Re: WOW...I'm blown away, this site is STILL up!

Skalabala, Can you tell me here the reasoning behind the very strange results obtained on 3dmark2000 that are claimed to be superior to fx ones? According to the author of the discussion you linked, a geforce 3ti card should be faster than a fx5900... Of course it is not, even a fx5700 destroyed it ...

Re: Maybe I found the King of the hill??

Well the Electric conditions should not be a problems, as the 6800 ultra has molex, so it not really on agp slot only. Plus, the nv40 does not have a Bridge (this is the problem with agp 2x). I tested it on a p3b-f (440bx and agp 2x), with success. Not sure about the drivers you mentioned, am I forg...

Re: Maybe I found the King of the hill??

I will try something totally insane during Xmas vacation (if my wife will not kill me). I have a Asus V9999 AGP (6800 Ultra NV40. Native AGP, no bridge), I will cut a second hole on the AGP connector and see if it can be handled by the AGP 2X slot of my Gigabyte. I did it before for a 440BX VGA, but...

Re: Maybe I found the King of the hill??

There you go Peter! I managed to sort out of the PCI mode problem, it was coolbits that messed all up. This is my 3Dmark2001SE and I think a new record.

Re: Maybe I found the King of the hill??

Hi all, little update. I installed 56.64 drivers after ali drivers 1.82, it appears that this procedures succesfully enabled AGP acceleration. BUT performace wise, the system is really slow (2800 3dMark2001 points :shock: ) I reverted to 52.16 but AGAIN, even forcing the Ali AGP registry, I am in PC...

Re: Maybe I found the King of the hill??

Little update, With the aid of CTU, now I get those results for Everest: 368-172-202 (single stick of 512Mbyte as before) I am really happy with that. Now the problems is still the VGA that is installed in PCI mode. As soon as I install the drivers, at windows startup, a message comes saying to me t...

Re: Maybe I found the King of the hill??

Update,
maybe I found the problem, activating nvidia coolbits I am able to see agp status also, and it is set on PCI mode.
AGP tool 1.4 is not accurate, better if I don't use it.

I am trying to solve the PCI fallback problem.

Re: Maybe I found the King of the hill??

Overclocked the K6-III+@633 (115x5.5) These are everst 2.2 results: 332-80-214 I think I have poor write performances I reverted to ALI AGP 1.6 From AGP tool 1.4 I see: AGP 2X ; GAT mode 0; fram...

Re: Maybe I found the King of the hill??

Update, 3 hours trying to install properly the Radeon card. It is really promising, but it crashes 3dmark2001se. I installed ali 1.9 AGP that seems to be stable, much more than 1.6, but I am not able to find a good Catalyst. Someone at Vogons forum used the 3.8 version that contains vxd files, but I...

Re: Maybe I found the King of the hill??

Today I will be back from work earlyer, so I can complete the installation of Win98SE. I will test this first. I got the fx5900xt, and I will use your 52.16 drivers with ali drivers 1.81 Then I will test a weird Radeon 9800xt 256mbyte 128bit. It has Samsung rams rated for 300mhz DDR and 3.3ns, packi...

Re: Maybe I found the King of the hill??

With ali AGP tool I can set GAT mode 2, but I don't know if it is functional.
I will reinstall win98SE WITHOUT unofficial service packs and I will use a single 256mbyte sticks (I used 1gb of RAM).
I did not optimize with vpcredit, I don't remember how to do it :oops:
