@Oldsmobile_Mike,

Still would be nice to have a killer fast FPGA acell on a ZII machine with a PCI slot off the edge for a good Graphics card, 128MB maybe. And leave the ZII for other old stuff. Dream mode off...

By the way, how much graphics mem and what is the bus speed of the vampire?

Well, your English is still better than my Polish, but wtf does a bureau have to do with this sentence?


"I'm passing, on bike, in front of a house, where this guy's bureau apparently is, quite often, but (I) hestitate to bother (him), especially (since) I have nothing to contribute, except good wishes."

Better?

I assume by "bureau" he means "where this guy's company is" or "where he works", or something along those lines.  But over here a bureau is one of these:

Mike, since you are in DC, I suggest you visit the FBI headquarters and ask them what a bureau is.

Since this card has an FPGA it could be re-purposed as something else and the HDMI connector could be treated as a breakout for whatever connectivity you could fit to it's 19 pins.

A little.
You are close enough to ride your bike past his home or office, but you hesitate to stop as you do not want to bother him.

Sorry for my confusion.

...  But then you're still going to hit the limitations of the slow speed of the bus, and with newer accelerators like the Vampire going to include built-in graphics anyway, it's unlikely we'll ever see a truly "maxed out" Zorro II video card.  ;)

just curious but what about Zorro III speeds/limitations?

Ultimately you are cpu bound no matter what bus you use with a 68K.

Still like 9349057398547x faster than Zorro II, haha.  ;)

*I know that's not an approximate number.  I'm sure some smart-ass will come along and say exactly what the performance difference is, but I can't remember and can't be bothered to google it right now, lol.  :lol:

but a 68000 varies from a 68060

I found this discussion from 2007.  It's worth reading the whole thread.

RTG cards vary in ZorroIII speed between about 10 MB/s to 18 MB/s, CV64 being the fastest afaik. My PIV did probably 12 - 14 MB/s.

Yes, the 68060 is the beast of the family.
