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

Hi all!

Yet another day, yet another question, what was your first GPU? Mine was a Voodoo card, though we had PCs since the early 80s (I'm from 86)).

Looking forward to y'all's replies!

It was an old Invidia 5200 series AGP interface. I think it had either 64MB or 128MB of ram. Not DDR or anything special just VRAM. It was basically just plug and play. No overclocking software. Just drivers and if you had the right MOBO you could get temperature readouts but only in the BIOS which at that time looked like DOS.

I wish I could remember exactly 😂 When I was a kid we had a Commodore 64 and as a teenager had pre-made store bought PCs. Built my first PC in the early 2000s with an ATI Radeon but after nearly 2 decades I can't recall what specifically. 😅

Not exactly a GPU, but my Hercules graphics adapter was way higher res than the competing CGA card at the time. And with SimCGA I could still play all the games 🙂

 

After that my first actual graphics card was ATI (but I can't remember exactly which model)
