Appian Graphics Hurricane
AKIBA is reporting that the Appian Graphics Hurricane has hit Japan. Appian Graphics may not be a name that is widely known to most people but they have a long history of producing dual display video cards. The Hurricane is something of an oddity in that it is based on the ATi Radeon VE but utilizes a completely different VGA BIOS and device driver. In fact, one store tried to use ATi's drivers for it and it did not work. That should make the reviews interesting reading. The 32MB AGP card features VGA and DVI connectors; a PCI version is also planned. Pictures are here, here, here, here, here, and here.
