VGA feature connector

A point-to-point channel used to transfer video signals between two video controllers, typically between the graphics card and a video capture or TV board. Using an 8-bit data path, it provides 40 Mbytes/sec bandwidth. The port is a 26-pin male connector or a 26-pin (13 per side) edge connector at the top of the VGA board. See VESA Advanced Feature Connector.
