    From MURC:
    "Matrox is scheduled to have some presentations at GDC. The most interesting is one by Juan Guardado . If you remember from last year, Juan showed a demo of displacement mapping running on unnamed hardware (now a G550). If you were at the event, you will remember the demo ran at a snail-paced 1-3 fps. Well, this year he is at it again, but this time I would bet we see some real hardware to push a demo of displacement mapping. Barring any unexpected problems, expect a preview of what Parhelia will be capable of. "

    Wooo,how much fps Parhelia can run the displacement mapping?

    While I won't comment on "Parhelia" , or Matrox's next gen at all (take from that what you will) , I would hope people aren't blindly thinking they'll announce a new card at GDC. That's historically not what Matrox has done with product announcements or releases...

    Ben6: you are right about that.

    only thing that I could think about could be tech release.
    so cards are still far away.
