Nah, they were both AGP x8 equipped machines (PowerMac G5 and some generic PC with AGP x8 slot on the mobo). In a few days I'll get another X1950 Pro (this time a surely working one) and we will see... again.
I got another X1950 Pro, this time it was 100% working. I've tested it on a PC, with no problem. But on PowerMac G5 it doesn't give any sign of life. The fan is spinning, but there's no video.
I guess the AGP versions of R500 aren't so supported by MorphOS after all.
I am fairly certain that the AGP models (of the R500 series) are supported, as other people are using them.
And Mark did his development work with a Radeon X1950Pro installed in his G5 (rather like the combo you are attempting).
Again, I'd get the device ID for the card and contact Mark.
A PITA I know, but what other OS would you be likely to get that kind of level of assistance? ;÷)
Reviewing this entire idea again, I still don't believe a PC AGP X1950Pro @ 1X is going outperform an 8X Apple X800XT.
But the comparison would prove interesting.
Something tells me that the comparison would provide a strong argument for PCIe based systems.[ Edited by Jim 26.02.2018 - 18:43 ]
