Re: P III vs P4

So, going with the Pentium 4. Socket 478 or LGA 775? Is there an advantage one over the other? if you use both of these with the same chipset and kind of CPU performance will be the same, what is different is compatibility, lga 775 obviously has better compatibility with newer stuff, 478 with older …

Re: Crysis Remastered hitting Epic Store

in Milliways
the main problem with original Crysis is CPU usage, it's limited to really 2 cores but it's very heavy even for the latest 5GHz CPU at times, that's what I expect this remaster to fix, but the specs are certainly looking pretty high, RX 470 on the minimum side!? ouch one thing that is very …

Re: P III vs P4

I did have issues installing some programs due to lack of SSE2, but not the OS (XP) itself, I think I tried firefox 52 ESR and it failed for lack of SSE2, also a video player software, so yeah p4 would have an advantage with that alone, but for playing old games that's not really a factor.

Re: P III vs P4

P4 lowest desktop model was 1.3GHz but faster models were a lot more popular, clock for clock P4 is slower, but it can be clocked much higher on average, and have access to a faster bus/ram, so in general it's easy to say P4 was faster, still, lower models P4 can be slower than some P3s, as for …

Re: Today is Windows 95 25th Birrthday. Share your memories

I remember fairly well that my father had acquired a new Compaq CDS524 earlier that year, which came with windows 3.1, but as far as I know with the promise of a free windows 95 update, I remember it was delivered half unexpectedly months later it was a big box version, 7 years old me was even …

Re: Benchmark of my several vintage PC with different videocards ( i will update the first post )

I compared them a while back, so don't have exact numbers right now. However, there was a very noticeable difference in all my usual tests (GLQuake, Quake 2, Expendable, NFS 3, NFS4, 3DMark 99/2000). For GLQuake / Quake 2 it wasn't a big issue, because framerates were still very high, however for …

Re: Benchmark of my several vintage PC with different videocards ( i will update the first post )

@SPBHM, on a Coppermine, at lower resolutions, even the GeForce 2 MX is faster than a 4 MX (not to mention FX 5200). CPU overhead with newer drivers was always a thing (and it probably still is today, although to a lesser extent... since technological progress has not been as fast as it used to be …
