This is the list of people and in future maybe also companies i'd like to thank for any donations they made. If you like the site and have some excess money or graphics card you don't need anymore, then your name might me here too. We are accepting money donations through paypal - these will be used for paying hosting and domains fees. Even more we like various graphics cards. Usually we must pay at last postage (to Czech Republic), so if you're not willing send them for free, then please offer only rare and unusuall cards. By rare i mean cards from 80's, TIGA and other various profi 2D cards, early 3D cards or not usuall ones, non PC cards, mobile chips used on cards with common interfaces (PCI, AGP, PCI-E), profi 3D cards and ofc any prototypes. Basically if theres missing card with chip you own, we're interested. And if only one collector have it, there's very high chance, that someone else want it too. Besides your nick/name i gladly show here also link to your personal or company site / store if you will be interested.
So far on site are these collectors - you can choose who will be lucky one getting your card/s.....
Palcal (Czech Republic, near Brno) - big fan of Diamond brand and TIGA based profi 2D cards. He's even collecting various revisions of Diamond. Sadly not having time for updating his HUGE collection, so only part is on site.
Zaatharen (Czech Republic) - mostly collecting 3D cards. But takes anything he's missing.
Pirx (Germany) - fan of miro brand cards and everything on VL-Bus + some highend ISA cards.
Pepino (Czech Republic, Brno) - likes most various rare 3D cards and everything older.
So BIG THANKS goes to these donators....

This is my latest project. Some people asked me about doing CPU tree, cause they liked graphics cards version. Well years passed and still noone did CPU version. So because i'm still unemployed (no IT work found in my area), i said myself lets do it. Anyone can help. This will be bigger project than graphics tree and i will need help for sure. Closer info and discussion can be found on CPU-World forums.
If you feel brave enough for helping, just choose your favourite CPU maker and tell us on CPU-World forum. Sample file for VUE editor can be downloaded in attachments. Will update also big version with all parts connected (you can start also by editing this bigger file) - can be downloaded here. Last updated full file size picture can be seen/downloaded here. If you dont like editing in VUE, you can still send text info about cpu and i will add them. So far these people are working on:
Vlask - everything except stuff that these people did:
achtung049 - Compaq, DEC, HP.
henriok - PPC/POWER.
Tralalák - VIA.

Initial price at time of release of card. Highest price for best model (maximum memory, added various modules..). Chipsets and mobile variants have price for 10 000 chips (without memory and other parts).
These articles will show charts made from data in articles. They're loaded from database, so mistakes might happen if some author used wrong numbers or table row in card article. All values are theoretical and apply to reference models of cards. It's impossible for me add there various submodels like over/under clocked cards or with various memory bus width. Don't like empty article here, so we start with number of transistors chart.
Graphs require flash. If you don't see them, then you can download image in attachments. Image can by also saved by right click - then Save/convert chart to image. Chart will be replaced by PNG image.
