Which accelerated card video card to buy ?

Post by Dirk Eddelbuett » Fri, 22 Jul 1994 04:20:35

Which accelerated card gives me best value for money for using X11 ?
Hardware is a 486/33 DX with 16 MB, monitor is an Arche 214S (a cheap
SVGA), with 28-40 kHZ horizontal, 38-85 Hz vertical, 1024x768 interlaced,
card now is a 3 year old OTI 067 with 512 kByte.

So I look for something that increases speed rather than resolution,
I'll probably stick with 800x600 or something slighly higher. Is there a
`must buy this one' avoiding driver trouble ?

I will summarise any helpful emails back to the group. I'll appreciate
any information.

Cheers, Dirk

1. Programming video card (ATI card w/ s-video & tv-out) Need direction to correct info

    I hope some people read this and can help me out.

I have a ATI Rage Pro pci video card that has s-video and tv-out. I want
to be able to use the s-video and tv-out on the card. Now, is this down
by the app(like what I find on Video4Linux) or is it in Xfree86?

I want to know if there has been a driver developed which accesses the
s-video and tv-out on the ATI card. If so, a pointer to the source would
be great.

If not, then I would like to know how would I go about to use the
s-video and tv-out. I just need some clarification on if the actual app
would take care of loading up the s-video interface and tv-out interface
or if it is the actual video card driver(Xfree86?).

Thanks for any help in advanced and if it isn't too much trouble, can
you also cc: you rhelp to my e-mail?
