New exhibits for our Hardware Museum: Matrox PG-1281 graphics card
Maxim Polyansky from Saint-Petersburg sent us a real rarity Matrox PG-1281 graphics card:
Made in 1987 (!), this full-size ISA EGA card has 1.5 MB memory (uber capacity for that time), of which 1MB is located on PCB, while 512 KB is located on a daughterboard.
The product was initially designed for professional CAD projects and was optimized for Unix.
Maxim told us that the card was working in an Olivetti machine, from which it was taken out.
