Re: 6800XT AGP VS. 5900XT AGP

FINALLY. The replacement X1950 came today and it's a gigantic upgrade from the FX cards. Thank you candle_86 for suggesting ATI! My XP oldies rig is much better now. I'll probably get some pics and benchmarks done over the next few days as I'm stuck at home for now.

Re: CUV4X - Powerleap Tualatin Build

Well the TUV4X has arrived and I finally have a reliable Tualatin machine for the first time in many years. One interesting quirk I've noticed with this board though is if I disable the onboard audio in the bios 98se stops booting. Turn it back on and everything is fine. Who knows why, updated the …

Re: CUV4X - Powerleap Tualatin Build

TUV4X owner here. In my case, I have been able to overclock my system up to 155MHz in BIOS. Anything higher would cause the keyboard to stop working, so in order to circumvent that, I push the FSB higher with SetFSB in Windows. Make sure your RAM can tolerate the overclock. I have six ECC sticks …

Re: CUV4X - Powerleap Tualatin Build

So I ordered a CUBX on ebay for $99 Canadian. Shortly after clicking buy it now I got a message from the seller saying for some reason it would take 6-8 days for payment to clear from paypal which was too long for him. So he cancelled the order, of course a couple of days later Paypal takes the $99 …

Re: CUV4X - Powerleap Tualatin Build

Are all caps ok? I am in no way an expert, but the power draw at 1,5 instead of 1,75 might stress the rail more than it would like. The PL-Neo/T is, imho, like the Lin Lin adapter, just telling the MB how much Vcore it wants, and making sure the necessary bridges are connected to have the Tualatin …

Re: CUV4X - Powerleap Tualatin Build

Which Powerleap adapter are you using? Is the CUV4X able to provide the correct voltage if the Powerleap is not actively regulating the voltage itself? PL-Neo/T is the model. In the bios it's reporting 1.5V. Everything is fine at 100mhz fsb on Tualatin processors but at 133mhz the keyboard stops …

Re: CUV4X - Powerleap Tualatin Build

This machine has been such a pain in the butt. Well I finally got around to taking some pics today, after lots of testing I've reached the conclusion that the combo of this motherboard and powerleap adaptor will NOT run at 133mhz fsb. P3 1.0 (133fsb) runs fine at 133mhz and 100mhz (no powerleap) P3 …

candle_86 wrote on 2020-02-05, 04:47: Sorry x1950gt Ah ok, I am getting results for those. It looks like it'll be about $80 Canadian for a 256mb GT or about 30 more for a 512mb pro. I'm about to hit the sack so I'll come back to this tomorrow but I think I'm going to get the pro if it is faster.

Re: 6800XT AGP VS. 5900XT AGP

Hard to argue with that, but I've seen x1900gt agp cards on eBay for 50-60 and those are light years ahead of the 7800gs. They match the x1950pro in specs and clock speeds, it just uses the r580 instead of the rv570. It also compares to the 7950gt vs the 7800gs comparing to the 6800 ultra. I'd say …

Re: 6800XT AGP VS. 5900XT AGP

Avoid the 512 and 256 cards they where later and used ddr2 you want 138mb GDDR3. It will be faster though, at launch below 1600x1200 the 6600gt would often beat the plain 6800, or if you used aa and af, but neither card where playable really with those settings. Dear might be a different story but …

Re: 6800XT AGP VS. 5900XT AGP

Well at 8pp your card is actually slower than a 6600gt, your comparable to a 6600 DDR2 in 3d performance unless you enable aa and then you may get be slightly faster thanks to bandwidth. Your disabled pipes are definitely bad though. It's only about $40 on ebay for an agp 6600gt, I might get one to …

Re: 6800XT AGP VS. 5900XT AGP

Something else of note is that Firefox scrolls much smoother with the 307.83 drivers on the 6800XT, even scrolling up and down a page on this forum with the 175 drivers on 6800XT is kind of choppy (same with 5900XT). So I guess there's some kind of hardware acceleration being enabled with these …

Re: 6800XT AGP VS. 5900XT AGP

Well after testing version 175.19 I'm going to say driver version probably doesn't play a role in this. None of the extra pixel shaders work properly on this card but one of the vertex shaders does (at least in FEAR). EDIT - 3dmark tests don't seem to show any artifacts with that extra vertex shader …

Re: 6800XT AGP VS. 5900XT AGP

Does display driver version matter when you try unlocking shader units with Riva Tuner? If I enable either block of disabled pixel shaders I get 2d corruption/freezing and other weirdness in Windows. If I enable either disabled vertex shader I get flashing shadows in FEAR. EDIT - Actually enabling …
