Review : Matrox Parhelia

Viper's Lair has reviewed the Matrox Parhelia :
The Parhelia core features over 80 million transistors based on 0.15u technology, this is only eciplsed by the recently released Radeon 9700 card from ATi with over 100 million transistors. The OEM model of the Parhelia comes with a 200MHz core and 250MHz (500MHz DDR) memory. If we look at the memory we see that it is rated for 3.3ns, or is able to run at approximately 300MHz (the product corresponding to that part number can be found here) which leaves room for, overclocking perhaps? Will the low clock speed of this card cause it any problems in our benchmark's, we will find out.
