I managed to get OpenGL up and running on the Matrox Millennium G450. (It required an older driver, as Matrox dropped OpenGL support for these cards with their later driver releases!) I used the: "2kxp_593_009.exe" driver to get it to work!
Here are the results from the Matrox Millennium G450 card running on this Pentium Pro machine @200MHz with 192MB of RAM:
I' going to be purchasing two 36 GB Hitachi Ultrastar, 15K73 series, model DK32EK-36NW / HUS157336EL3600 drives from the same seller as I'm purchasing the RAID card from.
Eliminating the need for 68-pin to 80-pin adapters. It's going to be a RAID 0 setup, and I'd like the best data/electrical connection possible for this purpose, as the adapters can come loose in my experience, however it is going to cost me a bit more for these drives.
What I love about systems from this era was the shear number of companies and manufacturers vying for consumers with competing technologies and hardware platforms. Intel, AMD, Cyrix, ATI, Matrox, Creative, SiS, HP, Dell, Gateway, 3Dfx etc. but it was the competing technologies that really made this era interesting.
Besides being an improved core, the Pentium II Overdrive chip runs at 333MHz instead of the 200MHz that this chip runs at and it will also give the system MMX technology and better 16-BIT application support.
Unlike the Pentium II's cache which runs at half the CPU speed, the Pentium II Overdrive's cache runs at the full CPU speed! (333MHz!!!)
Very neat! My original AMD K6-200 system ran so hot I had to make a hole in the side of the case and install another fan. I did end up having it spray painted with 2 pack paint in the same colour as the Indigo Affording a SGI in SA in those days was but a dream.
