What takes just a couple seconds longer on latest hardware can take minutes on an older system. Yup, we might even had ended up with higher quality software in that case. They also say striving for cross-platform compatibility improves code quality. Regarding performance, they say horse power is cheap while the effort to optimize for older hardware is not. 14 hours ago, Wunderbar98 said: It's a minor hassle, BIOS clock needs to be manually adjusted twice a year for daylight savings time and periodically if time drifts. So there are motherboards out there with relatively decent quartz crystals? Mine accmulates about 1 second per day lag. It was a cheaper model though. I wouldn't be surprised if they don't focus as much on those even on high end motherboards since who doesn't regularly sync time over NTP anyway. Windows 10 even does it daily out-of-the-box. I've set my car's clock about a minute forward from then current time about 2 years ago, I wasn't targetting exact minute, so not sure how much forward it was, just in case, and the clock forward is still better in the sense you can't be late if you orient from such clock (excluding the possibilities of extraordinary events). It's still about 50 seconds forward. Of course, my car does not and cannot go online to sync clock. Edited April 22, 2022 by UCyborg Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
