    Actually, intel's first discrete graphics card was the i740 that also was the debut of the then brand new AGP slot. My earliest computer gaming was on a Real3D Starfighter i740 board. It had phenomenal image quality but just couldn't push the frames of the 3dfx offerings. Just shows how long I've been at this. 😎

    I got a feeling that nvidia will have some problems soon, I really think that rtx series will me more expensive then the gtx and it won t make a huge performance diffrence, then most probably amd will release a new decent gpu, and after all that intel might take another shot on gpus market

    Maybe you could switch the PCIe slot to force Gen1 in the BIOS to see if it helps?


    Linus, this was in May. Any update? Did you get it to boot at all? Have you talked with any of the engineers to see why it wouldn't boot?

    being a old architecture that card wold probably need a mainboard from the INTEL P4 to core QUAD era to boot. I have a i7 that boots old ATI cards and new generation AMD cards but my AMD FM2+ Motherboard will not boot old ATI cards for example. I'd use a classic intel system as being prototype it'd probably only work with its brand and era.

    It's probably not configured to run in gpu mode. You should try plugging in a normal gpu alongside it, boot linux, lspci, ip address and then try to telnet into that thing to find out what it's doing.

    Poor guy, felt bad at the end, so dissapointed.. "Just wanted the screen to light up, that's all I really wanted" So know how that feels when you're building and trying new things and it doesn't quite work. Especially with something like this and a rare piece of hardware like that.

    you should send the card to Buildzoid @Actually Hardcore Overclocking (or at the very least a high rez photo of the PCB front and back) to see if it looks legit and/or interesting (and if there's a chance to resurrect it!)

    they probably threw it in the dumpster knowing someone would pick it up and get them free publicity. or the seller made up the story and sold it per ebay's instructions. when investigating a crime or something always ask: who's to gain?

    Wesley P 12 days ago

    lol, why on earth did you expect it to run? the only cards that will run on any computer are cards that have been made to run on them. most likely intel had motherboards and BIOS catered to go with this card. it was never about drivers. the fact is that the boards dont even know what it is or why its there. (because it doesnt exist) and thus couldnt be accounted for by motherboard makers. your best bet would be to boot the pc with a normal gpu and then try to see if you can access the hardware within windows somehow. but most likely because of lack of drivers that wont work either. but if your "really" lucky some of the drivers of their descendant cards might work on it and it might function as a CPU card. just not a GPU card.

  • thatgo916
    thatgo916 12 days ago

    Lol this is funny I used to work in the embedded graphics debug lab next to the performance group testing these from 2008 to 2009.. By the way the reason you can't boot it is there are changes that need to be configured in the video bios before you can boot the system with that card.. Then there are specific drivers you need to make it work... I think I have intel's Bios modification program to edit the vbios and merge it with the system bios. Have to dig through my Google drive
