Matrox Millennium cards are not meant for gaming (weak 3D without texturing) they are for proffesional work. I appreciate drivers for 3D Studio, AutoCAD, Microstation...

Ok, that's basically my assessment: Professional cards with no real use to a guy like me regardless of memory.
I'll just consider the card a somewhat interesting oddity in my collection hoard then.
Thanks! 👍

Millennium II has texturing though.

Ok, Millennium 1 hasn't, Mil.2 has but another features like alpha blending, bilinear filtering was still missing. Here are some pictures of 3D games on Matrox...
