Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

Even Doom was/is better. Even DOOM? Duke3D, Blood, etc are good but DOOM is pure distilled awesome. I loaded up Shadow Warrior last night for the first time in a while and geez it sounds good, it looks good, but I just can't stand that game for some reason. Shadow Warrior is incredibly annoying in …

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

While I understand some people might not agree I think tablets and smart phones are a wonderful invention. I haven't really used Android stuff and don't care for it. I prefer Apple. The funny thing? Once I saw that movie about Steve Jobs I was kind of amazed about what an *** he apparently was. At …

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

Modern (soon to be) retro hardware*, anything above Pentium 3 is boring. Everything either just works out of the box or completely broken. While I'm fascinated with pre-386 hardware and the technical solutions in software to utilize the limited hardware, from a consumer's perspective, I borderline …

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

No OpenXCom, then. Sad. :'( I've not heard of it...BUT if it is turn based then I can only surmise that I would despise it's very existence. Sorry. For a second, I somehow mis interpreted "turn based" with "RTS" games, and I was gonna get very sad at the notion someone has it out for the Command …

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

.... Besides that....my only REAL confession would be that i spend WAY more time tinkering, building and troubleshooting with my retro machines that I ever have playing games. TBH that is true with my modern machine as well. I've got fairly capable retro and modern gaming rigs that will likely …

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

Not really retro...but I do despise all turn based games. I hate them, I hate them and when I'm done hating them I hate them some more. Also, Windows XP isn't retro to me and never will be. Besides that....my only REAL confession would be that i spend WAY more time tinkering, building and …

Re: Intel smashes Ryzen

Unless Intel actually has a new process, they should stop calling these releases "generational". Other than like two 10nm mobile skus (celerons??) This is just another 14nm rehash and barely worth a review.

Re: Intel smashes Ryzen

that's cause someone said how much of a difference amd did. well.. they sell 50% more cores for about 500% more price. (amazon prices without tax don't count outside usa) Dude. Really. You have to know this is false. If you insist on the "AMD is 50% more expensive" argument then at least have the …

Re: Intel smashes Ryzen

zen 6 cores is still way more expensive than regular intel 4 cores :) Core i3-10100F 4 cores- about 100 $ AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 6 cores - about 500 $ No. That isn't remotely close. Ryzen 5600 is selling NOW for $379 on Amazon. Ryzen 3600 is selling now for $199 on Amazon Ryzen 2600 if you hunt can be …

Re: Intel smashes Ryzen

Well I am glad that Intel is trying to compete at every given price point. Competition is good for all of us, a monopoly is not. I for one couldn't care less about SATA AHCI drivers. My OS is on a nVME drive, my data drives are SATA, and they all work just fine. I had a R7 1700, and now have a R7 …

Re: Intel smashes Ryzen

@mockingbird: AMD has some severe ups and downs. I was extremely happy with my Athlon XP and Athlon 64 back in the day. But their Phenom processors shit the bed so horribly, I didn't even think about AMD as a purchasing option until the goodwill towards the Ryzen 3's became too overwhelming to …

Re: Intel smashes Ryzen

Furthermore, the only way Rocket Lake will overtake Ryzen 5000 on IPC is by pure clock speed. Even with their IPC improvements they are still going to be 3-4% behind AMD clock to clock. Now thats still a impressive jump, but if they can only maintain 5.3ghz on one core for 60 seconds at a time....im …

Re: Intel smashes Ryzen

just amd sells their doubled cores at the price of xeons If you are talking about Threadripper...then no they don't. They are roughly equivalent to Intel's HEDT sku's , at least as far as price is concerned. They "smash" the hell out of Intel's HEDT platform in every other metric, speed, power …

Re: Intel smashes Ryzen

I don't trust Intel's marketing slides...and even IF i did how much power and heat will these things put out? How much will they cost? AMD can double the core count in ten seconds and be back on top in a jiffy if necessary. Intel is floundering until they get on a modern process. No one wants …
