Hey guys, I am piecing together a computer that I would like to specialize in early 3D/proprietary APIs. I have a voodoo 1 of course, and I can find a S3 Virge GX without much issue. I am thinking about maybe adding in a rage pro to my setup, so those three alone gives me support for glide, S3D, and ATI. Something else I would really like to experiment with is power VR. They don't driver their own display, so it should be able to slide right in along side my Voodoo 1 as a dedicated accelerator. Neat!
Trouble is, I cannot find even one listing for any power VR cards on ebay. I have found the vogons wiki and the products list on Wikipedia. There are three vendors/AIBs - Compaq under the "midas" branding, Apacolypse 3D, and Matrox M3D. All of my searches are coming up empty. Searching PowerVR, NEC PowerVR, PCX2, and similar also turns up nothing.
I have no idea how expensive these cards are, so they might be out of my price range anyway. I was hoping someone could help me refine my search terms, and just to satisfy my curiosity, give me some indication of how much I would have to pay for one if I can find it.
