Re: Picking a sound card for a low-end 486

ESFM is definitely interesting. It sounds fairly close in most cases, but there are a few 'stand-out' differences: - The envelope noise effects tend to be MUCH more prominent and slightly harsher than genuine OPL3. - The tremolo/vibrato LFOs don't seem to oscillate at the same frequency as Yamaha …

Re: New sound card project: AWE64 Legacy

The YMF289B does not have I2S compatible output data, it's right justified. That said, I've seen a Gateway socket 5 motherboard with built-in ViBRA16S and YMF289B-S use a CS4333 DAC chip instead of the YAC516. The CS4333 has 2dB better dynamic range and slightly better stopband attenuation, but …

Re: Sound Blaster 16 Bugs and Deficiencies Summary

Apologies for reviving this ancient post, but I wanted to mention that the CT1703 series parts seem to be made by ROHM. Looking a little closer it seems Asahi Kasei might have also used ROHM as a fab/foundry, but I don't think the CT1703 is compatible with the CT1701. Also, it is possible to de-CQM …

Re: Sound Blaster 16 Bugs and Deficiencies Summary

Soem SB16 cards have the AK4501-VS DAC - how does it compare to the CT1701 and the various CT1703 chips? CT1701 = AKM AK4501-VS The CT1703 is speculatively an AKM AK4503-VS. This would need to be confirmed with decapsulation. I tried swapping a CT1701 on a SB16 SCSI board with a CT1703-T, and got …

Re: S3 805 86C805-P speed?

805/i/p cards tend to vary widely in speed and picture quality, depending on memory speed, BIOS and RAMDAC. The speed also varies depending on whether you are running it under DOS or Windows. DOS/Mode 13h performance isn't stellar by any means, but is often improved by switching it into zero- …
