The Matrox Meteor is a family of PCI based frame grabber cards produced by Matrox (in the early to mid 1990s ?).

Matrox Meteor comes in four versions:
 Matrox Meteor, a standard monochrome and color frame grabber.
 Matrox Meteor/PPB, a standard monochrome and color frame grabber with an integrated PCI-to-PCI bridge.
 Matrox Meteor/RGB, an RGB color frame grabber.
 Matrox Meteor/PPB/RGB, an RGB color frame grabber with an integrated PCI-to-PCI bridge.
The "PPB" boards were introduced to address compatibility problems with chipsets on early Pentium PRO motherboards.

Note: The Meteor, Meteor/RGB, Meteor/PPB, and Meteor/RGB/PPB boards were succeeded by the Meteor II family of frame grabber cards.
