Interested in comparing specifications of yesterday, today and tomorrow's PC Computers? We're making this research available from previous Build Or Buy Presentations. This will give us a path from 1994, 1997 ...July 1, 2001 and beyond for tomorrow's expectations.
In this brief time, we saw bold statements regarding MPC, WinHEC and current PC Design Guides. Although processors have increased in speed 10 fold from 1997 - Intel Pentium 133 MHz to May 30, 2001 - Athlon 1.3 GHz, everything else on a PC has changed as well. More powerful PC's allow more powerful applications. Remember when Desktop Publishing was a Big Deal? It still is! Now Desktop Musician Recording Studios are within grasp of most anyone with a PC and the desire to learn. Does a PC make one more creative? PC's have allowed new applications which allow us to be more creative in new ways. Talent still helps!
The following chart compares key requirements and recommendations of the Multimedia PC, Level 1 and Level 2 Specifications. Complete information about the MPC specifications are available from the Multimedia PC Marketing Council.
Please note: The above requirements were minimum system requirements and not a recommendation by the Multimedia PC Marketing Council for a particular system configuration.
