Consumption of CPU (not the whole pc) depends mainly on the thickness of the conductors, which is on the latest i7 series - I think - 14 nanometers, which means roundabout 90 silicon atoms. Which means you own a true wonder of technology. To make conductors of a diameter of 90 atoms you need really sophisticated tools, you can't do this on a wooden workbench.

Most probably your new cpu being more powerfull doesn't mean necessarily to need more current. If every electric device would be as efficient as your cpu, some energy companies would go bust.

Or - if you compare how much light is created with 200 watts using light bulbs and how much fun is created with 200 watts, playing games on PC - to me PC is the absolute winner regarding efficiency.

[EDIT] Or - even worse - compared with ancient times, where they needed much bigger devices to run their games to have some fun - as there was no 14 nm technology:



So if Nero would come back on earth and you'd show him a pc, he probably would ask: and where do I put the gladiators in? And if you can't run gladiators on it, he would strongly doubt, you can have fun with this PC-thing (Privat Circus?).

It seems incompatibility is the price you have to pay for the progress of civilization.

BTW. Isn't it CIV III, where you have to fight tanks with mediaval knights - if you don't upgrade your technology in time?

Yes it is, one has to carefully upgrade with computer players and others to be on the same ladder of evolution as everyone else. But Knights Can win against tanks sometimes. ;)

Glad you got your new computer up and running.
And good luck with your upcoming heart intervention :thumbsup:

...nor does Civ III...
Ah, another soul who still plays Civ III in 2018  :bye:

I actually play Civ 2 now and then. And the original Quake that dates form 1996, if I am correct....

I would like to play Civ1 again, juts for the fun of it (and the fact that I made a Dutch translation), but I can't get it unpacked from my archive. It was written in four floppy's and should be unpacked from floppy. But I have no disk-station anymore (who does these days?). And then again: how to get it running on WIN whatever past XP? Pity actually...

For Ms-Dos based games (Civ1?) there's an emulator called DosBox. This emulator f.e. is used on archive.org https://archive.org/details/softwarelibrary_msdos_games

But now we're running really far of topic.

Time, mrbisonm shows some new renders, I guess?

I was playing CIV VI today and took out a knight with a nuclear submarine. Some things just never change in CIV  :D
