    Ultimate goal has always been some crazy prototype version of an infamous video card.

    Would be awesome to source out a card in this form or a little later and closer to physical reality. Anyone ever come across any big emulators like Cadence Palladium or an ancient tossed out IKOS box?


    I mean in the video gaming world people have uncovered Beta versions of games on Dev Carts or Dev Discs... so it's not entirely impossible...


    Here's the NV30 being emulated on an IKOS box:

    A prototype ... never seen another picture of it before...
