Matrox P650 vs. Radeon 9700 on tv-out quality/options

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Jukka Andersson, Sep 25, 2003.

  1. Greetings,
    I am getting new videocard after crashing G400 of mine.
    Thinking about Radeon but also Matrox because I know
    videoquality (tv-out) and driver quality in Matrox to be very good.
    Also Philips (?) videochip Matrox uses is very good.

    Radeon uses (?) its own Rage Theater chip to provide output image
    and after fast review there is less features in their drivers. But it seems
    to work ok in Theaer mode (I use Premiere, Nuendo and other softwares
    that supports overlay videoimage to be played on videomonitor).

    But is there people who have used these cards and have something to say,
    I did not manage to get control over Radeon's overlay adjustments on
    videoscreen -
    it seems to work in VGA but not in video.

    I havent tried P650 since I know it should work at least as well that G400
    did before.
    I used DVDmax feature on G400, is this got any better in P650?

    thanks,
    Jukka Andersson
