On ASH's web-site (


Von NVDI 5 gibt es genau eine Version, die auf allen Plattformen, also
Atari und MagiC (Atari/Mac/ PC) gleichermaßen läuft. Auch die
Atari-Grafikkarten (ET 4000, MatGraph und NOVA) werden unterstützt, ohne
daß man eine Spezialversion benötigt. Das neue
Installationsprogramm erkennt automatisch, welche Treiber auf dem
jeweiligen System installiert werden müssen.


There are NOVA-cards with ET4000, I wouldn't be surprised if NVDI5 only
supports these (remember, NVDI ET4000 has existed for ages, why would 2B
write a Mach64-driver now that these cards are unavailable?), and ASH
"forgot" to mention it...
