Old School Monday: Pure Power Preview

Amber Bouman

Want to know how accurate boot magazine was with its yearly tech previews? It was often called booterdamus by those in the know in the industry. NO, we made that up but someone should have said that. Afterall, the magazine correctly predicted such things as: a Pentium II on a 100MHz front side bus for 1998, 19-inch CRTs reaching the “low” price of $850, and 15-flat panels going for $3,000. Of course, that was nothing compared to the prediction of the Voodoo2 being the Hotel Sierra videocard for the coming year. All this and more in a look in this weeks edition of Old School Monday. - Gordon Mah Ung
