Yep.. Thanks for that. They're a really interesting beast. Like a 486 with some pentium'ish optimisations, but a few compatibility gotchas and they don't appear like a pentium in software.
Kinda funny really. They're a really good "486 class" CPU and make a 486 motherboard really hit above it's paygrade... Had the capability to quite seriously extend the life of the 486 in a manner similar to the "super socket 7" stuff of the pentium era if it weren't for one thing... The weak FPU sidelined them and pretty much all other things cyrix almost overnight when one key piece of software (quake) was released in 1996.

Groan. The worst part was the length of time it took me to get that. Yes, I think that board is capable of 3.3v. Variable valve timing... mmm.. probably not.SpidersWeb wrote:Bids have already started so I don't fancy my chances.
Yep. I've opened bidding. See ya in the mosh-pit. I have a "rarer than rocking-horse-sh*t" 83MHz Pentium overdrive CPU sitting waiting to go in... UNLESS it's a proper Intel DX4, in which case I may leave it alone.

That Amstrad is interesting, Z80 CPU but modern designs, 256KB RAM and a 720K disk drive - I assumed it was a PC clone but apparently it's not.
