Validated computer systems

ImportantPlease note that only recent generations of the Intel® Pentium® 4 systems or motherboards are compatible with Matrox RT2500. For your convenience, we have provided a stand-alone utility that you can use to test your Intel® Pentium® 4 to determine if its Intel® 850 chipset is compatible for use with a Matrox RT2500 card. To download and run this small utility, see the Matrox RT2500 software area. This utility is intended for use with the Intel® 850 chipset only. Other chipsets, such as the Pentium® 4 845, do not require this test.

We perform these tests on a regular basis and update the information in this section with the latest result

Slot numbering

While some computers have numbered PCI slots, these do not follow any standard industry convention. With this in mind, we've developed a numbering scheme for identifying each slot position.
