Re: GTS and Ali5

As a side note, I used Geforce DDR, GF2 MX and GTS always to find big BSODs on my Asus P5A. I then switched to a 3dfx Voodoo5 PCI and never looked back. It's the best card with that system both in stability and speed <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START ;) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/image...

Re: agp on p5a-b

Funny how with a P5-A/K6-III+ 550 I was experiencing a lot of freezes with IE5 and 5.5. Since I moved to IE6, no more glitches whatsoever. But I have to say that those boards were never to keen on Nvidia and AGP. I switched to a Voodoo 5 5500 PCI and system is now stable as rock. <p></p><i></i>

Re: Compatibility matrix: Asus P5A/A-B & AMD K6-2/3/3+

The k6-II and III are compatible with all P5A revision. The K6-II+ and III+ are only compatible with all version of P5A anterior to ver 1.05. Meaning 1.03, 1.04 will work with + but not the ones after. For best compatibility with the + CPU, use the latest beta 1.011.005 found on the deutch Asus webs...

Re: New Asus P5A beta Bios 1011 Ver.05

OK, I flashed and installed the new BIOS. I didn't see any new options compared to the beta .04 It works exactly identical as the prior bios. No better, no worse. I played Q3 for a while and it is as stable as before but no improvement nor decrease in performance. This bios is dated May 2nd 2002 so ...

Re: K6-III+

Jonwest, for reference with my K6-III+ 550 and my V5 PCI, I get, in 1024x768x16bit using Q3 with all option to the max, 45.5 FPS in demo1. As for UT always using Glide, I get around 57 FPS. It depends very much of the drivers you use and the OS. For Win98, always use the 3dfx 1.04.01 beta drivers wh...
