ARK Logic ARK2000PV


PCI video card from ARK Logic based on the ARK2000PV chip.

The ARK Logic ARK2000PV uses true 64-bit display memory with a 64-bit graphics engine to get you all of the advantages of PCI and VESA interfaces. It also integrates a super VGA controller, and a high-speed interface circuit that will relieve the heavy processing load on the CPU ... allowing greater performance.
