was there more than 1-2 fps between the cards?

so it was 3fps between the worst and best VGA in 386DX40 Doom, or ~30%, seems significant for attaining that unplayable/playable balance at the time, thank you.

Not sure how I missed this juicy thread.

I'm a little lost amongst all delicious pr0n posted herein. Did you benchmark the ET4000 PCI vs. ET4000 VLB on an identical system? What was the outcome?

Soon.
Monkeying around with some "impressive" underperforers at the moment. Wanted to post some results and findings already, but cannot get myself to move on. Will run some VLB/PCI tests right after.

How have your experiences been with this card? I saw on the video card compatibility list that this may be the only GPU that's VESA 2.0 natively and can handle the PowerVR version of Tomb Raider well. Is that a 4 MB card? Also, is that an integrated printer port?
I spend my days fighting with clunky software so I can afford to spend my evenings fighting with clunky hardware.

The video card is ok-ish. An average performer. It has 4Mb of memory. Travelling at the moment and cannot remember what was the other port, but you are probaby right - an LPT one.
The main issue with it is that it messes up picture size and aspect ratio on some LCDs.
Never tried it with pvr tomb raider, so cannot comment really - sorry.
