Summary
  • IBM's video graphics array (VGA) stimulates hardware manufacturers to produce similar VGA products. The makers can make their products compatible with a basic input-output system (BIOS), or make them register-compatible with a suitable BIOS. Software publishers prefer to write to video register boards to improve performance, but one board maker says this will change with the OS-2 requirement of BIOS compatibility. Paradise Systems first introduced a register level chip in Jul 1987 and expects to ship a BIOS-compatible chip in Oct 1987. By the end of 1987, Lotus 1-2-3 may provide at least partial support for VGA.
