Re: All these interposers and hardware hacking of old chips. What about using new chips in old motherboards?

It would be pretty cool to have an FPGA drop in CPU for socket 7 or slot 1 that could be configured on the fly for different speed profiles. For CPUs beyond slow 486sx FPGA is a no no, at least in "budget" models who power things like the MiSTER. An extra problem with Budget models, is that them …

I am not sure how practical that would be given the expense of an FPGA and the limitations of HDL (I think the FPGAs you see in projects like the mister have a …

Re: Best WinXP Video Card

It maybe possible to use nvidia inspector to force additional driver settings or down sampling. My GTS 250 has super sampling options in the driver but my GTX 960 doesn't. I am not sure which driver version removed the option from the control panel.

Re: Intel smashes Ryzen

The AMD CPU was NOT much less expensive abut about 75% of the Intel equivalent. And so this trend has continued. AMD has always been the Budget CPU when compared to Intel equivalent. How can you call them the Budget CPU when Zen 3 is beating Intel whatever-the-hell-Lake across the board , including …

Re: Ruined memory of an old game by playing it!

I actually like old, bad games :P. So even when I revisit something from my childhood that is terrible, that is part of the fun. There is one I can remember though. My son is going through a Star Wars faze so I booted up the Force Unleashed. I had played it twice before and remember rather liking it …
