Re: Rarest CPUs?

Yes, do you have some sort of sale history for the Cyrix MII-433GP at $300? I'm surprised the K6-III+ 550 would sell for more than the 433GP. A boat load of the K6-III+ 550 chips sold on CPU-World a year ago for $60 each, so the inventory is fairly high. Even if the K6-2+ can be modded for full 256K …

Re: Market value for popular or rare classic computer hardware

Now I feel bad for placing a heatsink on mine and placing it in my socket 5 system. don't, that's a way better use for it :) For the particular heatsink/clamp system I have to use on this board, it is very easy to scratch the K5's gold surface. Each time I remove the heatsink, the CPU value drops …

Saw this in another thread, AMD K5-PR200 sold in April 2022 for $1335 USD https://www.ebay.com/itm/125228128174 In my experience, the PR166 doesn't overclock to PR200 speeds very well. Definitely won't be fully stable at stock voltage. So I can see the PR200 having some testing value, but didn't …

Re: Rarest CPUs?

I have this Cyrix MIIv in my collection, should be rare today? Not terribly rare, sought after or valuable. 30$ probably. Some dreamers put them for 50 on ebay but I don’t think they sell at that price. I’ve seen similar chips going for 20 or so recently also. A 433gp can go for 300$ though Do you …

Another one of these Quantum Obsidian Voodoo2 SLI2 cards sold today for $907 USD + $21 shipping. https://www.ebay.com/itm/134126698340 This is something I've never owned. Anyone know the function of the Digital 21150-AA chip? And was there ever a design like the the double-Voodoo2 card which also …

Here's an item I had been watching. New, open box Voodoo2-1000 w/12MB. Sold for $256 USD + $15 shipping. I thought it would sell for more. https://www.ebay.com/itm/3dfx-3Dfx-Voodoo-2-1000-Boxed-Complete-/203951945504?_trksid=p2349526.m4383.l44720.c10&nordt=true&rt=nc&orig_cvip=true Boxed_Voodoo2_ …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

@Feipoa I see the same visual glitches on the other two VIP UM8881 motherboards when using GD-54## graphics cards. Tried on SiS VIP and VLB boards - no problems. Looks like specific Quake + UMC + GD-54## issue. Not just GD-54**. It also happens with my Mach64. I bet it will happen with your Trio64 …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

It is certainly reassuring to know that my M919's are equally as flakey as yours concerning the 64 MB perf. sinkhole and Quake visual glitches. Thanks a lot for testing this. I wonder if it has to do with how the VLB is implemented on the UM8881. Were there any other [non-PC Chips] UM8881/8886 …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

Better yet, if you are able to run WinQuake from Win95, the frequency of the corruption is much greater. Make sure you are running it with sound. The corruption occurs not only with a Trio64V+ VLB, GD-5428 VLB, Mach64 VLB, but also the Virge VLB. I swapped the sound card from the S23A to an …

Acer Magic S23A sold March 2022 $130 USD $130? Wow! Are these cards any good? I pulled one out of a PC Chips system recently but figured it was junk. The S23A comes with these sound chips: CX4237B CS9233-CX CS4112-CS The regular Acer Magic S23 (no A suffix) also contains the CX423X, but instead of …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

You were planning on using the GD-5428 VLB for the Quake w/audio tests. Are you still able to test this card? There is no issue with PCI cards and the issue with the Trio64V+ is much less prevalent than with the VLB versions of the Mach64 or 5428. What FSB are you running? I don't understand how you …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

I'm having all kinds of consistency issues with my M919's. I'm having trouble getting the w95 Virge VL drivers working again. How did the 5428 w/sound card and Quake go? For my case, I needed to stare closely at the Quake timedemo the whole time without blinking much. I see red turn to green, and …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

I've been testing with these VLB cards: Trio64V+, Mach64, GD-5428, and Virge. I'm using an Acer Magic S23A ISA sound card and have noticed that in DOS Quake or WIN Quake, if I have sound enabled, I will see occasional colour goofs during the timedemo (w/Trio64V+). Those colour goofs become a lot …
