Tell us:
Which retro graphics card did you purchase last ?
Or just post any of your collection.

I'll start with a card from my collection.
Does anyone know which card it is ?

Close, but no. 😀

ELSA GLADIAC ULTRA 64MB GeForce2 Ultra ?

That was what I was going to guess.

I’ve got far too many cards to list, especially with pics, but I do really like these three:

Excluding cards I took out of full systems, I think this Epson CGA card was the last stand-alone card I bought:

Bought one of the new Intel cards. Can confirm the rumours sadly - it's not great for DX9.

I ended up getting this nice 8mb virge vx , unfortunately the card has artifacts which might be from bad ram.

Fair use/fair dealing exception

I did end up finding a non boxed duplicate card minus the add on ram board so when that comes in I'll see if it works.

I do find it special, at least interesting.
1999 "Savage 4" is still somehow findable, but this previous 1998 "Savage3D", is not easy to come across...just like the "Savage2000".

ET4000/W32i, 2MB (although 1MB of it is 60ns instead of 45ns, so it sparkles quite a bit in the Doom timedemo).

Used with my M-321 with Am38DX-40/Cx387DX-40, 256KB cache, and 32MB of RAM.

Retro only? Pre DX10? Separate card that didn't come with a machine?
I believe that would be the Quadro FX 4500 for my PowerMac G5 Quad, over a year ago.
