I'm Nostalgia Nerd... I have an addiction to Nostalgia & things often categorised as "nerdy". I talk about software, hardware, games, toys, programs, magazines and other things from the 70s, 80s and 90s, sometimes with a liberal amount of dry humour. The channel's main focus is computer related items from the 80s & 90s. Feel free to visit my website, other social accounts listed below.

Why Were Pentium 2's on Cards? [Byte Size] | Nostalgia Nerd

With the Pentium II, Intel designed a CPU and cache which remained closely integrated, but were mounted on a printed circuit board, called a Single-Edged Contact Cartridge (SECC). In this episode of Byte size, I discuss the reasons behind this switch and also go into details on cache operations in the Pentium Pro, Xeon and Celeron processors, and how they differed from the Pentium II model. ☟Subcribe☟ https://www.youtube.com/user/nostalgianerdvideos?sub_confirmation=1 ✊Support Me! ✊ Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/nostalgianerd?ty=h Visit my eBay Shop: http://ebay.to/1QQpYyy Buy From Amazon (affiliate): http://amzn.to/1OzCQWR ★Nerd Social★ Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/nostalnerd Face: http://www.facebook.com/nostalnerd Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/nostalgianerd Web: http://www.nostalgianerd.com ★Equipment★ Nikon D3200 with 40mm Macro Corel Video Studio Ultimate X7 Corel Paint Shop Pro X6 Blue Snowball Microphone ♜Resources♜ Pentium 2 images courtesy of...

Mystery eBay PC hides SURPRISE | Nostalgia Nerd

Mystery eBay boxes. They're a thing. Well how about a mystery eBay beige PC BOX? Now, that's what I'm talking about. This is a 1990s IBM PC Compatible, I purchased from eBay for £56.

Using a 56k Modem in 2017! | Nostalgia Nerd

Remember the warming sounds of internet dial-up? Trying to get through to your internet provider, without an engaged tone. Trying to get a decent connection speed. Downloading GIFS, GIFS, GIFS.

Atari Jaguar Story | Nostalgia Nerd

The Atari Jaguar. The world's first 64 bit games console. Do the Math. This is how the Atari Jaguar was sold, and I for one, loved it. Launched initially in 1993 in North America, and then the rest of the world in 1994, the Jaguar was a machine which seemed to skip an entire generation of games consoles. Whilst everyone else was playing around with their 16 bits or even 32 bits, Atari smashed it out of the park with 64. Many claimed that it wasn't a true 64 bit console, but with a 64 bit data bus, it really...

Sega Master System Story | Nostalgia Nerd

The Sega Master System was the console Sega launched to pit against Nintendo's NES system in Japan, America, Europe, Australia and other regions. It wasn't the original console which went up against the Nintendo Famicom; that honour went to the SG 1000, however it's weak abilities meant Sega needed something bigger, something better. The Master System was meant to be that console, and although technically superior in many ways, it was late to the market in most regions. However, Europe, Brazil and Australia were regions were the console succeeded, and succeeded well. This video explores the early years of Sega...

The Mystery of the Media Mega Drive | Nostalgia Nerd

The Sega Mega Drive, otherwise known as the Sega Genesis is a popular console. It came in various iterations such as the Mega Drive II, the Multi Mega and even clones. But what in the name of almighty glory is the Media Mega Drive? Well, I didn't know either, so I took a look and then went on quest to find it's origin and it's journey, so I could lay to rest the story of this "rare" console... The Media Mega Drive. Is it a console knock off? Console rip off? A Mega Drive in disguise? A Chinese Mega Drive? Well...

The Genesis Street Fighter 2 Which Never Was | Nostalgia Nerd

Street Fighter 2 Turbo for the Sega Genesis/MegaDrive. It's not a title you usually associate with Sega's 16 bit games machine. After all, Street Fighter II Turbo was released exclusively on the SNES, in terms of 16 bit consoles. So what is Street Fighter 2 Turbo Beta on the Genesis/Megadrive? Well, it's a ROM which emerged in 1994 and has been roaming about since then. Nobody really seems to know how it fits into the Street Fighter 2 timeline, especially in regard to Streetfighter 2 Special Champion Edition, which was the game actually to come out on Sega's hardware. So,...

How Intel & AMD Made 3D Faster - 3DNow! vs. SSE

These days AMD is synonymous with 3D; after all they make graphics cards & the chipsets which power them, but back in the 90s, their main focus was CPUs, and their main rival was Intel. Not very much has changed in that respect, but the late 90s was a different world where 3D games were still in their infancy. This meant that new technologies were flying about to try and squeeze the most from systems at the time. From AMD, one of those was the 3DNow! instruction set incorporated into the AMD K6-2 CPU. Intel's version was SSE, which was...

Why The Sega Mega CD / Sega CD Failed | Nostalgia Nerd

The Sega Mega CD, or Sega CD as it's known in the USA was an upgrade/add-on for the Sega Mega Drive / Genesis which offered CD-ROM capability. Incorporating an additional Motorola 68000 chip, increased memory, and custom graphics and sound processing, the Mega CD was poised to be a massive leap forward in technology for existing Mega Drive owners. However, the additional components meant the unit was simply priced to high for most casual gamers. This, coupled with the delayed launch in Western regions, meant that people simply "made-do" with their existing hardware or waited until something better came along...

Amstrad CPC Story | Nostalgia Nerd

The Amstrad CPC Story begins way back in 1947, with the birth of Alan Michael Sugar. We then meander through Alan Sugar's early working career, the start of his trading business, AMS Trading, and then the formation of Amstrad. From there, between stereos and CB radios we land with the fabulous Amstrad CPC464 in 1984. A machine often cast aside as an "also ran", but in reality, anything but. Selling some 2 million machines, it comes in third place behind the Sinclair Spectrum and Commodore 64, but dominated in parts of Europe. So, let us delve in to the Amstrad...

Acorn vs Sinclair - An Epic '80s Computer Rivalry | Nostalgia Nerd

Although this video involves many companies such as Sinclair Radionics, Sinclair Instrument Ltd, Thandar Ltd and Cambridge Processor Unit, it boils down to the trading names of Acorn Computers and Sinclair Research and the rivalry between them during the early 1980s era of home computers. It's a very British story of the early micro computer industry, with each company respectively owned by Chris Curry (and Herman Hauser) and Clive Sinclair. This video charts the whole story from the inception of Clive Sinclair's first company, Sinclair Radionics, to when Chris Curry started working for him, to when he left and formed...

Shaping up Sonic Mania to 16 Bit Sonic | Nostalgia Nerd

You might witness *SPOILERS* in this video (although I've left out later levels), but then you knew that... why else would you watch a Sonic Mania video if you wanted to avoid spoilers... SO, it's the question which has plagued people from all walks for ages... because TO BE THIS GOOD TAKES AGES. Sonic Mania vs. Sonic 1.... Sonic Mania has hardly gone under the radar, the hype alone has been huge, but now the latest Sonic installment is here, and it looks like a proper sonic game, how does it compare to the Sonics from the Sega Genesis /...

Commodore 64 Story & Review (C64); RE:Collections | Nostalgia Nerd

The Commodore 64, otherwise known as the C64, C-64 or CBM64... What can I say about this machine that hasn't already said. It's an amazing piece of kit which has stood the test of time admirably. In this video, I'll give you the background story of the beast, as well as my personal views, a hardware rundown, my software picks (along with some terrible gameplay) and tell you what's been happening in more recent times for the 30+ year old Commodore machine. Sit back, relax, and grab your joysticks *ahem*. Accompanying article available at http://www.nostalgianerd.com/the-commodore-64 Content Sources: Images either owned by myself,...

ZX Spectrum Next - A New Sinclair Spectrum? | Nostalgia Nerd

There was a time when we all raced to develop the latest and greatest technology. Now it seems we all race to develop copies of machines from 30 years ago. This time around we have the ZX Spectrum Next (From SpecNext Ltd - a UK based company set-up purely for this project).... essentially a modern re-working of the Sinclair ZX Spectrum, this time envisaged in a case reminiscent of the Spectrum+ or Spectrum+ 128k; and you know what? It looks beautiful. I can only hope that the crowd funding campaign goes through and all that is promised is delivered on...

The Atari ST Story | Nostalgia Nerd

The Atari ST is a machine which emerged in 1985 and immediately went head to head with the Amiga 1000. The Atari ST is known for Games, music, desktop publishing and in a lot of cases, being a poorer version of the Amiga, but that's not always the case, and to begin with the ST outsold the Amiga by a fair margin. It comes in many forms, The Atari STFM, Atari STE, even the follow up, the Atari Falcon. In this video we'll explore them all, along with Atari ST Games, Atari ST Music and the story of Commodore, Atari,...

Sinclair ZX Spectrum Story - Birth of a Classic | Nostalgia Nerd

The ZX Spectrum is 35 years old on 23rd April 2017, and it also holds a very special place in my heart, so it's time to wish it a happy birthday... It's the machine I grew up with and which led me to creating this very channel. I've covered the Sinclair ZX Spectrum in the past, but frankly I didn't do it justice, so we're revisiting Sir Clive's iconic 8 bit home micro in detail, starting with The Sinclair Years in this two part documentary. This first part explores Clive Sinclair's early years, from his childhood to the formation of...

1981 1KB Computer vs. Modern PC: CHESS | Nostalgia Nerd

The game of chess is an ancient one, dating back to sometime around the 6th century. While the Sinclair ZX81 isn't quite that old, it is now 37 years old. Standard ZX81 models came with only 1KB of RAM, but somehow David Horne managed to squeeze a playable chess game into that space. The question is, can 1K ZX81 chess compete with a more modern chess engine, in this computer vs computer chess game. ** For exclusive videos, mystery boxes and other rewards, please consider supporting me at; https://www.patreon.com/nostalgianerd?ty=h ** ☟Sharing☟ If you wish to share this video in forums, social media, on...
