In general, compared to its peers, the Matrox Mystique was a competent board with its own set of advantages and disadvantages as was typical in this era of early 3D accelerators. The original Mystique was introduced in , with the slightly upgraded Mystique having been released in It probably just fakes the feature so that games demanding it will run. The real fight for 3d gamer begun with Mystique in and Matrox kept on releasing newer versions until summer Besides the ramdac Mystique also integrates video engine with hardware scaler.

Detractors, however, referred to the card matfox the “Matrox Mystake”. Beta drivers are not supported by Matrox Graphics Technical Support. With early Matrox 3d cards things are not so simple if you are looking for maximum. NET Framework is required.
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. Using unvibe causes the screen to go out of range with jatrox picture on the ARK chipset. Gouraud shading and Z-comparisons. I think I read that the VGA core on the is only bit. Some drivers in this section are zipped using the -RP option.
More resolution t220 may be available, please call or contact pid matrox. Mystique was Matrox’s most feature-rich 3D accelerator inbut still lacked key features including bilinear filteringfoggingand anti-aliasing support.
There is a German wiki page, but it doesn’t tell me much. Next chip in the line was Athena, powering the first Impression boards.
The card got binned, because one day the card just smoked up out-of-the-blue. With my Mystique used for testing I could set the tightest timings even at top clocks: I did run full suite on the slowest board, but there are no surprises.
Unlike Millennium these boards had friendly pricing and still good GUI performance as one would expect from Matrox. But strange things happened with SG, after base clock the benchmark results were not improving anymore, like if the board denied to be clocked higher. But most of Direct3d games could use it, especially big low resolution textures like skies looks horrible unfiltered. Overall feel is closer to console like Playstation rather than other PC 3d graphics.
Mystique has DAC integrated to the core and plain synchronous memory interface to reduce board complexity and costs much below expensive Millennium.
VOGONS • View topic – Ark Logic PCI, an interesting VGA card.
Its 2D support rivaled the best cards available for performance and quality, however. You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post. I’m using the Diamond Stealth64 in my The retail version of Mystique included 3 3D game titles, including: This version doesn’t support TV output. Unless otherwise indicated, HF drivers require version 1. Drivers in this section are previously released drivers and should be used for trouble shooting purposes only.
