anyone had any success flashing this card?
theres the original OEM mac radeon 7500 rom here:
http://themacelite.wikidot.com/wikidownloads2

OEM   Radeon 7500   222   AGP 2x/4x   270/200 MHz   32MB TQFP DDR   128KB
but that card is DVI/ADC i think?
just wondering how things work out on the DVI/VGA pc version of the radeon 7500 AGP!

The was a OEM Mac 7500, so the card is flashable.

right i know it SHOULD be flashable.. but i mean does anyone have any real world experience to confirm ?

re: OEM 7500; u mean the ADC/VGA version right? not this DVI/VGA version i posted above..

these are being blown out for $14 each at owc
according to this: https://eshop.macsales.com/item/ATI%20Technologies/1028342302B/
it was being bundled with a ADC-DVI adapter - but i guess they ran out of stock

according to the info at gpuzoo.com
the 7500 radeon was released around the same time as the 8500
which was in August 2001

I remember people were able to flash them, but I never flashed one myself.

By the time we figured out how to flash the full 128k Mac Rom to a PC card, ATI was shipping the 8500, and that was a far better card, so no one really cared about the 7500.
