Re: Sound Card with EAX 5

There's no reason to get the (still expensive) X-Fi cards, unless you need the extra bells and whistles for premium audio or recording setups.

Re: AMD 3DNow! Documentation

The only official thing left is the manual for SimNow, an ancient piece of development software that used it, with the Athlon/Opteron 64-bit CPUs. https://developer.amd.com/wordpress/media/2012/10/SimNowUsersManual4.6.1.pdf And there are some archived materials here..... https://kib.kiev.ua/x86docs/ …

Re: When PC became soulless for you?

After XP, it was all down-hill. The XP years were my favorite, because we had so many new and interesting avenues to explore with new hardware and software choices and you could go whichever way felt best to you, not to mention we also saw the rise of Linux and other alternative OS choices. The …
