View Full Version : Membership Ranks: Why is there a 65832?

Having just risen to the ranks of 65832, I'm wondering why it's there. It is used if you have posts between 1500 and 1504, with 1505 signifying your rise to 68000.

Therefore, it seems silly to even have it, wouldn't one agree? Right now, I'm the only person falling in this narrow range on the entire site. That sort of suggests that that membership level is a little bit silly.

edit: see! it's been 10 minutes since I originally posted this, and I'm already at the next membership level. pointless and silly, I tell you! Pointless and silly! :D

why ask why - its kind of interesting that its so narrow, only shows up once in a great while - a rarity :D

Yes, D, those fifteen minutes were a special time... ;) You're probably right, it's a nice little oddity.

They are beating around saying that the "levels" correspond to processors - that processor had a short life. :)

Where might I find the list which correlates number-of-posts to processor-used-by-Apple?

And jsw--I agree. Considering the number of people who ask about this, it should be in the FAQ. Hopefully, arn will get around to it. It's not a big deal, but might be useful to some new people.

With some really high posters it seems time for newer processors to be added.
MacRumors could make 3Ghz before IBM then.

7000? Big deal - check out Mr. Anderson! :eek: I'd love to have Arn take away his title just for a minute so we could see what he would be ranked... He'd have to be a G3 or a G4 without a doubt! :cool:

Jun 26, 2004, 10:39 AM
And yes, the short "member status life" of the 65832 is indicative of the short life the actual processor had in the history of Apple's machines, as is the case with the 68010. I think it's actuallly quite clever and thorough of Arn+team to set things up this way.

That's not exactly how it would work - the member rankings are based on processor architectures, not speeds. So technically, the only new rankings after 601 could be G3, G4 and G5 (regardless of if you're talking about a 1.6 GHz G5 or a 3 GHz G5). Arn would just have to set ther post counts high so that it would take members ages to actually achieve those levels.

if i ever got to a rare number title like that, i'd probably have to stop posting for a couple of months, or spread out those 4 or 5 crucial posts so i could keep the rare title. :D

ah... i just checked how many posts i'm at now... looks like i've way gone past my chance at having 68000 :p oh well, not too many ranks left for me now. :D and i'm also at 3.4 posts a day, and i don't remember posting that many in a day for quite a while. kind of scary thinking about how many hours i've spent here in some days. :eek: :p

You're forgetting the 603, 603e, 604, and 604e...Not to mention the fact that if you referred to the GX families by their actual processor id number, then you'd get a few for each family. The most recent example would be that G5's could be 970's or 970FX's.

It's a moot point right now anyway, as I'll have to be posting for a couple more years before I get close to those ranks. My life is too busy to be sitting on these forums posting 10-20 messages a day! ;) :cool:

You are exactly right. I vote that they should be added. I do more browsing then posting, so I'll never be much higher then regular probably - but I always did wonder why I never saw anyone higher than 601; which was first put into a mac, what almost a decade ago? I don't remember exactly when, but I bought one when it was first announced - a 6100/60AV. Finally retired it last year. :)

What Apple machine ever used a 65832? Did the chip even exist? I don't recall any Apple machine with a 68010 either...

What Apple machine ever used a 65832? Did the chip even exist? I don't recall any Apple machine with a 68010 either...

I don't know how much it was actually used, but Western Design Center, which originally designed the 65816 microprocessor, created the 65832 as a 32-bit version to the 65816. It was supposed to go into the Apple IIgs I believe, don't know if it ever did or not...

As for the 68010, it never became common as there was extra costs and complexity involved, with marginal benefits, which made companies shy away from it. It had a marginal speed boost over the 68000, but most vendors held out until the 60820. I believe Apple may have briefly used this processor in the Macintosh II, but I could be wrong...

To give you an idea of the chip's obscurity, search for '65832' in Google. The first two results are about the parts of speech and the third is this thread. Searching for 'what mac used 65832' reveals that the first three results are from this thread. :D

Result number 4 is some song parody of the Apple ]['s existence (Apple2History.org (http://apple2history.org/parodies/wreck.html)). At the bottom of the page, there are some citations. Number 12 pertains to the matter at hand:


The company that had made the 16-bit 65816 was at one time willing to make a more advanced 32-bit processor, the 65832. However, Apple's unwillingness to commit to creating a computer that would use that processor doomed any potential for this company to design that processor.


This suggests that 65832 was never even designed!

More details can be found here (http://apple2history.org/history/ah11.html).

There never was a 65832. There's no evidence that I'm aware of that it was designed or even architected.

Bill Mensch offered to design and build one if Apple wanted one. Apple declined.

Yes, I agree - what would be after the 601 anyway? There were a few flavors, weren't there, like a 601+, 603/603e, 604/604e, etc.? Then I guess you could get into the PowerPC 750s and of course the 74xx series, which would no doubt give you about 5 or 6 rankings before moving onto the 970/970fx. :cool:

I think it's fine as it is, although arn had better make start making those high rankd 10k posts apart instead of 5000.

Why, I remember when mad jew was still 604, and I remember when he hit G3. at 30,000 posts, he might hit G5, but it's gonna get real hard to give him a rank at 45-50k. :o

The system ain't broke, so don't fix it.

Why should we have everything 'neat and tidy'? I like the irregularity of the current rankings :)

I don't think 'changing the rankings to make people post more' is the right way to go - aren't we aiming for quality not quantity of postings?

The only thing I would change would be to make the current ranking names slightly more newbie-friendly i.e.

instead of having a 'macrumours 68020'

change it to 'macrumours Mac II 68020' and 'macrumours Quadra 68040' etc

Agreed, would like the more user friendly change too. Will sound more interesting than some random 68k processor number. PowerPC and beyond ranks might not be needed to be changed much.

Considering not only has Apple never used this, plus not using the same architecture anymore, I highly doubt it.

And I think that using the computers names that used those chips would just make it more confusing.

So 7000 posts and still at the state of 1994 (first PowerPC Mac with a 601 processor released)?

I don't even want to conceive of the number of posts needed to be a quad-core Intel chip... we have enough post-count wh0res as it is...

Thanks for that. I never understood this ranking system.

And a seven year old thread rises from the grave...

Fixed that for you. :)

Interesting thread, and, in common with a number of others who have posted, I had never understood the the reason behind the short numerical span of some of the membership numbering designations. Thanks for enlightening us.

However, my understanding is that while there is a level between 100 and 250 posts, namely 6502, and there is also an additional level between 250 and 500 posts which is denoted by the addition of the letter "a", which indicates that the user is permitted to upload an avatar.

Cheers

Pardon the thread necro, but I remember seeing this thread last month, and I just reached the rare 65832 level myself (screenshot below).

...Yes, it's official: I have no life. :D

I'm glad I got the opportunity to see it actually onscreen in a post. I'm never refreshing this browser window again!

Wait! I'll just take a screenshot as proof of the elusive 65832...

...nah, I'd just be accused of Photoshopping it!

A few days ago, I reached (and flew through) the rare 68010 rank......I debated savouring it for a day or so, but there were posts I wished to make, and so, it came and flashed by rather swiftly.

It's gotta be Photoshopped. I can see the pixels.

The instant I posted the screenshot, I knew I'd get ripped; that's why I said I had "no life". Doesn't matter, really, in the overall scheme of things. And what fun would it be if I simply stopped posting forever to MR, just to prove conclusively to the rest of the world that the title/rank exists? Very little, that's what.

Upward and onward to the 68Ks, I say!

The rather... recursive... appearance of your post above gave me a smidgen of goofy inspiration, as shown below. Hope you don't mind.
