Accelgraphics Eclipse PCI

Unread postby zahal » Thu Jan 15, 2015 5:31 pm

Came upon a working Accelgraphics Eclipse PCI, but finding the drivers seems like finding a needle in a haystack.
I plugged into a Win98 box (since the card is from that era), but I only get limited VGA.

Does anyone know if W2k includes the drivers, or if there is a link to them?

The card is full length, with a daughterboard and a populated DIMM slot. Seems to be the 32MB versión that came with high end Alpha workstations.
Sitting in a room.....thinkin' shit up. :evil:

There are only NT drivers:

I've had one, with unpopulated DIMM slot (it's CD-RAM as far as I can remember). Crashed NT during boot on my 164LX Alpha as soon as I've installed drivers.

Thanks for the link. Installed in the Win98 box and could not get it working other than basic settings.
I'll try on W2k when I get my VW320 running.

I have one of these cards. Is there something interesting about it?

Edit: Yeah, I've got one with the 16 MB DIMM.

It seems they've disabled anonymous access - unfortunately that's happening to often recently. I might have somewhere a mirror of these files.

IMO anything from Evans+Sutherland is interesting.
