Re: Repurposing a 2004 Athlon 64 system in 2021

Damn... I think my P4 is a bit more stable with a weaker video card. Swapped out the Radeon X800 with a Radeon HD6350 and seems a bit more stable. Now need to see what it does booting into 64-bit...

Youtube on my Pentium-M and Atom (both 1.6GHz single core; Atom is HT) are just about unusable, chew up 100% of CPU... Linux/Firefox 91 ESR, 32-bit. Pains me when someone brings a youtube link when...

Re: Repurposing a 2004 Athlon 64 system in 2021

too far apart = need too much wire to connect everything together... or have to go wireless but then that would increase system price a lot...

Interesting, usually ebay's recommendations are useless for me... I guess that's better for my already too thin pocketbook?

Re: Repurposing a 2004 Athlon 64 system in 2021

What kinds of network throughputs were you getting with the N270?

Found that my P4-3400 and probably that A64-3500+ are considerably faster than the N270, though if the N270 remains to be "fast...

Re: Repurposing a 2004 Athlon 64 system in 2021

btw, software support for the Advantech UNO-3072LA? Because it's slow or because it actually doesn't run modern OS?

I'm still using an Asus eeePC 901A (netbook, likewise slow Atom N270)... heh...

Re: Repurposing a 2004 Athlon 64 system in 2021

Magic! Please do tell how you do this!



Uh no, sorry. Doesn't work that way sadly.

Re: Repurposing a 2004 Athlon 64 system in 2021

Speaking of routers, I wonder how fast of a PC is needed to route 1Gbps from one ethernet port to another, using no hardware assist? Then with "decent" ethernet cards?

Re: Repurposing a 2004 Athlon 64 system in 2021

Re: Repurposing a 2004 Athlon 64 system in 2021

Just about every SATA cable I have are straight including power cables. It's rare that I see 90 bend cables, I think I've ever seen one or two ever. Well if you can get a whole set of bent cables...

Re: Repurposing a 2004 Athlon 64 system in 2021

Re: Repurposing a 2004 Athlon 64 system in 2021

LOL I'm currently working with one of the exact same case, was wondering...
