Re: First attempt at "let's make some 30-pin FP memories"... fail. What's wrong?

Seems you´re not alone, here are reports that the sticks won´t work in 386 boards without the 3rd chip (parity) populated, _unless_ your mainboard provides a jumper for disabling parity. https://dosreloaded.de/forum/thread/5088-selfmade-4-mb-30-pin-simm-ram-pcbs-let-s-make-some-memories/?pageNo=2 …

[SOLVED] First attempt at "let's make some 30-pin FP memories"... turned out to "let's not make stupid things again"

Ok, I'll try short explanation. I'm rationally lazy person, so I ordered prepared FP-RAM PCBs from BuB project at pcb...yay - 10 pcs. I ordered some brand new Samsung KM44C4100CK-6 FP-RAM 5 V chips (turned out to be the very same as in the BuB's video ). Soldered chips on the PCBs, and then tripple- …

Re: Worst fastest early 3D cards questions

Meanwhile I should receive another SiS6326 in the fastest version by Diamond and DVD 8MB variant. Hope it will work ok to test soon. You're tempting me to get one S3 ViRGE/GX2 AGP as it seems pretty useless AGP videocard, 'cause I can get it almost for free. I think I can use it in combination with …

Re: Worst fastest early 3D cards questions

There's also the possibility it might have been an upgraded AT24 at first so an optimized last real 2D video chip on a similar level of the S3 Trio chips, considering good brands like Diamond were using them in those years. I didn't know that AT25 may also be an upgraded AT24 chip. But as far as I …
