Winsprint 1000i (5075)

   The SIMM socket is for program memory for the graphics proc. It is used by the graphic processor only, like for ACAD drawlists or so. The SIMM is NOT used as video memory.

This card does 256 colors under Win 3.1x (I've run it). Wish it did more....

   The SIMM socket will be for program memory for the graphics proc. It can be used by the graphic proc. only, like for ACAD drawlists or so. You can find these on various TIGA Boards like ELSA Gemini MC or Hercules Graphics Station MC too. 

U28-U35 Must be interleaved video memory. Look at the chip IDs.
U1- Artist GA123- I think this is the GPX.



Artist Crunbs
   In 1992, ARTIST Graphics introduced the GPX, the first combination 3D/Windows accelerator chip. In 1993, ARTIST introduced the WinSprint 1000i, the first image display controller with a scan range from VGA to 1600 x 1200 at a 76 Hz refresh rate. Imaging magazine named the 1000i its product of the year, recognizing ARTIST Graphics for introducing color to the document imaging market at an affordable price. Ed. I searched Imaging Magazine a while back- no hits on GPX, WinSprint, or anything relevant.
