the d-sub should have no problems with this (you will have to add the resolution with powerstrip),but its not possible on the dvi (if you have a pc flashed v5 mac)..

If you are using SFFT 1.5 drivers, the most elegant solution would be editing the inf file yourself.

Just add these lines to 3dfxvs2k.inf
quote:
HKR,"TIMINGS\1680,1050\60Hz",,,"GTF"
HKR,"TIMINGS\1680,1050\60Hz",Supported,,"BPP+8+16+32,DDRAW"


A reinstall would apply it, upon next boot you should be at 16:10.

Ah right, that was a first generation of digital video output, wasn't it. Those extra 80 pixels wide would make me buy Mac

found the same chip on the fx5800 ultra:



i don't have such a card, but maybe somebody who has ist can test if with the ndivia drivers a resolution of 1680x1050 is possible :) ( on DVI of course )

Follow your dreams !

I remember that i have a gf4 Ti4600 in the closed, with the same DVI chipset :)

so that i put both cards together, to see what i mean.

More than that, i install the ti4600 into my computer, and.....
it's displayed at 1650x1080 !!!!




It seems that the drivers are the problem for our voodoo5 cards and not the chip itself !

Follow your dreams !

ok, so after some researches and tests i manage to get this resolution ( 1680x1050 ) to work on D-SUB, and not on DVI.
On DVI i get a blurry/unsharp image dunno why....

For D-SUB, this is what have to be done:
1. edit the file 3dfxvs2k.inf of the driver. This file is located into the driver instalation kit.
2. Add following rows ( where the other resolutions settings are ):

HKR,"TIMINGS\1680,1050\60Hz",,,"GTF"
HKR,"TIMINGS\1680,1050\60Hz",Supported,,"BPP+8+16+32,DDRAW"

3.save the file, and reinstall the driver !
4.reboot and enjoy the new resolution.

Here is a screenshoot:

@SFFT: Please add this feature into the next release of the SFFT driver :)

Thanks !


And here is the file, in any case :)
