Impressive. Please do show the final results and how well they perform. Is it hard to source those ICs? I figure all the Realtek etc ICs are long EOL?

This is some very cool stuff, welcome to the forum 😁

I was just thinking the other day that some of the chips for things like Western Digital ISA video cards are available, but the cards are not, so seeing a similar thing done with a realtek VGA card is wonderful.

in mind to make also ST-506 MFM HDD replacement board - 2x512Mb NVRAM in half length of 5.25 bay. I have alot of ISA16/8 controllers, but the storage is not available on the market or price/condition is not good.
