Is the card overclocked with those 160/166Mhz settings?


Nope. The card was running stock clocks. Here are some pics of the card https://imgur.com/a/jR9lfNo

Looks like it´s even faster than the Savage 4 Extreme. Rare card.

I really need to try the 5.55 drivers. Turbo GL seems to help Quake 3 performance. Interesting to see that the G400 Max is faster than the TNT2 Ultra with bilinear filtering and 32bit on Quake 3.

Very good fps for the GF256 SDR. Can you do another benchmark with Trilinear filtering enabled?
My V5 5500 on a PIII Coop 866Mhz scored only 51.7fps @1024x768 with Trilinear filtering on, and the TNT2 Ultra is scoring 31fps in the same machine and same settings.
I always thought the V5 5500 is faster than GF256 SDR and the TNT2 Ultra was only 30% slower than GF256 SDR.


I can run more tests once I'm done with the G400. From what I remember the Geforce got about 55fps with trilinear. Keep in mind this version of Q3 defaults to s3tc enabled, that probably makes a difference (for the SDR version at least). New versions of Q3 seem to default to disabled.

In the mean time, i will test the GF256 DDR to see if it´s considerably faster than the SDR version.

Is the 1.3 TurboGL included in the 5.55 driver? Is that the final driver with TurboGL? How does the TurboGL installation process work - do you just install the driver and that's it?

I will replace a GF2MX PCı with G450 PCI tonight, so I wanted to know. I tried the OpenGL ICD drivers earlier and gaming performance left a lot to be desired, they seem to have been coded with applications in mind, or something.

Matrox dropped support for the TGL before the G450 released and wasn't supported with the 6xx drivers. The newest TGL does have its own installer (some of the 5xx drivers do come with a version of the TGL) and will not install with the 6xx drivers. I tried it anyways with some of the 6xx drivers by installing it with an older driver and then just keeping the opengl32.dll file. Anyways, it does work with the 603 drivers and I tried it on the G450 AGP. The performance was very good on the G400max but on the G450 it was slower than the ICD. I didn't try it on the G450 PCI though, so who knows. One thing I need to do is test different drivers on the G450PCI, to see if maybe some of the older ones run quake2 better.

I added the TGL file for the Pentium 3. There is a different version for the K6, Athlon and Pentium 2 also.

A G450 ICD driver that has no issues with Quake 2 would be very interesting for me..

Do you suggest installing 555 drivers with the already supplied TurboGL driver? Can i intall the TurboGL file you atached on top of 555 driver version?

I don't think the 555 drivers have a TGL included (the 530 and 541 do though). The 1.3 TGL has its own installer. You can get the TGL here https://www.matrox.com/graphics/en/support/drivers/previous/display2/#OpenGL

Ok then. What driver version do you recommend for the G400 series in W9x? And needs to be TGL 1.3 compatible.
