Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

But what you are after here ?! I am starting to wonder if there is a large dependency on the PCI frequency. I am also starting to wonder if the UMC driver has issues with Cyrix 5x86 CPUs. You are running your ISA bus at PCICLK/2, so 20 MHz. Why? I am unable to run mine that high when the FSB is at …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

Those results are really odd with the ATTO. For a 128K block size, you get 9118 KB/s read, but for 1024K, you are down to 4008 KB/s, but for 4096K, you are back up to 9782 KB/s. I don't normally see the results go up and down like this. And the Write speeds are consistently poor, worse than mine in …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

pshipkov, I'll have to check the versions of ATTO and Roadkil later after the wife and kids are in bed. What result did you get in Speedsys? I don't understand what is going on here. If you set your PIO mode to PIO-3, what result do you get in Speedsys for the Linear read speed and buffered read …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

I'm puzzled by your benchmark result. I wonder if there is any substantial difference with OSR2 vs. 2.5 in this regard. Some questions: What is your PIO mode set to? What CPU are you using? What is the FSB set to? Which CF card are you using? Could you try running ATTO Disk Benchmark and RoadKil …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

what's even more vexing to me is that I was unable to get any variant of the Adaptec 2940 to work in my LS-486E tried a plain 2940, 2940U, and 2940UW - all cards known working in other machines - and all of them would just hang in a death spiral of rescanning the SCSI bus Did you try the 2940U2W? I …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

I checked the CF card throughput on another PCI 486 I have setup, which is based on the SiS 496/497 chipset. However, the IDE controller implemented is a "Symphony PCI IDE controller". That poor thing only gets 1700 KB/s read/write, making the 4200 KB/s on the Biostar seem like a real winner. …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

I spent more time trying to get the UM8886BF PCI IDE driver working in DOS and Windows 95c. In DOS, v3.1, I used the Install4.exe file. Here you can setup your IDE transfer speed. On my system, only PIO-3 seemed stable from previous tests and I determined that this translates to the 180 ns option in …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

the umc disk controller is ok, but needs drivers for both dos and windows. --- cannot remember seeing crashes with the driver @feipoa proveded. i use it with win95 osr2. it just worked. can double check during the weekend ... --- without drivers the umc controller gets around 4-5 mb/s. with drivers …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

I should have a collection of these IDE drivers for Win3.1 and/or Win95. I'll look for them for you when I continue my Linux installation battle. Next up is trying to get my no-name USB-to-Wifi drivers working on my garage/mechanic station. I didn't run ethernet to the garage and have been …

Re: Market value for popular or rare classic computer hardware

in Milliways
I think what I'm saying is that if hardware x and hardware y give just about the same performance and experience but x is more expensive then why would an enthusiast choose x? in that case it isn't to experience it in use unless of course if its because of specific enthusiasm for hardware The hobby …
