Slowing Down a Pentium Class Processor and Motherboard
Posted on 2000-03-27
I know a lot of people are going to ask, "Why would anyone want to do this?"
Here's the deal. I currently have a piece of hardware connected through an ISA AT-GPIB board. The computer that is controlling this equipment is a 386. I know that this PC is going to take a dive on me one day and I would like to be able to use a Pentium Class CPU and Motherboard to control this equipment. The problem is that the bus speeds on these motherboards are too fast and do not allow proper control of the slower hardware that I'm working on. Since I'm only slightly familiar with how all of this works, can someone tell me if it's possible to slow the I/O bus speeds down on the newer motherboard?
