Mystery Card

I need some help getting some specs on this graphics card, the company who made it is now out of business so if anyone can help I'd appreciate it.

The chip info on the card is as follows:

Made by Number Nine Visual Technology

1st chip:
IBM 37RGB524CF22-A
26H2216
PALETTE DAC
19612001lF PQ

2cnd chip:
S3 Vision 968
IBJE3
86C968-P
9543 3420H32

Chips 3 through 6:
SEC
532A
KM4216C2586-60

Anyone have any info on this card?

Also one of the pins on the VGA pass through connector is broken off, will this stop the card from working?

This card is going back into a Pentium Pro system from way back when if it still works.

Thanks for the help guys/gals.

S3 Vision968 chipset was very popular back in 1995. Best thing is to check sonicblue.com [under legacy drivers] for generic chipset drivers for the vision968 chipset.

well, i can identify the 1st chip for you, it is the RAMDAC, basically what converts the digital image from the computer to the analog monitor. Chips 3-6 are the RAM. Like someone else said, look for drivers by the S3 Vision 968 chip, that is the GPU.

Thanks again for the info guys, I found exactly what I need.

Trying to OC or burnup this pentium pro system should be fun.

This is going to be my first experiment before building and over clocking the new system I'm putting together, I figured I'd get a feel for it using a older system to play with first, the best part is everything in the older system was free, so if it gets fried I'm not out of much.

Will let yall know how things turn out.
