Victor VPC 2

The image is clickable

198?.

A rather interesting Victor machine with the advanced EGA screen. Not a CGA, which was more usual. With a 16-bit bus to the Intel 8086 processor, not a 8-bit bus to the Intel 8088 processor, which was the usual standard. With some slots with 16-bit bus in which only the included "grafic card" fitted, not the one that came later in the AT computers. The video card was only supporting text, not graphics. Socket for the math processor 8087 was included.

Is there any errors? e-mail and correct me!
