Re: Ati Radeon X1950 PRO AGP problems!

6600GT does not stand a chance in Doom 3 at 1600*1200 ultra settings dipping to the low 20s frequently! I know because I tested quite a few nvidia cards in Doom 3: 1. geforce 5700 ultra - abysmal performance even at 800*600. I suspect all FX series suffers greatly in directx 9.0 titles. 2. geforce …

Re: Ati Radeon X1950 PRO AGP problems!

7800GS is essentially just a renewed GeForce 6800GT/Ultra. Practically identical in performance, due to hardware configuration and clocks. It has only 8 ROPs. But you are right that it is closer to those than I originally thought. I was thinking 6600GT is 16/8 when it is actually 8/4, but then …

Re: Ati Radeon X1950 PRO AGP problems!

I wouldn't be surprised if ATI's drivers are the cause of all the problems with the AGP bridge cards. They were not well supported and there occasionally were regressions that broke stuff. The QA testing didn't seem to be there for the AGP cards after 2005 or so.

Re: Setting up an Ensoniq Sound card

Bummer. unisound reports the card is unsupported: Unknown PnP card [ENS4080] found. Not compatible yet. Aborting.... Try the Intel ISA PnP Configuration Utility http://vogonsdrivers.com/getfile.php?fileid=1100&menustate=0 Once that initializes the PNP aspects, the Ensoniq drivers should work.

Re: Setting up an Ensoniq Sound card

Does your motherboard's POST screen mention anything about detecting the card? I think if it doesn't you may need a PnP configuration TSR to run first to configure it. 486 motherboards with PnP tech would be late in the life of the 486. By the way the VIVO might be a bit of a CPU hog for a 486 …

Re: Setting up an Ensoniq Sound card

I don't remember the steps to get a VIVO working anymore. It is a PNP card. You do need to have EMM386 loaded. The easiest approach is probably Windows 95/98. The Ensoniq software installer will set you up with DOS support too. The Windows 3.1 installer probably does as well but Win95 knows all …
