Not content with letting NVIDIA (& ATi sorta) getting bad press of late, Matrox have decided to join the party. So you thought the Matrox Parhelia had partial DirectX 9 features support? Well, apparently it doesn't, as you see Matrox have removed all DirectX 9 feature references from the Parhelia specifications.
More info. on MURC. You can view the check Parhelia's features & specs here, updated to not mention any DirectX 9 feature support. Props to Matrox for their late, & winning, entry to the How low can you go? competition. I'd be curious to know whether Matrox will refund users who purchased the Parhelia in part based on this partial DirectX 9 advertised support.
