The Matrox G1000 will kick the crap out of Nvidia GeForce?

The G1000 is the world's FIRST DirectX 9 compliant Graphics Immersion Unit! Utilizing the eight-pipe matrox Deferred Rendering Engine, it achieves over twice the performance of any other graphics solution in it's class.
Recently a screen grab revealing the specs of G1000 appeared online at Technation. The specs are supposed to be captured from the Matrox website, where they apparently published by accident.

At The Register there is quite a bit of hype about the G1000:It destroys the Geforce 4 completely. We've seen it in action already.

Matrox is an old and respected graphics card manufacturer. Many people think that the picture (signal) quality of Matrox cards is the best available, and is favoured by people who seek good 2D-performance and maximum quality. With the G1000 Matrox seems to be re-entering to the top line of the 3D-markets and competition is usually only a positive thing for the consumers.

Yeah, that's it, but that was the article released at the same time when we and other sites ran our articles about the card. We still just have to wait until we get someone to do the actual benchmark tests for the card.

The features alone are very impressive.
