Finally got my oldstyle case home from ebay and it hosts a Jetboard 656HXA with Intel 430HX ("Triton II") chipset as far as I can understand.
The motherboard itself doesnt seem to support Pentium MMX cpus, while the chipset does?? (https://www.anandtech.com/show/72/5)
I have a Pentium MMX166mhz that I initially planned to use because I would love to try out quake 1 and I heard that only pentiums had a chance playing them OK.
Anyhow, I noticed that there is a slot for puttin a 256/512kb L2 cache stick 😀.. How do I know if I need one?
Lastly I have a question about old drivers and such.. Do I need to install any specific chipset drivers for the motherboard?
I was to young to remember that when we got our first 133mhz pentium 1.. but nowdays you install chipset drivers.. how did it work back in the day? 😀
My plan is now to install w95 onto the hdd and re-live a bit of my childhood gaming!
Thanks for reading!
