Re: Market value for popular or rare classic computer hardware

in Milliways
The definition of "hoarding objects" is very subjective and personal. One person can have 10 computers and spend much time playing with all. While the next person might have 5 computers and only ever use 2 of them. Which one then is the hoarder? Sheer quantity does not define it. A hoarder is when …

Re: K6-2P Mobile CPUs

Having the same part numer is probably because it works as a drop in replacement for desktop CPUs? I mean, if I use this in a desktop Socket 7 board it should work fine, right? I don't know. It's possible, but I just don't know. I had Mobile chips (normal k6-2 )with voltages as low as 1.6 volts …

Re: Lowest spec Windows XP pc.

There was "slower" though it was 2.5 mhz faster.... 63Mhz Pentium Overdrive for a 486 board, then you could also disconnect the fan to kick it down to 37.5Mhz. You mean 25MHz? Iirc disconnecting the fan of the s3 POD set it's CPU multiplier from 3.5 (in case it's the 83MHz POD) or from 2.5x (in …

Re: What's the dumbest retro mistake you've made?

in Milliways
I've made plenty of mistakes, but if I had to name a single one it probably is throwing out a bunch of old 486 boards. One was even a 486/386 combo board. This was when I was new to the hobby, back in 2005 or so? I also kinda regret 'testing' with my only SiS530 board a stash of old harddrives and …

Re: vogonswiki.com? Not much action?

in Milliways

Re: Riva TNT2 vs. Voodoo

A Pentium II at 300 Mhz is not powerful enough to get the best out of either a Voodoo 3 or a fast TNT2 as far as I have seen. Not worth to 'upgrade' imo. In my opinion it isn't always about getting best out of the card. It is more about if it is useful for what you want to use the pc for. I am sure …

Re: Riva TNT2 vs. Voodoo

Hi guys, I hope you are all well. Pls, I have a Pentium II at 300 Mhz and a "Riva TNT2" graphics card. But I never had a "Voodoo".
