Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


The Thrilling Conclusion

Posted on Wednesday, January 31 @ 20:29:46 PST by Duke_Ferris
This chapter in the saga of the uber rig comes to an end.... and a bit of a cliffhanger. If you missed earlier episodes, they can be found here and here.

When the good folks at Nvidia presented me with two of the most powerful video cards in the world to play with, I had two options. Either build two incredibly fast and awesome cutting edge gaming rigs, or build something unbelievably stupid powerful. The choice was clear.

Vista has been installed without a hitch, and it runs very, very fast. I haven't started playing with the overclocking yet either.

Unfortunately, the full potential remains to be seen. I can only use one of the 8800 GTX cards because drivers with SLI support for the 8800 don't come out until later today, and even those will still  be in beta and will only support SLI for DirectX 9.

On the other hand, that's not such a big deal, because until Supreme Commander comes out, I don't have any games that use DirectX 10 anyway. What I do have is a tech demo from Nvidia that renders a sort of endlessly growing, spinning rock with a waterfall. Admittedly, it is a very pretty rock and a most excellent waterfall.

What I really want to do and see with this box that contains a tiny god will just have to wait for a bit. I'm not good at waiting, so perhaps it's fortunate that I leave for vacation tomorrow. I leave behind me these awesome technologies and will embrace the warmer climes of Belize for a few weeks. I hear the waves that roll into those golden shores are rendered in real time.

When I return, I'll see what incredible advancements have been made in my absence.

Oh, and in case you were wondering if our new computer beams a Game Revolution logo in front of it like a searing headlight of truth... fear not, it does.
