developer runs windows cpu 128mb ram windows 7 found with video

It takes half an hour to boot into Windows 7 running on a 5 MHz CPU with 128MB of RAM

TL;DR: The race to 1GHz was very much a real thing at the turn of the century. It was quite entertaining as well, coming down to a photo finish between AMD and Intel (the former took the win by mere days). Fast forward to today and you won't be able to find a new desktop CPU with a clock speed under 1.6GHz or so. But, you can underclock an existing chip to run much slower and that's exactly what NTDEV did in his latest video.
