Re: My Very Long Bus Adventure.

The SV2GX4 doesn‘t support L1WB correct with POD. That means in this case that applications with DMA (Floppy, SCSI, Sound) cause memory incoherencies and errors. With L1WT there are no problems with DMA. With revision 1.8 and earlier the L1WB mode for POD is hard wired and you cannot switch to L1WT …

Re: My Very Long Bus Adventure.

It has the S3 Vision864 Accelerator and a good vga signal quality (better than Genoa, Orchid and Number Nine derivates) and i had it in my childhood … and i like Miro. Alternativly i would recommend Elsa Winner 1000 and Spea Mirage with the S3 864. Speedwise the Diamond Stealth 64 should be the …

Re: My Very Long Bus Adventure.

For Windows, the S3 968 VRAM followed by Mach64 VRAM should be the fastest option. Both are available with 4MB VRAM, so that 1280x1024@24bit is possible. The Trio64 and S3 864/868 DRAM should be nearby speedwise (if you don‘t chose the maximum available resolution/color depth combination) but …

Replace "much" with "many", if it makes you happy. That being said, there are actually many better alternatives to the GD5429 in every way, especially on this board with this CPU. If 20% doesn't matter, why does he have this top notch board and overclock the CPU? Discussing what is much for one and …

Re: My Very Long Bus Adventure.

You managed to get your hands on the fastest 486 board ever, currently trading for prices well over $200. And you're saving on the graphics card now? The integrated RAMDAC of the CL542x chips gets blurry at resolutions from 800x600. There are also much faster graphics cards for DOS, especially for …

Re: Graphics card for Pentium III 1ghz

GF2 (GTS, Pro, Ti, Ultra) GF3 (all) GF4 (Ti, MX460) Radeon 8500/9100 Voodoo 5500 For GF Cards make sure to take a driver from pre 2003, the others have too much driver overhead which unnecessary costs a small amount of CPU Power, especially the drivers for GF FX series and obove.
