Matrox said that it will release PCI Express products in Q4 2004 or later.
“We do intend on releasing products that will fit the PCI Express architecture, but it likely will not be until the end of Q4 [2004] at the earliest. Keep checking our site regularly to see which product lines will be announced to support PCI Express,” said Shawn Black, Inbound Sales Representative, Matrox Graphics.

In early 2004 Matrox Graphics acquired a license to use nSys PCI Express nVS verification tools for use in its chip design efforts from Netsys Software. Matrox engineers have been using PCI Express nVS product to verify the correct operation of the PCI Express interface in its chip designs since then. The tool is intended to help Matrox Graphics’ engineers to catch potential bugs during pre-silicon verification.

In late 2003 representatives for Matrox Graphics said a “new product” was slated to release in 2004.
