Matrox will be showing it graphics cards (and selling them at a discounted price!) at the Bentley Systems 2004 BE Conference May 23-26.

What's happening: Matrox Graphics will be showcasing products from its family of professional graphics cards for CAD and GIS at Bentley Systems' 2004 BE Conference. These products include the Millennium P650, running Bentley MicroStation V8 2004 in DualHead, and the Parhelia 128MB, powering systems running other certified applications such as Bentley Enterprise Navigator and ESRI ArcInfo across three displays.

Matrox will be selling both the Millennium P650 (US $169) and Parhelia 128 MB (US $399) from its booth at a special show discount of 15% off.

When: Sunday, May 23rd: 2 p.m. - 9 p.m.

Featuring advanced DualHead capabilities, 64 MB of memory, and AGP 8X technology, Matrox Millennium P-Series graphics cards, including the Millennium P650 and Millennium P750, are ideal upgrade options for Matrox Millennium G-Series users, providing greater functionality for AEC and entry-level MCAD workstations.

The Matrox Parhelia Series, equipped with 128 MB or 256 MB of memory and available in both AGP and PCI formats, offers the most flexible display configurations in the industry. For the CAD and GIS professional, it provides Surround Design-hardware accelerated 2D and/or 3D on one, two, or three displays-ideal for spreading out application windows that would otherwise need to be overlapped or minimized on a single display. With it, an engineer can visualize the architectural drawing of a specific floor on one display, while inspecting the floor's electrical and lighting plans on the others, for example. The ability to run separate applications at the same time, or a single application stretched across multiple displays, greatly reduces the need for scrolling and window switching-tasks that significantly reduce productivity and ease of use.

Delivering rock-solid stability, Millennium P-Series and Parhelia Series graphics cards have unified and certified drivers that have gone through Matrox's leading comprehensive certification process, which puts computer-aided design (CAD) and geographic information systems (GIS) workstation drivers through stringent testing in order to ensure full compatibility and exceptional performance. Additionally, as with all Matrox graphics cards, they are backed by a three-year warranty and specialized product support teams worldwide.
