How far can you OC the 186? Try running Windows 95 on it! Run SuperPI!
I have had a...
celeron D 3.33ghz
AMD Athlon X2 4000+
Sinclair ZX81 1KB RAM, lol....Upgraded to a wobbly 16kb RAM pack which reset the comp if jogged!
Oric Atmos 48kb
Sinclair ZX Spectrum 48kb
AMD 2600+ Thouroughbred
AMD 3700+ San Diego
Intel E6750 Conroe
even if I stil had a mobo to support it (which I could prob find on ebay), I don't feel like having to wait 1.5 weeks for it to complete a 1M run of SuperPI
that rig was running MS-DOS 2.0 - came on 5.25" FDs
last version of MS-DOS I used was 6.22; I've got like 5 different versions of MS-DOS around here somewhere, 2.0 and 3.1 were on 5.25" . . . I remember 4.01, 5.0 and 6.22 on 3.5"
I still have a MS-DOS 5.0 user manual on my desk, it has all the DOS commands, sytanx, and how to work with the OS.
Back then, I could navigate DOS so fast I could sometimes get the system to hang cause I was inputting command lines quicker than the OS could execute them
I was pissed, though, when MS dropped the DOS console from WIN (what was that, WIN ME or WIN 2000?). WIN 3.1, WIN 95 and WIN 98, I'd get frustrated with WIN and drop to a DOS console for moving files, searching, making new folders, etc.
MOS 6502 1 MHz (Commodore VIC-20)
Intel 8088 4.77 MHz (IBM PC 5150)
Intel 386SX 33 MHz and a math co-processor
AMD K6-2 333 MHz (HP box)
Intel Celeron 1.6 GHz (HP box)
AMD Athlon64 3000+
AMD Sempron64 3100+
AMD Sempron64 2800+
AMD Opteron 165 -- current
AMD Turion64 MT-37 -- current
AMD Athlon64 3400+ (754) -- current
Impressive speed at that voltage. My 5200+ is 1.35v and won't do 2.8 at that voltage (stock is 2.6)
Same here. I used to keep my old WIN95 machine around so I could play my old DOS only games (till it died) Now I probably dont remember half the commands I used to in DOS.
Starting back in the Before Time when dinosaurs roamed the Earth...
TMS9900 @ 3.3MHz
6510 @ 1MHz
68000 @ 7.14 MHz
68EC020 @ 14.28 MHz
Pentium 133 @ 166 (this was my first overclock)
Pentium II 300 MHz
Pentium II 450 MHz
Pentium III 733 MHz
Pentium 4 2.0 GHz
Pentium 4 3.2 GHz (Northwood)
P4 550 (3.4 GHz Prescott)
You need a new cpu, and you need to overclock what you got! P4 + HD3850 = mad bottleneck.
AMD K6 II some thing IDK
AMD Duron 800 MHz
AMD Duron 1.2 GHz
AMD Athlon 1.33 GHz
AMD Athlon XP 2600+ or something Ran @ 1800MHz AFAIR
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ @ 2500MHz (First OCed )
Next will be a Q6600 or the Xeon or a YF,anything Intel and Quadcore.
Yes I know. The only reason it's this way is that I sort of "came in" to this 3.4 GHz system and it had a junky X300 in it to start. My previous system was AGP based so I couldn't just move its video card over. Since I'm the sort to upgrade part by part anyway I figure that once I get a proper motherboard and CPU I can just migrate the 3850. And in the meantime, my graphics performance is kickass.
AMD 333mhz K6-2 (dead)
Intel Pentium II 233mhz (still works)
Intel Pentium III 450mhz (still works/backup for the PII 933)
Intel Pentium III 933mhz (currently in a Gateway @ 700mhz/100fsb)
AMD Duron 900mhz (dead)
Intel Celeron 700mhz (died a tragic death of 1100Mhz with 2.05 vcore in the Gateway)
AMD Sempron 2400+ (died a bent pin death)
Intel Celeron D 347
Procs that were in laptops
AMD Athlon 900mhz
AMD Athlon 1.4Ghz
AMD Turion Tk somethin or other ....
in the same boat with ya. All I really need is a new CPU - the two 1950's I'm stouting are still capable contenders, just not DX10 capable. I'm still eyeballing a Q8650, or maybe a Q9650 when I've got the money . . . but I've also been eyeballing investing that money into AMD stock instead . . .
TBH - I wish I still had the rest of the hardware to run those old procs. I could rack up a ton of point for TPU in hwbot
p4 2.66ghz 478 (dont remember which one)
PD 3.4ghz 775 (945)
c2d 1.8ghz 775. (e4300)
intel celeron skt 423 @ 600mhz (me thinks)
intel p4 prescott 478 at 3ghz
amd athlon 3000+ am2 @ 2.9ghz
intel c2d e2160 @ 3.2ghz
intel c2d e2180 @ 3.4ghz
amd turion x2 tl-60 @2ghz
Well....two years ago...
AMD K6 500MHz....Oc'ed to 525MHz(First oc, and max of board)
Intel P3 866MHz....Oc'ed to 930MHz(tried for 1GHz...dont remeber what happened)
AMD Athlon64 3000+....Oc'ed to 2.47GHz(Shitty 6100 Geforce mobo..)
AMD Athon64 X2 3600+...Oc'ed to 2.93GHz(Got 3GHz the day before my C2D came)
Intel Core2Duo E6550.....Oc'ed to 3.44GHz
As i see from my list, i like teh overclockingz
P1 166MHz@200MHz (1st OC)
AMD Duron 600MHz @ idk
Athlon 2000+ @ idk
And now waiting for money to buy a new rig.
so we're counting handhelds now? triple my list, lol!
Core 2 Duo E6850 Conroe
So then I could count my Celeron 633Mhz BGA in my xbox? And the PISC in my PS1?
I had I don't even know how many 386 and 486s that my Dad nabbed from his work whenever they upgraded computers. I just remember they had Windows 3.1
From then on:
Athlon 1GHz (an HP)
Pentium 4 2.8GHz (first custom build)
Athlon 64 3200+ (laptop)
Pentium M 1.(?) GHz (laptop)
Athlon 64 3200+ (desktop this time, another build)
Core Duo 1.83GHz (current laptop)
Athlon 64 X2 4000+ (latest build, but recently sold the whole rig...)
wow i dont remember dat far back ummmmm
AMD +4400 (current PC)
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7500 2.20 GHz, 4 MB L2 Cache, 800MHz FSB (current laptop)
I'm not even gonna try and remember all the speeds...LOL
Intel 8080(2 diff)
MOS Technology 6502
Zilog Z80(2 diff)
Zilog Z-80A (2 diff)
Pentium III(2 diff)
Pentium 4(2 diff)
AM2 New Orleans
i think you mean 733mhz Celeron.
Separate names with a comma.
