And instead of that… thinking about a 3D card that allow this P60 doing something “that i not belive is possible for the poor 60mhz?)… changing point of interest in my search? still good DOS compatibility but also squeeze the maximum ot this P60 can be fun…
I'll have to remember this thread if the SiS 6326 PCI I thought I had turns up, it's way past P60 era relatively, and it was seen as way slow, due to being an architecture that would have prospered had it been 18 months earlier, but it has some FPU and triangle functions, MPEG II decoding and later revisions have DVD features... So for a lot of stuff it was "no faster than doing it on CPU" at 500Mhz, but I think it might lift up slow CPUs with a breakeven around 200. Anyway, if I find that I'll give it a try in my P60, see how it does. What I have in my head is the idea that if it functions with TV out also, it might give you something like Playstation 1 experience in a couple of early 3D games hooked to TV.
