Re: Supersocket 7 (MVP3) and AGP video

For whatever it's worth, I remember installing a Matrox driver for the G200 that added support for multiple desktops (as often seen on Unix GUIs). That was on Windows 2000 though, no idea if they did that under Win9x. That was a very long time ago. Much more recently I installed a driver for a G400 …

Guillemot Maxi Sound 64 Home Studio

I recently got a Maxi Sound 64 Home Studio sound card. On paper it seems like almost a little brother to the mighty Terratec EWS64, using the same SAM9407 chip. I've been trying to add a SIMM module to it, but regardless of which module I am trying (FPM, EDO, 4MB, 16MB) it doesn't seem to register …

Cache and "Alter ram"

I have a SiS471 based 486 motherboard. This has the regular cache setup with 8 sockets for cache + 1 socket for tag ram. There is also a marking on the PCB for another socket, and according to the manual, the board requires an Alter RAM for write-back caching. But going by the fact that the BIOS …

I've noticed that the AT&T PrecisionDAC (ATT21C498) is pin-compatible with the STG1700. I know that the AT&T was commonly used by …

Re: Advice about retro speakers

I think one of the major changes that has happened is in the choice of colours used. If my Gigaworks T20's were beige, you could almost have believed they were retro. Their form factor is roughly similar to my Rolands. Also, if you can find a pair of Roland MA-12's, they supposedly sound really good …

Re: Advice about retro speakers

The big questions is this: What kind of sound do you want? If you're after having the best possible sound, then you should avoid pretty much any genuine retro speakers. I have a pair of Roland MA-7 for my 486, and although they are better than probably 90% of the "beige 90's pc speakers" out there, …
