Donations

This is the list of people and in future maybe also companies i'd like to thank for any donations they made. If you like the site and have some excess money or graphics card you don't need anymore, then your name might me here too. We are accepting money donations through paypal - these will be used for paying hosting and domains fees. Even more we like various graphics cards. Usually we must pay at last postage (to Czech Republic), so if you're not willing send them for free, then please offer only rare and unusuall cards. By rare i mean cards from 80's, TIGA and other various profi 2D cards, early 3D cards or not usuall ones, non PC cards, mobile chips used on cards with common interfaces (PCI, AGP, PCI-E), profi 3D cards and ofc any prototypes. Basically if theres missing card with chip you own, we're interested. And if only one collector have it, there's very high chance, that someone else want it too. Besides your nick/name i gladly show here also link to your personal or company site / store if you will be interested.


So far on site are these collectors - you can choose who will be lucky one getting your card/s.....
This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (Czech Republic, Přerov) - site creator, like most various profi 3D cards because these are forgotten. Will be also very happy for any non ATi/NVIDIA 3D card missing in his collection. 
Palcal  (Czech Republic, near Brno) - big fan of Diamond brand and TIGA based profi 2D cards. He's even collecting various revisions of Diamond. Sadly not having time for updating his HUGE collection, so only part is on site.
Zaatharen (Czech Republic) - mostly collecting 3D cards. But takes anything he's missing.
Pirx (Germany) - fan of miro brand cards and everything on VL-Bus + some highend ISA cards.
Pepino (Czech Republic, Brno) - likes most various rare 3D cards and everything older.

Last hope lost....

Many of you maybe already noticed, that we missing good graphics card info software. There are only few ones and almost all of them are not usefull for people with retro cards. Lets see what we have....

HWinfo - http://www.hwinfo.com - its free, but shows only basic info and usefull only for modern cards.

GPU-Z - http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/ - well known free software used everywhere. Sadly it works only on Win XP SP3 and never OS, requires installed card drivers to show all info and its useless for anything older than year 2000. Author won't support older cards in future. It will be pointless anyway, because most of these cards won't have drivers for these modern OS.

PowerStrip 2.78 - http://entechtaiwan.com/util/ps2.shtm - very old shareware, that is supported only in Win9x/2000. New version drops support for old cards. It was most common software used for overclocking less known cards. But many cards missing info and clocks are not always right.

Aida64 - http://www.aida64.com - being still developed shareware info tool. Today its best available software showing not only info about your cards, but also DirectX functions and OpenGL extensions. Another great thing is that its still working in Windows 98. Sadly also this sofware isn't perfect, because it still have sometimes blank info pages at some old cards. And thats why i writed this short article.

I was doing recently small tests of 1st generation 3D cards (43 of them) in mine collection compared with some other mostly OEM chips. So i also saved and updated reports from these cards on site. Not all cards were supported by Aida so i sended one report to Aida developers to see their reaction. They thanked for report and said, that support of pre GPU (=anything older than Geforce 256) cards is mostly accidental and they are not planning to extend it for any old not supported cards. This means that we probably never see any software capable of showing clocks and info about old cards in our collections and retro PC. Aida was mine last hope, but its lost now. Chances for finding someone new doing info software are next to none. 

Here is mine email and reply i got.

Hi Vlask,


Thank you for submitting your reports to us.  Quite frankly, the GPU page
was originally designed to show information on GPUs, just as the name of the
page suggests.  We never intended to add legacy video chips on that page,
although to some degree we've added a few of those a few years ago, just for
completeness, but stopped at a certain point and instead focused on new
chips.  And I'm afraid we have no plans to expand the list of supported
legacy non-GPU video chips, or legacy video chips in general.

BTW, when it comes ATI/AMD video chips, AIDA64 should support all of them
starting from the Rage128 line.  So anything preceding that line will not be
supported.


Best Regards,
Tamas Miklos
