As i always do, my report on hardware that i've got on december 2018 and first days of january 2019.
ATi Radeon 9000 Pro
ATi Rage 128
GL VR (ATi Xpert 2000)
Thanks to SW-SSG for correcting me.
ATi Radeon 9800 Pro
Kinda rare thing, since there's a TONS of various 9600s around (or, in some occasions, 9800 SE), but i was lucky enough to get this one. Especially lucky because i found this card in my city, not far away from place where i live, and it was quite cheap. 😎
Never heard of this card before, but i guess it's save to say that it's something like S3 Trio64.
Nvidia GeForce4 MX460 (MSI G4MX460)
I know that MX family of Geforce cards is not rare at all, there's millions of them floating around in various marketplaces, but MX460 would be probably one kind of exception.
Nvidia Riva TNT2 Ultra (ASUS AGP-V3800U/32MB(TV))
Nvidia Riva 128
For me - it's a great find, since PCI versions of 128 are much rare than AGP ones. I suppose.
Nvidia GeForce FX5900XT
A card that probably can be a good choice for "Late Win98 PC Build". Also, black Palit? I know that back in the days they used mostly purple PCB, then they switched to red color.
S3 Savage4 Pro (Diamond Stealth III S520) and Diamond Stealth III S530
I guess i finally completed Stealth III line (since i also have S540 16mb and 32mb versions). Now for full Diamond-Savage experince i must look for Speedstar line, and I hope that i'll find Z200 someday... 😀
S3 Savage4 LT (Inno3D S3 Savage4PCI)
Also good find for me, although i already have 16mb Pro version. But, hey, this is LT version, and this card was made on black PCB (16mb version have yellow one), so for me - they're completely different. 🤣
S3 ViRGE/GX2 (Flagpoint CVXA-30A)
This is 4mb version, since there's also 2 memory chips on the back of the card. Interesting (and weird) enough that Flagpoint also did 2mb version.
In conclusion - 2018 was a very productive year in terms of my additions to collection, and i hope 2019 will be same. 😈
