Matrox Parhelia APVe

Matrox Parhelia APVe  Image
The Parhelia APVe was a graphics card by Matrox, launched in June 2006. Built on the 150 nm process, and based on the Parhelia-512 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 8.1. It features 2 pixel shaders and 2 vertex shaders, 4 texture mapping units and 2 ROPs. Due to the lack of unified shaders you will not be able to run recent games at all (which require unified shader/DX10+ support). Matrox has placed 128 MB DDR memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 250 MHz, memory is running at 250 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, its power draw is not exactly known. Display outputs include: 2x DVI, 1x S-Video. Parhelia APVe is connected to the rest of the system using a PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. The card measures 168 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution.
