Thanks a lot! The "P" and "X" are interesting. I haven't seen the '732 chip before and thought the Trio32 were also '764 based.

Looks like anything newer than 1996 is not supported. Good to know, but is not that critical to me, as it looks like these were never user in PowerPC machines. May add them though in a future if there would be any emulators for them.

Thank you for the video! Looks weird. Obviously there are more bugs than I was aware of. Good to test it with the physical cards while they still exist.

I think only 732 variants of Trio32 chips exists. Im not aware of any other versions. They were quickly replaced by various Trio64 chips....
