Standard 386SX-16

Hello, this is not a build log, as the machine was already built. But I recently used it and took the opportunity to take some pictures. Specs: CPU: 386SX-16 FPU: None (I don't see a reason to plug one) Memory: 4 MB as DIP, 4 MB as SIPP Mainboard: Zymos Chipset Controller: Standard AT Miniscribe …

Re: Matrox Millennium II 16MB - exists? If so, why?

https://www.matrox.com/graphics/media/pdf/support/manuals/en_mac2.pdf The tables on page 9 list the differences. If the OP has a 12 MB version it would be interesting to know what the maximum refresh rate at 1440x1080 at 32 bit color depth is as it is lower as the one given in the table for 8/16 …

My second IBM PS/2 Model 80

Hello, so I recently acquired a IBM PS/2 Model 80. The computer was just tested that it shows something when switched on. Additional cards came in another packet, incl. a second mainboard, memory cards, a ESDI HDD and a IBM Model M keyboard. The second packet was thrown? and the keyboard had three …

Re: MCA Adlib card -- just need pictures

Another update We identified an issue in combination with memory expansion cards that use the MCA feature Matched Memory Cycle. Most memory cards use this feature for optimal transfer speed. The issue appears when data is read from the OPL2 and randomly locks up communication with the card. To …

Re: COLORImage ET4000/W32i VLB card

Looks similar like my card from Cardex: http://retronn.de/imports/hwgal/hw_et4000_w32i_vlb.html It is one of the faster ones, however with 0 WS it won't run with much more than 33 MHz VLB. I tried several cards on my Nexgen with 42 MHz VLB and some S3 VLB card cope better with higher frequencies at …

Re: SVGA minimum RAM?

The OPs question is a bit misleading. What Super VGA means was never really put into a standard and in common sense it means all modes that go beyond VGA standard, most notable 800x600 resolution. A lot of early VGA cards (like the Paradise PVGA1A) are capable of 800x600 at 16 colors at e.g. 56 Hz …

Re: MCA Adlib card -- just need pictures

Here is some update from me. Eric sent me a Plaid Bib CPLD Edition and (after 11 days being stuck at customs) it finally arrived today. It works in my Model 80. The only very minor issue I noticed is that sometimes after exiting Windows for Workgroups 3.11 the card gives loud noise until …

Re: MCA Adlib card -- just need pictures

Thats very good news and very good work. 👍 I have a Model 80 PS/2 and I'am interested to get one of the Plaid Bib cards. Though my soldering skills are rather basic. Is someone going to produce some cards (ready to plug)? I would compensate the efforts.

Re: Style problems/bugs

in Milliways
I also find the dotted line box that appears around e.g. the Quick Reply, Notifications (when opened), Choose thread page drop down (when opened) etc. irritating as it is offset and not fitting to anything else shown. When in a thread I think the thread page navigation on top right/bottom right is …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

If I read the product specs of the lowcost VGA2USB correctly ( https://www.epiphan.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/epiphan-vga2usb-brochure.pdf ) then it always captures interlaced. And the 14 fps interlaced at 640x480 you see correspond to 28 fps progressive as written in the spec. (deinterlacer …
