Going through my VGA collection I keep thinking about the VGA feature connector.
It seem so widespread on contemporary VGA cards. I am yet to see a pre-AGP card without one.
On the other hand, I've hardly seen any devices that connected to this connector.
It sound like a goo concept but even obvious choices like early MPEG accelerators or some other devices used different way of integration. Either external pass through or proprietary ports. Was it not suitable for 3Dfx or other things for some reason? Was it bandwidth or compatibility that limited its use?
Do you own any devices connecting to the feature connector? If so could you show them?
