Has anyone done an in depth comparison of Win9x-specific games for P75 - P166 rated machines to determine how many more frames can be squeezed out of the game? For example, if you are using a Pentium 100 and playing GLQuake, what frame rate do you get using Win95 vs. Win98 vs. WinME ?
I don't understand this. Why are you trying to squeeze out extra frames on a P75 - P166? Just get a Pentium II and get all the frames you want. If you're trying to "relive the experience" for some strange reason, then lower frame rates are just part of the experience, aren't they?
Always fun to try out the maximum you can get out of these systems 😁
What I find interesting though is the difference in perceived quickness or slowness of these machines when using 98SE on systems with relatively similar CPU's.
Perhaps the difference was in the graphics cards used? I know that using a SiS 6326 in Windows XP will make the system feel slow, no matter how fast the rest of the system is.
Of course the other option is that it's really just perceived: What feels alright for one person may feel sluggish for another person.
