It's interesting seeing this as I remember ALL of the big jumps. From Hercules to CGA; EGA to VGA. ATI Rage and my 3dfx Voodoo cards in SLI.

I can't even begin to imagine what it's going to look like in 20 years. Photorealistic VR environments? I remember thinking you couldn't get better than VGA when I got my first VGA card.

My first graphics card was a Diamond Stealth 64 which actually had sockets where you could add additional ram to the card. Made the jump to a true 3d card with a pair of Diamond Monster Voodoo 2 cards in SLI a few years later.

It's sad how the GPU market has shrunk to only two players in the gaming market.

What do they do at the Canadian HQ ? So they do any engineering? Or just marketing/sales ?


Dam I had 2-3 older GPUs that all got thrown away over a decade ago, my parents threw them out without asking if I wanted them still.

Hope I am remembering correctly...

First computer I gamed on growing up I am quite certain had a Radeon 9800 Pro.

Others I can think of having in various computers over time....

- GeForce 4
- GeForce FX (was a midrange one if I recall, sucked)
- Radeon X1650 Pro (card was rock solid for what I was using it for at the time. Last AGP card we had I think...)
- 9800 GT
- Radeon HD 5770's
- GTX 670
- GTX 980

I wonder whats been hijacked over the years.

IT equipment thrown into an unsecured office always dwindles.

this reminds me - my next project is actually an elite win-XP gaming PC full of top of the line XP era hardware. So essentially a Dx9 beast. dos box gaming is just weird.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
