Matrox Parhelia to appear with 256MB/64MB on 0.13-micron chips?
New Matrox Parhelia GPU is still featured in 128MB graphics cards. In summer the company mentioned 256MB and 64MB versions, and only now this information gets some proofs. Matrox RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) section of the Canadian website mentions 256MB/64MB Parhelia cards.
You can visit Matrox RMA yourself and find 256MB (PH-A256 / PH-A256B) and 64MB (PH-A64B) products in the end of the list after 128MB cards (PH-A128B / PH-A128R).
Further information is only a rumour. Supposedly, Taiwanese UMC, contract chip maker, currently prepares for produce 0.13-micron Parhelia GPUs (the current Matrox Parhelia-512 is made using 0.15-micron process technology). Perhaps, such chips will appear within a month or two. And maybe after that new AGP 8x cards, based on these chips, will be released including mentioned versions. (Again, these are rumours from a single source only).
