On general they are around 20-50% slower then the fastest ISA cards (depends on the model as some can be as fast as good ISA card). But work good anyhow. Even on a 286-16 there is a noticeable speed difference between 8900 and ET4000. But there are even slower cards on ISA then Trident. Back in the days when I swapped some C&T VGA 256KB card for 8900 I was amazed how fast can 486slc-33 be (ISA bus only) 🤣
yeah, there are even slower isa video cards than the 8900, but they are older aswell, and probably limited to standard vga mode only.
i wonder whats the slowest svga cards with 512k dram or more.
