wow das seht er sehr geil aus GAT
this is funny
the name of the seller as the way he discribes the 5500 AGP lawl
"Up for sale is a used Voodoo 5 5500 64mb AGP HiNT Revision 2 Video Card"
It seemed that there were only 400.000 people at the CeBit this year about 20% than last year and that there were many empty spaces in the halls it was kept, as what tweakers.net explained heh:
As many seemed to have found it rather less amusing as the replies go heh, looks like the same type of thing that happened with HCCC/HME 2008, as that there were many kids givng away free stuff such as worthless gadets as such.
There still seems to be problems with Win 2K Pro + SP4, after some time I have to login again, heh.
It's always the voltage...

Stabil? Ich denk nicht. Kühlbar? Wohl auch nicht.. Aber für CPU-Z hat's ja Mal gereicht.
Now thisis more like it, you seemed to have reached the magical 4000Mhz barrier, but does it run stable? I surely hope so, 4000Mhz is a very nice rounded number right
It is 4x 400Mhz per core, hence the Hyper Threading does not count as real cores, still a very nice achievement if it runs stable at this awesome speed
I wish you all the best, if it doesn't try to increase it's V-Core.
May The Force Be With You Admiral.
hehe thanx Bull well those black ones seem to have been the variants tha ran core / mem: 850Mhz to 1000 Mhz / 2250 DDR to 2400 Mhz DDR, these Black coolered red cards were the fastest XTX cards of every batch.
Though the one I amd seeking is where it all began this beauty

The point is , if the card Niels, Tweakstone and you have is very hard to find and since ATi still exists, finding that black one and this clear model is almost near to impossible, I will seek out Sir R. Larose and see if He can scoop up more info about this oddball.
ich hab damals bei meiner 2900Pro Ati Flash ( oder wars Ati WinFlash?) benutzt, lief unter Windows und war recht einfach.
geht aber auch mit GPU-Z, da ist hinter dem Feld "Bios version" nen kleiner button wo man das Bios sichern kann
I will look for it, give me 5 minutes
I found these two numbers, not sure if this is the PCB-Date...
Yes this is it!
0646 means year 2006 wek 46!! your is much older than the one Niels has which is 0705 year 2007 week 05 as the one I had which Tweakstone now has 0704 year 2007 week 04, also your card has dual fan connectors Tweakstone's and Niels' card have only one.
Thjis is very interesting week 46 of year 2006 hmm interesting, you may have one of the first Rev.A1's the Rev.A02 had a black cooler and the Rev.A01 had the clear cap coolerm the Rev.A01 is from late 2006 and the Rev.A02 is from mid 2006 so it could mean that the Rev.A1 is from Q4 2006 which resembles your card and that ATi gave the XTX a last chance with the cards from week 04 en 05 from 2007 as their last attempt with the HD 2900 XTX project, thanx for showing me mate!
So with your card known that it's an older variant of the rev.A1 we now know that there are 4 different cards:
Here's a pic of the Rev.A01 HD 2900 XTX

Here's a pic of an early Rev.A1 HD 2900 XTX the 0646 with Dual fan connectors:

And here's the shot of the Rev.A1 0704 VGA card Tweakstone has & Niels has as well, the Rev.A1 0705 same card basically:
[Blocked Image: http://www.3dfx.ch/gallery/d/3102…ototype+top.JPG]
so what are the changes? well better bios for support with later drivers and one fan connector lesser heh and maybe better ram timings as such for the rest the card installs as a HD 2900 XT 1GB I dunno about the Rev.A1 0646 though, could be that GPU-Z sees it as a R600 XTX , it detected mine as that from Niels as a R600XT with 1GB of 512Bit GDDR4 @ 2020Mhz DDR and the VPU @ 743 Mhz, I suppose ATi gave it the HD 2900 XT 1GB GDDR4 Bios, it did OC easily to core / mem 850Mhz / 2250Mhz DDR , Niels and I did this with his card.
Sometime during the next month I will seek up an Original Built By Ati Hd 2900 XT 1GB and see how different this one performs from the HD 2900 XTX and HD 2900 XT 512MB, I'll keep you updated as I progress.
just a few days ago I came across this thread where someone ran Dual HD 2900 XTX's in CF, might be interesting to read for ya
Page 3 of that test shows the CF results, which is here, about 1/3 down the page:
Hey Bull could you try and find the PCB date of your HD 2900 XTX Rev.A1 for me?
It's because that I think you have a much older card which could explain your difficulties, what you could do, is ask Tweakstone for a bios dump of his card, flash that bios to yours and this should solve your card's problems
und warum steht dann da
If you read somewhat further than your eyes could see ...
"I do not ship internationally to avoid complications and because the shipping for this card would likely exceed the cost of the card itself. I have never shipped to Germany so I don't know how much it would cost but I could check if you are willing to pay for shipping and have the package be registered so that I can confirm delivery."
Which means he would ship outside USA IF you'd be willing to pay the high shipping fee for the card...

Sind schon etwas ältere Bilder von meiner FX5800
Und ein guter alter Athlon64
Awesome shots, btw your NV30 aka G30 is from year 2003 week 04 and it's a Rev.A2, as I read on the second line: 0304A2, kinda late for this chi p heh the most were from week 47 ywar 2002 As for your A64 3K it's from year 2004 week 30 aka 0430
heh, 830 watts at load is a lot, that would be of the entire setup right? I think the VGA's would do around 480 a 530 watts stand alone.
And how far did you OC your i7 920? 5000Mhz?
I'd like to see some scores of this monster you built GAT, btw that Austrian Built CPU cooler looks alot like a remake of the Thermalright Ulta 120 nice catch man.
this is the Evaluation board of the 5500 AGP not even the production board, this board was once reviewed by X-Bit Labs just before the launch of the production 5500 AGP, which was the Rev.A 1900

with Bios 1.05
[Blocked Image: http://www.xbitlabs.com/images/video/v…0/drivers-5.jpg]
As you can see it runs like every other 5500 AGP we all have, @ 166Mhz cores / ram. Well most of us have a 5500 AGP right ;), the only real differences it has is the location of it's PCB date, the PCB date it's self is very early aka week 18 of year 2000 and finally it's bios is a lot older than the oldest bios known on the production cards which is the famous bios 1.06
Evaluation boards are the cards that were sent to the press for previews and reviews
Rottentreats got the Rev.A 1800 for USD 224,72 heh not bad, kinda cheap for such an ultra rare Evaluation card
The odd thing is that Murfi made a high bid, but it seems that he pulled himself back, thereby retrieving his bid, heh.
I posted that a few days ago
Quantum 3D Heavy metal System with an AA5 AAlchemy 8232 256MB VGA card, looks like a Duallie P3 S370 system:
Seller is Gamma742, he's a friend from gdonovan heh.
That 300PCI box isn't easy to find especially the USA one so for that one it ain't that expensive hehe it'sUSD and NOT Euro's which most do seem to forget 1 EURO = 1,28 USD you can check @ XE.COM
welcome to Voodooalert btw.
This is kinda insane 3dfx.net for 200K USD hels!
yeah Mushkin does have the upper hand in some things same goes Kingston & Geil.
To be honest, I had massive troubles with Corsair as well, but that's just a bad experience then, maybe GAT never had troubles with Corsair, so for maybe that behalf I can understand him sticking to it
And really the ASUS P6T is one of the best X58 mobo's there, as I do read many neagitve post about ASUS , but I can tell you guys my Dual OpteronDP 285 E6 has an ASUS Server board the K8N DL and it ran with Dual 270's 2 years 24/7 as a heavy file server it never crashed once, ASUSm is very well known for pure stability, as OCing goes I have no idea since that isn't my interest, but DFI is more like the best OC mobo brand since it has mainly the highest OC records.
This system will shine and it will give you a very good example what Super HD rendering is all about, that 30" Dell TFT of yours, now it will become very VERY useful I wish you all the best with this rendering Cuda monster mate.
