Hey guys,

I know it won't be easy, but I'm completely serious about it: I want a Rampage.

Not any Rampage, a working sample. One of these famous Spectre cards in A1 revision that are said to be running. I've already asked Gary, but I can understand if he's not willing to sell his legend. Unfortunately I can understand anyone doing this. Your all are fans and collectors, it won't be easy at all.

I have a simple but "mighty" purpose in mind: testing this card. Since I'm editor at a quite big magazine and 3dfx fan for many years, I want to tell the world about this myth. The "goddess" V5 6000 is through, we know about the quality of this legend, but Rampage/Spectre still is a mystery. I just want to run some benchmarks and at least one DX8 demo on it!

This may sound crazy, but: If nobody is willing to SELL, maybe someone can LEND his working sample? Are there any sources to get one of these cards? I repeat: This is no joke.

Greetings from Germany,
Raff

PS: If anyone owns a WORKING Daytona card - that's a bit easier - it could get my attention (and money) too.

Not related to selling or buying, but I don't think you can run a DX8 demo on it since no Rampage that exists, has HW T&L. That was to be handled by a seperate chip called SAGE. And as far as I know, only Quake III Arena has been run on Rampage so don't get your hopes up on running any other game on it.

Thanks for your push.

I'm familiar with many details about Rampage/Spectre because I've done much research for an article. Unfortunately, the greatest problem is getting a card. Running and writing a DX8 shader in comparison is an easy task ... There are some more games running (see NextHardware for that).

But it seems that nobody is interested in providing hardware to clear some of Rampage's myth.
