Mach64 ISA - how rare is this card?

Postby furan » 2017-12-03 @ 20:08

I bought the ISA version a while back so I could stimulate it from an AVR chip. I dabble with FPGAs as a hobby and have implemented different types of graphic accelerators and I wanted to study the accelerator in this chip by driving it from a microcontroller (using a ring-bound mach64 databook I lucked out finding).

Anyway, here's a picture of the card. Is this rare? I had trouble finding it!

ISA? yes. PCI, no.
It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

That's why I have ISA in the title ;)

PCI = Abundant
VLB = Rare (maybe even more rare than ISA? Not sure)
ISA = Rare, but usually listed on ebay every few months
386DX-40MHz-8MB-540MB+428MB+Speedstar64@2MB+SoundBlaster Pro+MT-32/MKII
