    Yeah, but low-density PC100 256MB sticks fit the same amount onto just a single PCB. Maybe these were made when chip density was not high enough to go the single PCB route?

    hopefully someone can help me remember a graphics card from my childhood days. it was an ATI card about ten years ago, when 256bit was a massive rage and dual core was expensive! the card was red with clear plastic casing the fan and a sticker. but on top was a copper like plate shaped on the pcb! not sure if it was pcie or what bit it was?! any ideas?

    I still have mine.


    Could also be a card with the two-slot x1800/x1900 cooler, like this x1800xt:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    10 Years ago would have put you some where in the Radeon 9xxx range. The only ones that where 256 bit where the 9700 and 9800 series. Cards running 256 bit after them would have been the x800 series and that came in late 04' to early 05' with pci-e versions coming out late 04' to late middle 05'. The X1xxx 256 bit series came out between late 05' to early 07'.

    There used to be some really colorful stuff back in the day. From gpus to mobos' and even wild cpu coolers. Hell like was said before, some of the stuff I have looks like someone threw up a pack of skittles on it.

    We're having issues at work, so I'm going to take some time off and dig around for something to post here.

    Best I can come up with is a Dual P3 HP NetServer LPr that's currently crunching for TPU's WCG competition (and providing some device monitoring for work too). Semi-vintage in action!

    ~220 PPD makes this not as horribly inefficient as I would have thought. Uses about 130 watts at the wall.

    Edit: BONUS! An instructive guide I made for a friend on dual-booting.

    My Dell Dimension E520 with a stock Intel Xeon X3210 2.13GHz quad takes about 130w at the wall and gets ~2000 PPD. Even that is old compared to say an overclocked i7-3770K that gets 7-8K PPD in the same power footprint. It's amazing how far processors have come along over the last 12 years. With the PPD numbers you gave for your server, you'd probably need nearly 32 of them (or roughly 4 Kilowatts) lol. :laugh:
     
    xvi and Peter1986C say thanks.
    Crunching for Team TPU More than 25k PPD

    Got this at a recycling center:

    [​IMG]

    Paid $5 for it :rockout: It's missing the I/O panel though.

    I think I'm going to put together a "scraps" rig ;) I've got a 3.4 Prescott, an HD2600XT and a spare set of DDR500 RAM.
