ChatGPT chatbot reaches ancient computers with 31-year-old Windows 3.1

Published

Having ported the iconic game Doom to a wide variety of devices (from smartwatches to digital cameras, scanners, calculators and even pregnancy tests), enthusiasts are turning their attention to ChatGPT. This time, access to the ChatGPT chatbot appeared for PCs running Windows 3.1, an operating system released more than 30 years ago.

Implemented this with a third-party WinGPT application built using the standard Windows API of the era and a standard set of controls. The only “non-native” user interface element is the status bar, which the developer had to implement manually. Despite the presence of a built-in status bar in Windows 3.1, Microsoft did not make it available to developers, so the creator of WinGPT had to use their own 1997 code to achieve the desired result.

The program connects to the OpenAI API server using the TLS 1.3 encryption standard released in 2018. This eliminates the need for a proxy with a modern operating system to establish and maintain communications.

As you might expect, WinGPT has significant limitations. For example, due to limited memory support, WinGPT receives terse responses that do not take into account the context of the dialog.

WinGPT can be downloaded for free from dialup.net and run on any 16-bit or 32-bit version of Windows above 3.11 with a Winsock implementation. Additionally, you will need to enter an OpenAI API key to run WinGPT.

The size of Chinas computer industry has exceeded a third

According to the Chinese Academy of Information and Communications Technology, over the past six years, Beijing has supplied the market with more than 20.91 million general purpose servers and 820 thousand servers based on artificial intelligence technologies.

The volume of China’s computer industry in 2022 amounted to more than $362.2 billion. This became known at the World Computer Conference 2023, which opened in Changsha, Hunan Province, Central China.

Apple beat everyone again The A17 Pro SoC in the

Apple iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max smartphones are known to have received the A17 Pro SoC, and this is a very interesting platform that is currently unique on the market.

Apple beat everyone again.  The A17 Pro SoC in the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max is manufactured using a 3 nm process technology and is capable of running modern computer games

It’s worth starting with the fact that this is the first mobile single-chip system and, apparently, the first consumer chip in general, which is produced using the 3 nm process technology at TSCM facilities. Previously, information appeared on the Internet that Apple had purchased all orders for some time regarding this technical process.

The SoC configuration includes only six processor cores: two productive and four energy-efficient. There is also a 16-core NPU and a new six-core GPU. The last one is especially important here. Apple says this is the largest GPU redesign in iPhone history. Compared to the GPU in the Apple A16 Bionic, the new one is 20% faster. But at the same time, it supports hardware acceleration of ray tracing, and MetalFX Upscaling technology allows you to relieve the graphics core. And all of this together is enough to run full-fledged computer games on the new iPhone Pro: Resident Evil Village, Resident Evil 4 Remake, Death Stranding and Assassin’s Creed Mirage! Yes, we have yet to evaluate the quality of graphics, resolution, etc., but this takes mobile gaming to previously unprecedented heights.
