NS/Fip 32 bit colour Vlb Video Card suggestions needed

Post by E. Larry Li » Mon, 05 Sep 1994 10:22:11



Hello!
Well, I'm about to buy a video card for use with NS/Fip 3.3 (when it comes
out).  I need to run my computer in 800x600 w/ 32 bit color.  It would be
nice if it could do 32bit colour in higher resolutions, too, but it is not a
requirment for the card.

What is the best card I can get for this?

Thanks,
 Larry.

A really cool card is the Number Nine GXE64 Pro.




An above average card is the Diamond Viper 2 MB.


I have had experience with these two and can vouch that their performance is
acceptable.

I use a miro16si (S3-805i)   2MB  -  800x600 8:8:8
                                    1024x786 5:5:5

And the miro32s (4MB) has 32bit colour up to 1408x1024

According to NeXTanswers the 4 MByte Number Nine GXE64Pro goes up to
1152x864 in 32 bit color at 76 Hz under NeXTstep.

1. 32 bit vs. 64 bit video card

I currently own a 32 bit video card.  I am wondering if I upgrade to a
2D 64 bit video card if I will see significant improvement in video
performance.   I only want to get a 2D card so that I can wait to get
a 3Dfx card with the new Voodoo 2 chipset.

If anybody has recomendations for a good 2D card, let me know.

Thanks...Jason.
Cheers,
Jason
