Drivers in this section are previously released drivers and should be used for v450 shooting purposes only. Like the Parhelia, these boards have no driver support for Windows 9x. This was attributed both to its architecture and to the poor drivers it relied on for much of its life especially OpenGL ICD.

The situation was eerily similar to what had happened with the older G, with its opengk lack of credible OpenGL support.
It does not support hardware texture mapping.
Companies that we once anticipated graphics chipsets from have been more than just quiet over the past year. Ohwell, guess I need to make sure and use better hardware. This driver supports TV Out and is 2D only. The G was supposed to be released in May with retail availability in June; it is now September and the G is finally here.

The image is crisp, has fine colors. A later version increased clock speeds but also eliminated AGP 2x 3. The DualHead capability not only offered desktop widening but also desktop cloning two screens showing the same thing and a special “DVDMAX” mode which outputs video overlays onto the second monitor.
However, apart from higher resolutions, upgrading memory did not make much difference. This driver is 2D only and does not support TV Out. In early the final OpenGL driver was ready.
