The Magnificent Seven: GeForce3 Board Round-up

Video-In And Video-Out With Philips Chip

Philips is a fave-rave of graphics card manufacturers. Its SAA7108E isn't only used by Gainward but also by ASUS and MSI. The reasons for this are patently obvious - this module is designed to encode and decode video signals at the same time. Since space is at a premium on the slot bracket, Gainward decided to use a combination port for the video-in and video-out. Into this port you insert an adaptor (included with the board) that branches out into two cinch connectors and two S-VHS connectors.
