Yes, we are aware that it's not just NVIDIA and ATI/AMD that's made discrete video solutions in recent years. To prove it, we haul out from our vaults three examples now returned to publication. First, the famed Matrox Parhelia, first consumer graphics card with a 256-bit memory bus, and for a brief period in 2002 quite the topic of conversation. Next, the SiS Xabre 400, to prove that 2002 was a nice year for non-big boys discrete solutions. Last, the S3 GammaChrome S18 Nitro from 2005.
