Matrox Graphics announces new graphics accelerator for high-resolution imagery

Matrox Graphics Inc., the manufacturer of professional graphics solutions, announced the Parhelia HR256 graphics card, providing optimal support for video, 2D and 3D graphics on high-resolution, multi-input digital displays, such as the 9 mega pixel (MP) IBM T221, Iiyama AQU5611DTBK and ViewSonic VP2290b. “The Parhelia HR256 has been expressly designed for multi-input panels such as the IBM T221 and therefore the design of the graphics card enables the T221 to perform at its highest refresh rate,” says David Nypaver, director, LCD Monitors, IBM eServer Workstations. For use in any standard desktop workstation, the Matrox Parhelia HR256 is the ideal graphics accelerator for professionals using high-resolution digital flat panels for the analysis of detailed imagery and large models in industries such as mapping/satellite reconnaissance, space exploration, CAD, video post production, desktop publishing, life sciences, aerospace and automotive visualization, medical training/reference, transportation and logistics, oil and gas exploration, plant design and management, and digital photography.

The Matrox Parhelia HR256 is the graphics card that features a quad single-link DVI interface, enabling both a quad DVI and dual LFH-60 direct connection, with no adaptors, ensuring pristine image quality and providing support for exceptionally high resolutions, such as 3840 x 2400, and optimal screen refresh rates. For an extended workspace across additional monitors, or for specialized work environments, this distinctive graphics card can be run alongside other Matrox graphics cards in the same system. Featuring 256MB of onboard DDR unified memory and a PCI interface with support for 33 MHz and 66 MHz buses, the Parhelia HR256 currently offers full support for Microsoft Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
