IBM PC Color Graphics Adapter-CGA for the IBM 5150/5160

Dave's Vintage PCs brings you another rare find ...

You are bidding on a RARE, Tested IBM Color Graphics Adapter (CGA) for the IBM PC 5150 or PC-XT 5160.  This item is IBM P/N 1501486, 1501981, 1501982, 1501985, 6278550 or other equivalent IBM part number. 

The picture is of one of those we have available.  The one you receive may have slight cosmetic differences, but the quality will be the same.

This adapter was tested with a 5160 IBM PC-XT and 5153 Color Monitor Display and it flawlessly produced clear, great color graphics and easy-to-read text.  This shows you that it can support the specs that this original adapter claimed:

  • Up to 25 lines of upppercase and lowercase text with 40 or 80 characters/line
  • 16 foreground colors on any of 8 background colors
  • A black-and-white graphics mode
  • A medium-resolution graphics mode which when used with an IBM PC offerd one of two sets of four colors at a time (Each set includes three colors that may be used against a fourth background color). 
  • An 8 x 8 character matrix
  • Support for underlining, blinking, reverse image and high intensity

These video cards are getting harder and harder to find and these are in EXCELLENT condition. 

What you get:

  • IBM Color Graphics Monitor Adapter Card
