Re: SIV support for 386/486/586 class + Alpha CPUs and 3dfx + S3 + SiS + Matrox + XGI + old ATI + NVidia GPUs - Testing

lolo799 wrote on 2021-10-21, 16:26: Windows 2000 running on a SunPCI II card in a Sunblade 100 workstation. Thank you, this is the second report I have had from one of these, the previous one was on 2003-05-23 @ 15:54:54 , these days SIV reports rather more, the old report is 53 KB rather than 523 …

Re: SIV support for 386/486/586 class + Alpha CPUs and 3dfx + S3 + SiS + Matrox + XGI + old ATI + NVidia GPUs - Testing

The board was made by PiNON, named RT500 in the bios OK, as I like to dot the i's and cross the t's I adjusted the attached SIV32X 5.61 Test-10 so it should report PiNON RT500 , does it please? From the Romance Daylight Time on the DEC Miata PWS433 I assumed you were in Europe, but felt it worth …

Re: SIV support for 386/486/586 class + Alpha CPUs and 3dfx + S3 + SiS + Matrox + XGI + old ATI + NVidia GPUs - Testing

Ran SIV32X on a Nexterm RT-500 thin client Thank you for checking SIV out on the Geode and the link to the Nexterm RT-500 details. To me SIV looks to have done OK, did you spot anything that needs adjusting? SIV was unable to find any SMBIOS/DMI information and searching through the .DMI file I …

Re: SIV support for 386/486/586 class + Alpha CPUs and 3dfx + S3 + SiS + Matrox + XGI + old ATI + NVidia GPUs - Testing

Managed to install NT4 on the PWS433 Thank you for checking out SIV on NT4. In terms of reporting the Digital PowerStorm 4D50T it seems quite strange as it's made up of two PCI devices and all that SIV reported is the Cirrus CL-GD5430 memory clock. I noticed that SIV did not report the Cirrus Chip …

Re: SIV support for 386/486/586 class + Alpha CPUs and 3dfx + S3 + SiS + Matrox + XGI + old ATI + NVidia GPUs - Testing

Thanks for the tip. However, HWiNFO reported conflicting model on the same "video adapter" tab: IMHO it is no longer important whether it be 86C395 or 86C396 at this time as I only play DOS games on that build; the only way to verify it would be removing the heatsink, but it is glued on the chip …

Re: SIV support for 386/486/586 class + Alpha CPUs and 3dfx + S3 + SiS + Matrox + XGI + old ATI + NVidia GPUs - Testing

SIV reported my video card as S3 Savage4 Pro-M (86C396); on the other hand, Everest reported it as Savage4 GT (86C395). Another discrepancy is RAMDAC clock: SIV reported 162 MHz but Everest reported 300 MHz. The memory clock is the same slow 100 MHz, though. Different versions of CPU-Z (the last " …

Re: SIV support for 386/486/586 class + Alpha CPUs and 3dfx + S3 + SiS + Matrox + XGI + old ATI + NVidia GPUs - Testing

1280*1024 works fine, yes, although the first time I ran SIV32A 5.61Beta06 file>save local after taking that screenshot it crashed at [cpuid] SIV32A also reports the card as MGA-1164SG Mystique for some reason... Thank you for the report, it crashed doing a divide by zero processing the [cpu-levels …

Re: SIV support for 386/486/586 class + Alpha CPUs and 3dfx + S3 + SiS + Matrox + XGI + old ATI + NVidia GPUs - Testing

My Gainward CARDEXpert SG4 Savage4 Pro PCI has a similar problem: while the sticker says "SG4 Pro" (86c397), software like Everest or CPU-Z identify it as either non-Pro (86c395) or "Savage4V," a model that I can't find on most websites. Memory clock is even slower at just 100 MHz. AFAIK a 86c395 …

Re: 32-Bit is dead

Have you run any benchmark too? I guess it's pretty much water under the bridge by now, but if they ended up with 1:1 (or thereabouts) performance I'd be a little impressed :) I had not, but you got me wondering, looking at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Itanium then my CPUs are 30-Jun-2003 vintage …

Re: 32-Bit is dead

I've never seen an Itanium system. The fatal weakness seems to have been its inability to run x86 software. Supposedly intel developed an emulator so you could run 32bit x86 on the ia64 platform. There is no "Supposedly" about it they did and below you can see the 32-bit CPUZ x32 running on my …

Reinstalled Win2k, the network works again! Thank you, all the strange effects have now gone away :) I guess we will never know their root cause and I feel they must have been triggered by the previous installation going wonky. I spotted that SIV32A failed to report the Matrox MGA-1164SG Mystique …

Re: SIV support for 386/486/586 class + Alpha CPUs and 3dfx + S3 + SiS + Matrox + XGI + old ATI + NVidia GPUs - Testing

I'll try starting the service from the command line tomorrow. OK, I have just uploaded SIV 5.61 Beta-05 which should fix the SIV32L Menu->Help->SIV Manifest issue, does it? Doing [Save Local] worked OK on my PWS 600au, but took much longer than SIV32A and reported less information as several x32 …

Re: SIV support for 386/486/586 class + Alpha CPUs and 3dfx + S3 + SiS + Matrox + XGI + old ATI + NVidia GPUs - Testing

Pressing start didn't do anything, pressing delete followed by start gave me an SIV32A internal error panel. Deleting the file by hand and relaunching SIV32A didn't make it start the service either. No problems browsing through that part of the registry in regedit, 33 is there. right, there is no …

As you can see it has problems identifying the SIV32A.sys file: Thank you for running the tests and posting the results. For some strange/unknown reason the SIV driver does not start, but it did start and run OK in the files you posted on posted on 2021-09-03 @ 16:28. SIVA32.sys should be 174 KB ( …
