It gives rumours that Matrox will develop an dx10 card by itself. - what you not say! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.14.208.18 (talk) 14:55, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Matrox Logo.svg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Matrox Logo.svg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

MGA and MGI[edit]

What to "MGA" and "MGI" in the names of Matrox products stand for? Drutt (talk) 13:30, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

(I realize this is a 6-year-old question, but as it remains unanswered...)
"MGA" was the "Matrox Graphics Accelerator" GPU, the 64-bit brain which powered Matrox's early cards.
"MGI" I believe is just one of the acronyms used for Matrox Graphics (International? Incorporated?), the graphics division of Matrox itself — much like Silicon Graphics was also known as "SGI". -- FeRD_NYC (talk) 01:05, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

Inaccuracies in History section.[edit]

There are several inaccurate facts in the history section; i.e. : The Impression cards were not 3D add-on cards for the Millennium card; the Impression Cards (Lite and Plus version) were successors to the Ultima cards and are the predecessors to the Millennium serie. There were no new “Impression” cards between the 2064 (Matrox Millennium) and 2164 (Matrox Millennium II).

Also, the whole section appears to have a negative view instead of having an “encyclopaedic” approach; Section needs reviewing —Preceding unsigned comment added by 198.235.31.250 (talk) 18:34, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

True, lots of inaccuracies. The 3D add-in card was the m3d, based on a PowerVR chip; the Impression was an early 1990's regular display card. Contrary to the implications, Matrox was a player in the 3D market through the G400 Max, a highly desirable card in its day. For a while (ca 1999), the G400 Max was king of the hill. Prior to that, the original Matrox Millennium (2064) was highly desired in its day (ca 1995). The criticism only applies much later (post 2000), and the somewhat overrated 2002 introduction of the Parhelia as a card also suitable for gaming. I'll try to fix the article later. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 4.131.129.203 (talk) 11:31, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

  • Those inaccuracies still arent fixed, btw... Fig (talk) 13:49, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

M-series[edit]

No information on the current M-series. M9188 supports 8 miniDP outputs - maybe uses a 2 chip (4 outputs) or 1 chip (4 outputs) + 4 output switches (for total of 8 outputs)? Alinor (talk) 13:14, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

And there isn't likely to ever be information on Matrox's M-series cards here, as this is an encyclopedia, not a Matrox product catalog. Those cards certainly aren't notable. -- FeRD_NYC (talk) 04:25, 17 September 2016 (UTC)
