Matrox readies PCI-E Parhelia
Last week Matrox quietly announced
the Parhelia APVe, bringing the company's two and a half year old graphics technology to PCI Express. The Parhelia APVe will be available in the first quarter of next year and sell for $350not cheap considering that Parhelia sold for $400 when it was released more than two years ago. With dual DVI graphics cards becoming increasingly common and NVIDIA's excellent nView multimonitor software rivaling Matrox's PowerDesk, there may not be much of a niche left for Parhelia.
