Breaking another 10^x
Hey, anyone remember when the first 486-100s came out, thinking ****! THREE DIGITS OF MHZ!!! and now drawing parallel thoughts with AMD's 1.1 Ghz? Heh heh... I know I sure am.
I remember it oh too well, I actually got the dx4-100 when it first came out, great stuff! I was all siked, thinking I actually had 3 digits. Then the pentium 100 came along and absolutely destroyed the dx4. Yes though, I definately DROOL when I see those 1ghz athlons roaring! Im sure in 5 years ill be laughing at myself as well, when they have 10ghz chips
Mod w/ an attitude
Yea well I can beat that one Alpha: My first computer was a 1 MHz Apple + with 16 KBytes RAM.
****!! Mine was only an XT! (4.77mhz!)
How fast did ZX Spectrum 48k's run at? I had 2, so maybe it could be classed as a "Dual Processor".
Would it be worth using my little black box on RC5 then?
I still remember the day my father bought a 486 DX4-100 & mobo with PCI which was twice as small as we had ever seen before.
How about a good old c64 anyone remember q-link??
I had an C64 with 64kb ram and 0.9MHZ ;-)
who had less?? *lol*
Yes,Commodore64!I remember the day I bought a Powercartridge,faster loading no more typing codes,just use the F-buttons.It was a great feeling,it was so fast!I still have that cartridge,I tried to sell it years ago.I guess nobody was interested.
Don't you like thinking back to the good old days, when you could dropp thousands of dollars on a decent computer to only see it outdated 6 months later (wait a second, that's todays market too!! ) I remember when my first true PC, a XT 8086-1 10mhz with an expensive math coprocessor, CGA graphics, and a 14" monitor was considered luxury items.
As for less computing power, I still have one of the first solar powered calculators laying around somewhere. Try 100x100 and it takes about 30 seconds to compute it, now that's cutting edge technology!
