Hello, I have such video card, according to my tests it is almost the same as ET 6000, but I have one quirk, the vga is identified as et 6000, which makes me wonder, is there any other fellow vogonians that has a et 6100 and can confirm (or not) this quirk?

Also is anyone willing to share the et 6100 bios? Apparently nowhere can be found.

Thanks.

That's probably due lowered clocks. Does it work at 100 Mhz?

I must be some kind of standard: the anonymous gangbanger of the 21st century.

I've got a et6100 and a 6000 and when I did some benchmark tests with phils benchmark compilation in dos I couldn't see any difference performance wise.

The Et6000 is clocked at 91,87 the ET6100 at 97,16.

Special for googlebanned users “Newtown, Pa.–June 17, 1997–Tseng Labs Inc. (Newtown, Pa.) announced the availability of the ET6100, an enhanced version of its 128-bit ET6000 2-D Graphics and Multimedia Engine. The ET6100 features an integrated 175-MHz VGA-compatible LUT-DAC and delivers increased display bandwidth to support additional high resolution modes. These new modes include 1280 by 1024 16-bit at 75 Hz, 1024 by 768 24- bit at 85 Hz, and 1600 by 1200 in 8- and 16-bit pixel depths
So… just higher refresh rates in higher resolutions.
