Amiga & AROS The fabled Amiga X1000 has been spotted in the wild, in the homeliest of places--Station X, a.k.a Bletchley Park. "The AmigaOne X1000 is a custom dual core PowerPC board with plenty of modern ports and I/O interfaces. It runs AmigaOS 4, and is supported by Hyperion, a partner in the project. The most interesting bit, though, is the use of an 500Mhz XCore co-processor, which the X1000's hardware designer describes as a descendant of the transputer - once the great hope of British silicon." With thanks to Jason McGint, 'Richard' and Pascal Papara for submissions.

They are announced HPC "Knights Ferry" part at International Supercomputing Conference. They intended to ship devkits in 2q 2010. So hardware should be fine.

Yes, but how much are those going to cost? I don't the problem was actually producing the hardware, but producing it at a reasonable cost to be used as a GPU in computers (~$100).
