  1. [HOW TO] Convert Mac demos to full games

    Has anyone got Doom 3 working with the 1.3.1 Rev. A patch that came out 2/2/2007?
  2. Intel (Errors) Inside

    I found this on slashdot. "The MPC7410 family of chips (aka G4) from Freescale (formally part of Motorola) has 21 errata currently listed: MPC7410CE.pdf [freescale.com] The MPC7447 family of chips (aka G4) from Freescale has 36 errata currently listed: MPC7457CE.pdf [freescale.com] The PPC 970FX (aka G5) from IBM has 24 errata currently listed: 970fx_errata_dd3.x_v1.6.pdf [ibm.com]" The Opteron has 64 eratta. "The errata for the AMD Opteron is 85 pages long [amd.com]. I once spoke with a chipset designer and he told me that the Opteron errata was especially long with some convoluted workarounds, compared to other CPUs he's worked with." "At least 136 in the Athlon. Google html of the pdf: www.amd.com/us-en/assets/content_type/white_papers _and_tech_docs/25759.pdf+amd+athlon+errata&hl=en&c lient=firefox-a [] Amd's original (pdf!) http://www.amd.com/us-en/assets/content_type/white _papers_and_tech_docs/25759.pdf [amd.com]" I couldn't find anything about Pentiums (and I didnt spend the time googling), but I would assume that the numbers are similar. In other words, this really isnt anything abnormal and this is why chip makers create microcode updates to be put into bios updates.
  3. User Experiences With New iMacs

    I thought I read somewhere that the key for cd booting on Intel Macs is 'd' and not 'c'. Anyone else heard this?
