"The first 3D Accelerated-X graphics support software package for a Matrox graphics card has been released by Xi Graphics Inc., a Denver company that specializes in premium graphics support software for Linux and UNIX(R) systems. The 3D Linux Graphics Driver (LGD) is downloadable through Xi Graphics' Web site at www.xig.com."

"The DualHead feature on the card has proved quite popular with our Accelerated-X customers, who until now could only run DualHead in 2D," said David H. Methvin, Xi Graphics' president and CEO. "The Matrox G400 also is an exceptionally fast card in 2D performance, racking up over 105 Xmarks at eight bit color depth; until this card, our record was about 80 Xmarks. The 3D performance is especially good for games."

"Matrox's DualHead Display feature allows the user to split the display buffer, with half on one screen and half on the other screen, providing essentially a Single Logical Screen capability with the two screens. The LGD released this week supports the 32MB model of the G400. Support for the 16MB variant is expected to be ready soon. The LGD released this week supports the 32MB model of the G400.
