Hello, good evening,

I'm speaking under correction, but..

The Zymos Poach 51 AA was a clone of the Trident TVGA 8800CS.
http://old.vgamuseum.info/benchmarks/606-zymo … oach-51-aa.html

As for the card itself, I believe it is a daughter card of some sort.

The edge connector could be a VESA/VGA feature connector,
while both of the gray connectors are ISA.

- This was pretty common in the 80s, I believe.
Some ISA cards had solder points above their ISA connector,
so another card could be mounted on them in a piggyback way.

Often I wished that people kept this idea.

Those edge connectors, looks like ISA slots in a different form.... Might be hackable to some degree, if you really want to fire it up.

Connectors looks the same as on this card

So the VGA connector is on the PINs on the top.

And the "ISA" connector...lloks like it would fit to the pin1 on a GUS classic...but there is a jumper block in between.

Hey, thanks for the link. So I my mind didn't play tricks on me when I saw that Paradise VGA daughter board once..

Maybe the GUS classic had such a piggyback header, too ? (I'm no GUS owner, sadly).

Stojke's card has 18+31 pins a 2 rows (36+62). That's 98 of overall pins.

According to Wikipedia, that's exact the same pin count as ISA has:

(German Wikipedia, since it has a table with specs)
