Did some benchmarking last night. Athlon 64 X2 6000+, 4GB DDR2-800, Radeon HD 3850 AGP :)





Need to pencil-mod the card to push the GPU even further... VPU Recover kicks in @ 810MHz and more VRAM OC starts to lower the score.

Oh Gosh! I used to have that board, its my first PCIe board coupled with Radeon X550. Fond memories, its very picky about what RAM it uses, unable to boot from my Corsair XMS memory but able to boot cheapo value RAM at the same speed.

This test is by no means new, in fact it was published in czech about 4 years ago...
Anyway, now I managed to translate it to english and republished it on my website http://hw-museum.cz/article/5/cpu-history-tour--1995---1999-/1

The ultimate plan was to cover CPU development between 1995 and present time (or at least close to it). I have two more parts complete and written in czech. And the foutrh one (which ends in 2007) measured completely, but no article written. There is a good chance I'll translate the other two parts sooner or later... but the rest is still unclear, will depend on my free time and will to continue. :)

Oh yeah, now that looks really awesome! Would love to see a 3dfx SLI config inside one of these... :)
Looking closer at that ECS motherboard it seems it had solder pads for a PCIe x16 slot. Doesn't look like a AGP slot to me unless the occupied slot is AGP.

Oh yeah, transparent case - I also loved it at the time. I even built one 10 years ago. It was impossible to buy one here, so I had to make my own design.
Btw - 3dfx SLI is not a problem here :D

Oh... No, no, you misunderstood me. What I meant to say is that I'd remove all this modern stuff & put a genuine Slot 1, or early S370 inside & then pair it with 3dfx :)

No disrespect to @Splinterdog's choice of hardware of course, but it's just not "my thing".

@havli AWESOME!! S478 rig?

I'm pretty sure it's PCIe. In fact, I had two cases like that and ended up selling them when the fad passed.Oh and I lost count of how many ECS motherboards that I had to bin in my shop.
They really were pretty bad in those days.

Yes, it is Epox 8k5a3+, the best KT333 board (that I know of). :)

@Trekkie4
So not s478, but socket 462 retro PC. With Athlon XP 3000+, 512 MB DDR, Voodoo5 5500 AGP, SB Live 5.1, Adaptec 29160N and bunch of 10k and 15k SCSI drives. :)
