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.

Welcome to 2010. Nintendo just announced the 3DS, Microsoft announced Kinect, Apple just released iPhone 4 and the iPad.


And you care of these thingies? Please stay on topic.


And, well, Amiga demoed the same old OS on some simple PowerPC board (yeah: noticed that the XMOS chip was *missing* from the board that was running AmigaOS ?)


Seems strange that you made assumptions about motherboard prototypes and a 32 bit OS running on a 64 bit machine just thanks to the fact it was barely adapted to X-1000 to test it could run on it.

And if you are barely trying to make some humor then you could just make teletubbies laugh "again" "again".


with slow graphics like Vesa, no 3D acceleration, and of course no resource-tracking, still 32bit, not able to handle the multiple cores,...


OK, now you prove you are totally disinformed about AmigaOS.

Video now is vector and accelerated and based upon Cairo libraries. For the multiple core, we have just starting running on a multiple core for the first time, as a single core OS. let us made it step by step.
