Matrox Marvel G400TV

Cameron Hutchison What's the Marvel G? They use Matrox' G chip now being eclipsed by the recent Gand we are most interested in the video features, specifically from the MARVEL series and the extra hardware.


The G has special registers and functions which enable us to communicate with the rest of the hardware, namely: ZR, or ' and the G which in its turn communicates with the driver, which in its turn talks to the application, see the link" it to your soundcard to be able to record it. The Philips tuner - a simple thing, but very important: The Maven chip - it is responsible for generating TV output.

Directions already taken Our options are: But the driver is layered in its inside, too, which makes it a lot easier to "make up" a new API on it like V4L2, which is already working for TV.

Xv, also MATROX Marvel G400-TV Xvideo, is a slightly confusing description for the scaling facility inside XFree86 4. So - lemme see what other's have done!

He has stopped development on his driver because of mgavideo's good work. Still has some information and some tools. Stable drivers are available.

With regard to its hardware, G's triangle setup engine, called the "Warp Engine" ironically, was somewhat slower than the counterparts aboard the competition's cards. However, the Warp engine was programmable which MATROX Marvel G400-TV enhanced flexibility of the chip.

Unfortunately Matrox never described the functionality of this component in-depth so little is known about it. As said earlier, G suffered at launch from driver problems.

The situation was eerily similar to what MATROX Marvel G400-TV happened with the older G, with its near-total lack of credible OpenGL support. Matrox made it very clear that they were committed to supporting OpenGL, however, and development rapidly progressed.

Eventually a native OpenGL driver called "TurboGL" was released, but it was only designed to support several popular games of the time e. This driver was a MATROX Marvel G400-TV to a fully functional OpenGL ICD driver, a quick development to improve performance as fast as possible by offering an interim solution. The G continually received official driver updates into Even with initial driver difficulties, Matrox G was very competitive. Matrox tried to make stable drivers for several months but with no luck. A Matrox user going by name Adis hacked original drivers to make the card work under Windows Video capturing MATROX Marvel G400-TV possible but drivers are still based on VfW.

Hardware MJPEG capturing can be unstable but software compression, using a good video codec, gives much better results anyway. There are no WDM drivers available for this card. By shrinking the core, costs are reduced because more chips are made per wafer MATROX Marvel G400-TV the factory, and Matrox can take the time to fix earlier mistakes in the core, and trim or add new functionality. Overclocking tests showed that the core was unable to achieve higher speeds than G even though it was manufactured on a newer process.


This MATROX Marvel G400-TV that the primary monitor could run much higher resolutions and refresh rates than the secondary. This was the same as G Boards shipped with dual analog VGA connectors. A bit bus reduces the board's complexity and cost because fewer traces have to be used, and potentially the pin-count of the graphics processor can be significantly reduced if the chip is designed only for a bit bus.

The 3D capabilities of G were identical to G Unfortunately, because of the identical core clock and due to lower memory bandwidth, G was slower than G in games.
