Re: ISA video cards in DOS - where is the cap?

A good ET4000 or Cirrus Logic GD542x card is about the fastest ISA goes in DOS. In windows, you can get some good improvements through ISA cards with graphics accelerators (Cirrus Logic GD5426/28/29/34 or S3 801) vs dumb frame buffer cards (ET4000, Trident 8900D, Cirrus Logic GD5420/22)

Re: Newly made ISA CL-GD5434

After testing my 486sx/16 with a GD5422, I found it to be particularly slow. Do you think that an accelerated cirrus chip like the GD5434 would be a better choice for such a machine? I think occasionally you'll see a Cirrus Logic 5428/29/30 pop up and these are still a good option, otherwise very …

Re: Newly made ISA CL-GD5434

After testing my 486sx/16 with a GD5422, I found it to be particularly slow. Do you think that an accelerated cirrus chip like the GD5434 would be a better choice for such a machine? Did you correctly benchmark the system and find it to be slow compared to systems of similar vintage? A 486SX/16 …

Re: Newly made ISA CL-GD5434

Interesting! Can you make a picture of that modding and wasn't B7 the -12V voltage? How much was the performance impact? I remember having problems on older mobo but I had in the bios the wait state options to tweak so I found the fastest ones even if it weren't 0-0 values. With this mobo I've no …

Re: Newly made ISA CL-GD5434

It sounds like a nice complex project and impressive. I suppose the chip choice has been made but what about older (than Trio) S3 based chips? The ones that were used on the VLB bus should or not compete with the GD5434? Anyway I've the GD5429 on ISA with 1MB 60ns DRAM (even if my 386 mainboard …

Re: Collecting rants

I agree with you but also think that proper handling would prevent most of the damages. Fedex workers already admitted that they throw and kick boxes around all the time so yes, that became the norm. It's not the bumpy road. They let them do it so why wouldn't they? It's faster and it's not their …
