Matrox Parhelia 128MB

PC Magazine
21 May 2003
  • Excerpt: Matrox Graphics sat out the last several 3-D shootouts, concentrating instead on its multihead display technologies (where one card powers several monitors); these have done well in the corporate and financial markets. With the release of the Matrox Parhelia 128MB earlier this year, the company has returned to the race, offering a 3-D graphics card that distinguishes itself more by its feature set than by raw performance.

Matrox Parhelia 128mb Review

Digitaltrends

  • Excerpt: Often it seems that ATI and NVIDIA are only trying to capture the gaming market and have forgotten that professionals need high-end performance too. This card retails for $400. It may be a bit of sticker shock, but the Parhelia does provide superior performance for the business users while sacrificing none of the technology that makes this card an industry leader. Feature for Dollar, the Parhelia provides the best of high-end graphics for the business professional.
  • Pros: Perfect for auto cad and dual display setups
  • Cons: No AGP 8x support, average gaming performance

Matrox Parhelia Review

  • Conclusion: Matrox say they are refocusing Parhelia on the workstation market, which will probably make good use of the multi-monitor options; however, does this rule it out for the consumer market? If you are a high end gamer then it's unquestionable that you'd be looking at either the Radeon 9700 PRO or the upcoming GeForce FX for pure performance and future features.

  • Summary: So, there you have it. My main motivation for doing this article was to show you a side of this product that may not have hit home with some of the earlier reviews. I never went out and bought this card thinking I would end up doing a review, but I felt compelled to do it after seeing all the cool things this card is capable of doing.

  • Excerpt: Matrox oli pitkään johtava laatunäytönohjainten valmistaja. Kuvanlaatu oli loistava, yli vertainen muihin merkkeihin verrattuna. Samoin hinta. nVidia ja Ati ovat kuroneet laadullisen välimatkan lähes kiinni ja nopeudessa, varsinkin DirectX, ovat paljon edellä. Onko Parheliasta, Matroxin lippulaivasta, puolustamaan menneiden aikojan kunniaa?

  • Summary: Die Technischen Daten des Chips waren sehr beeindruckend und weckten unser Interesse die Matrox Parhelia zu testen. Unsere anfängliche Begeisterung schlug sehr schnell in Ernüchterung um, als wir die Packung öffneten und die sehr magere Ausstattung sahen. Was man Matrox auf jeden Fall bescheinigen kann, ist die sehr gute 2 D/3D Bildsignalqualität.
