Re: Compaq QV2000 question

There was a QV2000 and a QV2000+ - I believe the latter used the IS-ATHENA chip but I could be mistaken. As an aside the QV2000+ is a pretty terrible DOS card... definitely the worst PCI one I have by a fair margin.

Re: Benchmarked the Qvision 1024/E card?

Hope this helps, it's all I can offer. On a 486DX2/66, it is about as fast or even a little bit faster than a Tseng ET4000 ISA card (which is nice). It is not competitive with better PCI cards on a 486 but the Deskpro/M does not have PCI. So QV1024/E is not a bad card to have on the M. Screen Shot …

Re: Benchmarked the Qvision 1024/E card?

Not sure what you’re looking for. On my P90, it is about 75% the performance in DOS of the fastest PCI cards I can make work on this platform e.g. Matrox Millennium, Riva 128. Not too bad but not so great if you have PCI. In a few days I’ll be able to compare QVision 1024/I (ISA) against QVision …

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

OK. From what everyone is saying, in DOS it makes ZERO difference whether one has say an ET4000AX, a CL-GD5434 or a Rage64 ISA card--period. If ISA is one's only option, then all three of these cards are completely functionally equivalent in DOS, regardless of your CPU. No, they aren't functionally …

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

Tseng pricetags are bloated due to somewhat "cult following". Which is humorous, because they don't offer anything unique. You can find alternatives or better alternatives to ET4000 series for any slot (ISA, VLB, PCI). See, I don’t follow this. They can be expensive but I would say the highest end …

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

I guess my question is simple... for DOS games, in the space from 386 to say ~P133, is there a sizable cluster of ISA video cards that all plateau at a similar performance level such that if you have one you needn’t look for another, or are there a select few that break past the pack and merit …

ISA video cards in DOS - where is the cap?

I have a couple of Tsing ET4000AX cards that work fairly well on late 386 to ~PODP5V83 machines. I’ve been wondering if there is any better performance to be had if ISA is my only expansion option. I see high prices for some cards... CL-GD5434, Rage64, etc. but in searching for benchmarks to guide …
