Power your PC into the next Millennium
  The next revolution in graphics technology is here today. The Matrox Millennium II is specifically designed to meet the demands of the professional Windows NT user. Following the Matrox Millennium's leading position in the high performance graphics market for the past two years, Matrox has once again redefined graphics technology with the Millennium II's MGA-2164W processor.

This sixth generation of the MGA chip is a completely new design of the industry standard 64-bit graphics processor and is complemented by a fast 250 MHz DAC and powerful dual-ported WRAM memory.

The Matrox Millennium II offers superior graphics performance for the professional user, delivering acceleration in ultra high resolutions such as 1920 x 1200. Based on the MGA-2164W processor, it offers the fastest 2D acceleration, and enhanced 3D performance with fast Gouraud shading, hardware accelerated texture mapping as well as support for a 32-bit Z-buffer, to handle all graphics intensive operations under Windows NT 4.0. The MGA-2164W also integrates an enhanced video scaler with X and Y interpolation for faster, higher-quality video playback performance.
