I have tested the Trio64v+ that I have recieved yesterday. Stacked up against Cirrus Logic 5446.
Both cards are PCI editions, and both have been running under MS-Dos 6.22.
I have been running them in on a 5x86-133 and 8mb ram.
I have tested them with UniVBE and without UniVBE.
I have tested them with these games.....
- Doom 1
- Cannon Fodder 1
- Lotus 3
- Civilization 1
- Pinball Fantasies
- Epic Pinball
What I have found, is that the S3 crashes in Cannon Fodder 1 with and without UniVBE.
Doom feels really sluggish on the S3, compared to the 5446. (chopping slightly when moving around)
The whole system, actually seems a tiny bit more sluggish with the S3, compared to the 5446.
The S3 gives a chrisp and clear image (sharp contrast) while the 5446 gives a more warm and blended quality.
The colours on the S3 are a tiny bit more vibrant and the 5446 is a bit more "natural" in quality.
Can someone confirm me on my suspicion that the CL-5446 is a better choice,
when it in reality is a much underrated card !?
And why is it such an underrated card, if my observations are correct?
