Bigeye #20: A Crippled Voodoo5
Created on June 13, 2020
If you really want a configuration that nobody would even consider in a practical setup, try putting a Voodoo5 in a system with a 75MHz Pentium. It's gotta be the PCI variant, too, because Socket 7 systems with AGP often will not run at a 50MHz FSB.
On top of the Voodoo5, tighter memory timings in the 430HX chipset make Quake run a little faster. To maximize torture, maybe you could run this on a slower 430FX chipset. Though it's still not that bad given the Voodoo5 manages to offload a lot of rendering work even at 800x600.
It might be worth noting that the P/I-XP55T2P4 is one of the earliest ATX motherboards, probably originating from late 1996. The earliest revisions can take either an AT or ATX power supply, so there's potential for a very unusual kind of ATX build.
