Video card vendor contacts (FAQ)

Video card vendor contacts (FAQ)

Post by Kendall Benne » Tue, 07 Dec 1993 21:29:01



            Video card vendor names and contact addresses:
            ----------------------------------------------

This small FAQ lists all known video card vendor and video chipset vendor
address and phone numbers. If you find any mistakes in the list, please
forward the corrections to me so that I can keep it up to date. If you
have a number or address not lists (or not known), please send this
information to me also.

Please verify any information first before sending it to me (ie: you
have actually contacted them on the number etc).

Thanks to all those who repsonded to my original request for information.
The list is now much more complete, but if you have anything to add or
find any mistakes please email me the details.

I will probably be contacting a large proportion of these companies
within the next month to verify and expand the information contained
within.
