    What about running this forum from a Raspberry Pi? I mean, it can be done right? Also I have a 500/500 fiber connection at home without data cap, so if that is enough I might be able to help out? And a friend of mine has given me a FREE vm in the past so that might be a solution too? Let me know!

    All versions of the PSX GPU had dithering - but that feature is under programmer control, so if it's turned on in a specific game it's because someone decided to turn it on. To be fair, although it looks pretty horrible on modern displays it was a much more acceptable tradeoff when most people were using composite (or even RF!) to drive their display.

    What he's talking about is the banding - for architectural reasons, the mode the video DAC ran in with the original GPU had to match the mode the framebuffer was set to - so for 3D games it was using 5:5:5 RGB which produced the banding you can see in the old GPU photos.
    The new version of the GPU always runs the DAC in 24 bit (8:8:8 RGB) mode so it can produce much smoother shading.

    I mean I can't say I would be surprised at this point.
    An RPI would be far too weak and I highly doubt anyone here trusts you enough to host the site.

    It's hard to be certain at this time if it is all a marketing stunt, but you never know with Kevin being Kevin.

    Raspberry Pi's aren't exactly the most powerful things in the world. Whilst they have the potential to do many things, making it into a server based system is not on the list of things to do. It's not possible, even with the latest version that's come out.

    If anything, rather than getting stuck into a Raspberry Pi, why not go for a server-based system, such as an Apple Xserve? Sure, they're outdated, but get a few of them and you'll be good. (they made different ones fit for different purposes like, RAID, et cetera. Just to make sure to go for ones with the identifier, Xserve3,1 as that was the most powerful in the range and the final one, just make sure to have the top of the line Quad-Core model, or to make things easier for you, get a cheesgrater Mac Pro Server) Just my opinion, take it with a grain of salt. Everyone's opinion is different.

    Kind regards,

    FromAllAspects
