Unlikely - I can't immediately find any datasheets on the Permedia 2 chip on that card, and having implemented the ViRGE and 3dfx I don't really want to have to emulate another 3D chip any time soon.

Thanks Tom for replay.

This is special card, it have it more very success with 3d card....a lot time ago. ;)

They are already in possession of technical material of this card:
_Datascheet architecture chip
_Bios
_Driver
...and I am available as a beta-tester....

If in the future you desire and time contact me.

Thanks for all.

It's only special for being one of the earlier OpenGL compliant 3d accelerators (being geared for professional CAD and all). Other than that, there's really not much 'important' about it, other than cards with actual support from many games (3dfx, rendition, powervr), and in the context of OpenGL games of the era, the current WIP 3dfx emulation appears to handle them well so far.


Also most OpenGL games Permedia is best with work on modern systems, save for the extension list overflow bug which most modern video drivers correct by having a internal compatibility profile for them.

There is documentation on www.vgamuseum.info, only one bios works with 430vx.
