During this year Matrox will unveil a new PCI Express graphics card:
Netsys Software, a solution provider for emerging standards, announced that Matrox Graphics has signed an agreement to license nSys PCI Express nVS verification tools for use in its chip design efforts. Matrox engineers are now using PCI Express nVS product to verify the correct operation of the PCI Express interface in its chip designs. The tool helps Matrox engineers catch potential bugs during pre-silicon verification.
“PCI Express is a key technology for our next-generation Graphics offering and we have developed a very sophisticated verification environment to ensure the quality of this new interface,” said David Chiappini, ASIC Project Director at Matrox.
To address the market of Windows Longhorn computers, Matrox Graphics will not only have to add PCI Express x16 into its products just in order to create solutions compliant with tomorrow’s personal computers, but will also have to incorporate hardware Pixel Shader 2.0 to be fully compliant with the upcoming operating system.
