I remember the first card nVidia ever put out.. the NV1, which was a PCI video card plus an audio card plus wavetable synthesizer plus game controller board.  At the time, all of these functions were handled by several different add-on cards, and certainly not via the PCI bus.  That technology was way ahead of its time, […]
