    How long is your CPU list in main rig?

    For me i386SX-20, i486DX2-66, Pentium P100, Pentium P233mmx, K6-2 500, Athlon 1400, Athlon64 3200+, Athlon64 4200+, Xeon X3210, i7 920, Xeon X5650

    And I've still got most of 'em too.

    Re: How long is your CPU list in main rig?

    Eighties sometime: MOS Technology 6502 (AKA BBC Master-series)
    Nineties sometime: 386-SX (can't remember what speed);
    1997: Pentium 200 MMX (oh yeah baby, MMX, my first home build PC)
    2000: AMD Athlon "Thunderbird" 1GHz (saved up and was so excited to get the first gigahertz CPU)
    2001: Intel Pentium 4 "Willamette" 1.6GHz (the AMD was terrible, had to switch)
    2003: Intel Pentium 4 "Northwood" 3GHz (With Hyperthreading, baby)
    2008: Intel Pentium Duo 1.6GHz (I think "Conroe")
    2008: Intel Core i7-920 "Nehalem" 2.6GHz
    2014: Intel Core i7-5930K "Haswell-E" 3.5GHz

    With a bit of overclocking dusted over the top every now and then. That was just my "main" PC.

    I had various Celerons, Durons and other lower-power CPUs for my "server". And other things in laptops. But I paid less attention to the bits in those.

    The jump from the P200 to the Thunderbird was massive - but looking at the time difference, it was only 3 years. I remember frame rate dropping to 7fps during a fire-fight on de_train running at 640x480 on the P200 (Although HL would run happily at 800x600, less intense I guess) - Voodoo 1 4MB. I later got it running 12MB Voodoo 2 which helped. I was very proud of getting 1:1 K/D ratio in those days, then I got my thunderbird. Wow. Everything got so easy, 10:1 was an average game - then they released ADSL! 30:1. Then I got old. 1:30 :/

    The Northwood was definitely my favourite, and it's still running fine, just decommissioned it from my old man's media server role. Running on an Abit board with a bust RAID controller, otherwise, rock solid. Nehalem was pretty awesome, but not as reliable, and the Haswell has been causing me constant problems.

    Re: How long is your CPU list in main rig?

    Might be some gaps (think I had some more Athlons than that), but from what I can remember:

    Motorola 68000 7mhz
    Motorola 68020 14mhz
    AMD Duron 800Mhz
    AMD Athlon 1300 1.3ghz
    AMD Athlon 2400 2ghz
    AMD Athlon 3000 2.1ghz
    Intel Pentium 4 2.4ghz
    Intel Core 2 Duo E6420 2.13ghz
    Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 2.33ghz
    Intel Core 2 Quad 6600 2.4ghz
    Intel Core i5 2300 2.8ghz

    Currently waiting on the Ryzen news, and what Intel do to counteract it, before I move on.

    Really hard to remember them all going back but something like:

    Pentium 166
    Something around 400Mhz, can't remember if Athlon or Pentium
    Duron 1Ghz
    Athlon XP 2500+ (Barton)
    Opteron (the one you could unlock to 3Ghz with an ASrock motherboard)
    Core2Duo E6600
    Core2Quad Q6600
