Re: VLB video card memory

Yes no benefits. 2nd MB would only enable support of 1024x768 with 64k colours instead of 256 and 1280x1024 with 16 colours. However, both with unusable interlaced refresh rates (due to slow RAMDAC) which look ugly on CRT and rarely work with LCD screens. So there is no point. Often memory sockets …

Re: ECS Local Bus VGA card artifacting

in Marvin \ Video
Hard to tell. I'd assume it must be something in the RAM interface rather that analogue path or clock, given it forms some sort of regular pattern. I suppose you tried to remove all socketed chips from sockets, clean connector, run it with half of RAM to simplify the problem. Perhaps you could use a …

Re: S3 86C805-P Which vendor?

You should be able to use generic "S3 Flat Model Windows Driver" which …

Re: ALD PCI5433 Manual

Thanks for the manual. I also happen to own one mb with ALD chipset and PB cache. https://dependency-injection.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/DSC_1558-1.jpeg Will wait for your findings, but II found it actually slower than other 486 PCI motherboards I own (such as PC Chips 919 or MSI4144). IMHO …

Re: Iconic Sound Blaster CT numbers

in Marvin \ Sound
I can't believe it took me 2 years to finish this project. But I finally completed my Sound Blaster display unit installation. I ended up picking these models: CT1320C - Sound Blaster 1.5 (simply because I don't own CT1310/CT1320A) so it represents the very first SB models CT1350 - Sound Blaster 2.0 …
