MATROX PARHELIA 256MB PCI GRAPHICS DRIVER
This, unfortunately, proved not to be an efficient arrangement in most situations.
While the Parhelia possessed an impressive raw memory bandwidth much of it was wasted on invisible house-keeping tasks because the card Matrox Parhelia 256MB PCI Graphics the ability to predict overdraw or compress z-buffer data, among other inefficiencies. Some writers believed Parhelia to have a "crippled" triangle-setup engine that starved the rest of the chip in typical 3D rendering tasks .
Later in Parhelia's life, when DirectX 9 applications were becoming quite prevalent, Matrox acknowledged that the vertex shaders were not Shader Model 2. Presumably there were Matrox Parhelia 256MB PCI Graphics bugs within the Parhelia core that could not be worked around in the drivers. However, it was all a bit of a moot point because Parhelia's performance was not adequate to drive most DirectX 9-supporting titles well even without more complex shader code weighing the card down.

Sales[ edit ] Despite the lackluster performance for its price, Matrox hoped to win over enthusiasts with the Parhelia's unique and high quality features, such as "Surround Gaming", glyph acceleration, high resolutions, Matrox Parhelia 256MB PCI Graphics 16x fragment anti-aliasing. However, within a few months after release, the Parhelia was completely overshadowed by ATI 's far faster and fully DirectX 9. Due to their equivalent pricing against faster cards, the Parhelia never got a significant hold in the market.

It remained a niche product, while nVidia and ATI control the majority of the discrete graphics chip market. Future products[ edit ] Originally, Matrox planned to produce the "Parhelia 2" successor, codenamed "Pitou".
In JuneMatrox announced the release of M-Series video cards. Background[ edit ] The Parhelia series was Matrox 's attempt to return to the market after a long hiatus, their first significant effort since the G and G lines had become uncompetitive. Features[ edit ] The Parhelia was the first GPU by Matrox to be equipped with a bit memory bus, giving it an advantage over other cards of the time in the area of memory bandwidth. Matrox Parhelia 256MB PCI Graphics "" suffix refers to the bit ring bus.

The Parhelia processor featured Glyph acceleration, where anti-aliasing of text was accelerated by the hardware. The frame buffer is in RGBA Dual link TMDS is supported via external controller connected to the digital interface.
The "Surround Gaming" support allowed the card to drive three monitors creating a unique level gaming immersion. For example, in a flight simulator or sim racingthe middle monitor could show the windshield while the left and right monitors could display the side views offering peripheral vision.

However, only 2 displays can be controlled independently. The Parhelia was only competitive with the older Radeon and GeForce 3which typically cost half as much. However, ATI's Radeon was released later that year, with a considerably larger transistor count million vs.
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. The Matrox Parhelia PCI MB multi monitor graphics card supports dual and triple monitor setup configurations Matrox Parhelia 256MB PCI Graphics quad-buffered stereo-3D (stereoscopic).
