Amiga & AROS How about we end this weekend on a happy note? Something we can all agree on is a good thing, so that we can all be happy and frolic and hand out hugs and kisses? I've got a video for you guys and girls. A production video of how a certain motherboard is being assembled. However, this is no ordinary board. This is the rev. 2.1 versions of the A-eon AmigaOne X1000 - which will be shipped out to beta testers next week.

To me they seem to be making the same mistake as Atari did. IE: Only one co-processor on the motherboard.

A 16-CPU or more Transputer system could do things no other machine could do at that time. A single one was no better than any other high end CPU available then.

Same for the co-processor here in this Amiga, not that it has to come with 16 CPUs, just have the sockets on the motherboard or deliver a shipping daughter-board that will supports a large number of additional co-processors and maybe this Amiga will be worth looking at. But as it stands, what can it do that you can't do on a modern day quad/octal core machine? I am not just meaning Intel, multi-core ARM and MIPS CPUs are available today.

The chip Amiga wants to use needs to be available in large arrays to out-perform what is already available. When will they deliver such machines?
