Thread: EGA card, 8 or 16 bit ISA

  1. #1

    Default EGA card, 8 or 16 bit ISA

    Looking for a cheap EGA board for my 5170. I donít really care about which brand, since my monitor isnít an IBM 5154, Iím not looking at building an all IBM setup right now. So anything is probably fine, but Iím willing to hear opinions.

    I have an 8 bit one, not really sure what is is or specs but I know it can do EGA. The only identification of it is "SPEGA-00 Rev 1.2"

    I've got a Paradise Autoswitch 480 if that's of interest.

    FWIW, I've never seen a 16-bit EGA card.

    Cool

    Some 16BIT ISAs feature EGA & VGA. Or low & high count VGA out: my memory fails me.

    The 16-bit is for the VGA. EGA is an 8-bit service.

    Makes sense. I know I’ve seen some 16bit isa cards with a 9 pin connector. I guess I wrongly assumed they were EGA.
