Do not compare newer ratings to older ones, the newer ratings are much more aggressive. All graphics processors have to actually output to a screen at some point, and this requires reading the entire frame buffer and outputting appropriate data to the screen. There are few jumpers required for set up, basically one set for the processor multiplier and another for the bus speed. Around the main chips are some of the reference silk-screen, which are quite handy, but are unfortunately quite distant from the jumpers they are a reference for! Modern PCs with on-board graphics also usually share the system memory with the GPU, and this is where the performance hit usually originates from.

Random mutterings on retro computing, old technology, some new, plus radio controlled scale modelling. There are far fewer chips on this board compared to the older Gigabyte board I photographed last time.
Some notable features include dual power input and optional on-board video. Still, you could set this up without the manual.

Do this 60 times a second and you get , bytes per second or about It is a late socket 3 board that supports fast chips and the Pentium Overdrive. Also note the very large power diodes very near to the SCSI port, quite an unusual feature! For socket 7 boards in particular the bus speed would make a big difference mms-6153 the maximum performance of the system as a whole. All graphics processors have to actually output to a screen at some point, and this requires reading the entire frame buffer and outputting appropriate data to the screen.
This board has a VIA chip-set and is marked MS, but if you search for that online you turn up a board that looks almost identical but has an Intel chip-set instead. The newer memory would have been more expensive per Megabyte, so excluding the sockets was probably not a big deal for cost minded consumers. I doubt that part would achieve full performance on the particular board as the bus speed maximum is 75Mhz. These cache chips are marked as Writeback, which turns out to be the chip maker rather than the cache type.
On-board GPUs have a significant advantage in some areas, such as the CPU being able to write draw essentially directly to the frame buffer, and the GPU being able to read texture data directly from system memory. CPU support seems to be up to Mhz from the jumper settings chart printed on the board. The bundled CD-ROM includes all the basic driver files, in addition to the SoftCooler utility mentioned above, and Microstar’s inhouse developed System Monitor software that basically outputs the same information values voltages, etc Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.
To hide the fact they had a chipset like that they stuck stickers with the chip markings of other manufacturers over the laser etchings.

About Links Code Downloads Series index. The final retail version of the board may change that, however we’ll have to wait to find out. Like other socket 3 boards this one has some cache on board in the form of the SRAM chips. Although this particular board still has a few jumpers. This particular offering from ASUS was obviously a commodity board with sockets for the older but cheaper main memory, the lower chip count and small form factor.
In this case if we were copying the same bitmap repeatedly we could half the bandwidth required as the whole bitmap could be stored in the cache. The graphics chips took up much of the memory bandwidth, essentially slowing down the machines CPU quite severely under certain conditions. The software bundled with the consists of MSI’s SoftCooler, a Software CPU Cooling Device that allows the processor to essentially “rest” while it is waiting for user input to begin processing another item, and depending on your CPU usage patterns, this software may significantly reduce the heat production and power consumption of your CPU.
The Socket board makes use of the same Intel BX chipset found in slot-1 motherboards, meaning that the features the market is used to have been ported over with a few new surprises.
This particular example is a M6TBA ver 1. This story in fact starts off way back in the micro computer era of C64 and ZX spectrum, which essentially had integrated ber.

Modern PCs with on-board graphics also usually share the system memory with the GPU, and this is where the performance hit usually originates from. I was given this particular board by a colleague who knew I like to collect old parts. Boards like this one were and still are quite unusual for the PC architecture, most only have one CPU socket to keep costs low and the complexity of the motherboard down.
