So most of you are aware of the existence of AGP to PCI adapters - mainly used by Voodoo5 6000 enthusiasts to run their card on newer platforms.
Having seen pictures of said adapters, it appears that they are deceptively simple in design, with just a couple of chips which I assume are level shifters?
Anyway, I wonder if anyone is up to the task of making some repro boards given that nowadays PCB design is well within the realms of even the hobbyist. I know these adapters have limited application as they’ll only work on cards that don’t use any fancy AGP features, but nonetheless, it’d be great to be able to use the more commonly found AGP Voodoo3 on non-AGP machines, for example.
Unfortunately I lack the skills to design such an adapter but I wanted to get the ball rolling here as there’s definitely the talent around here to make such a thing possible, and I’m sure more than enough interested people to make it financially viable too.
