Tom Pabst's review of the Matrox Parhelia is a sad testament to matrox's inability to keep up with the times... In every test, not only did the Geforce4 4600 (priced 10 dollars lower) win the performance crown, it also won the quality crown, the antialiasing speed crown (fragment AA in the matrox only AAed very little, and only looked any good in Quake3), and the anistropic filtering speed crown (performing slightly better, with 64tap filtering compared to 32bit filtering.). I'm sorry, but the matrox was just over hyped, and won't magically jump 2000 points in 3dmark to overtake the Ge4 4600 in 4x/4xfragment +64tap/32tap anio filtering. I'd rather buy a radeon 8500 than this, it's about 1.5 times faster with the same quality settings. Boo matrox!
