CT63/CTPCI and Radeon cards

Postby viking272 » Mon Jan 22, 2018 5:33 pm

Hi,

I'm looking to get a Radeon 9250 PCI card, but am struggling to find the listing to see if it is a 3.3v or 5v card.
It looks like many are "universal" and can handle both voltages, so in theory it should work.

The card is a 128 MB PCI ATI Radeon 9250 with VGA and DVI outputs.

Has anyone experience of getting this to work, was it simple or maybe avoid this one?

I think I saw Ektus has this card, so that is positive if I remembered correctly.

Thanks

Radeon 9250 do work, but I've had a card where only VGA would work and DVI wouldn't. Should be somewhere in the "BIETE"-thread on atari-home.de. As for identifying the 3.3V cards: Those are dual-voltage and have two notches in the PCI connector.

There's the old thread (in German): https://forum.atari-home.de/index.php?topic=6982.0

There's a lengthy thread: https://forum.atari-home.de/index.php?topic=6984.125
Some cards work with both outputs, some with only VGA, even seemingly identical cards.

For compatible cards, see also at the bottom of http://powerphenix.com/ctpci/english/overview.htm

Thanks Ektus, much appreciated.
From what I read the Radeon 9250 does support both 3.3v and 5v, as the card is very cheap I think I may buy it to try.
I did read the R.Czuba website (PowerPhenix); couldn't find any 7000 or 7500 cards...

I have a Radeon 7000 card which I purchased for what was supposed to be my Falcon with CT60 and CTPCI. However the machine never arrived and the seller vanished :shrug:

Just found it the other day and was wondering what I should do with it if your interested? card is labelled ATI7000 64MB PCI VGA and has 2 VGA outputs and a RCA output.

Sorry to hear that acsi, hope you didn't lose money?

I've got bids on a couple of cards at the moment but if they fall through I will get in contact.

I just won a Radeon 9250 card :) £10.50 plus £4.50 postage, so not too bad.

I tried to get a Radeon to boot in the Milan but failed. viewtopic.php?f=96&t=12568

It might be interesting to find out which Radeon, if any, would boot in the Milan.

As Ektus points out there is a list of cards that the CTPCI drivers work for.

Are the CT63 and Milan's meant to be compatible with the same Radeon cards?

The TOS written by Didier for the CT63 understands radeon cards.
Does the TOS for Milan understand Radeon cards?
Anywhere in Milan docs that says so?

I found this guide to PCI voltage slots which might be helpful to others.

I received my Radeon card, I thought it was AGP but it does look like a Universal PCI 3.3v/5v card
