I'll start with an easy one.
hands down the one of the best processors amd has ever made. it was so damn good. to this day its better than any of the processors amd has released outside of the 8350 and thats only because the 8350 can out overclock it.
Still using my i5-2500k
I've never needed to overclock her either.
Microchip's PIC 18F4550
>8 bit microcontroller
>32 kb flash program memory
>256 bytes EEPROM memory
>10 bit A/D Converter
>USB 2.0 compatibility
>2048 bytes in RAM
>5 I/O ports
>Assembly by default, only suitable for God tier coders.
Pic/PIC very fucking related
>Arduino is for fags.
No, when I had it I used it, now my CPU doesn't even have it anymore.
But it's extremely confusing to read load times with HT, literally nobody knows what the "real" load is when HT is on, you've got to guess it.
It doesn't matter really, but once I neede precise load times and I was pretty baffled that they couldn't be found precisely.
Had an Athlon II X4 620 for a while, got it for free in an old prebuilt. In a new motherboard I managed to push the damn thing from 2.6GHz to 3.5GHz, using nothing but BCLK overclocking, pushing about 1.4 volts. Didn't even run hot.

XP1700 T-bred JIUHB DLT3C
1.4ghz stock but overclocked for almost 100% gain.. 2.5-2.6ghz at 1.7v on air was what mine ran at.
>tfw 2500K OC'ed, 560 Ti on 314.22, and 8GB ram
Celeron 300A was every cheap bastard's wet dream back in the 90's.
nah, the 266 and 300 were overclockers dreams. I build a number of gaming rigs using 266's overclocked to 400MHz and a handful of 300's overclocked to 450MHz. Slap a Voodoo2 in there and you're good as gold.
1.4GHz Pentium III-s
Slaughtered everything running at the same clock speed and, IIRC even 1.8GHz Willamette P4's had to bow to it.
Oh, it's also SMP capable, making it even better.
I dream of memes
at least have the decency to post the classic Z80
Well yeah, everyone knows that netburst was a joke until northwood. Williamette 1.8 was getting beat by a 1GHz coppermine in most tasks. Why do you think Intel went back to the short pipeline high IPC low clock style of the PIII?
Gotta agree m8 my rig is poorfag tier (built in 2011) but the i5 is still putting the work in
Intel Celeron J1900
>iGPU with 854MHz and Intel QuickSync
>Passive heatsink with a 105°C TJunction
>Comes in a motherboard
>Costed ~$80 at launch
The FirePro W7100 is slightly more powerful then the R9 380 and it's single slot.
i have a board like that.
D2500 though so its a little weaker, but it has a pcie x16 slot running at 4x, and a pci slot.
Got it for $15 and I'm fairly happy with it considering how weak it is
>mfw overclocking xeons from that era on dual socket boards
I think in terms of CPU's, OP meant CPU's that were good price/performance when they were released and still give relatively good performance even today and will continue to do so for a few more years
for example, C2Q may be outdated, but you can still use it for games and general desktop shit just fine
>not posting glorious MMX
I have one of those fuckers running pfsense, on a gigabyte board though since it had 2 NIC's
I do wish I got the habey one though, mine just has 2 realtek NIC's while the habey has intel
The only good Netburst ever released.
Cheap, overclocked brilliantly (3.2ghz was easy), had extras like Hyper Threading.
>first decently powerful, low TDP mobile CPU
>architecture gave rise to the entire Core series (that you still use today)
>Running with very low average power consumption and much lower heat output than desktop processors, the Pentium M runs at a lower clock speed than the laptop version of the Pentium 4 (The Pentium 4-Mobile, or P4-M), but with similar performance - a 1.6 GHz Pentium M can typically attain or even surpass the performance of a 2.4 GHz Pentium 4-M.
Pentium M masterrace
>8800gt is so untouchable
I had the AMD counterpart back in the day, the HD 3870, but even low end cards beat it these days
Athlon 64 x2 6000, 8 years with this bastard until pc got scrapped
That platform was a test-bed for Intel on placing L2 cache onto CPU-die. It had less L2 cache then Pentium-II of heyday, but Celeron As operate that cache at full-speed. Unlike Pentium II and III Katamis where their L2 cache operated at half clock speed.
P-III Tualatin were bitched slapped by Palomino Athlon XPs at the time. The FSB held back the P-III Tualatins.
P-III Tualatin were just a beta-test for 180nm process that P4 Northwood took advantage and completely wiped the floor.
AMD Athlon 64 FX-60 Dual Core
Still being used in my media center OC'd to 3.1ghz.
