Matrox SG3 and SPARCstation 5?

Discussion in 'Sun Hardware' started by Ingo Soetebier, Nov 20, 2011.

  1. Hello!

    I have a Matrox SG3 graphics board. Does it work in a SPARCstation 5?
    The SS5 runs Solaris 2.6. Does this version support the graphics board?
    I have also a TurboXGX graphics board, which looks really tiny besides
    a Matrox SG3. Which one is more powerful?
    Thanks for your help!

  2. It would probably fit in, but one note I found around said that the
    last driver support for the this frame-bufer was Solaris 2.4..

    So, driver compatibility probably trumps which is more powerful.

    FWIW: the matrox card is probably from 1990, the TGX is a bit newer.
    I'd imagine the TGX would win, but it is all probably moot in
    comparison for speeds.
