Elbox Dragon, myth or bonanza?

Looks like it exists after all, at least a prototype.

Opps, wrong forum...please moderate someone, lol

mmmm...big and masculine.

Maybe the 68k port of Quake II and Freespace will run faster on it than the PPC version...

These photos were posted, what, six months or more ago?

I have no problem with whenever it comes out but to ANNOUNCE a release date of January 2005 and then, one year later, nothing arrives, kinda seems a bit amateur to me.

I think the ACK card looks more like it will happen!

Hope it gets released but I have my doubts.
I'd rather buy the PowerVixxen, it looks more useful
