Second Toshiba, with a better display. I use this for late 80’s and early 90’s games. The screen can be removed and a vga monitor can be connected.

And it’s in the Toshiba T5200. And even with the most ineffective settings turned on, there’s a nice speedboost. My testgame was Raptor: Call of the Shadow, which would really slow down when the shooting and explosions start. Now it runs a lot smoother, and it should improve with better settings. And it needs a heatsink, as these upgrade CPU’s run HOT🔥
2 Texas Instruments TI486DLC/E 33 processors in PGA132 format. These are upgrade CPU’s for 386DX motherboards and can give these older motherboards quite a boost. It should boost the performance of my Toshiba T5200 (386DX @ 20MHz) quite a bit. The other one will be tested in my IBM P70, also a 386dx @20MHz. These are the 1kb cache memory models without a clockdoubler. I’m still searching for a SXL 40 or SXL2 50, which have 8kb cache and a clockdoubler.
Picked up a second T5200 today, as a parts machine. It had 12mb of ram and runs windows 95 (on a 386...). It was extremly dirty inside and floppydrive is not working. But... I now have 12mb of ram, instead of 4, in my T5200/100. Which is a really welcome upgrade. Note, Toshiba uses a special 40pin simm, which are almost impossible to find on their own.
Using a ZIP100 paralel Drive to play games on a 386. It’s a little slow loading the games in, but works great otherwise. Nice and easy way to expand my Toshiba’s T5200 harddrive. The game shown is a shareware version of Traffic department 2192, i found it on a cdrom hidden in boxes at my parents house. Nostalgia kickes in and well... let’s have another go at it. I remember this beeing a fun game.
