I did not notice that. good find.
So come back to me I'm curious to know what is the real cpu under that heatspreader. Do you have stuff to test it? Maybe it was experimental cpu. Mysterious! sl8by or sl7j8
soon i'll be able to post my laptop in this thread lol. old IBM T43
It's a pentium D prototype with two Pentium 4 cores. They had different speeds because of TDP limits. It was the only way intel managed to get a dual core to work stable, at that time.
Still, that thing was getting rated with a TDP of 200W. The sSPEC SL8BY doesn't exist, so to say, because it was used just for this prototype, for that 2nd core alone.
It's very likely to be an OEM processor, that is clocked at 3.2, instead of 3.4. Although rare, there were some cases where OEMs (like DELL) installed processors like this (labeled twice) in their mass produced computers. Reason might come from those computers lacking motherboards with good power delivery, cooling and/or a good power supply, so these "special" processors were initially rated at a higher speed, but instead ran at their "secondary" rated speed.
That's exactly it. SL8BY is a Dell-only sSpec.
Check the bottom of that posting and the comment.
Uh...I'm sorry to dash your excitement, but not really.
I'm not the type of guy to get excited over computer parts. But thx anyway.
Does this count? Got it off Freecycle a couple days ago with the manual and a spare needle. The needle that was on it was bent, replaced that with the spare I got with it. Not really pleased with the sound of it I pulled it off and put on a Shure M92e I had. Sounds pretty good for a basic turntable.
Went to class today, and my professor brings in a huge box of 1990s software (all boxed) and empty floppy disk holders. Stuff like The Print Shop, Windows NT 3.51, etc. was all in there, but I scored something even better (and still factory sealed!), and I doubt anyone else in my class knew what it was:
I guess that's what they used for the older Nokia cellphones. Understructible!!!!
Cellphones never used X86 Junkbear.
i think the meant he was joking
also ... Intel Atom Penwell, Clover Trail+ and Cloverview are X86
Supported Instruction Set(s): IA-32 (x86), MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3
they all carry a intel GMA gpu and a PowerVR SGX 54X (the SGX is for compatibility and also because GMA perf are horrible) so they are useable by Win8 and Android.
oh wait you mean cellphones but not smartphones.... but smartphones are cellphones, so cellphones use x86 since 2011 roughly
Thank you GreiverBlade to confirm it. Some people don't understand sarcasm.
Sarcasm on the internet is like a fat girl, hard to cum across
thats why we use emotes ... ok Junkbear should have used instead of or combo
)for the sarcasm on internet obviously.... not the fat girl ...
bump this up just cause LOL
Up-Up-Down-Down-Left-Right-Left-Right-B-A-Start To give more life to this thread...IYKWIM
Ouote myself There is nothing rare about this CPU. Its a 3.4. At least I hope not I sold it for $15
No damage done. That's the usual value for those procs.
stinger608 just messaged me and told me about this thread. Wow, I'm loving this stuff! I got into computers when my dad bought his first 486, which I still have around and is currently hooked up. Then I ran a super socket 7 and a socket 370 system for years, I think I ran Win98 till 2006! I didn't even have an XP system till I built my first gaming rig, which then a year later Vista came out. Then I went back and "maxed out" the socket 7 and 370, and both of them are still running. Mainly I just always wanted these rigs to fly back when I first used them, and now they do.
When I get a chance I'll get some pictures and go a lot deeper into specs and stuff. I can tell you guys this though: Those modern PCI nvidia cards, like ZOTAC ZT-60604-10L GeForce GT 610 512MB 64-bit DDR... will work on boards as old as socket 7 (you just need a pci 2.3 slot I believe and an OS for the drivers). But ideally you'll want to go no older than socket 370, cause you'll want the SSE instructions on the CPU (pentium III is the oldest to have this). So for a system with a AMD k6 (no SSE), you won't be able to run anything 3d- the drivers bluescreen. Modern ATI/AMD cards, in my experience, won't go on anything older than a socket 370.
And for OS, WinXP will run on socket 7 if you have at least 512 ram. Vista and Win7 will run on socket 370/Pentium III rigs, only you probably won't like it. Win8 WANTS SSE2, so I wouldn't bother, however I did get it running on a socket 370 but it crashed every so often. So I use Fedora 19 i686 instead, and it works pretty well.
For older systems, I use the fanmade "Unofficial Windows 98 SE Service Pack"
^That. I have gotten Damn Small Linux to boot and run on a 486 with 16mb ram (I later maxed it out to 36mb). These older rigs though have shoddy old cd-rom drives that have trouble running live cds, so I'd replace them first to make installation quicker and less error prone.
There's also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiny_Core_Linux which seems to be more frequently worked on.
I love DSL. I had it running on a 486DX with 16MB RAM for a while.
The DSL is it like Xubuntu on the way it looks and icons and functions work? If yes I could possibly put into an older Dell for a kid.
How old of a system are we talking about though? Cause I'd say just go for Fedora i686 or something instead.
