Tseng ET6x00 made one of the best price to performance ratio low/mid cost PCI
gfxcards ever made. They're highly suitable for forced system upgraders stuck
with no AGP slots, no need for 3D silliness, or money to waste on expensive
PCIx cards they have no use for. They also provide DOS support equalled only
by the lowly Trident chips that doesn't exist at even a minimalist level in
current chips. I still have about 8 ET6x00 in functional machines. So as to
Tseng, I object X8.
