OS/2 compatible hardware

2020-01-22 01:49:15 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [os2.guru]

OS/2 GURU published more reports about tested hardware

  • modern motherboards
  • USB Audio adapters
Database of hardware: http://os2.guru/hardware.php

What computer configuration is optimal for OS/2 in 2020?

  • you don't need extreme NVidia video adapter
  • no need in i9 and 64 Gb of RAM
  • on the other side, it's stupid to run OS/2 on MMX and Pentium from 2004

OS/2 Benchmarks: http://os2.guru/sysbench


Tested hardware

2020-01-05 03:18:08 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [os2.guru]

os2.guru makes efforts to update the database of hardware tested with OS/2. We could publish a hundred of reports during the january. Send us report about modern hardware manufactured after 2010.


What computer is better for OS/2 ?

2020-01-04 01:44:17 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [os2.guru]

We are collecting benchmark logs at http://os2.guru/sysbench

Let's analyze the results,

  • No need to use expensive external video adapters. Better use Intel integrated than NVidia external.
  • (obviously) 4 cores is better than 2 cores
  • (obviously) SSD is faster than HDD
  • (obviously) New computers are faster than old

Let's collect other 30 reports to get more conclusions.


What computer is faster in OS/2?

2019-12-15 23:14:50 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [os2.guru]

The user have many questions:

  • If you should assemble super fast computer, is it necessary select the best CPU?
  • What configuration is weak and slow in OS/2?
  • What computer is good, doesn't freeze?
  • Is it necessary buy the latest i7? or you can stay with Core 2 Duo?

Let's collect reports generated by sysbench and make conclusions based on the statistics.

If you want play the game:

  • Download sysbench
  • start sysbench, select: All tests
  • Wait (5 - 10 minutes), don't start apps
  • save the report to 20191225.txt
  • send the report and notes to email: eg at ecomstation dot ru
  • Please add:
  • a) Model of motherboard / laptop / brand PC
  • b) CPU? how many cores do you see at Pulse?
  • b) Model of video card, what driver: SNAP or Panorama?
  • d) model of HDD / SSD:

We will collect the results at the site: os2.guru/sysbench


Core 2 Duo modernization to Xeon

2019-12-14 01:51:09 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [os2.guru]

We can't recall if OS/2 users were discussing upgrade of Core 2 Duo to Xeon processors. Installation of Xeon LGA771 to LGA775 socket. Seems that this topic was popular in the Internet since 2014.

Imagine that you upgrade CPU with 2 cores and cache 2 Mb to *servre* CPU with 4 cores and 12 Mb cache. Of course, your computer should work faster. Check Xeon E5430

So, reminder: If you have motherboard with Core 2 Duo (LGA775), with support of 1333, 1600, then you can install Quad Xeon CPU (LGA771). Of course, you should make some efforts: update bios from CD + cut the socket + attach small converter to cpu.

ATTENTION: Send us the comparison: Before and After

  • use sysbench. collect All tests before and After upgrade

Write a review of OS/2

2019-12-11 16:57:10 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [os2.guru]

OS2.GURU is interested publish installation of OS/2 on unique computer.

example: mini-itx с wifi (rus)

We expect that you show interesting computer:

  • all-in-one computer with IPS screen
  • Thinkpad X201 with IPS display
  • new cheap laptop from a shop with UEFI
  • Thinkpad W540 or other expensive
  • Thinkpad T61 Frankenpad or Z61t
  • mini-ITX с wifi motherboard
  • industrial computer with mini-itx
  • Acer 8930G 18"
  • etc

The review seems finished if you describe how it will be used (review of installed applications)

eCo Software can reward some reviews. (virtual 5$, 10$, 15$ which you can spend to purchase our apps)


ArcaOS (OS/2) - a road to audio-nirvana

2018-11-24 02:33:18 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [os2.guru]

We found a discussuon of ArcaOS (OS/2) for audiophiles at DAstereo.ru site. Discussion (RUS)

(you need a modern web-browser to open this site)


OS/2 and 4K monitors

2018-08-06 11:07:14 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [os2.guru, Igor Sapegin]

ArcaOS 5.0 + Panorama videodriver support 4K monitors:

  • use video adapter with support of 4K
  • the video mode works if connect via DisplayPort, HDMI - doesn't

3840x2160

Now the user should solve the problem of small letters and icons.


OS/2 and AF / Advanced Format

2017-03-13 04:02:09 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [os2.guru]

Help us find the discussion of AF standard for harddrives support in OS/2. There was a discussion somewhere in the Internet, maybe at os2world.com

General questions: can you install OS/2 to AF disk? Do you feel slow speed? How to create partitions to follow AF standard?

Mainframe with OS/2

2016-04-01 16:20:45 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [os2.guru]

Do you know that IBM used OS/2 in mainframes? Mainframe with OS/2 inside


USB web-cameras for OS/2

2016-03-18 00:55:57 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [os2.guru]

Wim Brul continues to update the drivers and utilities for web-cameras for OS/2: Tested web-cameras.

The support of web-cameras may be used to create "Microscope" application, to create utiliti aimed to capture photos from the camera, to capture video.

How to support the project? Inform the developer, does the driver support your web-camera or not.
