OGD1P is the correct name
Informally, we refer to the first product as OGD1, but the official name is OGD1P, and the full product name for the primary model is OGD1P-256DDAV.

is it dead??
Is the project dead?? There has been no activity on their project website since September 2010. http://wiki.opengraphics.org/tiki-index.php The cost of the board is astronomical $720. It took them 6 years to design it which means the technology it uses is obsolete. These days you can get a single FPGA that can do both the PCI bus interface and the video generation for about $35 qty 1, add some DACs at $8 each + memory (256mb on 1 chip $10), and you've got yourself a video board for less than $100. Their board is estimated to cost $400 just for parts. They are also trying to raise $2 million for an ASIC, but these days FPGAs are so cheap that an ASIC does not appear to make much sense. Sadly, they need to start over with modern parts and a 6 month time frame, they already know how to do it, which was the hard part, now they just need to make version 2, but nobody seems to be home over at their website. -- old codger, 184.108.40.206 (talk) 19:20, 20 October 2011 (UTC)
