The following table lists all Sun boards (from the SSH) I could remember, used in the 90's (<2000) with resolution support >= 1600*1200 px Product ; Bus ; Resoluti...

Re: Sun CG12 / GS aka Matrox SG3-1152B graphics accelerator for 3D solid applications

Interestingly, my SM-1024 has an 'EGA in' DE-9 male connector and a 'VIDEO OUT' female DE-9. So it can possibly be used as a pass-thru for something else? VGA passthrough? What did use this extra hardware, and what API's were employed for the job? applications like AutoCAD, Microstation under DR- o...

Re: Rumors of Oracle ending Solaris development

Base subscription for 3 years with Sun only € 830 (1 socket). After Oracle bought Sun the prices had near tripled. Nice pricing policy, isn't?
