Re: VLB with 386DX-40 ?

True. On a 386 DX-40 with overclocked ISA bus, most late ISA VGA cards enough for Wolf3D. it's also fast enough on normal bus speeds, I recently played through all of Wolfenstein 3D, extra levels and Spear of Destiny... about 40-50 hours or so on my 386DX-40 with ET4000AX ;) it runs perfectly fine. …

Re: VLB with 386DX-40 ?

Wolfenstein 3D runs fine on 386DX40 at standard ISA bus speed. I used to play it. True. On a 386 DX-40 with overclocked ISA bus, most late ISA VGA cards enough for Wolf3D. Transport Tycoon, Settlers 2 are 256 color SVGA games designed for 486 that benefit from faster bus. I have tested Transport …

Re: VLB with 386DX-40 ?

It's still pretty interesting that there is a big performance gap between the 495SX and M1429 chipsets. They gap might also widen or narrow depending on the manufacturer of the motherboard, or which graphics cards are used. Back in 2008/9 when I was doing my "testing", I didn't use Wolf3D for …

Re: VLB with 386DX-40 ?

When I did my tests on an opti 495SX board, I didn't detect much difference with an am386DX or a cx486DLC (SXL) between an ISA or VLB card of the same class (in my case, ATi Mach64 VRAM). However, with the IBM 486DLC2 and 486SLC2 (Alaris), there was a significant difference, especially in DOOM. …

I would try original WinME drivers also with RAGE XL PCI (4752), WinME clean install to see if it works with WinME drivers somehow. I have tested, WinME ATI_DRAE driver (by a clean WinME install) and it knows RAGE XL PCI and works in 2D (so this is the earliest driver version that supports RAGE XL …

Did you tested RAGE XL PCI (4752) also in DOS with Actua Soccer: Semi-Finals - ATI 3D RAGE version, is result the same, like other Rage3 cards? I know that at least one ATI_DRAE (WinME built in) Rage driver file is compatible with MACXW4 2573/2582 drivers, when i was testing speed and compability …

Rage XL PCI - 3DCIF ? Yes, this is a new test result: unfortunately Rage XL PCI is too different than the AGP one and 3D CIF not works. The oldest driver which supports Page XL PCI is the 4.12.2632 (rpro_j5111b20.zip). This is an ATI2DRAE driver. I have tried to downgrade this driver by ATI2DDAD …
