The Image-I Adapter/A is a high-resolution adapter, capable of driving displays up to 230 MHz, with a maximum screen addressability of 1600x1280 pixels. It is available in 3MB only. It is ISO (International Organization for Standardization) enabled. The Image-I Adapter/A supports only ISO refresh rates, it does not support non-ISO displays.

The Image-I Adapter/A can be installed in all IBM PS/2 system units except portable models. ISO-enabled IBM display types are 6091-016, 6091-19i, 1091-051, 4517 and the 9504 Monochrome Display. These displays conform with industry and government standards, such as ISO standard 9241/3.

The display attached to the Image Adapter can show VGA graphics only if the adapter is installed in the AVEC slot. Ideally, the Image Adapter should be installed in the AVEC slot unless this slot is already in use (e.g. with an 8514/A Adapter).
