Matrox Parhelia Reef Demo – The Best DirectX 8 Benchmark Ever?

The Matrox Parhelia 512, the biggest disappointment of 2002 in my opinion. The card had tons of potential and stacked up really well against the Geforce 4 TI 4600 when anti-aliasing and anisotropic filter were cranked up. To bad for Matrox that ATI released the Radeon 9700 pro about a month later. One great thing did come from the Parhelia though, the underwater Reef Demo.

Hi, man
 
I loved your article about the Reef Demo (from Matrox). I like the idea to run this 
(amazing!) demo on my computer, but I can´t do it anyway. I have a GeForce3 Ti 
200 (@Quadro), Athlon XP 1600+@1900+ and 256 DDR running on KT266A. 
What´s happen? Well, the textures are missing. Everything looks gray. Do you 
know how can I solve that?
 
I wait your answer
Thanks a lot

#2 by Squirre1 on Wednesday, Mar 19 at 6:20 PM The individuals that ran the demo while we were creating the article and provided us with the geforce information failed to tell us about the lack of textures... I myself have not seen it run on a GeForce, personally owning a Radeon. But it is rocking on the Radeon chipsets...
