    Default Old Hardware Photo Thread

    I would like to start this thread in order to showcase older hardware. Maybe even gain some photography knowledge. Here's a few I took of a Pentium 150 and what I believe is a stick of memory with my iPhone.

    There are really no rules to this thread, just keep the posts relevant.

    You used to be able to add more RAM to certain Video Cards. This was an upgrade to a Compaq card.

    OK, what these do is complete the memory circuit on a RAMBUS memory (RDRAM) motherboard. You couldn't put two memory sticks into a board without filling the other slots with these blanks. The system couldn't boot without them.

    RAMBUS's RDRAM was one of many innovations in the past. It was an elegant design and much faster than the industry standard (PC133 SDRAM) at the time, but the company that invented it asked for too much in licensing fees from mainboard manufacturers. The result was that (even though it was superior) it never was adopted in a big way. Later, when DDR-SDRAM memory was introduced, RAMBUS sued claiming infringement on their patents. They lost that one, and as such,....they were labeled as Patent Trolls.

    Here's one I just took today of the Pentium. I'm finding it difficult to get the lighting right. Notice the blueish shadow around the chip. Does anyone have any tips on how to avoid that?
