Boost if your first PC had a Turbo button.
@federicomena I remember it being there, but I don't remember it being useful in any way, shape, or form.
Ah! Thanks for solving the mystery! If only I had known that in 1993. Maybe things would've turned out differently for me. Like, I could be president of the moon right now or something.
@federicomena I want to build a little drive bay device that just has a turbo button on it so I can stick it in my modern computer. Wouldn't do jack of course, but by the time I was around the OS was able to override it anyway.
@federicomena I think my first PC was before turbo buttons? I did have a turbo button at some point, though.
@federicomena One should start a project putting a modern ATX mobo into one of these chassis, and use the Turbo Button to enable/disable Turbo Boost. Just connect the button to one of the GPIO input.
@federicomena The first few PCs I used had turbo buttons, but they weren't "my" PCs. Boosting regardless!
@federicomena CP/M computers didn't have turbo buttons.
But I still use a PC with a turbo button, though now it is just a decoration because the board in that case has no connector for it. It is a very early ATX case but very serviceable so I don't want to part with it.
@federicomena it didn't. it had a built-in midi-out, could read DD-disks and had the coolest function keys ever tho
