Hi!

I just opened some new ebay auctions:

First  is a (prototype? of) Zorro III grapics card for the Amiga 3000. At least thats what is printed on the PCB. I do not know which card it is (I did not find it in the HW-database or the big book of Amiga hardware). I do not even know if it is working.

handbook Amiga 500, original Commodore

So have a look:

Shipping is worldwide (from Germany), auction is beginning at EUR 1,-.

ending this sunday are a lot of other interesting Amiga items

Regards

Well, I have quite some Amiga-items, but I do not really know what exactly it is. Maybe look at the pictures yourself:

Well, it’s clearly from a German developer. How did it come into your possession originally?

Hi,

it's a Rainbow III. The Inmos-GPU is missing on yours.

Like the previous Rainbow III sold at http://forum.amiga.org/index.php?topic=75521.0 (eBay #224887231955) which was also missing the GPU.

@hese7, Michael_D: are you sure? The card looks similar, but not identical.

100% certain it is a Rainbow III.
You just have a slightly different revision of the card compared to the ones found at Amiga Hardware Database or BBOAH.

So it may be a prototype?
