unknown porcessors 2.0 Ghz x2 (yep, a branch in my dad's company closed off, so they were selling all the computer material pretty cheap. even though it's odd...)
i can't even say what model the processors are, there is no info available on it. even weirder:
OS/2 Warp 4.2
simply because for some reason, windows refuses to work on it, only linux and this actually works.
4GB RAM (8 slots of ram, only 2 used by ddr400 memory 2GB sticks, again, weird simply because it wouldn't fit on any other computer models.)
the mainboard model is also unknown, everything on it is written in korean.
didn't have a choice but to put an old 40GB hard drive, that's all i had lying around...
internal sound card. not working because i can't find drivers for it.as for it's brand, i have no clue, since it's onboard.
there is no PCI ports, nor AGP ports, not even ISA ports. video card is onboard too, there too, no idea of it's capabilities...
can anyone help me figure out what the hell it is? even the FCC id site couldn't turn up any info on it...
man. if this was a human shaped computer, i think i landed on a chobits. i just wish i could run windows on it, or mac os...
huh...funny, but even without any drivers or decent OS, it packs a big punch. tried some basic benchmarking program. i was only able to test out processing power, but it outmatches my amd mentioned a few posts above by almost 400%...now i know data often differs from benchmarking programs and OS, but i did also install os2 on my normal machine, just by curiosity. could be the 2 processors against one i guess, but even if i split the results in 2, a n unknown 2Ghz processor is twice more powerful than an 2.084?
Where have you been, EVERYTHING is made in Korea these days. lolAtvaark wrote:an ibm machine huh? well it's true they made some weird systems and all, but did they make korean machines? i guess i just have to keep searching. it doesn't explain why the FCC ID is not recognized on the net. doesn't all machines or parts that have such a code supposed to be listed there?
