Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

Yes Andrew. Agreed. It is implied that these adapters are inserted between CPU and underlying socket (being this on-motherboard socket or slotket one). I can see how it was not clear from the wording in the previous posts. These Tualatin adapters are much better option than modifying Slotkets, to me …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

Pentium 3 class hardware is of interest to me, especially Slot 1 and 2 stuff, so naturally built this dual Slot1 high-end workstation / gaming pc after the thorough examination of bunch of Pentium3 motherboards based on 440BX, OR8#0 and VIA chipsets. Some of that documented here , here , here , here …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

Modified second LuckyStar E486 rev D motherboard. This time with 8ns L2 cache chips. Thinking to attempt long-term sustainable 200Mhz system. To my surprise the silk screen reacted badly to the heat gun: 20211017_192627.jpg Took the picture straight out of the oven. After cleaning and removing the …

Re: My Very Long Bus Adventure.

While writing my previous reply I was thinking about why the difference since we use the same hardware really. Ruled-out already the 2TheMax culprit. It is unlikely that Asus gimped the 2.1 VLI revision. So it must be something subtle on your side. Let's try the basics as a starting point: …

--- with POD @100MHz: https://www.petershipkov.com/temp/retro_pc_images/other/asus_vli-486sv2gx4_pod100_quake1_27.3.mp4 Basically: wolf3d - 149.2 fps p3b - 29.3 fps doom - 65.1 fps quake 1 - 27.3 fps etc. What SpeedSys says: https://www.petershipkov.com/temp/retro_pc_images/benchmarks/486_asus_vli- …

Re: My Very Long Bus Adventure.

Trio64+ is the same as Trio64 but with added hardware mpeg1 video decoder. If you are not into watching first gen pixelated mpegs - nothing to see there. Last year somebody was selling on eBay several of these for stupid price. I tried briefly tonight to record a video showing 18.8 fps in quake1 on …

Re: My Very Long Bus Adventure.

@Chadti99 So, ran couple of DOS interactive graphics tests for the two ARK1000VL cards. No difference in Quake1. Tiny difference in Doom - 1222 vs 1223 realticks. Tiny difference in Wolf3D - 0.1 fps. Basically a rounding error. If you setup jumpers and BIOS as shown below, you should be able to hit …
