I have similar looking ET6100 with 4,5MB... But again - that's overkill for those cards.

That's Gainward.

Never noticed that modded resistor on the back there, what might that one be for ?

Do all the ET6100 or ET6000 cards have this ?

Oh wow thanks for letting me know. One more mystery solved 😀

Finally traced down a 386 model that was missing in my collection.

I'd love to. But this seems to be a J38605DX model which is a variant that needs its own mb. Need to do some research.

This AMD 386 board with no liquid damage. (thanks to GS Saft "Sealed NiCd battery")

Standby Mode (Am386SXL/SXLV Only)
The true static design of the Am386SXL/SXLV micro-
processor allows for a Standby Mode. At any operating
speed, the microprocessor will retain its state (i.e., the
contents of all its registers). By shutting off the clock
completely, the device enters Standby Mode. Since
power consumption is proportional to clock frequency,
operating power consumption is reduced as the fre-
quency is lowered. In Standby Mode, typical current
draw is reduced to less than 20 microamps at DC. Not
only does this feature save battery life, but it also sim-
plifies the design of power-conscious portable applica-
tions in the following ways.

Runs great, without any problems. I love that purple pcb.
I bought a brand new Geforce4 heatsink off Ebay some time ago and it only felt right to give it to this one. It almost looks brand new now.

GF4 Ti 8x (4800SE) and a Voodo4 4500

The ti4800SE is just missing that unique heasink. Seems to be in good condition.

I finally found a Voodoo4. In theory, it still may be repairable. The pcb is intact with no broken traces. However I'm not skilled enough to ball solder a new VSA100, let alone have the tools. If nothing else, I could use it to repair any Voodoo4s I may come across in the future.

Geforce256 and a Mach64 PCI

I'm pretty sure its a GF256. That heatsink is glued on tight. And I'm afraid of removing it. The only question is whether its an SDR or DDR version.

I never used a Mach64. I don't know much about it.

The SB2.0 is missing its OPL chip. I don't have any spares, but one of my other cards can loan it for testing.

This Tseng card seems perfect for my 386 build.

Now here's something interesting. A Nvidia NV1, which is unfortunately missing its eprom.
I didn't see any memory expansion modules at the ewaste site.
I already ordered a Sega Saturn controller breakout card off Ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/324735975372?h ... w6Z5g8NeS I don't have any of the cables that I need for it though.

I think the Kelvin 64 VLB uses a Cirrus Logic CL-GD5434, it should be pretty fast.

Just plain old dish wash liquid and hot water with a cotten rag will be fine for the most part. Just be care around the top vent. Using a few cotten buds for them i'd say.

There's a glitch in the matrix.

Of course, as always, I'm open to correction...😉
