I have a Kyro card but no Kyro II, sounds like a very fun card for P3 etc. systems 😀

I just received a graphics card I got for a vintage desktop I'm currently working on. It's an Intel RH1N07 graphics card, and I got on eBay last week. This is a replacement graphics card for this PC, because I screwed up its previous one.

Basically a VGA graphics card. It also has a little cooling fan, because graphics cards do need to work hard for their money 😁

I've been looking for one of those Intel-build i740 cards for a while now. Any chance you could share what search terms you used to find it? 🤣

I have the 4500 in an Athlon 1800+ build. As first game, I wanted to try it with Tron 2.0 but nope. No T&L on this card so the fun was over :p No Tron for me.

My retro collection: too much...

I just went on Google Images and typed "Intel RH1N07" in the search bar, and in the results, I found an image of the graphics card I was looking for that linked to that item on eBay, so then I found what I wanted. Simple.

I had the same question.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

I was not posting new things for a while cause I'm so busy 🙁 But that doesn't mean that I don't get new stuff 😉
Here is what came to me this week. Some boxed goodies:

- Roland CM-500
- IBM Music Feature Card
- Canopus Spectra X20 (GF3)
- PowerLeap for Slot-1 to Socket-370 for Tualatins
- Boxed and sealed! Obsidian X-16
- Ramdrive from Gigabyte

Goodies.jpg

But not busy enough to not find some really rare hardware 😀 Great finds. I never see Canopus cards in my country, I guess that it's a local brand?

I got a Canopus Voodoo, the Pure3D, on Marktplaats once, still one of my best finds. 2 euros 😁 Has 6 MB of memory instead of 4 MB, and a non-standard loopthough cable.

Do you want to double your money spent? 🤣

Just added Canopus to my search query!

Will post my photo in a dedicated CRT thread when I get to it...

It's Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 930SB. Picture quality is amazing even after 15 years. I already own a 22" 2070SB so this is a smaller brother. Now find me a 17" 730SB model 😉

Bought a Mitsubishi Diamond Plus 93SB. Now I really need to find the 17" SB models 🤣

Both still have very good picture quality. But will do a head to head comparision when I get some time and free space on my desk 🤣

Also got a Philips 14M CRT. Small, maybe 12", black and white VGA monitor.

Good catch, I did not even notice. The seller had this listed as a SCSI floppy drive.
You are right it is just a regular IDE floppy drive. 😠
I only paid a few bucks for it so I am not complaining but I do need a SCSI floppy drive.

The ASUS is a nice board. The ATX form factor becomes more and more important as it gets harder to ob- and maintain AT-PSUs. But I think the RTC-module is soldered, ASUS soldered back in the day while Gigabyte for example spent some cents more and used socketed RTC-modules.

However, the ASUS is not the first ATX Board. I think the first ATX board was Intel FX based, made by Intel.
I recently acquired a lot of Intel Advanced / ML (MARL) Motherboards (Intel based, ATX, Intel HX chipset). Featurewise these boards are quite basic (No onboard USB for example). These boards are also very nice for building a DOS / W95 based rig. I like it because of its great build quality, great documentation, good layout and use of a standard CR2032 battery instead of a RTC module with glued-in battery.

Here is a picture of the Intel MARL board:

intel_advanced_ml_2.jpg

I'm building a P200 rig with it, along with a Miro Highscore 3D (licensed Canopus Pure 3D card) and a Riva or a Savage or Matrox Mystique card.

I have 3 of those exact boards, 1 is in a Pentium 133 build and 1 is in a Pentium 75 build.

Anybody an idea what kind of cards these are? Look like an 286 SBC, but I dont see e.g. a BIOS?
Currently is offered a box with some of these...but I dont think they are of much use?
