The TSENG 4000 ISA card is total win!. That was my first 'accelerated' graphics card, for a 486DX-25 system I had.

It even tolerated the ISA bus running at up to 16 mhz (2x) :)

Impressive that you have that :)

Tseng made some nice cards.  I was always curious what the ET6300 would be like when finally released, but we will never know.  They sold themselves off to ATI to cash in their investment.

wonderful post, very informative. I wonder why the other experts of this sector don't understand this. You should proceed your writing. I am confident, you have a great readers' base already!

Why would even want to have a raid bases SSD, if a single 840 Pro would be on most scenario's do the same or a better job?

I am looking forward to native based PCIe SSDs, but this ASUS RAIDR is just waste of money.

OCZ Z-Drive R5 is the product i looking for, only i properly don't think i would like the price of it.

But is the way i think SSDs should go.

Do you know if the potential frame rating fix for AMD cards will affect the 6900 series? I've had 2 6970s forever and there's only maybe 1-2 games where I actually even bother enabling the second one, because it usually doesn't make the experience any better.

I could see them not bothering to support an older generation of cards, but at the same time it seems crossfire would be something that is similar between the two generations.

I believe they eventually will.  This first driver was for 7000 series cards on Win 8, but it was very much Alpha.
