CyberVision/BlizzardVision graphics cards?

Toni, will we expect WinUAE to add support for CyberVision and BlizzardVision cards?

I don't do do PC hardware emulation. It has Permedia 2 chip and there is no emulator or virtual machine that supports it. It is very complex chip, 3D stuff, very complex blitter and all, I checked the datasheet some time ago.

Cirrus Logic GD54xx series is one of the rare graphics chip series that are nearly fully emulated. (It was from QEMU)

That's a shame as it would be a way to run PPC/Warp3D programs but I can understand the complexity is an issue. I was always in awe of my A1200 BPPC/BVision combo, for it's time just fantastic bit of kit and all inside a wedge case!

100% no use at all. Each chip is totally different.
