Re: Best WinXP Video Card

Here's an odd contender: Quadro K1200. It's a a little slower than a 650-ti, but it's also low profile and single-slot. Excellent for an ITX build. Do you have one? If yes, can you see more anti-aliasing options than one would normally see on Geforce? I have briefly looked if it's possible to make …

Re: Gateway 2000/Tatung CM-1495 CRT

Shame it did not do the trick. Hmm what you describe is kind of normal for my early CRTs, they have no OSD to show when there is no signal. My pre 90s CRTs do exactly this, the tube does not glow at all until they get a H/V sync they are expecting, and then kick into life. *Edit if the CRT has a TV …

Re: Gateway 2000/Tatung CM-1495 CRT

I like these old school monitors, yep that monitor has an Analogue/TTL toggle switch. Up to 64 colours EGA. The 9 pin connectors are wired differently to VGA pinouts on some CGA/EGA CRTs.. apart from NEC and some Japanese domestic market ones. I am guessing it is the former which means you probably …

Re: Best WinXP Video Card

I did see that. I guess any kind of 3d acceleration working with a Fury or Hawaii series in XP is good news. Maybe those issues could be worked out, maybe not but won't know till someone else has a crack at it.

Re: Best WinXP Video Card

Yeah quite a breakthrough if true. I notice the link has gone down from AMD. I think I downloaded the driver and stashed it away somewhere.. I will upload them for someone wants to try (if I find it). Edit somewhat discussed here: What would be the fastest XP Setup with XP Era Hardware ?

Re: Best WinXP Video Card

Someone supposedly has got a Fury X working with AMD XP iCafe drivers and an inf mod. Lost my source for that one. Edit: https://msfn.org/board/topic/175342-amd-icaf%C3%A9-unified-driver-for-windows-xp-32-bit/ I would love for someone to test a 780ti OC vs a 980ti OC/Titan X OC in XP. Maxwell …

Re: Is anyone excited for Big Navi?

in Milliways
Yeah that would do it too, bit weird these days having to pick the 4k compliant cables. Don't have to spend too much but check some user reviews. 90fps sounds right it's an inefficient engine, seems like backwards compatibility is there to chew through bloated steam/gog libraries! RDR2 is a gpu …

Re: Is anyone excited for Big Navi?

in Milliways
Well today in the UK was the launch of the AIB 6800s and it would seem that not one retailer had any in stock! That goes beyond paper launch! The card is quite warm but I haven't tried under volting yet. It's quite capable at 4k running games like AC:Ody and Mafia DE at max settings 60fps. RDR2 is …

That is a sexy card! Looks like the front grill of an 80s car when installed :D I've just seen this and I think it looks like an early 70s Plymouth... https://i.imgur.com/lxAQN3B.jpg I do sometimes wonder what sort of graphics performance we could have achieved in the early 2000s if we had allowed …

Re: Is anyone excited for Big Navi?

in Milliways
Hmm I've not owned a Navi card to know the issues exactly but from reddit posts something DX8/9 that is a bit demanding for their time: Witcher 1/2 FEAR Spellforce 2 Oblivion Gothic 1/2/3 (https://www.reddit.com/r/worldofgothic/comments/em34al/gothic_fans_with_radeon_57005700xt_navi_cards/) The …

Re: Is anyone excited for Big Navi?

That is a sexy card! Looks like the front grill of an 80s car when installed :D Congrats! Yeah we are shafted for the RRP $1=£1 on computer hardware. OCUK is a bit pricey but they seem to get the most of any new GPU stock so we have little choice. Tried to get a PS5 and failed miserably, bots got …

Re: Is anyone excited for Big Navi?

I've decided I don't have the energy to join the bumfight for a new card come launch time. [sarcasm] What are you? a socialist? The whole point is the bumfight! How else do we proclaim the virtues of unregulated capitalism? Fighting like a dog to spend money is the cornerstone of the American way! …

Re: Flashback - Incorrect aspect ratio?

I remember playing Flashback on the Amiga and SNES, both looked like the 2nd picture on a CRT. Except for the cutscenes. Like this (not my pic) https://external-preview.redd.it/GcfCUDbkAU1aPgzmGNXEr70HNsT-1HJkaak37KChr6w.jpg?width=640&crop=smart&auto=webp&s=299fabc152be456f1f786802e5d315c2d708b9d2 I …
