Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) April 27, 2005

Matrox Graphics Inc., the leading manufacturer of graphics solutions for professionals, today announced the release of its new 64-bit SE drivers for Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, for the Matrox Parhelia(TM), Millennium P-Series, QID, and Millennium G-Series product families. The Matrox 64-bit SE drivers support both AMD64 processors and 64-bit Intel(R) Xeon(TM) processors. With this release, Matrox continues its distinguished tradition of delivering high-quality, reliable, and future-proof graphics solutions to professional markets, with real-world benefits such as increased productivity and efficiency.

"By making 64-bit drivers simultaneously available for our PCI, AGP, and PCI Express graphics products, Matrox is providing a broad set of graphics solutions to our professional users," says Dan Wood, vice-president technical marketing, Matrox Graphics Inc.

Windows XP Professional x64 Edition is designed to provide faster performance with increased reliability and flexibility for today's most demanding users, enabling them to run memory and calculation-intensive applications and processes more efficiently. This new processor architecture can also run new 64-bit applications as well as most existing 32-bit applications for maximum flexibility on a single PC.
