PowerComputing: fascinating experiments in hardware design

I just ran across this auction and was immediately intrigued: PCI/Video Riser Card

Putting the PCI based ATI RAGE II Graphics implementation on the riser offers interesting upgrade options for System Level Graphics output for the "Built in Video Connector" on the MoBo connector I/O Row.

I've got all of the auction pics to host when the auction disappears.

Has anyone got the PowerComputing PCI/NuBus Riser or good pics of one to post?

I've got the Nubus/PCI card in a  PowerWave 604/150.  I don't have any clear pictures of it, since it's actually installed and running, but applefritter has some kinda blurry pics

Re: PowerComputing: fascinating experiments in hardware design

I have one of those in my dead PowerBase 200.

No pictures, though, but me having it at least allows for the possibility of me getting some smile

Re: PowerComputing: fascinating experiments in hardware design

Fascinating way of doing things... It seems PowerComputing were thinking different long before Apple coined the slogan.
