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)

the pentium is still around
not as ubiqutous as before
not the monster it used to be it hovers between core and celeron (celeron being the joke ) but its still around

all hail the pentium yes ?

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?

Thanks for the comment :)

Rendertime is probably so long because:
All settings were pretty high, had to render 7 passes (which still eats up some time, I think) and this was rendered on my laptop (AMD Turion 64x2 TL-60 2GHz dual-core CPU, 4GB DDR2 RAM, ATI Radeon HD2600 512MB VRAM Video card).

The further I go with optimizing my renderings, the less time for same quality I get. This scene wasn't all that optimized, I suppose.

Ahhhh, laptop with 4gb of RAM. That explains it. Great work regardless of rendertime!

RAM doesn't affect rendertime much, it's just where all the info is stored during modelling and rendering (this laptop used to have 2GBs of RAM, but MAX always crashed when I tried to render multi-million polygon scenes, so I had to go up to 4 gigs). It's the CPU that's a bottleneck here as it does all the calculations. I'm gonna buy a new beasty laptop in a couple of months anyway (not a desktop, tho' because I'm gonna start my studies abroad and having a desktop won't cut it)... :D

I had 3 Pentiums... One went down the tube because I made a hair comb out of it. The other two are still in my drawer :D

It was my intention to make this scene look as realistic as possible. Render settings were pretty high and I spent quite some time tweaking everything to perfection :)

The raw render was nothing like what you can see here. All the different passes I combined really helped sell the shot :)
Actually, for the sake of speed, I rendered the final scene without shadows, just with the lighting mixed HDRi skylight + directional light.
Pretty neat, huh? :)

COMPUTER PROCESSOR HAIRCOMB FTW

I did this with a celeron, but the pins got all dirty.
