X hacker, for Red Hat and recreationally. See elsewhere.
I have something of a rare hardware fetish. The following list of cards I'd like to have at some point is as much for my own benefit as anyone else's. If you have one of these and are willing to part with it, please let me know! Contact info can be found through the link at the top.
Even better, if you have programming information for this hardware, or contact information for the defunct companies, let me know. Even if it's just a definitive "sorry, this never taped out", that's better than nothing.
Anything! They look like they were in business just long enough to sell some of their own kit before being bought by ATI (ATI paying to have ArtX take over really). I already have a GameCube, thanks though.
Various FireGLs. This is a bit misleading since Diamond never did silicon, but wikipedia lists basically four varieties: FireGL 1 - 4 with IBM chips, 1000 through 3000 just boring old Permedias, 4000 is some wacky Mitsubishi chip and 5000 is something totally alien. I'd love to lay hands on a 4000 or 5000, I have examples of the other two varieties.
Pretty much any REALimage chip. I have a Lightning 1200 and a Tornado 3000. The E&S chips look like they also made their way into AccelGraphics' AccelGalaxy and other boards. See also RealVision below.
MagicMedia 256XL+. The only one with a 3D engine. Almost certainly only to be found in laptops. The OQO model 01 possibly?
Anything done by Silicon Spectrum.
Anything. Corporate takeover history leads me to believe they inherited the gfx group from E&S, so these might be related kit. I don't speak Japanese though.
DeltaChrome and GammaChrome. I have a Chrome S27.
