Re: Socket 7 - Intel Ultimate

It might be a bottleneck even for an MMX 166. I ran some benchmarks and compared them to this Anandtech review from 1998. Somehow, I'm getting similar frame rates as their Pentium II 266 system. Maybe some of the patches and drivers that weren't available at that time helped, but it's still evident …

Re: Acceptable 3d accelerator for Pentium MMX era.

what? It's worked fine in every PCI board I've tried it in. Slow for its time? Sure. But it's still faster than a voodoo2 Not the cards I have… which is why I said that it’s a hit & miss. Also, not sure what you mean by “faster than a Voodoo 2”. I think we all know that they are much faster than …

Re: Acceptable 3d accelerator for Pentium MMX era.

A PCI Riva TNT/ Riva TNT2 M64 (in conjunction with VERY old nVIDIA drivers, like Detonator 2.xx), would be somewhat acceptable on a Pentium MMX 233. Unfortunately, as others have pointed out... such a PC screams for a Voodoo card. :-) You can forget about the GeForce FX 5200/5500 PCI. Not only would …

Re: GPU for 440BX machine with 133 MHz bus?

Sorry but 440BX is perfectly stable at 133MHz and in case there are instabilities first thing would be to try other graphics (MX440 is NOT good card for 89MHz unlike Ti4200, geforce3 etc) and secondly your RAM timings as in many cases RAM is not stable at 133MHz with toot itgh settings. You can try …
