1  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: ECTS 2004 - Earls Court London on: 2004-09-04 18:45:34
ECTS was totally cool!!!

We went on the Thursday and met the guys from Crystal Squid at the AMD lounge, it was nice to finally put faces to some of the names.

Also  had a chance to play Doom 3 on some high end machine... I will simple say WOOOOOOWWWWEEEEEE!!!!

The guys from AMD were totally cool, I got a chance to see ZTron running on an AMD 64 3800, AMD 64 FX-51 and a Dual Opteron system running Windows XP 64-Bit.

Suffice to say that they all ran like lightining but man oh man did the FX amaze me!!! Ouch I had to engage both anti-aliasing and Bilinear filtering to get the FX up to 100% cpu usage... and that was because my bilinear filtering algo is somewhat crappy.

Windows XP 64 Bit running on the Opterons was the smoothest I have ever experienced any OS... and although it didn't have a VM the AMD guys went out of there way to get things up and running... they are the most professional, all round cool dudes I have ever met!!! These guys weren't just the usual hired help... they really knew there stuff and showed genuine interest in seeing how AMD hardware performs on different applications.

Anyway, I hope we get to meet more javagaming ppl next year... although I think the dual-core AMD processors make their debut around the same time as ECTS next year... so I don't know if I will be able to:

1) Contain my drool
2) Peel myself away from the AMD lounge
3) Correctly formulate sentences
4) Stop hugging the AMD case (as done this year)
