Thread: My video card collection's website - The Golden Era of 3D Acceleration

    Default My video card collection's website - The Golden Era of 3D Acceleration

    <o:p></o:p>Hi,

    Some of you might know me on here, some not.
    My name is Timber (or Tim for short) and Iíve been collecting video cards for quite some time now. Back in December I decided to make a website for my collection. Itís called The Golden Era of 3D Acceleration, and it covers all high end graphics cards from the very beginning of 3D in 1994, to 2003. The site contains many retail cards and also some very rare pieces of hardware, including prototypes.
    This is purely a hobby, Iím not a 3D professional in any way, Iíve just got a big passion for 3D acceleration, games, and the hardware that runs them.

    My goal is to keep this part of early 3D acceleration alive, sort of like a hardware museum if you like.
    I donít particularly like websites that are a work in progress, but I had to choose from either showing my collection already, or wait a long time for all the info on the cards to be completed.

    Please have a look, and let me know what you think of it, either on here, or via tga3dx@gmail.com

    The main picture gallery is under ďThe Collection Ė Golden EraĒ and then select the appropriate year.
