SE/30 + Portrait Display?

Hi all, first post! I've recently acquired a recapped stock SE/30, and have been reading all the crazy mods available for it tonight. One thing I'd really like to do is hook my Portrait Display up to it one day, but I haven't had much luck understanding which SE/30 cards are likely to be compatible so I can set search alerts for them. Often any models I google list 640x480 at various colour depths but I don't find any that list any portrait resolution support at greyscale. Except some Radius ones but it seems like those might be for specific Radius brand monitors.

Is there a known list of display cards for an SE/30 that would support an external Macintosh Portrait Display? Especially supporting Bolle's new Ethernet/accelerator combo card.

Preferably with the standard Macintosh connector as I am hoping to locate an OEM 13W3 to Mac cable, or I have one with the right connectors but wrong pinout I may break open and rewire.

The Macintosh Portrait Display is compatible with anything that can drive the 75Hz Radius FPD. As far as I know that's
The only cards that would come to mind are either the SE/30 (1) or IIsi (2) variants of the Radius Color Pivot card.
For the SE/30 a grayscale Radius Pivot card (3) exists as well. I can't remember from the top of my head if that one also outputs 75Hz, but I think it does - so it would be able to drive your display as well.

Thank you, that's perfect. I'll set up search alerts for these and hope for the best! And I reckon I'll order your combo card cause ethernet would be nice as well. Cheers.
