Re: games that are better on a Macintosh

I think that sense of this thread is actually point out that there are some Mac versions of games with some additional features or improvements.. but its not realistic to expect some complete of analysis and comparison of multiple version of games per by frame or something like that. In general …

As i wrote my memory.. but when i was checking it, i found difference between X79 and Z97. There is X79 Block diagram.. PCI Bus connected directly into chipset, like in case of old working board, that was that important thing.. https://download1.gigabyte.com/Files/Manual/mb_manual_ga-x79-up4_e.pdf …

In this thread is maybe someone how would be able say something more about it: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=24769 or here: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=63773 https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=63274 If my memory serves, which i looked at all chipset diagrams, …

Well, im using Gigabyte board, because they could force primary PCI-E slot and profiles. Its in history, but some HP boards have this options too and some Supremicros too, without it, it could be problem. Otherwise make sense use in primary GPU slot card which you are using most. To find which PCI-E …

Well if still have 155 FPS with 1600x1200 isnt performance already good enough? Unless you have some 150 Hz+ monitor, it should be enough, unless other games are running slowly i mean <60 FPS. Its not 1 to 1 but you can try Q2Dos same benchmarks in Dos if will able to get more fps. If yes problem …

@astigmatism - I find out other pro thing, you can disable whole PCI-E root on OS level to disable some PCI-E slot.. Its working at least WinXP+ in Win98 you dont need to disable things, because they are just unsupported. Well i dont met exactly this sort of performance problems, but because sorting …

Custom water-cooling is hell, even its bigger admires suffers some ridiculous fails.. as wait ffew hours to change something in system, but All in one water coolers are just plug and play, its almost same effort like air cooler, only you have to have some more place in case (but cpu / memory etc …

Re: PCI or PCI Express Sound Card for DOS Sound Blaster Sound Effects working on Intel Sandy Bridge Z68 or newer chipset

If you really need LPT access on a modern platform, there are still motherboards being made with LPT headers. Usually its on the low end side of things though. Its not elegant solution.. change whole MB, just because of it, or limit MB selection.. modular solution (add card if you need it) is much …

Re: PCI or PCI Express Sound Card for DOS Sound Blaster Sound Effects working on Intel Sandy Bridge Z68 or newer chipset

BTW i got by accident this Parallel + Serial port card with Mosh pit (MOSCHIP) chip MS9835CV: https://www.discomp.cz/itec-pci-card-2x-serial-1x-parallel-moschip-chipset_ie126174.jpg It which conditions this will port in Dos? For Parallel port and OPL2/3LPT? Because most of modern moderns are without …

Re: PCI or PCI Express Sound Card for DOS Sound Blaster Sound Effects working on Intel Sandy Bridge Z68 or newer chipset

2 quick notes to this paper: 1) Its about Parallel and serial ports and i dunno how these are related to PCI devices 2) There are boards with both PCI and PCI-E where is still Dos sound working, so there are exception, maybe is PCI bus connected directly to CPU, without PCI-E to PCI bridge.. for …

Practical translation: 1. Write-back cache enabled means full cache speed on modern architectures. That is both memory reads and memory writes are executed at maximum speed. 2. Write-through cache means different cache speeds for reads and writes. That is memory reads are executed at full cache …
