For Quake, Athlon XP @1.8Ghz with IBM VGA (~8 fps rollup frame rate) is slower than 68060 with AGA. AGA can support full-motion video e.g. Time Gal laser disc port.

VGA/SVGA clones can be faster when compared to IBM's original VGA.


Which card? I had a Tseng Labs ET 4000 and that thing was fast.


IBM's original VGA card connected to Athlon XP 2200+ (1.8 Ghz), Soltek SL75-KAV (Via KT133A), 512MB SDR CL3. Soltek SL75-KAV includes a single ISA slot. https://www.vogonswiki.com/index.php/Soltek_SL-75KAV

I also have Tseng Labs ET 4000 via my Dad's ATM.

1995 saw the opening of Escom in my local town. I walked into the store expecting Amiga stuff and was greeted with a shop assistant keen on selling me a PC. In those days the only information I received about the platform was through the magazines. And the mags were getting thinner and thinner and thinner. The Escom saga just cemented the Amiga fate for me. I so wanted to carry on but I needed a CD as standard and graphics that supported the internet. The only way to achieve this was by towering and I wasn't about to destroy my beloved 1200.

....(cut for space)



For my Amiga 3000/030, I purchased an external SCSI CD-ROM drive from the Apple Mac market.

My Amiga 3000/030 was also running MacOS 68K. After the Amiga, my decision not to replace the Amiga with the MacOS PPC hardware platform is mostly due to the Motorola factor. My 1st Apple hardware product purchase is an iPad and I didn't like the "walled garden".

My Amiga 1200 and TF1260 were purchased during 1st wave COVID-19 lockdown.
