    Also, do you have any rom shadowing or memory remapping options turned on in the BIOS? Does the motherboard have jumpers that define the amount of ram, which was common on older 286s.

    Minus Zero Degrees IBM XT memory mod.

    This article talks about adding 640K to an older XT motherboard. It says you add the 32KB chips to bank 0 and 1. My questions is whether or not I will get 1MB if I also put 32KB chips in banks 2 and...

    Is your ISA bus also running at 12Mhz? If so, are all your chips 80ns or faster? If it is 6Mhz, are they all at least 150ns or faster? Does it has jumpers for RAS and CAS? Are they set correctly?...

    Mine was one of the later ones. It was a weird system. 1.5Ghz VIA CPU, with DDR2 RAM and PCIE.

    It did just occur to me that I can at least verify that Windows 98 will run on a VIA C7. The nice thing about VIA chipsets is all of them have 9X drivers.

    How so?



    I have been wanting to see if the BIOS from my late model 386 board (another discrete logic design, sadly defunct) would operate it, but I don't know how to join the BIOS files.

    2/66Mhz vs 33Mhz

    I was playing with my big discrete logic board 486 again, and discovered that an unmarked jumper selects how the oscillator crystal is used. The normally fixed position that the board was sold with...

    I actually tried to install something on a C7 once and it failed because of a missing instruction, but I forgot what it was. I think it was a Linux distro. :/

    Did you actually see Windows 95 run on those VIA C series processors? I would have thought it would crash when presented with something that fast. The fastest thing I have seen 95 work on was a PIII...

    I have noticed some variance, but usually these are done a couple times. The 6.8 FPS is indeed consistent.

    A quick scan of the board turns up the 18th week of 1991 for the most recent date.



    You may call it nitpicking, but this is, for me, anyway, part of the fun. To see how things compare. To see...

    Why is this board so fast?

    Well, fast for a given value of fast, anyway. ;) Nonetheless, with an Intel DX2 66 (write through) and a Cirrus Logic GD5422 (STB Horizon), I get 6.8 FPS in the Quake Time Demo. I cannot get any of...

    amount of cache vs amount of memory.

    When it comes to cacheing ram, I understand one needs:
    64KB for 8MB
    128KB for 16MB
    256KB for 32MB
    512K for 64MB
    ..and so on.

    Is there any advantge to be had by having more than required...
