MEGA STE and graphics cards

Post by KyleB » Sun Aug 05, 2018 2:10 am

Just found someone selling VME ISA adapters for graphics cards. What I've noticed is with this sort of setup there seems to be 3 choices for card, either an ET4000, or ATI Mach32 or Mach64.

I can get either the ET4000 or the Mach32 easily enough. But which one works better?

ATI MACH64 do not work on a Mega STE, at the moment is it Atari TT only.

Isn't the new graphic modes what is interesting in case of this graphics cards for Ataris ? ET4000 should know true true color (16M), if I'm not wrong.
What will be for sure slow, but looks nice.
