Thread: Toshiba Libretto 50 CT or Compaq Portable EGA card or JVC 26pin for a PCI Voodoo 3?

    Default Toshiba Libretto 50 CT or Compaq Portable EGA card or JVC 26pin for a PCI Voodoo 3?

    Hey everyone!

    I'm looking to get my hands on a PCI Voodoo 3 or PCI graphics card of equal capability.

    I'm offering a Toshiba Libretto 50CT or a Compaq Portable EGA graphics card (aka Compaq Enhanced Color Graphics), or cash if none of those float your boat.

    Things I may be willing to trade:
    - I also have an ATI VGA Wonder+ with TTL and VGA with InPort mouse bus
    - Kaypro IV'83
    - Cyrix 486Srx2 50Mhz (clip on 386sx 25Mhz upgrade)
    - Columbia Data Products MPC1600-4 (256k version)
    - Kaypro PC (EXP-like)
    - Working JVC 26 pin hard drive, pulled from Toshiba T1200

    oooch, I've been looking for one of those Compaq EGA cards for a while, but I haven't got anything nearly as new as that voodoo you want.
    All my PC stuff is ISA-era...
    Current favorites: IBM 5160 (EGA+Hercules+PGC, 8 floppy drives, XT-IDE), DCC D-116 (Nova 1200 clone), ASR 33 Teletype (now FULLY armed and operational! Mostly.)
    Wishlist: IBM 5161 (expansion chassis), Diablo 31/RK02/RK05 or equivalent, Data General Nova software, and the meaning of life.

    What does the ATI VGA Wonder+ look like? Google is failing me. It's an ISA card, right?

    That's right, it's a nifty 16/8 bit ISA VGA card with VGA and Digital RGB TTL outputs. But it has a trick up it's sleeve: It can display incompatible TTL signals on any TTL monitor. It can run CGA and EGA on MDA monitors, MDA and EGA on CGA monitors, and MDA on EGA monitors.

    Here's a what that card looks like and a couple of examples of it's TTL trickery.

    Im interested in the JVC drive, the Cyrix 486srx2, The Kaypro iv, the ati vga wonder, and the Libretto 50CT. How much for the bundle? I believe I do have some equivalent pci video cards, I can look tonight and see what models I have laying around.

    Not to change the subject - just to give it a bit of a bump - thinking about your request I remembered that I have a PCI Voodoo accelerator with pass-through installed to an Nvidia 4000 in a Pentium II machine, and just wondered - does this arrangement actually do anything or is the Nvidia so fast that it is pointless?
