Re: My Schneider AT Towers

Hard to say, as those are the only 286 PCs I own, so I can't compare. The VGA System 70 is just as fast as an 386sx @ 16 MHz. It runs Wolfenstein 3D with max. window size just fine. The System 202 is noticeably slower. Still quite usable, since the ISA bus is overclocked at 10 MHz.

Re: Best Sound Cards each year of the 90's

Compatibility and versatility were Sound Blaster's selling points, and their top model was always the one to get for digital sound in games c. 1992-1996. Sound Blaster 16 came out in 1992, AWE32 in 1994, AWE64 Gold in 1996. They were the real deal [...] Let's not forget that no Soundblaster …

Re: Best Sound Cards each year of the 90's

I am trying to figure out which sound card was the best to get each year from 1993-1999? The best in what? Compatibility, sound quality, noise level, versatility..? I don't think this can be answered easily. ps: The AWE64 Gold was by no means the best card in 1996 (or any other year).
