Have you already forgotten about a company called Matrox Graphics? Well, you should not do that since despite of the fact that its market share is below 1%, the firm is still alive and kicking. According to a report from a web-site, the company will unleash a couple of new graphics cards based on the Parhelia graphics processor next week.
The newcomers will be based on the Parhelia-LX chips and will be mostly intended for CAD,
Matrox Graphics will offer Matrox Millennium P650 graphics cards with 64MB of memory and DualHead support for 169 Euro, while Millenium P750 with TripleHead support will cost 235 Euro. Both graphics cards will feature 128-bit memory bus and will be typically slower than the original Parhelia 512 in 3D applications.
The products will be officially announced on the 23rd of April this year and will be available in the second quarter 2003, according to this Dutch web-site.
