I'd like to ask your opinion on why the Power VR PCX cards were the only ones that choosed the PCI usage solution to send the output to the VGA cards and taking benefit of the quality of the main vga card itself, insted of all the other mostly bad solutions like the pass-through cables or the feature connector cables that ended always up with bad image quality or difficult compatibilities with drivers, resolutions, color depth etc..
Of all the other add-on card that needed the vga to work I remember only the M3D/PCX cards to solve that problem while the 3dfx cards, decoderd cards, encoder cards etc.. all had those analog solution that was seriously limited in quality and soon in lifetime once LCD became the standard and basically destroyed these cable analog solutions without having the CRT input "tollerance" anymore.
What's your opinion? And how did actually worked that solution?
