what is it about matrox?
the cards are inadequate, and they cost SO much money, when they can be outperformed with £20 (7200GS) instead of a £420 PARHELIA card??!!

They are 2D cards for business use, they are not built for 3d games.

Because they are made for very specific purposes, like crazy stock broker/trader setups.

current gaming cards (geforce and radeon) in multi monitor setups will give you two seperate displays with their own independent resolution. A matrox card combines the resolution of all the monitors and creates a single display. To the best of my knowledge this feature is only available from firegl and quadro series cards which are priced about the same.
