I'm back again with some news :)

My Pericom adapter arrived today, thanks to Osckhar !

Of course that some tests were inevitable

I will compare it also with the PLX adapter, that i also own.

3Dmark2001 - 3307 points, without any kind of overclocking.



With PLX i get around 2950 points.

About the 66Mhz or 33Mhz operation...
First of all, in all aplications there is no sign that the adapter is running @66Mhz !
Look here in Aida software...( same status as with the PLX adapter )



I take a look also with the SIV application:





I was amazed to see that the status of the pericom adapter are the same as for the PLX adapter !

The Status of Pericom adapter is also 0x0010 ! ( same as PLX, were bit 5 is 0 -> 33 Mhz ) - here i expect the Bit 5 to be set to 1 !
The status of Voodoo5 also the same as when using the PLX adapter 0x80B0. ( this is normal )

For the Pericom adapter i get the information that the current clock is 33Mhz/66Mhz !...not very explicit...

And..i thought that the next stept is to mod the adapter with the sale tape ...i mod the adapter 3 times, using differents tapes.
Also i used 3 different voodoo5 cards, that i own.
Everytime there was no boot, no start..just black screen.

The adapter won't work if the pin 49b is covered with tape.
I checked also if the Pin49b is connected to ground. And the answer is YES, the same as by the PLX adapter !

Another intersting thing...one of my 3 voodoo5 has a custom bios flashed...this card works very well in the pci slot....but when using it together with the pericom adapter leads to system freeze !
That was not happent with the PLX adapter....that's indicates that the pericom adapter more sensible is as the PLX adapter !

@Osckhar and voodoo56k :
You own also this adapter.
Can you please take a look what Aida and SIV applications reports ( in your sistems ) ?
Some screenshots will be nice !
Thanks guys !

Follow your dreams !

Nice find Michael !

I take a look on my adapters again....



So here are both adapters to see.

I manage also to change some bit values :)

The pericom adapter seems to be very instable.
Sometimes runs very well sometimes lead to sysrem freezes.
I test it with 3 differents voodoo5 5500 pci cards and the behavioir is the same.
The cards are running well with the plx adapter or in the pci slot.
Thats why i assume that the adapter is not very stable.
Or maybe its a compatibility problem with my mobo.
The adapter was tested in both pcie slots...no differences!

I test the adapter in win7 and winxp with different drivers..including sfft, amigamerlin and koolsomkey....
Example: the system freeze in 3dmark2001 on the first two tests...

@osckhar and voodoo56k: did you notice this instability too?


Follow your dreams !

V5 PCI@189Mhz + Pericom pci2pcie Adapter + Win XP + Koolsmokey Driver



Without overclocking the voodoo, the score is 3300 points.
So that rising the clock from 166Mhz to 189Mhz adds 431 points !
The 4000points wall is not far, and can be achieved with a 200Mhz voodoo5

Anyway, the score is a proof enough for me that the adapter is working @66Mhz, and NO modding ( sell tape on Pin49B ) is required !

I notice that in WinXP the Pericom adapter is more stable that under Win7.
In Win7 the lookups are very frecvently, in WinXP very very rare !
Responsible for this could be also the Pericom Driver.

Even overclocked, the voodoo5 is not able to play HD movies...

Follow your dreams !

ok, I know you are very proud of your hardware, but I expect new pictures now from other users. As I said one or two pictures are enough, could you clean a little please ?
It is not useful to post pictures several times if they are already on others locations.

Details on the '66mhz boost' offered by Pci-express bridging.

Tested with SFFT 1.9 on my configuration running on Win7.
The Opteron CPU clocked @2800 mhz and the V5 5500 pci-express clocked I/O @66 mhz and core @180 mhz
leads to a 4133 points 3Dmark2001 score with the following parameters : 1024*768 / 16 bits color / Double Buffer.

Look at the '66Mhz boost' on Triangles, Vertex shaders and Point Sprite tests.
