional buses internally, each moving data into or out of the chip.
G’s 3D engine consists of 2 parallel pixel pipelines with 1 texture unit each, providing single-pass dual-texturing capability.

The situation was eerily similar to what had happened with the older G, with its near-total lack of credible OpenGL support. This allowed for a quick glance of what was on each channel at the current time. Unfortunately Matrox never described the functionality of this component in-depth so little is known about it. It added some new features to DualHead that worked with Internet Explorer to make pages show up on both screens at once.
This feature is known as “DualHead” and was a decisive edge for Matrox over the card’s competitors at the time. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
The G is a video card made by Matroxreleased in September Like the other TV tuner solutions, starting PC-VCR brought up a wizard that marfel scanned available channels and added only those that received video. Boards shipped with dual analog VGA connectors. The chip had 3 pixel pipelines with 3 texture units each. Codenamed ” Toucan “, it was a more powerful and refined version of its predecessor, the G Also present was a picture in picture function, but we could not get this feature to work.
The status bar shows current position in time red ervalready viewed recorded information yellow area and buffered video green area.
Hardware MJPEG capturing can be unstable but software compression, using a good video codec, gives much better results anyway. This increases the efficiency and bandwidth of data flow within the chip to each of its functional units. Upon taking a snapshot, the live TV image freezes momentarily and name of the saved image is displayed over the TV.
We did encounter a crash when time shifting for an extended period of time and then attempting to run another program. Video decoding is handled by a Samsung S5DX chip which includes a closed caption decoder.

It does this by improving on the 96 constant registers specified for by DirectX 8. However, the Warp engine was programmable which theoretically enhanced flexibility of the chip.

Start time and current time are both displayed on the bar as well. Time shifting is enabled by clicking on the stopwatch icon on the on-screen remote.
This was the same as G The G continually received official driver updates into
