Just recently I posted the article TT VME Bus Fix - Does it really make it faster? where I compared performance before and after Atari's VME Bus Fix which all REV.H motherboards and up seem to have. As kind of expected, the gains were not significant. I mean we would have noticed this years ago. What is unexpected, however, is the sudden performance boost (on average) than just a few days ago. So what has changed? Am I missing something? If so, let me know.
Before I show the results, here's what has changed (I'll list everything even if it is seemingly unrelated):
- Motherboard recapped
Rest of the rework done (My TT Gets Some Love)
New storage (TT Cable Management and Cooling - Extreme Edition)
New HDDriver version 10.12
Lightning USB installed and drivers loaded
New GAL and hardware mod to Nova as per Lightning installation.
Fresh NVDI 5.03 installation with Nova option. (SYS files disabled as before).
New English version of menu.prg
- NVDI version
Nova drivers apart from menu.prg
Test OS TOS 3.06 Thunder&Lightning edition
