what chip does it use?
ELSA was just a manufacturer from Germany IIRC
It's a ELSA GLoria Synergy based on Permedia 2. I don't know how well it performs in DOS, but I achieved with it around 20 fps at 640x480 in Quake II (on a 533 MHz Alpha CPU). Here is a review (ELSA Winner 2000 is basically the same card): http://www.sunstorm.com/tech/ft-001r5.htm .
Users who look for a moderate amount of DOS compatibility will be disappointed with any Permedia 2 board. There are no DOS VESA modes available in the BIOS, and our sources claim it unlikely that ELSA will write a software driver. Users will have to hope the a third-party TSR will be written, in the chance that such a thing is even possible.
Dunno, I have a Elsa Winner 2000 here which has a S3 Virge VX chip (marked WINNER2000AVI/3D).
The AGP Victory Erazor has a Nvidia Riva 128 chip
