this isnt really a tutorial its more of a finding that i thought i would share.
i have an old intel triton 430VX 200mhz that was running with two sticks of
FPM(8MB a piece) in bays 0 and 1 and two sticks of EDO(also 8MB a piece) in 2 and 3. then
a 64MB stick of SDRAM in the only SDRAM bay. now the SDRAM didnt read the full 64MB, which sucks, but it had a total of 44MB and ran quite smoothly. even games like half-life and baldurs gate II ran like it would on a 500. (granted i have a voodoo3 2000 in it) but anyway, if someone could tell me how this is working or even if its supposed to then i'd like to know.
