Re: Voodoo 2 sli board, real or fake?

How's the 200SBI performance compared to the SLI setup? (like 3DM99 benchmarks) And do you have pictures of the card in your setup? Same as V2 SLI. It is just PCI-PCI bridge and two V2 chipsets on one board, after all. Sorry, no pictures, I never used it outside of quick test to check if it works …

Re: Voodoo 2 sli board, real or fake?

I've seen some images online about a voodoo 2 card, with 2 voodoo 2 cards on one board. Does anyone know of its excistance or is it a fake? Oh, the Obsidian2 200SBi. I have one, so definitely real :-D It works just like V2 SLI, but there are some driver difficulties, so it is better to run two V2 …

Re: Voodoo 1, 2, and 5 questions

There is a workaround for OGL / Glide. You can copy the glide2x.dll, glide3x.dll and opengl32.dll (that belongs to the desired card) to the game folder and it will run on the card you wish. I had V5 + V2 SLI in one system once and it worked fine.

Re: (Onboard) Voodoo 3 troubleshooting

I don't know how the 16MB version performs, they seem to be bery rare and I never had one. But the 8MB V3 on MS-6168 board performs exactly like Velocity 100 - so 1 TMU in OGL/glide and 2 TMU in D3D. It can be reenabled using the well known registry hack. Well, at least it worked that way last time …

Re: (Onboard) Voodoo 3 troubleshooting

I had MS-6168 system years ago and the onboard GPU worked perfectly even in glide. There are no special drivers, it is regular Voodoo3 (or in fact Velocity 100 - it has only one TMU active) soldered on the PCB, nothing special about it. I remember running Windows 98 and XP, both were ok.

Re: Pentium M Build Log

small update. That ramTurned out to be good over clockers after all and I just had PAT disabled Also I tightened the timings a bit to 3-3-3-7 T1 @ 533 Mhz , Its completely stable @ 2.65 V This is about the max the board can go so I'm happy. My sanda memory bandwidth score went up by another roughly …

Re: What the heck is a Voodoo5 5800??

It is fan-made... or photoshop box. There is no such thing as Voodoo5 5800 officially. Could be regular V5 5500 modded to 128MB and higher clock (183 - 200 MHz). For example I have V4 4500 AGP modded to 64 MB and I call it 4800, co it could be similar here.

Re: A way to limit how much VRAM windows sees

Catalyst drivers (some versions at least) sums the total VRAM capacity as well as the RAM usage values when running CF. So if it says 2 GB total and 1.7 GB used, then in reality you have only 850 MB used (which sound about right for low settings). Also I remember GTA 5 runs worse with two HD 4800 …

Re: Is anyone excited for the Nvidia 3000 series cards

in Milliways
This is actually a bad example in my book, no disrespect. A £800 latest gen card to run a 2013 game at 73fps in 2020 while consuming more than 300w of power as we deal with climate issues. I guess that's the curse of LCDs. Well, the power consumption can be solved easily. When I undervolt and …

Re: Is anyone excited for the Nvidia 3000 series cards

in Milliways
And another: Why the need to buy a gfx card with that much power, if currently there are no games that require its FULL POWER to use? I can’t think of any game that needs the amount of memory that the 3080 (10GB) and 3090 (24GB) provides. Actually pretty much any AAA game from the last 5 years …

Re: Voodoo 5 5500 problem after flashing Bios

Well, to be honest I am not an expert on external flash programmers. I have one of the chinese clones of TL866 II - that one would definitely work. The simple and cheap ones, I have no idea. You can flash the new (empty chip) on the V5 itself, sure. I did the same on the defective Banshee (at the …
