    I`ve had a number of these, but mostly when they were just being obsoleted. If you`ve had most of these when they were new, you`ve had a lot of money over the years and maybe not as much common sense. RDRAM, RAMBUS or RAMBUST as it became known, I`m looking at you. Someone had way too much influnce at Intel and they were forced to go with RDRAM, because they invested and planned heavily with it, while the real world performance suffered greatly. AMD wouldn`t have had nearly the impact they did with the later socket 462 Athlons if Intel had also gone with the real-world superiour DDR memory as opposed to the overhyped megalatency RambusT they did, with their obviously flawed first generation socket 423 Pentium 4s. It was embarrasing watching benchmarks of the "old" coppermine P3s owning the new and VERY expensive socket 423 P4s even with the awful rambus forcefully attached to the P3s to give them the worst fighting position possible. And that`s not even MENTIONING the price o

    Pic is over 4 years old. Most of the stuff on here is ancient as far as tech is concerned. Kinda neat seeing them all next to each other I guess.

    @GeFeldz I agree. I really like what Intel is up to now though. I think they learned a decent lesson there, and it didn`t break them. Of course, now that I say that, they`ll probably end up doing something horrible again soon.

    It is actually weird to see all of this information in one place where you can easily compare the changes in technology. I am familiar with around 85% of these but I have also been building computers for quite a while. I remember the amd socket 7s exploding back when that socket was standard lol. They have come a long ways since then.

    The one computer I`m emotionally attached to, uses PDIF sockets for its CPU and RAM.
