A few pieces of new hardware


I added a few pieces of new hardware. Most notable is a Vesa Local Bus system from NexGen Inc. with a Nx586-P90 CPU. Another interesting piece is likely the MPEG-1 video accelerator board for the Diamond Stealth 64 VRAM VLB.

Long Night of Computer Games 2016


On 30th of April there was the Long Night of Computer Games in Leipzig and we setup 13 old PCs with mainly DOS games in our corner.

Check out the Photos too !

In addition I also updated the Hardware Gallery with a few new pieces, like miro graphic cards, a dual tualatin mainboard from ASUS and more.

Easter Update


All of the old Hardware Gallery has moved now to retronn.de. I fixed also a lot of wrong information on card identification as well as technical specs. There are now 643 cards in the gallery.
There is also an overview of my assembled PC systems with pictures and screenshots. This may be used for decisions if you like to build your own retro PC. Additionally there are now some scans of of vintage ads (like Intel Pentium), brochures and pictures from Events such as the Long Night of Computer Games in Leipzig. The next will take place on 30th of April.
For your convenience I also implemented under Music an Audio Player with currently two CDs from SID-Spieler. The VIC Sound Collection with the best music from the Commodore VIC-20 and X 2014 with all the SID songs from the X 2014 demo party.

February Update


Got about 50% of the old hardware gallery migrated to the new one. Some cards still miss a detailed description, some photos do not have the quality I would like to see... However driver links work as well as the videos showing cards performing, like the Matrox m3D.

Welcome to retronn.de!


I started this project in early 2016. The page is about old computer hardware, features a hardware gallery and videos captured directly from real old systems. It is currently under construction, however you can already use it as far as the features work.

I am currently migrating the old Hardware Gallery, which will take a while due to the amount of components.

Also the videos work already in Chrome nicely.
