Matrox Parhelia

3 April 2003
  • Summary: Though it's not as fast as the latest Nvidia graphics card, the Parhelia's decent clip and three-display-surround gaming make it a compelling option for gaming gourmands.
  • Pros: Fast 16X-antialiased 3D performance; peerless 2D performance; 10-bit color with billions of hues; excellent visual quality; three-display-surround gaming.
  • Cons: Not as fast as Nvidia's best offering; control panel requires installing Microsoft's .Net; compatible with only Windows 2000 and XP.

Matrox Parhelia 128mb Review

6 March 2003
  • 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
