First try to establish a consumer-card and standard for 3D-acceleration and the only 3D-accelerator for the Vesa Local Bus.

 

it's capable of 2D-acceleration in Windows or you could use it as a "plain" 3D-accelerator like a Voodoo later
(needs 2d card and similar connection like voodoo 1)
core is 3DLabs GameGlint - a trimmed down version of professional Glint 300SX
Memory is divided to 1 MB VRAM (framebuffer) and 1 MB DRAM (textures). Upgradable to 4MB.
