My sincerest apologies for bumping a very old thread here, but I find this topic quite interesting and was wondering if anyone had any thoughts or advice on how to find EISA video cards. I don’t want to create a new thread, as my interest is much the same as slaynmage’s.
I’d like to know if it’s just me, or if there really are very few S3/Tseng/ATI EISA video cards available? Does anyone have any idea where the heck to find these cards and whether any are still floating around out there?
I do have a Compaq QVision 1024/E, but this seems to be one of the easier-found cards. I’ve scoured the usual sources and heard little back; this is strange to me, as it seems like there should be some out there. I am located in the USA—is that perhaps a barrier to sourcing these cards? Someone mentioned to me that they are more commonly found in Europe these days.
Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated! I’m quite interested in the characteristics of these cards and I’ve been planning a VL/EISA build that I think would be great for testing these and doing some comparisons. I’m also considering an EISA Pentium build and was considering something somewhat unconventional. I am a big fan of early Windows accelerator cards and EISA video hardware has always been intriguing to me.
