What are these 'Header Pins' for?

Hi All, Hope you had a nice Christmas. What seems like a very long time ago I fitted a Nvidia Riva TNT2 model 64 AGP card. Yesterday when I was coupling up a front USB socket to the header pins on a USB 2 PCI card I noticed 2 rows of 13 header pins on the Nvidia AGP card making a block of 26 header pins. Curiosity getting the better of me now. What connects to these header pins? Cheers, Bill

I tried in vain to find the original manual of your card on the web[presumably you've mislaid yours] - a friend has suggested could it possibly be some sort of digital output connector for an LCD? Just speculation but otherwise we're stumped

It's known as a "feature connector" - for adding on extras to the graphics card. I've never actually seen any add-on "features" - which is why I think they've now generally dropped the use of them.

Thanks DieSse, curiosity over. Cheers, Bill
