https://www.cpushack.com/2012/09/06/intel-vs-the-world-the-338-patent/ Says UMC "started making" in 1993 and started marketing in 1994. Interestingly, nobody else had CPUs on 0.6micron 600nm process until the DX4 and P75. Partially then it had to be pure terror on Intel's part that UMC were getting …

Re: Crazy overkill build ideas post here: Oldest motherboard that supports server ECC registered SDRAM?

Does it have to be x86? The first x86 chipset with registered (ECC) SDRAM support was the i440BX from april 1998. However the Digital (DEC) 21174 Pyxis chipset from early 1997 already supported 128b (dual-channel) registered SDRAM for the Alpha 21164. Not sure that would be able to use 512MB DIMMs …

Fastest K6-III+ 550 MHz is equivalent of Pentium II 300-350 MHz in most of games. Performance of K6-2+ 450 MHz @75 MHz FSB with good motherboard should be maybe around Pentium II 233 :) Only if by "most games" you mean (Gl)Quake: https://i.imgur.com/S4fBxkF.jpeg Most games that run on these PCs …

Re: K6-2+ Questions

A) depends on workload, K6-2+ is a very different beast to Intel's CPUs of the time. K6-2+ had 3DNow, which was very, very fast in the very few things that supported it. It had a typically weak FPU (at least when compared to the P6 monster), and again compared to P6 was slightly stronger in 16b code …
