I figure this might be useful to huki and jigebren in case they need something tested on some specific hardware.

I recommend Piriform Speccy for consistency and easy comparison.

The end.

...perhaps it can serve as a benchmark for the lower end of things :I

Haha, you're funny.

First desktop:

Intel Pentium 4 650 @ 3.4 GHz
2GB DDR2-533 dual-channel CL4
Intel GMA 900
120GB Samsung 840 EVO SSD
Win7 x86

Second desktop:

Intel Pentium 4 2 GHz Northwood
1.5 GB DDR-266 single-channel CL2.5?
Intel Extreme Graphics
120GB WD PATA drive + 60GB Seagate PATA drive
WinVista x86 on 1st drive & WinXP Home x86 on 2nd drive

Third desktop:

AMD Sempron 2600+ @ 1.6 GHz
512MB DDR-400 single-channel CL3?
Nvidia Riva TNT2 M64 overclocked back to stock speeds <_<
400GB WD4000YR SATA-I HDD
WinXP Home x86

Laptop:

Intel Pentium M 735 @ 1.7 GHz
1GB DDR-333 single-channel CL2.5?
ATI Mobility Radeon 7500, sometimes UC'd (thanks IBM...)
40GB Toshiba MK4026GAX PATA drive
WinXP Pro x86

It's safe to say I have some of the crappiest PC's still running RV, methinks.

Hahaha, let me laugh.

My main computer (the one I use to compile Re-Volt):

Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.40GHz
1.50Go DDR PC3200 (200 MHz)
256MB NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500
-> ASUS PA246 (1920x1200@60Hz)
Windows XP Professionnel 32-bit SP3

The second one (I really have to trash but I'm keeping just to test Re-Volt online):

Intel Pentium III 800MHz
256MB SDRAM
NVIDIA RIVA TNT2
Windows XP Professionnel 32-bit SP3

Yes, I once really planned to upgrade but didn't feel like buying a ready-made-supermarket computer, and I felt lazy to read information about all available hardware... so I as long as this computer has not burnt I'm afraid I'll keep using it.
If anyone is versed in current hardware market then I'm ready to take any advise though. :P

Netbook:

Windows 7 x86
Intel Atom N2600 @ 1.6ghz (dual)
Integrated GMA 3600 (wayyy slower than a TNT2)
2 gigs of RAM (stick type & specs unknown)

Not playing RV with it. Laptop still looking for repairs after a whole year.

Looking forward to the Open GL project, expecting it to fix the hardware transform & lightning problems with the GMA 3600.

Man, If I could just plug my TNT2 to the pos I'm currently typing with...

All right, all right, I rescind my previous statement :lol: I suppose I should say I have the crappiest graphics processors. I'd be happy to advise you on a new build though. I may not have the most cutting edge tech but I do keep myself very up-to-date on what's new and powerful. Give me a budget and I can find you the parts.

As much as I like to bash on the GMA 3600, the hardware itself is actually pretty good and demolishes a TNT2. It's the drivers that hold everything back, and there's a 99% chance Intel will never fix it.

On the OpenGL support, I have a suspicion the driver utilizes the CPU for graphics calls that Intel never bothered to implement for the PowerVR architecture. Heck, Intel probably copied and pasted code from the days of the GMA 3100 or older since all of those GPU's (if you can call them that) lacked hardware T&L all together.

BTW, my netbook also needs repairs after I took it apart trying to find a way to reset the BIOS password :lol: That's what I get for buying refurb.


EDIT: Stoney, do you have XMP disabled on your RAM? You have a very nice rig from the looks of things but it seems odd to me that you'd have high-end parts with RAM running at bog-standard speeds. Unless I'm mistaken, you should take a trip to your BIOS/UEFI and turn that on for a free performance boost.

lol I forgot how old that pic was. That was before I had time to play in the bios, I've enabled xmp since then.
