Project VGA Hopes To Ship Next Month

,----[ Quote ]
| Michael Meeuwisse of Project VGA, which spawned from the Open Graphics 
| Project for creating a truly open-source graphics card, announced today at 
| FOSDEM 2008 that next month he hopes to ship the first of his prototype 
| graphics cards. However, before you get your hopes up, this is a very low-end  
| graphics card. The current Project VGA board has 16MB of SD RAM, Xilinx 
| Spartan 3 s400 FPGA under 100MHz, and uses the PCI bus.

| This project is on the basis that a GPU should not end up with
| tons of propriatary software or hardware, containing hidden
| problems that aren't mentioned to the press, and yet cause

| The OGP grew rapidly after I first started it, and it's continued to
| grow gradually since then. Now, we have Traversal Technology and also
| the Open Hardware Foundation that's dedicated to the non-profit,
| community, and democratic aspects of the project. Our mailing list has
| over 500 members, including well-known Linux kernel hackers, 3D graphics
| experts, college professors, representatives of many other open
| source projects, hardware designers, and people who want to become
| hardware designers.
