Moore's Law is not proven wrong. Moore's Law is not about speed.
oh well indeed its about computing power xD still Moor's law say a computer parts is obsolet every 6month naahhh dont take all i write as serious i like joking about this and that and i know i am a bit too sarcastic
Actually Moore's law states that every 24 months, the number of transistors of computers doubles, not computing power.
This was misinterpreted by an Intel big-wig years back (House was his last name, that's all I remember. I'm sure if I could be arsed to Google it, I could find his full name) as every 18 months and it was misconstrued as processing power.
Generally speaking, an increase in transistor count is also an improvement in performance, but this is not always the case, hence my posting this and clearing the confusion.
i seeeeee the light its sooo bright! thanks Random im on a hunt for oldies if i can find some goodies at low price or in some dark and shady place PICS will come back!!
aka how efficient that transistor is at making logic simple and sensible lol
well, might not be nostalgic but i wanted to share that pics i found on facebook in a random WTF computer post... at last the owner has the reason why his fan stoped working ... and judging by the lizard look ... it has been a long time before he'd notice it ...
Wow, guess that's why I haven't seen a Geico commercial in a while.
Ouch. I'd hate to be that lizard.
Might wanna post that over in The Filthy, Rotten, Nasty, Helpdesk-Nightmare picture clubhouse as well.
REJOICE NOSTALGIC FAN!!!
i finaly managed to find a
YEP a slot A Athlon (K-7700MT) a 2nd Slot A Athlon (unkown no shroud) and a ...
Intel Celeron CPU 2GHz Sockel 478 but this one i dont care xD
more detail when i will get my hands on those!
Awesome Greiver!! Them Athlons were some overclocking monsters!
Back in the day of, like, twice the original clock speed, right?
Does this count XD
Microsoft Sidewinder Precision Pro
YEP! now you make me wonder where i did put my Logitech Wingman
Yea some of them would overclock close to double. I had a 700 and I think I had it at 1200 or something like that.
those slot A athlons were mental overclockers, never seen chips clock as well as them majority could hit a 75-80% overclock
weeheee i recieved 2 on 4 of my waited delivery (sad the cpu werent in one of those) but i recieved a fine piece of Thermalright engineering: The Ancestor of the Silver arrow (or was it the Cogage who is the ancestor ... duh i cant remember)
THERMALRIGHT Inferno Fire eXtinguisher(IFX)-14 and IFX-10 backside HS ... 840gr of pure pleasure without the fan ofc, im waiting on 2 TY-147 or 3 for it adding either 320gr or 480gr more to it xD
the backside IFX-10, so thick alu blades ...
and the IFX-14 pure beauty, drop that on your feets and you're good for a reconstructive surgery...
only 4 heatpipes versus 6 on the Macho but WOW HEATPIPES! and i dont have thin pinky...
also the bundle include a 4g syringe of Chill Factor
as you can see i have more than needed since i usualy use Arctic MX-4 but that pics is fun
the 2g satchel on the bottom is the Chill Factor II bundled with the Macho
and this HS was sold to a ridiculous price of 20$ almost good as new with all accessory inclued... i paid 45$ for the Macho and 2g of CFII huhu naahhh they include a free 9.5" Ph2 screwdriver with the macho
now it will go in a not so much nostalgic build but on a 2009 PhenomII X2 511 (Overkill isnt it?) it make me wonder ... i have a Thermalright HR-02 Macho Rev. A in my main build i wonder wich one would performe the best PhenomII X4 955 should be no challenge for the IFX-14 as it is not for the HR-02, or i can go passive and rely only on the 140mm Fractal Silent R2 with the X2 511 huuhuu
Spoiler: and then wonder happens!
i think i can go semi passive with the 140mm back and 230mm top
PSU in place and cable routing in a case that recieved bad review about its cable management
just in case you wonder ... yes i plugged the 4+4 12v after puting all inside ... im masochist
RED TAPE! to ease the back panel closing xD and yes the black cable crossing on top is the cable of the 140mm
the IFX-10 will have 2 coolink SWIF120 in front and since i dont need the HDD rack it will be full airflow
a bit gettho but if it works then its a good one! its a Kingston ram cooler put in place of the 2 60mm slot in the Tt E S
the CM TX3 Evo used previously ... almost small as the IFX-10
oh well the un shroud "athlon" was a PII or PIII have to seek model
ok more info its a PIII 500mhz
Spoiler: GTX460 Hawk in place
btw removing the cooler on the Athlon also removed a bit of my right index (rather a huge bit ... damn)
good news the Athlon is a 2nd serie Pluto core (i hunt 1st serie but 2nd are fine tho, the older the more value they have for me )
My old Socket 939 Athlon FX CPU
Geforce 6800. This thing is stupidly loud. Should probably replace the paste and blow the dust out of it.
That's not an FX, it's a 64 3500+ Venice core. Still nice.
Damn it Google. LOL atleast now I know
Guess I need to put some updated pics of some of my old stuffs.
K6-2 500 MHZ
Slot A Athlon 600 Mhz
Socket A Duron's
Socket A Athlon's Thunderbirds
Socket A Athlon Xp 2100+ Pally and a 2500+ Barton
Socket A Athon Xp Bartons, 2500+ and a 3200+
939 Athlon 64 3200+ and a x2 4200+
939 Athlon 64 x2 4400+
Innards to my Win xp gaming rig which I am in the process of redoing.
Asus A8n Sli Premium and 3 gb of pc3200
2x Evga 8800 GTX's for sli action
Here is a Shuttle AN35N Ultra with a xp 3200+ in it.
And Lastly, my Win 98 rig,
Hmm Mad Shot, some of that hardware looks familiar
Nice collection bro!
LOL Thats cause it came from you buddy to complete my dream win xp rig. Once I get done with the case it will be back up and running.
Oh add me to the list LOL
you was added a long time ago man!!
I know man just playing with ya.
Post up more great oldness guys, I am in need of a certain old ass mobo. First one to post one will win a free pm from me trying to convince you to sell it to me.
