Stuart Tyrrell Developments' graphics accelerator was unveiled today as a RiscPC podule card "designed specifically for RISC OS 6" with 32MB of on-board VRAM, some hardware acceleration and desktop resolutions including 1680x1050 in 16 million colours. The video chip is a SM500-series device from Silicon Motion - as found in the A9home and predicted here first. The card uses a "more advanced version" of the A9home's SM501 video driver. It's also a pure graphics card with no other interfaces, such as USB and networking found in its predecessor, the Unipod. And it costs 149 quid. More updates here
