I hoped soooo much that the ATI screensavers from 2000 would be complete - but nope, they are 1Mb truncated (Internet Wayback machine limitation, I guess)...

Anyone got an image of a Voodoo4 wallpaper with a Pentium III logo on it?

I can make one for you. AGP or PCI picture, and where would you like the logo? Also which dimensions for the wallpaper itself? :)

Has some wallpapers, advertisement templates with high res images, .ai and .psd files for some of the GeForce2/3/4/Quadro badges to put on wallpapers. I think there's also some high res .tif photos of different cards, silicon wafer shots and other things that'd make neat wallpapers. These were all freely given away about 10-15 years ago by contacting Nvidia and weren't under any sort of NDA or distribution agreement, so there is no issue distributing them. Most people just forget they existed.

Also have my screensavers. A bit off topic but most of them match their wallpaper counterparts. Have ATI, Nvidia and Matrox. The Matrox ones are designed for certain OS's and cards, and they are specified in their readme files.

As always, please virus scan before using anything from the Internet.

Matrix/ATI/Nvidia Screensavers: https://mega.nz/#!r0owlbzI!CTmvrkPqPuLK ... c3e89wEfNQ

I'll continue to work compiling more of what I have and uploading when I can.

Enjoy!


Thanks for taking the time to upload these, but Megacrapload asks for an account (witch I refuse to make).

Did anyone else download these? Could you upload them somewhere else or put them on a FTP or Torrent site?

AGP, also I'd like the P3 logo in the lower hand corner. Finally 1024x768

Also is it possible if you could put the AWE64 Gold logo on it as well near the lower left hand corner?

Some quick ones that I did here at work during lunch break. Logos should sit above the taskbar if I remembered my measurements correctly. If you want changes just let me know.

I made it in adobe illustrator just tracing a picture from the board. It was pretty rough for the wallpaper because it was small. This weekend I will make a clean version and post it.

No, sorry. That's the only HP one I had. The only other vintage wallpaper I have a common Gateway one that can be found on Google. Getting PCs with intact HDDs isn't super common in my area.

Could someone with skills add these logos for me, im thinking for the intel background to put the logos along the bottom or have them in the top right corner going down and for the planet one background, top right corner going down and could the watermark in the bottom be removed as well. I know its a bit of a tall order, but if someone could do that for me that would be awesome, I love my logos. Thanks in advance.

P.S. this computer will be displayed tomorrow at a job fair for students , so credit will be given.
