Re: Why DOS died...

Sure, I know it's a 'negligible' but I know there are 8760 hours in a year, and my power costs me 56 cents a kilowatt-hour. So, even one watt running continuously will cost me $5.00 in extra electric cost per year. Multiply that by 100 "wasted", negligible watts of an 'average' household who just …

Re: Why DOS died...

Why did Solaris 10s system requirement for x86 less(120mhz) than the a SPARK system(200mhz) for Solaris 10 if x86 class systems were inferior? What are you smoking? :D It is on the back of the box under system requirements buddy. Ah yes. I would like to see the 120MHz x86 system that can meet the …

Re: Would you be interested in an x86-based alternative to the Raspberry Pi, optimized for retro gaming?

EDIT: You might also want to talk with Intel BTW, they made a "die shrink" a while back. As I read the article, it becomes clear that their goals went FAR beyond merely shrinking the Pentium to a 32nm process. yes, shrinking process nodes are done all the time, but they are at most 2 steps within …

Re: Would you be interested in an x86-based alternative to the Raspberry Pi, optimized for retro gaming?

Can you explain to us again how the research & development work that Intel did to develop the Pentium Pro into the Core 2 Penryn over a span of ~13 years demonstrates that taking old designs like K8 + R350 and remaking them on 7nm is cheap ? For one thing, the vast majority of the changes that were …

Re: Would you be interested in an x86-based alternative to the Raspberry Pi, optimized for retro gaming?

There are PCI and PCIe parallel port cards. You can also hook up two drives to the same controller. I don't have a machine anymore that has pci/e slots :) Ah, only laptops then. You could always get a Magma PCI expansion chassis if you have something with a PCMCIA or Express slot. You can also do a …

Re: Thinkpad T22/T23 S3 Savage IX & SuperSavage

T23 has breaking off inductors on the motherboard. I fixed mine when I got it for free by soldering them back on, also some inductor also partially solder fractured. Cheers, Well, at least the T23 doesn’t have the blink-of-death power controller issue of the T20-22 series (also impacts the Vaio PCG …

Re: Thinkpad T22/T23 S3 Savage IX & SuperSavage

i have a gateway solo 5300 that has that savage ix gpu and, while metal looks like standard software mode, it performs way faster so, my conclusion is that it works on that chip, but compatibility is way worse than it should. that api was made specifically for savage 3d (excellent), savage4 (good), …
