    Hi guys,

    I have rather extensive collection of old Pro graphics card and I have decided to clean up my storage room a little so I am giving it away. Preferably all at once to someone in SF Bay area so they could pick it up - it is in big plastic box.

    Here is the list
    - E&S AccelGalaxy
    - Accelgraphics AccelEclipse
    - Accelgraphics AccelPro TX
    - Elsa Gloria L/M
    - Elsa Gloria XXL
    - Dynamic Pictures Oxygen 102
    - Dynamic Pictures Oxygen 202
    - Dynamic Pictures Oxygen 402 (anybody see a pattern here?)
    - Diamond FireGL 1
    - Diamond FireGL 1000 (Permedia)
    - Diamond FireGL 4000
    - Omnicomp 3Demon
    - Kubota Graphics 32ZPCI - this is somewhat of a rarity, it is a very early accelerator card, Gouraud+Z only and it connects to your 2D card using VGA cable, kind of like Voodoo1.
    - Unknown 3DLabs card (Oxygen GMX?)
    - Intergraph GLZ1
    - Intergraph GLZ2 - some reworks and resistors missing ;-(
    - Intergraph 3D Pro 2200S
    - Intergraph 3400 (PCI)
    - Intergraph VX113 3410 (AGP)
    - Intergraph Intense3D Wildcat 3510 (AGP)
    - Intergraph Lynx 4 (2 of them, vertex accelerator)
    - Intergraph Lynx III
    - Intergraph Lyns II
    - Intergraph Realizm II

    All of these cards work (probably except GLZ2), most of them require NT, and of course finding drivers is going to be nightmare.

    Here is how it looks:

    So, any takers?

    I would love that. But I live in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

    I think there is like one manual ;-)
    And no drivers.

    For years I wanted to document, take photographs and put this collection online, but of course I was too lazy to do that. Hopefully someone here interested in 3D graphics and history will make use of it.

    Plus, this will give you winning argument in all B3D discussions about 3D cards history ;-)

    That is a bit of a drive, but if he doesn't mind ;-)
    I'm in Sunnyvale, ask him and let me know, I will PM you details. And we can agree on time, like this weekend maybe?

    One option is the computer history museum in mountain view. I don't know what they have as far as graphics cards but I'd imagine they would be interested in them.

    Oh yeah I would rather it go to the computer history museum than over to my house actually. I will wait to see if they contact you dominik.

    Rys has quite a collection of old cards --he might be interested in taking that off your hands and paying the postage for you to ship it to him. Or he might be able to get a friend in the area to pick them up and then ship them.

    Yeah, I'd love to add the boards I don't have to my collection (adding these would take it v.close to, if not over, the 100 board mark). If you're honestly happy giving them away, and Aaron's idea isn't appealing, I'd certainly cover shipping to the UK at the very least.

    We have a volunteer to pick them up in Sunnyvale and ship to the UK if you want to avoid the hassle, dominikbehr.

    I have filled the form on Computer History Museum website and I am waiting for their reply.
    In their automated reply they say the should give answer within 1-2 weeks.
    It would be really cool if the museum accepted this stuff but they are kind of picky.
    If they decline, then we should probably grow Rys'es collection

    I'll defer to the museum (hell, I should donate some of my own collection to it), but I'd be over the moon if they don't get back to you and it comes my way. It's about time I worked on some software to get the collection visible online in a cool way.

    I was repacking the antique graphics board boxes into a more compact (well, theoretically) form today... bloody hell, there's a lot of S3 cards in there.

    Yay!
    The Museum has accepted the donation!
    I will be driving there tomorrow to drop it off.
    I feel warm and fuzzy inside ;-)
