Interesting. I wonder if there are ISA cards longer than AWE32, or modern PCIe cards longer than 6800 Ultra Mac.

Anyway....

You're not going to find a mass-produced ISA card with a PCB longer than 13.3", because that's "full length". Anything longer will not fit in a standard AT case.

Had some old Thomas Conrad token ring card around 10 years ago.

All my retro cards are actually quite short, with a Pentium-era ethernet adapter the longest (and it only extends a few inches past the end of the ISA slot).

The HD 5970 edges out the 6800 Ultra DDL, but only because of the shroud and only by a hair. It's the longest card I can think of off the top of my head.

Ah, classic.

Interesting card. I've never seen a card that has Rage128, Voodoo3, G400, Savage4, and TNT2 on one card ever. That must be rare in existence.

Is this an April Fools' joke? It does seem overwritten.

It was a fake ad in a magazine years ago.

Look that card up on youtube. Also look up the Voodoo 5 9000 on youtube. Same guy made April Fool's videos for them.

It was NOT fake and it was not an ad.
It was in the Sept 1999 issue of Magnum PC. (Not anywhere near April...)
And you can now see that issue online to see for yourself.
https://books.google.com/books?id=FwIAAAAAMBA … epage&q&f=false
It's mentioned in the article index on page 6 and the article is on page 112.

I used to get Magnum PC and I followed that author because he was a nut case and a fun read.
If you actually read the article what he was saying is that card is ridiculous. (As in stupid.)
Don't miss the note in the bottom right corner.

That page in the magazine was called "Glitch, by Jon Phillips".
The whole point of Glitch was to call stupid things stupid.

And here's a "Glitch" for this thread....

Why do guys always end up bragging about how long their "parts" are? 🤣 🤣 🤣

If you think that card is real, I have a bridge to sell you...

Have you ever owned a card very long that won't fit into standard ATX case?

Never thought this thread would be that long, but now, for something different.....

I had an Adaptec Ultra SCSI card from a Dell PowerEdge 6300 Server that was so long that it almost reached the other end of my AT computer case and went over my CPU fan (Socket 7).

Probably the PTI-255W in my 486 - it's a VLB card, which is tied with the S3 805 in the same computer for size.....

PTI-255W (before I tweaked the HDD Controller BTW)

not as big as some on the forum, but honestly the whole idea of card size makes me laugh anyway. The longer the PCB, the more likely it'll get flexed someday and something will need resoldered or patched together with wires and solder.

Baby AT motherboards that put the CPU right of the PCI slots (e.g. PCChips M573) are annoying. ATX put a stop to that nonsense.
