Post your OLDEST graphics card thread. - Page 15

post #141 of 148
Let's see, my first cards(in order):

1)S3 virge 2mb by Spider Graphics.

2)3DFX Voodoo 1(bought to play Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight in hardware accelerated 3d, and later Half-Life(3DFX MiniGL), and Wing Commander Prophecy(Glide) - EVERYTHING was better with Glide)

3)Riva 128 (swapped out the Spider with this, kept the Voodoo)

4)Voodoo Banshee(brother's computer got the Riva and Voodoo 1)

5)Voodoo 3 2000

6)Geoforce 2

7) Radeon 7000

8) Geoforce FX 5(?)00(I think, it might have been a 5600)

9) ATi Radeon X800XT AGP(bought specifically for HL2) which I was still using when I became a member here....


Looking back on it the last time I was truly blown away by a hardware jump was the Voodoo 1. It's been diminishing returns from there on - take that back. The last time I was truly blown away was the Geoforce 2 demo that showed transparent water rendered on the fly THAT is when diminishing returns hit. That's when revolutionary became evolutionary. The next leap will be real time ray tracing, and nothing less.

RealVision Flash 3D with 3Dfx's voodo Graphics chipset (and a whopping 4GB vram). Best guess, its what most would call a voodoo 1. No idea what the "color" card that it was connected to was.



It's funny actually. I was rummaging through the attic when I found a bunch boxes and recites my first comp. Turns out I have been totally wrong about the CPU for the last 15 years. When I got it I was told it had a 200Mhz pentium in it but it turns out that it was actually AMD K6 running at 266Mhz tongue.gif Anyone how the K6's compared to pentiums of the time as I distinctly remember having games with a pentium 200MHz minimum (266MHz recomenderd) lag like no tomorrow looking at you The Longest Journey jealoussmiley.gif

First ever was an ATi All-in-Wonder 128, based on the RAGE 128. Dunno what happened to it, don't care, driver headaches galore.

These are the oldies I still have laying around:



Top Radeon 9700 Pro 128MB, left Geforce 2 MX200 32MB and right Geforce 4 MX440 64MB.
