Now have write combining enabled for the Voodoo2 and squeezed out more frames! This K6-3 just keeps giving 🤣.

That's really cool. Are there any other tweaks you can do and how's the stability with the tweaks you've done so far?

Thanks! I’ve got some memory coming to bump it up to 128MB, I hope, but other than that it’s about tapped out I think. I might try a GeForce in it for fun. I quite like the ATI Rage/PowerVR/3DFX combo it’s running now though.

Stability is good so far but I’ve not really played anything for over an hour. I should def try looping something for a few hours. If you have any suggestions please let me know!

Awesome that's a really nice system. Can you use more than 128M in that system?

I’m not sure if it will take more than 64 so I’ll keep trying different combos when I can.

Here’s another comparison before and after the AMD k6 specific optimizations on a Matrox m3D running Unreal. Decent boost!

I was doing some searching for the ram capacity on this system and I was seeing people in different forums saying 256 was the max they could get and with having the K6-3 you'd be able to cache all of it too.

It runs well at 64 but there is some hitching I assume is disk swap. 256 would be nice.
