Can you posts some benchmarks.
I would like to compare it to my 486 and 5x86 computers.

Speedsys
Topbench
Drystone
Graphics benchmarks too.

Thanks.

Yeah, but I want to compare with his specific build since he calls it a “486 killer”.
I think the only CPU that killed off the 486 was the Pentium.

yes those were captured on this system

It was just a hyperbole. In reality the performance of NexGen P90 is sometimes inferior even to 486DX4-100 in some benchmarks. Especially graphics tests in DOS.

Nice NexGen System.

Where did you connect the Sanyo CDR-H94RSA SCSI CD-ROM drive?
I don't see a SCSI controller card in your system pictures. Do you use some kind of SCSI <-> IDE converter on the Promise Controller?

What is your experience with other graphics cards in this system?
With my ET4000W32/i VLB from Gainward I had to use an additional WS to make it work, so in the end the S3 Vision 864 ended up there as graphics card.
