The Millennium G550 PCIe graphics card brings the reliability, stability, and features of the proven Millennium G550 product line to PCI Express systems. The x1 design of the card makes it compatible with all compliant PCI Express slots - especially useful for systems with no available PCI Express x16 slots. In addition to having Matrox display drivers for Windows, the Millennium G550 PCIe is the world's first PCI Express graphics card with open-source display drivers for Linux and other Unix-like operating systems.
This card sucks
This review is from: matrox G55-MDDE32F G550 32MB PCI Express x1 Workstation Video Card
Pros: The name matrox. Makes you think of the perfect high end 2d cards.
Cons: Does not support wide screen resolutions, nor are the drivers in any way mature enough to be considered useful.
Other Thoughts: For a company which claims that they are somehow leading age old pioneers in the graphics card buisiness, this card is a joke. I bought it for my dad thinking it would make the perfect buisiness card for him. Well you plug the darn thing in and nothing appears on the screen. This happened on two different computers. I then took it home and tried it on my own lcd screen. Well it didn't come up again, fiddled around with it some more, and eventually something came up. Called up tech support and they told me that my OS wasn't supported. Even though this thing had problems even booting up to the darn bios screen. I will never buy a matrox card again.
