Which graphics card (or chip) was the fastest DOS (2D) performer ever? I reckon it must have been produced during the late VLB / early PCI -era around 1995. After this focus shifted to 3D performance. The reason I'm asking is that I'm building a "Demo/scene" 486 for running old DOS demos.
I'm building the Ultimate 1994 Demo Scene Machine. Specs so far:
* i486DX2/66 * 32 Mb FPM 2-1-1-1/0 WS RAM * Cirrus Logic 5428 VLB 1 Mb (suggestions?)
* Maxtor uMAX II 6 Gb HDD * 3Com 3C509B * SB Pro 16 * GUS Max 1 Mb
