  • PCIe 5 SSDs and the heatsinks that love them. (Tom's Hardware)

    Intel stole a march on AMD in 2021 with the introduction of PCIe 5, a full year before AMD had it in their own timeline. That gave Intel users a big advantage when it came to using the new wave of PCIe 5 SSDs and graphics cards...

    Neither of which exist.

    PCIe 5 SSDs will be out before too long - some sites have already benchmarked them - but PCIe 5 graphics cards are likely still a couple of years away. All the new models announced recently by Nvidia and AMD (and Intel too) are still PCIe 4.

    I noted that my Bae case - a customised Hyte Y60 - uses a riser card and only supports PCIe 4 graphics cards. With a PCIe 5 motherboard you need to manually adjust the slot configuration in the BIOS. That's turning to be even less of a concern than I had thought.

  • Still ow. This is getting seriously annoying.

  • When is a PC not a PC? The PC-98. (Scali's OpenBlog)

    NEC's PC-9800 was an early MS-DOS system - it came out in 1982 - with much better graphics due to the requirements of Japanese text. It wasn't fully IBM-compatible, or even particularly IBM compatible, but it ruled the Japanese market until VGA became common many years later.

    And it's supported by DOSBox-X.
