Re: Coronavirus chatter

in Milliways
it will be too late for a lockdown to have much of an effect, because deaths trail the number of infections by about 1-2 weeks. The youth thinks it's just a bad flu - guess that's why Italy has been having 500+ deaths a day for the last week, eh? :rolling_eyes: Quite a few people seem to have this …

Re: Coronavirus chatter

From what I`ve understood and I am not expert, just a common person, of this situation the important thing seems to be the time factor along with what seems to be an inevitable but mitigable contagion. The more the graph curve of the numbers (y) versus the time factor (x) is flat and the more time …

Everybody is just waiting for warm weather. This bug doesn't seem to affect people when the temperature is high. There seems to be various opinion on it but in Italy there is the hope the spring and summer will help to mitigate or help reducing the numbers that are quite high but also some experts …

You know reviews at the time said the v3 really should have been called the banshee2, and only wasn't due to marketing. The voodoo4 should have been the v3, and the rampage should have gone head to head with geforce. But really, it was the business decision to shaft oems that killed them, but it is …

As soon as the original GeForce dropped, the writing was on the wall for many other card makers. The Voodoo 4/5 arriving late and without features and performance that nVidia cards had, was the end for 3DFX. ATi was the only one that upped their game enough to remain competitive, and they had a few …

Re: A TNT2 32MB is apparently better than a 16MB Voodoo 3 3000?

in Milliways
As far as I remember in many discussions and reviews the TNT2 were considered a "better" card than the usual Voodoo3 2000/3000. The whole "16 bit colors is enough" helped a bit along with the Glide APIs that were already in their last moments. As others said, I'd say the Voodoo2 with the SLI option …
