Default Re: [5900xt] text modes

>> i have switched from gf2mx400 to 5900xt.

Having dabbled in this area recently, I believe that it is actually the video card BIOS, not the graphic chipset that determines the directly available text modes. It appears that most vendors copy a standard BIOS from somewhere (NVidia reference ?), but some vendors (e.g ASUS) make more changes than others.

Not much help, eh
