Currently I´m testing an old FIC 486-PAK-3 mainboard that was used in AT&T´s Globalyst 520.
I updated it´s BIOS from 1.00 to 1.06 (from the NEC´s website).
It´s now equipped with 64 MB of EDO memory and a 486 DX2-66 CPU. This CPU is correctly detected and identified by the BIOS.
The proprietary L2 cache stick is not installed - due to it´s rarity...
So I ran some initial tests like Speedsys and Sysinfo:
I couldn´t believe my eyes when I noticed CPU benchmarks. That´s a joke for a DX2-66 right?
There aren´t too many BIOS options and they don´t affect CPU performance. On the board there are no jumpers, just a microswitch to select between 25 MHz and 33 MHz FSB.
What could be the issue here?
