in Marvin \ Video
"Budget Builds - Official" on Youtube has reviewed most of the dual-GPU Radeon cards & included a lot of performance examples. He's also covered modding drivers for these cards to get better performance in modern games . Worth checking out if you want a quick look at how they do. I never tried …

Re: Vogons Video Announcement Thread

I realize I'm in the wrong time zone for just about everybody to announce last-minute, late-night streaming, but I'm bored & I'm online right now. Tune in if you wanna! https://www.twitch.tv/oldskooljay/ Playing Distance with an overcomplicated control scheme (and controller cams 😉 )

Re: Anybody Folding@Home?

How much grunt to I need to throw at this to do anything useful? Would something like a C2D / Athlon 64 x2 with a GeForce 605 or a Radeon HD4670 1GB be able to get anything done? That's about all I have around here for "spare" hardware. I'm pretty close to the new distribution server LTT are setting …

Re: List of Free Games

So, Half Life: Alyx is out, but my free copies of HL2 (+ Ep.1, 2, Lost Coast) are still in my Steam account. No indication whatsoever that these are time limited or slated to be removed.

in Milliways
Yep, I've been in loads of labs that still had dinosaur PCs running specialized equipment via some convoluted multi-ISA card setup well into the 2010s. Data logged to tape or printed & a realtime display on an amber CRT with 30 years of screen burn... Weren't NASA still buying up 8086es for the …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Finished up Black Mesa. Xen is still mostly bad, however the first hour or so when you're exploring the abandoned research sites is still quite fun. 20200310183824_1.jpg 20200312094051_1.jpg ^^ That looks pretty nice! I'm going to have to check it out one of these days. Love the retro workstation; …

Re: Low volume out of Cobra AW744L II card

in Marvin \ Sound
I have figured out what the problem is with the AW744-L2 card and the HP T5720 thin client. It is PCI bus noise. Fully populating the capacitor places on the PCI riser card completely fixes the issue. I am guessing this will also fix issues with "compatibility" with other cards as well. It should …
