Matrox did what?

Posted by Keith Elder | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 03-06-2001

“I have to say this is about the coolest hardware related news for Linux in a long time. It turns out that Matrox has released a powerdesk version of their software for Linux. Users running Linux and a Matrox G200, G400, and G450 can now take full advantage of their high-end 2D/3D cards from Matrox. The official announcement can be found on their site here.

Now, Matrox Linux users can easily configure Matrox DualHead features such as Multi-Display, Clone, and TV Output, as well as make monitor adjustments to resolution settings, pixel depths, and refresh rates. With PowerDesk for Linux, users simply load this utility along with the accompanying driver and can then point and click to enable a desired feature, avoiding the errors that can occur when configuration files are entered manually.

Bottomline? A very cool move by a very cool company. Three cheers to Matrox!”
