Hi guys

I was just wondering, Ive got a Zorro busboard in one of my A1200s with a CV64/3d card installed.

Is a Mediator with a PCI gfx card going to be faster than my current setup?

The busboard I have is a Z4 busboard. Im not looking to buy (maybe, but not yet), Im just curious :)

Using a Voodoo or Radeon 9200/9250 with a MediTator busboard will draw circles around most original video cards from the Amiga era.

The only exception is the BVision, which is fast enough to compare to the mentioned cards. But it heats more than the Voodoo 3!

Plus if you go Mediator you have access to cheap USB/Network/Sound solutions =)

I've just setup a Mediator and Voodoo 5500 and I'm really inpressed (y)

Isn't the CyberVisionPPC equivalent to the Bvision? I thought they were the same hardware just a slightly different interface to facilitate connecting it to a BlizzardPPC... Please correct me if I'm wrong, I just was always under that impression.

You're right mate. Same hardware in different design.
