It's Miro day today it seems. Here's what I just received:

Great serendipity. Was lamenting not having an OPL4-based wavetable card while discussing somebody's Miro PCM20. What turned up on a local site literally minutes later for a very reasonable price? Yep, this beauty.

Amusingly the topic also referenced a Terratec Maestro 32/96, and sure enough this seller also had one of those too 😜
(and no, I'm sure it's not the same person)

Unfortunately that one was priced closer to the going rate, more than I'm currently able to justify to myself, so let that one pass.

Very cool guy. Gave me the pin-layout for it.

Got one a few weeks back. Can you share the pinout please?

Count me in too if you don't mind. I had the Hiscore a while from a German seller who seemed to have a MIRO collection. Sadly it always freezes launching a 3DFX game.

Recently got the PURE3D and no issues

@mpe some of the legs on your bottom 3DFX chip are in need of alignment, mine was similar.

Recommend a fan in a faster system.

Took me some time to find one at a reasonable price. Finally have a Voodoo Card with 6mb (Miro Hiscore 3D).

Sadly came without the VGA to Mini Din 9-Pin cable. So if sb knows how to get one of these, that would be very much appreciated!

That's a really beautiful looking Voodoo1. 6mb too.

Just a bit of dust. Thank you!

Don't worry, yours looks good. I was just worried about @mpe's card
You actually made me take a closer look at my Hiscore. Found two smds that have cracked solder on the back so i'll try and fix it, thanks again!

Awesome card that Miro PCM1 Pro!

Got myself a winXP gaming laptop, just because I like myself so much. 😁
Dell XPS M1710. This is the basic model with Core2Duo 2Ghz and Geforce 7900GS. Highest you can go is T7600 + 7950 GTX + 4gb ram + blue ray drive.
Luckily it came with 2Gb RAM and SSD drive.
Though I think they should have added more LEDs to it, to make it a bit more blingy...

Nice bunch of stuff ! All I found was a IDE CD/DVD burner from 2002, works just fine (can never have enough cheap PATA/IDE drives 😀 )

Hate posting a reply and have to edit it because it made no sense 😁 First computer was an IBM 3270 workstation with CGA monitor. 🤣 Second computer a 286 12Mhz with real IDE drive ! After that came 386, 486, Pentium, P.Pro and everything after....

Definitely needs more LEDs!
