The Cybervision PPC is designed to connect to the local PCI expansion bus found on the Cyberstorm PPC, and Cyberstorm Mk-III accelerators. It is one of the most powerful native graphics cards for the Amiga and has a pixel clock of 230Mhz (8bit), 230Mhz (16bit), 145Mhz (24bit) and 100Mhz (32bit). It has hardware support for 80 million textured pixels/sec. Hardware functions for Z-Buffering, Gouraud Shading, Fogging, Blending and Anti-Aliasing. It also has a special connector for the use of 3D glasses which allow you to see "life-like" 3D. The card is rather an odd shape, sort of rectangular but being tapered at one edge. It has two connectors on it to attach it to the PPC board. Which one you use depends on whether it is going in an A3000 or A4000. Note, you can not use draggable screens with this card, even if you have that option selected within CyberGraphX, and there is also no provision for a scandoubler, flickerfixer or passing native video. It does however have support for "patching" the system to allow it to display the native graphics.
