[INDENT]We’ve recently been discussing with an early adopter the prospects of Matrox’s new RT.X2 ‘lower-cost’ HDV-capable video editing card and came across what looks like an industry first.

Apparently, in its quest to ensure that users experience the RT.X2 in an optimum platform, Matrox seems to have rather cut off the single-threaded past of the desktop computer.

According to our source, when they tried to install the card in a single-processor PC, the driver installation flatly said ‘No’, or maybe ‘Non’, as Matrox is based in Quebec in the French part of Canada.[/INDENT]
