Amiga & AROS People, this is an interesting thing to follow first-hand. Hyperion, the company behind AmigaOS4, has been talking about its "Most Ambitious Project" for a while now, but on December 31, they started teasing the Amiga community like crazy. They opened a site called a-eon.com, which is most likely about the MAP.

First post here!

The CPU / RAM configuration looked familiar, and I think I've seen it twice. I can't find pictures to back this up, so some may protest this post but...

The first was a Godson / Loongson 2F motherboard, which is that new super-secret-mystery Chinese CPU. (OK, not too secret, just difficult to acquire.) It could be Godson 2F or 3, but that would mean porting all of the Amiga work from PPC to MIPS. That would be a lot of work, but, it would position Hyperion to become China's new Apple.

The second was a next generation Beagle Board. And, coincidentally, about a month or two ago the Summer Follies Beagle Board web site went down. I think this was an Italian company.


I has been confirmed already that a ppc will be used as main processor. Only teh actual model is not resolved, best bet still is PA 1682 so far (however they managed to get hold of them).
