Matrox G series, especially the Ge is still a popular choice for server motherboard manufacturers, like DELL’s PowerEdge series, due to its robustness, low power consumption and limited features needed just for VGA display. Drivers for older operating systems Windows 95, Window 3. On opening the box, you can see that the small video card is safely packaged in a huge transparent-moulded-plastic.

Drivers for older/legacy Matrox products
The Rage Pro card is the first card to fully implement the AGP 2x protocol with sideband addressing etc. This hurt G’s performance dramatically in these games and caused a lot of controversy f continuing delays and promises from Matrox.
The G receieved 4-stars all around becuase it will work without problems on a P2 system.
The AGP support is just not stable enuff! Unless otherwise indicated, HF drivers require version 1.

I have benchmarked the G in Windows98 with DirectX-6 update.
Extremely useful for more professional work. Those still using video cards based on the Riva, please do not go dump it yet as it still has plenty of life.
