    That's interesting. Didn't Matrox use to collaborate with AMD exclusively?

    They did use GCN for quite a long time before this, but they did carry some models with their own old chips too at the time, I think

    I am quite glad they are back. My Matrox G400 32 MAX was one of my favourite GPUs ever. Not the best but it was a different take. Still not as fast as the Voodoos.

    They're not "back" in any form that consumers would care about. They've always been around doing specialized display tech for commercial purposes and this is a continuation of that.

    As Malo pointed out, they're not back any more than they were with their GCN-based cards

    Nvidia’s GeForce Now is finally out of beta, challenges Google Stadia at $5 a month
    February 4, 2020

    Today, the company’s finally ready to let North America and Europe sign up to pay for its GeForce Now service, starting at $5 a month, while also offering unlimited one-hour free trials that don’t even require a credit card.

    The idea might sound familiar if you’ve heard of Google’s Stadia service, Sony’s PlayStation Now, Microsoft’s upcoming xCloud, or even Nvidia’s GeForce Now. (It’s been in beta for years and years, and also had a false start.) Each service operates on the same basic principle: delivering games much the same way you can stream a YouTube or Netflix video right now.
    ...
    Unlike Google, Sony, and Microsoft’s offerings, Nvidia has a very different pitch. It’s your existing library of PC games that you can now play anywhere, instead of having to buy new games and / or subscribe to a Netflix-like catalog. Nvidia supports Steam, the Epic Games Store, Battle.net, and Uplay, and it runs instances of each for you in the cloud. You can log into your accounts, download many of your existing purchases near-instantly to your cloud desktop, sync your old save games, and pick up where you left off in a couple of minutes at most — no patches necessary.

    This is a very sensible launch from Nvidia. Given the skepticism around cloud gaming the free option is the easiest way to gain early market share and drive adoption.

    Renting the hardware and letting people buy the games separately is also a very smart move. Why would anyone pay full price for a game that’s locked to a single cloud provider’s platform?

    So if/when does DLSS become a GeForce Now exclusive then?

    That makes no sense. The tech is already exclusive to their own products.
