Is there a driver for Intel Extreme Graphis (845) for QNX Windows?

Hi,
I am also interested if anyone knows the answer to this.

More to the point, is there a list of graphics cards that work with
qwindows (the list on the qnx.com website only lists photon capable
hardware).

A list of graphics cards that can be purchased today.

As far as i know one would have to purchase basic VGA compatible hardware,
or a radeon chipset based card.
Has anyone out there had luck with gr.radeon graphics drivers? Please post
here if you have.

Hi..

We've had some success down here with the nVidia GeForce MX2 video cards,
using the SciTech driver (patch A). Only problem we've found is that on
large monitors (19" + CRT's), there is a long delay switching between text &
windows modes. Up to a minute sometimes on certain monitors.

Previous to this card, we were using the ATI Rage 128 Pro, with success.
But, it did exhibit the same fault on the text-windows side of things. This
fault doesn't seem to show-up on LCD/TFT monitors..

I'm also pretty intersted in the gr.radeon drivers & if anyone has had
success with these...

An additional footnote, does anyone know if Qwindows can handle more than
256 colours? if so, how do we go about setting qwindows/driver for this?

Cheers,
Nick

It works, but only with limited range of radeon cards 7500, 8500, 9000. It
is difficult to find such a card on our today's market, 7000 or VE does not
work.

Fortunately LCD monitors are preffered today a for them is refresh of 60Hz
fine, thus ordinary gr.vga is enough.

More on this: we are succesfully running the gr.radeon driver with the ATI
7500 PCI, problem is that its not an easy card to get anymore.

What about the list of current cards supported? Any at QNX could look into
this?

Thank you,

GC

none. gr.vesa2 or gr.vga with 60 Hz is maximum which you can achieve
nowadays, I think.
