Matrox announces PCI Express x1 graphics card
Matrox has announced
a PCI Express x1 version of its Millennium G550 graphics card. Based on a G550 graphics core that's nearly four years old, the card doesn't offer much in the way of 3D horsepower. However, with dual DVI outputs, it could be an interesting solution for those looking to add a couple of extra displays.
The Millennium G550 PCIe will be available in August for $139, which is rather expensive for a card with such a dated graphics core. Parhelia would have been a better choice, especially considering that Microsoft's next Windows user interface will require more extensive pixel-pushing capabilities.
