Thank you for obliging! It's so rare to see these materials nowadays that it seems important to share them for posterity 😀

Is the QVision 1280/E a 2MB card? I notice there's no onboard expansion as there is on my 1280/p PCI card and 1280/I integrated controller in one of my old Deskpros.

Looking for something else I stumbled across this beauty I allready forgot about.
The before mentioned Matrox Magic.
Anybody has an idea what graphic chip is hiding under the heatsink?
Still not sure if it is a graphics board or a framegrabber due to the large number of asics.
I did not prove it working yet, but drivers are still availiable at matrox ftp.

The graphic chip under the heatsink is an S3 805... at least in the card I have. I am unsure if they used different chipsets for this product line or if maybe they only used the one chip throughout.
