Amiga & AROS

A-EON Technology Ltd is pleased to announce that Tabor, a new powerful, low cost, entry level PowerPC motherboard, which forms part of our A1200 series, is about to undergo beta testing.

As part of our drive to create more powerful lower cost, entry level hardware and expand the Next-Generation user base we commissioned Ultra Varisys to create a new PowerPC motherboard. The result is Tabor, a 170 mm x 170 mm mother-board based on a Freescale QorIQ P1022 32-bit e500v2 dual-core PowerPC processor running at 1.2 GHz. Prototypes have already been shipped to key developers and members of A-EON Technology’s Core Linux support team and, as a result, several Linux distributions are already up and running on the Tabor board. Working in cooperation with ACube srl, a beta test programme is about to commence, which is already over-subscribed.

Sounds like nice hardware, and it's great the Amiga community, even after all these years, can still buy new machines for AmigaOS 4.

This is what OpenCL is for. A gfx card with proper opencl drivers can do it.

For sound , openal can be accelerated with opencl
For gfx , 3d can be accelerated with opencl
Even spreadsheet calculation can be accelerated with opencl.

For the occasional hello world fpu program, you can live with the weak cpu.

But of course , rewrites are necessary. However, this rewrite is inevitable.
