Yes they should be the very same, but if you are willing test them both, even cpuchk could show if there is any difference.

I ran some quick test on both Ti 486 DX2-80 and It's ST 486DX2-80 and compared them against a Intel DX2-66. It's a VLB system with BIOS timings left on default. Both DX2-80s gave the same results.

Hello,

I am ran some dos benchmarks and cache check utilities on my Compaq Prosignia Server.
It has a Pentium Overdrive 83MHz, 112MB RAM and a Compaq EISA Qvision 1024/E graphics card:

Let's start with the xvesa102 tool, it also measures VRAM speed:

OK, so it's a already proven, that this graphics card is awesome under DOS 😀

16.5 FPS is OK for an EISA computer, isn't it?

The same benchmarks (some slight differences):
from my second 486 computer: mainboard micronics asic eisa 256kb cache wt, Am5x86-133 with adapter in wt-mode, 64MB RAM fast page mode 30 pin, graphics ATI ultra pro eisa 2MB VRAM, adaptec 2742W, IBM 9GB wide harddisks.

I post everything with pictures, sorry that they are bit blurry, but I think still more entertaining than ascii text 😀

So the first 5 pictures:
1)
First the "cachemess" utility ctcm from Heise Ct. The values are not bad for a mainboard from 1992, most important: The board's L2 cache covers the maximum possible RAM = 64MB:

Wow, so the high end EISA ATI card seems to be really slower than the Compaq Qvision 1024/E under dos, interesting

So memory access is a bit slower than the Compaq Prosignia Server, also confirmed by this tool.

I am little bit irritated that the harddisk benchmark gave a slower score for this machine (Wide SCSI hdd has slower write speed than the narrow SCSI?), but I won't investigate further.

I have an M919 with 256k cache Stick

I have try 4x40MHz and 3x50MHz both running without problems at 3.3V
have try multiple benches but for me the doom ist most important, and DX4-150 gets 1825. as DX5-160 i only get 2072 (less iss better)

Would be intresting to know if ther is a FSB60 option on this Bord. I heard about it but dont find closer details.
