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.

I think the new X1000 will offer something new for those of us with open minds and an interest in computers for computers sake to try something new. I think like the original Amiga chip set it will take a while for people to create cool software with the X1000. On price, yes it is a little bit on the high side but any smart person knows low scale production costs more.

To start with it will be Amiga fans only but over time when cool new applications appear more will take another look and then hopefully the price may be a bit more affordable.

As for those who say it is dead before it starts, lets just wait and see shall we.
