Re: Raspberry Pi 4 clone with x86 basis

in Milliways
Interesting having both x64 Win and Linux freedom to install compared to the usual arm SBC but beside I don't like the UEFI bios concept, the solution would be nice for a modern light desktop replacement. Maybe not for retrogaming.. as I tested with Win 8.1 even 32bit version with old games it was …

Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
It probably have to do with both the modern o.s. and the game engine not well optimized as other games heavier than this. It's because it's running on a lazily ported Xbox codebase, on a extremely bad fork of the Unreal Engine. (known as Unreal Warfare) There's really nothing that can be done to …

Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
I'm sort of trying to play Thief Deadly Shadow (3) but it's a very strange game to run at a good frame rate in modern o.s. I've tried modern patches but the games always seems to run not smooth even if the Geforce 210 PCI I'm using beside a very low end card should eat that game. I've tried Win8.1 …

Re: PCI Latency Timer info

Thank you for the answer. Unfortunately I don't know how to monitor or check the real speed of the chipset > gpu connection considering there're two bridges in the middle. This is an industrial mainboard and the only way I had to push the system speed was to install a modern low end video card. At …

PCI Latency Timer info

Hi, considering I'm using a PCI modern Geforce 210 card on a mini-itx board having a single PCI old type bus that use an Intel PCI bridge on the chipset to connect it to the native PCI-EX1 (no reason why they did that when a better faster native PCI-EX1 bus would have been possible) and the vga …

Re: GT520 PCI compatibility

I got less than 5600 points on a Geforce 210 PCI and a dual core Atom with Win 8.1 but I suppose these old bench and modern gpu simply aren't somehow comaptible to be rendered in the way and speed they were intended to like on older o.s. and on older GUI. For example things get even worse with …

Re: Radeon 9250 vs GF 6200 vs FX 5200 for Win98?

The only thing that I wonder is how much the 6200 faster card would stress the PCI bus power wattage considering the other PCI cards that were usually installed into an old system maybe three or four PCI connectors?. The FX 5200 I'm trying already seems to require all the 25W limit measuring the …

Re: Radeon 9250 vs GF 6200 vs FX 5200 for Win98?

Lately I'm trying the FX 5200 PCI (256MB 128bit) but on a modern Win 8.1 and forcing Vista drivers. It works I suppose cause already written for the WDDM 1.0 driver model and to make things more difficult I'm using a low power Atom system. Anyway I've seen most old games didn't really use a lot of …
