Re: Riva TNT vs MX400

Supposedly 64bit cards always have both/all memory locations populated on both sides. Whereas 32bit cards only populate one/half of the memory locations per side. Mine is bit strange then. It only has 4 memory chips on front side and no chips on back side. Can't see the markings on the chips …

Re: Riva TNT vs MX400

That depends.... The MX4000 is the latest iteration of the GF4MX440 revision, which in itself is an MX2 on steroids... In terms of performance it really depends on the card in question as most MX4000s were of the 64bit variety, and there even exist 32bit versions, as well as PCI variants... The AGP …

Re: Riva TNT vs MX400

How about how does Geforce 2 MX compare? I have one without 400 after the MX on the chip. I also have MX4000 card that I think is suppose to be similar performance as MX400 at least based on some forum conversation online. That depends.... The MX4000 is the latest iteration of the GF4MX440 revision …

Re: What is your weirdest troubleshooting experience when dealing with retro computers/hardware?

I had an issue where when you first turned on the 386 pc it did read floppies for about 15 minutes and after that it stopped reading the floppies and gave just errors, so if I wanted to transfer data from floppies to hard drive I had to do it immediately after I turned on the computer. Never really …

Re: My Dream High-End Intel 486 Build

I don't know why but I could never manage to match or have faster 486 performance with pci video cards when comparing to my vlb system. If I put my 486 33Mhz cpu to LS-486E motherboard with pci video cards, it always gets worse performance than when I am using the cpu in my normal vlb system. Tried …

Re: Switching video card when switching OS.

Thank you all for the advice. I had been considering getting a big kvm switcher to connect all my retro PCs some day, but I was wondering if a simple splitter cable would be more smart thing to do for a single pc that would have 2 video cards. That way if I will get kvm some day I would not need to …

Re: Switching video card when switching OS.

Of course, there are video input switchers. But the more easy solution would be to connect one card via VGA and one via DVI. You normally have both on most non-CRT monitors anyway. I only have one 19" CRT monitor for all my retro PCs. I basically currently have 4 PCs and just just one monitor …
