Will Diamond Monster 3D work with Matrox Millenium?

I just bought a system from Quantex Microsystems. It came standard with the Matrox Millenium w/4mb. I want to get a Diamond Monster 3D graphics accerlerator. Are they compatable?

Hi,

Yes, the two cards are compatible.  The millenium does have 3D features itself which you might want to consider before laying out for the 3D board - take a look at:

http://www.matrox.com/mgaweb/techsupp/game_faq.htm

for an explanation. Details of the extra features of the Diamond board can be found at:

Basically, the millenium does: Flat shading, Gouraud Shading, Rendering and  Z-Buffering.  It doesn't do texture mapping.

Hope this helps
