G450 announced

Matrox has now officially announced the G450. The G450 will be used for the first time on the Matrox G450 in the second half of the year. But since a number of graphics card companies are already expanding their product ranges with the presentation of the Nvidia GeForce 2 GTS tonight, the introduction of the G450 in the second half of the year will be decidedly too late.

But since a number of graphics card companies are already expanding their product ranges with the presentation of the Nvidia GeForce 2 GTS tonight, the introduction of the G450 in the second half of the year will be decidedly too late.
