Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

That is interesting. From my previous testing in the aforementioned thread: PNY GeForce2 MX400 64MB Win95c NVIDIA Detonator v12.41 for Am5x86, however I was unable to get Direct3D working (e.g. Outlaws, MDK). OpenGL works with the Am5x86 with v12.41, however Direct3D games will require a POD. NVIDIA …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

Gonzo, I am curious about your Quake II result at 180 MHz. I thought 16.5 fps sounded a tad high, so I ran some tests on my Am5x86-180 system (m919) with a Voodoo2 card (800x600x65K) and acquired the following: DOOM = 75.22 fps Quake DOS = 21.1 fps GLQuake = 29.8 fps Quake II (GL) = 11.4 fps By way …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

gonzo, I think pshipkov is referring to using a cheap buck regulator, like that shown here: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?p=1248220#p1248220 , to run the CPU off the 12 V power supply, then have the voltage stepped-down using the buck regulator. You can see what I did in the above link to run …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

Gonzo, I did compare some faster 486's as part of my 686 benchmark run. However, Quake2 in OpenGL mode is run with a much slower Matrox G200. IBM 5x86c-133/2x and Am5x86-133 results are present. https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?p=293864#p293864 For GLQuake (not Quake 2) scores on a Voodoo with …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

To your point about running the tests with some FAST dram timings ? Was that because DOOM didn't work with FASTEST, or some other reason ? The fastest settings are: DRAM Read Wait: Fastest DRAM Write Wait: Fastest Cycle Check Point: Fast Slow Refresh: 120uS VL Device Ready Sync Mode: Bypass AT bus …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

A few results from the Daewoo AL486V-D "ALi Panda" with SXL2-80 I wanted to dump. I don't think these have been posted elsewhere yet. This board is a little fussy with VLB graphics cards at 40 MHz FSB. AHA-1522B SCSI ISA. ESS ES1868 ISA sound. STB PowerGraph 64V (replica), based on Trio64V+ …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

BitWrangler, I must have missed that wiretap link. I'll read it in more detail when I have time. Looks like we programme the frequency via an I2C header. This path is the way to go as it offers more control. Seems like more PLL's are abandoning the hardcoded multiplier values for this I2C …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

The Panda also doesn't like the Trio64V+ VLB card. I'm using the S3 968 VLB replica card now and will run through all my VLB cards. Currently testing with only one VLB card installed, HDD I/O thru ISA SCSI. Slightly better luck with graphics in the VLB slot nearest the PCB edge. Plan on taking the …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

it will be good to present a few more of the standard tests, so the outcome is more convincing. I know. Already spent many hours getting these results and didn't want to go any further right now. I'll likely revisit this if or when I get 256K working on my C&T board. More interesting for me right …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

I decided to re-run some tests on the PEM-4036YB (Symphony Haydn-II) and Chaintech 340SCD (SiS Rabbit) for FSBs <=40MHz. I am utilising the fastest possible 386-class CPU upgrades, TI SXL2 and IBM BL3. I no longer have any loose GD-5434 cards, so I'm testing with a Tseng ET4000/w32i. As such, the …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

Running ISA at 33/2 = 16.676MHz. Thanks for clarifying. Sounds like the 4036YB would be even slower still than the SiS Rabbit with matched ISA speeds and the BL3-100. I thought we talked about baseline setup with 386DX. My recollection was the 386DX baseline discussion was only for the SCSI bench …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

Symphony Haydn with IBM BL3 running at 100MHz (3x33), all BIOS settings on max, produces 20.7 fps in Doom, which is half a frame slower than SiS Rabbit. SiS Rabbit is clock-to-clock faster than Symphony Haydn with IBM BL3 processors, but slower with DLC/SXL2 and 386DX. So, the results are inverted …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

Those test results are with a 386DX. I could be remebering incorrectly, but I thought the SiS Rabbit was more optimised for a BL3 than the PEM is. However, your answer suggests that the PEM board is still clock-for-clock faster than the Rabbit w/BL3? Do you have these DOOM numbers? For those Panda …
