3 memory slots, that's triple channel right? :lol:

 

I wonder why they didn't think of that back in the day?

Actually, it's probably dual-channel, with two sticks being able to be accessed at any time.


I can crash a computer in 30 seconds by running a .bat file with the contents %0|%0.

I can crash a computer in 1 second by yeeting it.

I also now have about 7 GB of viruses on an autorun flash drive.

No. It's just single channel.

No photos, but one of the computers still in use here is running on a Wolfdale Core 2 Duo with 6GB DDR2.  A while back, I put in an SSD and installed Windows 10 to give it some extra life, and oddly enough, it still works more than fast enough to do what it needs!  The Core 2 series really was very well made.

Shop PC I built is a Wolfdale Pentium E6300 at 3.5ghz with 4GB, SSD,  and a HD 6570. Does everything faster than the new $150 laptop he bought that crashed. 2 cores, 2 threads, it still goes a long way! I've got a couple 1st Gen i3 that I need an mATX board for and I'll swap out the hardware and run Windows 10 next year. Probably the i3 550 and see if I can scrounge up 8GB of DDR3, finding a cheap 1155 board is a pain now for some reason. It's like Intel kept changing sockets every year for a while or something. /s

 

2nd gen is cheap as heck now too so might step up to that. I dunno...

Wind it back just a few years to SDRAM. DDR2 wouldn't be introduced until roughly 6 years after the processor in that guy's pic.

BNIB Unused PhysX card.

SNIP

Man I remember these things, it just never took off did it. I recall watching a few demos using the PhysX cards but they never caught on with people, I think it was a matter of too little too late, game developers and graphics card makers were already surpassing the technology that the PhysX cards offered.

 

It was a cool ride though.

Philips is faster than LG when I launch a software.

I don't even know how many hours I spent on that game!  It was 15 years before I found out about the secret Jazz Jackrabbit cameo they worked into there.

Got a Gainward 8800 GTX delivered today.  No display output apparently but for less than 8 quid posted, if nothing else, it'll look good sat on one of my shelves somewhere 😂😂
