This is one of my latest projects. Finally its ready to be released. Its not final, but you'll find there most famous graphic chips makers. Others will be added later. If you know about any card missing in one of the trees, let me know in comments. But link there some prove of existence too, because i found many cards written on wikipedia with no sign of their existence (probably never released - many of them made by Cirrus). If you really want to have here new branch with you favourite maker, then you can send too whole tree info, and i will add it faster. Whole image is too big, but smaller fonts will be not readable. So sorry to people with really small monitors. You have to scroll more. Direct link to image in full resolution and colors is here. Added also more optimized smaller version (less colors, 50% resolution) - 1,5MB size is here. You can try also webgallery version by clicking on image (now it opens smaller version). I will try to keep also some kind of version info about updates.
If you have really big wall, you can print it also on Plotter - many companies do this for anyone. Usual limit on most machines is 160cm height. I got recently one print too and put it on wall in company i work for. Dimensions are 152x328cm without some more blank space around. It looks great.
Recently thanks to Stiletto i got many more documentation about various graphic chips, including unreleased ones. Since i don't have any of those prototypes (and don't think it change - im not so rich to buy any), i put info about these cards here.
