Could it be? Is It really? The awesome almighty IBM Power Processor?

What's weird is where it's at......

If I remember correctly, a lot of the IBM chips were (are?) blue. At least it is how I remember disassembling RS/6000 desktop systems.

I've always used IBM stuff like this, I guess I just never saw one before....

I'm just taking a wild guess, based on the words 'Pallette DAC' screened on the chip.

Duh, I took the picture, I know its a video card. I just didn't know what the chip was. There is a bigger chip above it I thought was the GPU. maybe it has 2 for all I know....

DAC=Digital-to-Analog Converter (which I'm sure you already know).

Yeah, I have worked with RAM DAC's before. But I don't remember what I was doing with them.....

No worries, mate...I have days when my brain takes a hike too (a whole lot of 'em, AAMOF).
