Re: Voodoo 3 bought second hand - dead or not?

You never mentioned your motherboard, is it Gigabyte? He said it's a P6F91i (it's a board from Freetech) BTW to remove a glued heatsink from the voodoo3 you have to heat up it first and then use some pincers/tongs to rotate it (carefully but firmly), first in one and then in the opposite direction …

Re: Are stable overclocks of early Pentium processors consistent or is it a lottery?

AFAIK (over)clock capabilities are related to the silicon/die quality. You can have two processors made the same day out of the very same "wafer", one barely meeting the minimum specs of the given model and the other capable to run at much higher frequency than stock. Usually the cores selected from …

Re: Windows XP video driver cleaner

Isn´t this Driver Sweeper? https://www.guru3d.com/content-page/guru3d-driver-sweeper.html Yes this is the first one I found (and probably the one I used back in XP times) but if you read carefully it says "Driver Sweeper has been replaced with Display Driver Uninstaller. Download here." and then in …

Windows XP video driver cleaner

Back in the days I remember I used a video drivers cleaner (not sure about the exact name) on Windows XP that worked pretty well I'm trying to find one now for my retro test build (where I'm swapping a lot of cards) but honestly all the results I get seems to be from questionable sources... Anybody …

Re: Quake (DOS) software-mode tested from 320x200 to 1280x1024 on 36 CPUs (and 7 platofrms) from 1996 to 2004

This was very cool! I have been playing around with Quake1 over the last week on my Micron big tower with P2 350 and G400max. I have a P2 400 on the way for it, and your benchmarks give me something to compare to when it arrives. I also tested a fresh install of 1.08, then GLQuake, and although it …

Re: Quake (DOS) software-mode tested from 320x200 to 1280x1024 on 36 CPUs (and 7 platofrms) from 1996 to 2004

Hate to break it to you since you ran so many tests already, but patch v1.08 improves Quake performance even further. It appears that you ran your tests on v1.06. hehe no problem I used 1.06 consciously, doubt the 1.08 will revolutionize everything but if there are performance improvements I will …

Quake (DOS) software-mode tested from 320x200 to 1280x1024 on 36 CPUs (and 7 platofrms) from 1996 to 2004

Hi Falks, I tested Quake (DOS) in software mode with 36 CPUs from 1996 to 2004 at the most common video resolutions, from 320x200 to 1280x1024 to see what is needed to get 30 and 60 FPS on each one Test Methodology Quake has been released on June 22, 1996 and I decided to start from what was the …
