Matrox made a TON of products. I think the Extreme graphics
board set for an SGI Indigo2 is made by / has a ton of Matrox
chips on it, if nothing else - noticed this last time I dissasembled
an I2 for cleaning.
I really wish that Matrox would put out a good board that did
their great 2D (one of the things I like best about them) while
at the same time having good 3D performance as well. I recently
replaced a 16meg G450 AGP dual-head card with a generic GeForce 2MX
dual-head (altho I only have one monitor), and the performance
difference in OpenGL applications is *astounding*.
G450 is perfect for 2D and application-level GL, but for game openGL
apps, its amazing how much ass the GF2MX kicks. Especially considering
that the MX costs around $75-85 street price, nowdays.
