    Default ATi Mach 64 Vesa Local Bus 2MB video card (+ bonus 2MB memory module, possibly faulty)

    Hi everyone!

    I have for sale an ATi Mach64 VLB card.

    I think it's an ATi Graphics Pro Turbo VLB.

    Card is in great physical shape and works fine.


    At low res it shows faint vertical bands in some games on my LCD. I don't have a CRT to test it with.

    This picture shows the faint banding in SQ3. Look at the darker gray parts at the bottom, and the dark blue wall parts on the upper right. Also the score/title bar. The banding effect is the "wider" bands shows. The narrow almost-vertical banding shown in the lighter parts in the middle of the screen is a camera effect that is not visible otherwise.


    At higher resolutions it loooks absolutely great. Again, the narrow almost verical bands in the picture is a camera effect and not visible when looking at the screen.


    ***

    Please note: The extra 2MB memory module is possibly faulty. It tests alright in the ATi test program, but at resolutions and color depth higher than 1024x768 @ 16 bits there is graphical corruption.

    Unfortunately I don't have any other card to test it with, like the Mach64 PCI cards.

    Here are pictures of the card and testing results. The last pic shows corruption at a color depth which requires > 2MB memory.

    I'm asking for 350 300 250 for the card and memory module. Buyer pays Paypal fees and shipping costs.

    Prefer buyers in EU, but will explore options if asked.

    Shipping in EU is 20 tracked parcel.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

    Hm maybe your memory module is not compatible. Did you check the part numbers?
    I have the ISA version of this card and the module has 8 chips instead of 4
    (I know from the part numbers that ISA and VLB use the same module)

    Yes, this module is probably made for the PCI versions of the card. Unfortunately I don't have any Mach64 PCI card that uses this kind of external module, so I can't test it.

    It's kinda weird though that the module is detected and passes all the memory tests in the ATi test program, but when put to use in higher resolutions we get the graphical corruption.

    The module is just a bonus here, the card is sold as a 2MB card.

    If it is of any help, I sold this card not too long ago for quite a bit less than you are asking.

    It may help or it may not.
    Looking for my next fix

    Thanks, that might be the case. I'll keep lowering the price. Sooner or later someone will be interested.
