Re: Age yourself - your first GPU? I'll go first

Ha!  You're all just babies!  Mine was whatever was installed in a Burroughs mainframe in 1979!  My first PC was a Radio Shack MC10 with 16 KB of memory...

Re: Age yourself - your first GPU? I'll go first

You obviously didn't read my post you young whipper snapper!  I was using the LA City Schools HP 2000 on a teletype at our high school in 1973.  I was a member of the San Fernando Valley Computer Club long before the Trash-80 came out and already had outgrown my KIM-1 Commodore computer and moved on to an S-100 Bus Z80 system, which I later upgraded to a Seattle Computer Products 8MHz 8086.

Re: Age yourself - your first GPU? I'll go first

I think i replied ot this before saying my first dedicated gpu was a 1 meg and then a 2 meg ATI Vesa Local Bus Mach32....so way before amd scooped up ATI...but when i think about it again my first real computer that had a seperate graphics adapter was a Compaq portable suitcase computer.....it had a green screen built in and 2 5 1/4" floppys...a 50 meg....yes.....meg....harddrive....and the graphics adaper was HUGE!! i was able to jerry rig it into my first 386 to use it! Of course i had to turn both machine on their sides and turn them both on at the same time i should have taken a pic1024px-Compaq_portable.jpg....wow...the memories! LOL I could have blown something up! It sounded like a jet starting up!! And man was the HDD loud!

Re: Age yourself - your first GPU? I'll go first

Well consumer graphics cards came out in the 90s, before that graphics were integrated on the mainboard (old motherboard name) and soldered in place. I have used S3, ATI, Diamond, Nvidia, Voodoo and Cirrus Logic cards. I guess the S3 Savage 4 ( PCI ) was one of the first I have used. I think I still have a few PCI Video cards. A long time ago in a galaxy far far away...

Your first graphics card - any tips? I'm the first to try it

Hello!

On AMD's All in Wonder Pro. I guess it was the most powerful processor back then. The motherboard I was using was an ASUS. Gigabytes were unheard of back then.

Everything was measured in megabytes. I remember when Bill told us we wouldn't need more memory than 640k.   😀

Re: Age yourself - your first GPU? I'll go first

AMD Radeon HD 7970 CF was my first graphics card. We thought this post would make us feel elderly and nostalgic.
