Matrox unveils industry's smallest DualHead graphics card Millennium P650 Low-profile PCI enables multi-display setups from laptop docking stations and is ideal for small form factor PCs.

Matrox Graphics Inc., a manufacturer of professional graphics solutions, announced the Matrox Millennium P650 Low-profile PCI, further expanding its family of productivity-enhancing graphics cards for CAD and GIS workstations.

Ideal for CAD and GIS professionals who gather information in the field on laptops and have a great deal of data to work with once back in the office, the Millennium P650 Low-profile PCI provides tangible productivity gains with its advanced dual-RGB and dual-DVI capabilities from laptop docking stations. Running applications such as Bentley MicroStation, Autodesk AutoCAD and ESRI ArcView in a multi-display environment increases efficiency, as 2D and 3D information can be seen at once, data can be more easily compared and less panning and zooming is required, for example. Powerful and versatile, this card provides support for both low-profile and ATX systems and its compact 5.2-inch long board design also makes it an excellent solution for small form factor PCs.

The industry's smallest DualHead® card, the Millennium P650 Low-profile PCI is equipped with 64 MB of DDR memory and provides exceptionally high-quality digital and analog output with fully symmetric support for dual digital flat panels, at resolutions of up to 1920 x 1200(1), as well as for dual analog displays, at resolutions of up to 1920 x 1440.

The Millennium P650 Low-profile PCI is based on the Parhelia-LX chip, derived from Matrox Parhelia technology. This chip supports a 64 MB frame buffer and a 128-bit DDR memory interface, and is OpenGL and Microsoft DirectX compliant across multiple displays.

The Millennium P650 Low-profile PCI will be available in Q3 2004 from various resellers and directly from Matrox online.
