I have a Kyro 32MB PCI video card sitting here with no home and I was wondering if there are mac BIOS available for it? Or if it works or if anyone knows anything about this card?

It's a 3d Prophet 4000XT

You're better off going to Fleabay and paying 20-30 for a Radeon PCI card.
Ah good ol' Severn, MD. I used to live in Millersville. What does this have to do with graphics cards? Absolutely nothing.

The Kyro was a competitor to the NVidia and ATI offers back in the days of DX7 or so. The original went unnoticed, despite pretty good performance. The Kyro 2 however got a decent amount of recognition as it was definitely a competitor to the Geforce 2/ Radeons of that time. Hell I almost bought one but benchmarking showed a little less performance than a GF2, which I eventually bought.

At any rate, is there any sort of site that carries BIOS for flashing for any card really? I mean older AGP/PCI cards for PC are cheap and it may be worth trying to flash one of them if anyone knows how or where to get BIOS...es.
