    Please post a list of all graphics cards ever produced - so that I can check the ones that I haven't used.

    And go back to 1975, when I first used a computer with a graphics card.

    Who had that 3DFX card that came with an external power supply just before the company tanked and sold its patents to Nvidia?

    That was the Voodoo 5 6000. It was never officially released but plenty of pre production units are out there. Basically it was four VSA-100 chips stuck together on a single board and running in SLI. This was before the standardized internal graphics power connectors existed, so they opted for an external power supply to make things easy.

    The guy who won the GeForce naming contest was awarded the top of the range GeForce card for each new generation as long as the name continues to be used.

    I had some computers without even graphics, never mind the cards. Since 1977 though.

    I've most of the cards listed here, but I can't believe I'm the only one to use Trident so far. Oops, never mind, I see someone else DID list Trident.

    Also were the;

    Hercules Graphics Card
    IBM Color Graphics Adapter
    IBM Enhanced Color Graphic Adapter

    Too many to list but a couple of them stand out because I haven't seen them posted yet:

    Creative Labs 3D Blaster
    Canopus Pure3D

    Canopus was an interesting company. They took existing company's hardware, redesigned it, and packaged it with faster drivers. The Pure3D was an improved Voodoo2, and I think they had another one that was an improved Nvidia TNT.

    Canopus is still around but now they're called Grass Valley. I still occasionally use my Canopus ADVC 100, great product, especially back when it first came out.

    I also had a graphics chip called NeoMagic. It didn't have any 3D acceleration and was inside this Sony Vaio 505. The laptop was very thin and predates the PowerBook G4 but it ran so hot at 500mhz that I couldn't keep it in my lap. It couldn't even playback DVD at full frame rate over PCMCIA.

    How do you people even remember this stuff! There's some very detailed lists of some really old cards.

    I didn't even remember I had a Matrox Millenium until I saw it in the first post.

    My first card was some sort of CGA card in a 286 or maybe an IBM XT clone.

    No idea. It's like OSX. I can name the code names in order really quickly. Useless information.

    I didn't include computers I bought for one day and gave back to the store - dual G4 Power Mac Quicksilver, nMP base model, 13" rMBP '15
