Remembering the old graphics cards
In our forums a thread just started called 'Remembering the old'. In here people show photo's of their oldest graphics cards. Pretty funny to be honest, so I have an extensive collection of graphics cards. Ever since 1996/1997 this fetish started. If at all interesting on a slow news day, I might just take a card every now and then, and make a new photo of it.
The first is where it really all started for me .. This is a 3Dfx voodoo graphics based card. back in these days 3D graphics (or actually accelerator it was called back then) you needed to add it next to your existing 2D graphics card and loop the two with a cable.
Some interesting facts, 65K maximum colors, highest resolution supported 800x600 (640x480 was the norm). 4 MB EDO memory.
