Oh yes, I didn't mean to imply the Freedom was the only beefy 3D card
for it. I know IBM had their own 3D pipe around that time (1992) that
they had for it. However, since I worked on the Freedom, its kinda
dear to me :-).
Speaking of Freedoms, if anyone comes across host interface cards or
host software for Freedom accelerators, no matter what the host bus --
HP, Sun, IBM -- please let me know! I've got some accelerators here,
but no host adapters or software.
