    How can we still barely hit 60 fps on console, hardly ANY games did on console last gen, yet in 2001 we were doing it? Lmao Also, Diablo 2 had already been out for a while at this point, Runescape came out that year, I was a huge PC gamer back then. Actually, I had already been gaming on PC since about 1994 with Wolfenstein, Duke Nukem, Doom, and a pc game that came with Chex Cereal lol. My Dad was a Capital Police Officer, but we had a computer business in the garage. Kind of weird I’m not a tech tuber lol. But I do want to be. I just need my studio and equipment first.

    People who love to shit on soundcards in this day and age don't forget how bad - if you had it at all - onboard audio was in the late 90's and early 00's. in 2001 you actually needed one for more than just more audio I/O. If you built your own PC, which wasn't as common back then, most motherboards didn't even bother with it.

    When I was a freshman in High School, there was no such thing as gaming PC's or Laptops. Hell, the PC's of the time were from IBM and Tandy, and Atari had the 800XL! The Atari 2600 was still around, the video game crash hadn't happened yet, and I was rocking a Mattel Intellivision with about 25 carts! How times have really changed!

    well.... in 2001. games weren't really all about performance and having the highest fps and the best latency, only really few games that requires those exist and online competitive was barely non-existent, it mostly just quake and everquest. it was more about enjoyment. and what better way to enjoy games than having better looking graphics and immersing yourself in surround sound or.... better sound which is why sound was important back then. the only thing remotely close to e sport back then was probably street fighter tournaments.

    PC gaming in 2001 was cool because your basic family computer could still play pretty much anything out at the time. I didn't even build a computer specifically for gaming until 2005 or 2006 or something. Before then I'd just use our HP, or Acer, or Compaq, or whichever family computer we had at that specific time.(That green Acer was the coolest, lol. Compaq was the worst)

      @Troll weeb Not really. At the time, if you wanted to play something like Battlefield Vietnam, or Battlefield 2, or any of the Source engined games, you really needed a purpose built machine to get it to run. Especially Stuff running Source. Half-Life 2 was a huge step above basically everything when it came out. It was like the Cyber Punk of the day, except it wasn't rushed trash. Battlefield 2 was actually what I built my first rig to be able to play because our family computer couldn't run it(or anything made using the Source engine.)

    As a college student in the early 2000s, I would say the driving factor was my age range. The best connections online were T1 connections, and only universities really had them, so gaming made sense for us. I still remember being hooked on Starsiege:Tribes, and voodoo cards were all the rage.

    That nVidia GPU from 2001 is $597.29 in todays money after you account for inflation. So, you could say that the price is right on the newer ones I guess... I mean I don't like it, but it is what it is I guess.

    You have to remember that most computers from around 2001 and before didn't even have an audio card (having any kind of "multimedia" was a marketing point and introduced a premium in the computer's price). That's why they spent a lot of time talking about audio. Nowadays no one cares about audio because every computer comes with "good enough" audio cards.

    2001 most important thing, sound 2021 sound is watered down and who cares. Most people are using 2.0 speakers from the monitor. True 7.1 is only a thing with high end motherboards and most people won't install a sound card on lower end motherboard even they still sell them. I have a Asus DX 7.1 that allows external decoding of DTS and Dolby Digital for watching movies. It's still worth the investment. Oh, and for prologic most onboard only decode 16bit at 48.000KHz While sound cards have SPDIF and decode 24bit at 192,000KHz. There is a difference in the crispness of the sound with a sound card's filtering on the analog side of things. Most of the time, people will use the GPUs sound output today unless using a external decoder. Again, 2.0.

    You are right with computer technology being way more exciting today. But not only because there was more advancement, but primarily because there was CHOICE. An nearly unlimited amount of potions for anything you could care about. Also it was about things that really count, like: performance and configuration, but not about bullshit like 'looks'. Also the technology was more robust and more productive. I'd take a 4:3 notebook built like back then over that shitty chintzy 16:9 toys without any hesitation.

    The reason for the massive upgrade from a CPU speed boost was due to the fact that they were single core and pretty slow. That single core was driving the entire machines hardware and OS. The IPC was also pretty poor back then so even a modest clock speed increase could boost performance significantly. It's also the reason overclocking was such a big thing then compared to now, a free '50mhz' overclock on a CPU could mean a dozen or more FPS in games and cutting seconds from load times something akin to 10-15% performance uplift for free. These days a 3-500 MHz overclock sees very little performance boosts usually.
