  • even if you mentionned main sockets, i'd say that the lga1155 was a socket capable of accepting cpu that are compatible with DDR3 and DDR4. so, to say, lga1155 was a transitional between DDR3 and DDR4. motherboards with lga1155 are DDR3 or DDR4. We can also see SATA going from version 1 to 3 in these mobos, the same is occuring about other peripherals, too. 100Mbits eth cards going up to the gigabyte bareer, too.

  • I love that not a whole lot changed in the last couple years. I am still using my 2012 i5-3570k clocked at 4.2 GHz and there is basically nothing I cannot do, especially focusing on games. Sure, the more demanding applications (because of bad programming, e.g. ARK:SE) do not run perfectly but they run, reliably, and because of my GTX970 also at pretty good graphics and performance.

  • No! The intel 8086 (i8086) can't access 1MB of RAM, it cant only 512KB, the processor that can do it is it successor, the intel 8088 (8088), with a lower instruction queue, more MHz and a multiplexed data and adress bus.

  • Indeed. The Thunderbird was the first CPU running at stock speed of 1Ghz. Intel's Pentium 3 came much later with copper-mine core. Even the pentium 4 came with versions beneath the 1 Ghz. I also agree with the fact, that proper implementation of AMD's instruction sets and architecture types could be exploited much better, then software companies do. Where there is money at stake, there is often corruption to be found. Apple and Microsoft have interests in Intel. Intel has interests in AMD. Microsoft uses some custom chips of AMD but on the foreground the seem to support Intel better, then AMD. No one likes to admit the other camp, to have the better philosophy. Where advertisements program people, to buy stuff. So the one with the greater wallet, has more ways… to persuade customers. And since ARM permits the production of CPU's based on their licenses and adding own circuitry to that design… it may result in foul play. ARM uses RISC based technology making it run more efficient and energy saving. Microsoft has now the means of producing their own hardware and equipment, while being able to make their equipment benefit from their own software. Or even to build in delay loops in the software and drivers for the other hardware camps. It would be so incredibly nice when developers would make more usage of the Linux OS-es. And even more, when groups of hard- and software developers get together, while combining great ideas, that are based on sound philosophies. What I personally detest… is crappy software. That is even worse then crappy hardware.

  • The 486 introduced a built in FPU (big deal) and L2 cache integration with the P6 microarchitecure with the Pentium PRO and not the Celeron A or Pentium II. In fact even those werent truly integrated… that wasnt until Coppermine Pentium III systems w/going back to Socket 7. The L2 Cache before was either a coast card in a pentium build or back side bus which was why the CPU was on a card to begin with. The Pentium MMX introduced MMX and was late and i mean late in the P5's life with P6 being out already but ok… ill let that one slide. The Pentium had far superior FPU performance to the P4 architecture (486). The 286 sucked and required a hardware reset to take advantage of 16-bit protected mode so touche about the 8086, but i still say you jumped over why the 486 was a massive landmark and credited the P5 for the wrong thing. Quake… was not because of MMX. It ran well because of a good FPU. The Pentium II outright while it didn't introduce the MMX microarchitecture it did fix the 16-bit performance issues and give MMX to the P6 as the Pentium PRO didnt have it. The Pentium PRO was still a massive jump even remaining competitive for its large L2 cache even into the PII life.

  • 1:50 Hmm.. a card with "Philippines" printed on it.. Interesting.. O_O And yeah, I remember my family's old Pentium 4 PC and the good old days of Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge. 🙂

  • Dating myself here, but I remember running an A64 959 socket chip with an ATI X800-GTO unlocked to the full 16 pipe x850xt-pe gpu, this was back when the IPC king was the AMD Athlon. I was using danger den waterblocks on the cpu and gpu, an aquarium 120V water pump and uv reactive tubing. Water cooling was considered an insane thing to do reserved for the most hardcore overclockers. Someone on (maybe earlier) discovered that there was a way to run a pentium M (not a pentium 4M) in a desktop and it was a monster with air cooling and on wall power. There was a couple months where people bumped the FSB on these mobile chips to destroy the amd FX-55 and pentium 4 extreme.

  • I know this is tech*Quickie* but this video just vomitted a bunch of info all at once. Hard to take away anything from this…

  • Interesting that's why I always saw 'Front Side Bus' speed being advertised in the mid 2000s but promptly disappeared after the Core i series appeared!
