Pentium - Still Awesome by xQUATROx Pentium - Still Awesome by xQUATROx
Hey, everyone!

I dusted off the old Pentium processor I had laying around and made a model of it in 3Ds MAX :)
90MHz goodness looks really cool these days. By the way, this processor is quite heavy!

Software used:
:icon3dsmaxplz: :iconadobeae-plz:
Powered by:
:iconatiplz: :iconamdplz:

-- Render passes used:
:bulletred: Full render
:bulletred: Ambient Occlusion pass
:bulletred: Diffuse pass
:bulletred: Reflection pass
:bulletred: Shadow pass
:bulletred: Specular pass
:bulletred: Z-Depth pass at 2x resolution (to avoid DoF artifacts)

-- Render time of the scene with all passes inside 3Ds MAX: 36min 5s
(imagine how long it would have taken to render it out using this 90MHz Pentium CPU :))

Enjoy!

I used to have a Windows 98 PC from Gateway that had a Pentium MMX Processor. (I played games from popular games like ROTT, Sonic R, and Duke Nukem 3D to Obscure games like 3D Planet Attack and Bad Toys 3D on it)
Of course its been given away since 2006 by my mother. (I was 11 when it was given away and I was 7 when I've gotten it)

Nice.

I don't remember these much, but I pulled a fucking gem out of an old computer someone was going to chuck. A Pentium Socket 3 DX2ODPR66 : 2x Bus Speed, Over Driver Processor, Replacement, 66Mhz. The perfect CPU for Descent II. Even DOSBox can't rock that kind of speed.

Nice render and model! DoF really adds a lot of realism to any render.

My only question is why did it take 36 minutes to render? That seems like a long time for this scene, especially at only 1600x800. Did you render it at a much larger res?
