I believe matthemodder hit 286. You'd have to do some looking, or asking. I have hit very high clockspeeds, but stability takes a nosedive after 276Mhz. From our assumptions at dcdev, 2 things could be holding it back from clocking higher: 1. CPU voltage 2. Slow memory It is possible that the vcore ...

that has boggled my mind. To do that we might as well just rewrite the software for the serial/usb cable to work like a NIC. I know years ago Atani was trying to write some sort of library that would allow for identical networking over serial or bba. Something like that would be 100% easier than wh...

The serial port isn't really fast enough to drive a NIC very well, and you'd be throwing away the key advantage of the serial port - a simple and standard (for SuperH) interface. I think a USB-serial adapter would really be a better use of the serial port, especially considering that you'd probably...

A new NIC design would be easy (though actually producing it might not be). Problem is most people seem to want a BBA clone. I don;t care about a clone. That'd be too difficult to accomplish to make it worth the effort. However, a new NIC running thru, say, the Dreamcast's Serial Port (most underus...

More or less, I would suggest the DC community focus on a new NIC first, as a HDD is highly unecessarry when you can stream. And you can use a NIC for a LOT more.

Thats my 2 bits.

It is the Frame Buffer. Check Yahoo dcdev. If you aren't subscribed, I highly suggest you do:

How many times do I have to tell you all, the 54Mhz signal is NOT the graphics clock! The graphics clock is simply drawn from the 33Mhz signal as well. The 54Mhz signal is for frame buffer. I was told that by the person who designed the god damned "GPU". I believe that makes the 3rd time I have said...

Rev2: Most rare and sought after DC. lulz, odd. A GameCrazy near me has about 4. I buy up any non Rev2's, since I mess around with them. Also, I just traded for a launch Dreamcast (I mean a LAUNCH Dreamcast, 9-9-99) that still works. I plan on dissecting that as well. Also, thanks for the bump peop...

Different DC internal components...

Noticing the changes in the DC hardware itself (Rev0,1,2), I have begun to look at the actual components, and found they are also different. I am trying to compile a list of components that came in different DCs, to see which ones overclock and or run better. -- Revision 0 Motherboard (unknown manuf...

Funny thing is, the plate you are removing was part of the heat spreader. Air going to the vent cooled the spreader, in turn cooling the CPU and others. my sugestion would be this: Find some cheapo small ram-sinks, and place them upside down, on the plate, air flow still going in. If they are small ...

Out of curiousity, GPF, has the horrendous lag been repaired? Like, instead of straight CPU emulation, is the GPU being used? The last one was SLOOOOOOW.
