Matrox to Power Gigabyte Video Cards
Taiwan-based video-card maker signs Matrox's G400 as the power for its next board.
Taiwanese hardware manufacturer Gigabyte will be using the Matrox G400 chipset to power one of its upcoming video cards.
Although both companies haven't made an official statement, Gigabyte will be using the Matrox G400 to power its GA-MG400 video card. Considering that Matrox designs and manufactures its own chipsets and video cards (and considers Gigabyte to be a potential competitor), this revelation comes as somewhat of a surprise.
The GA-MG400 will ship in both 16MB and 32MB configurations and come with most of the bells and whistles found on Matrox's own G400 cards. Notably missing from the GA-MG400, however, is the DualHead feature that Matrox has been highly touting. DualHead lets users connect two different computer monitors or television screens to one G400 board for flexibility in desktop and gaming applications.
Matrox is expected to make some sort of announcement regarding Gigabyte in the coming weeks, possibly as soon as Comdex. In the meantime, you can take a look at the GA-MG400's specifications on the link to the right.
