it is a camerashot of my a600, i'll do up a little video later when i get a chance, the RTG is still a WIP so not there yet. Workbench works pretty good though :)

@kipper2k
Can you test Shapeshifter/Fusion with RTG Picasso96 driver?
It should run pretty smooth.

I hope they make an A1200 version this next year and optionally use a faster FPGA.

RTG testing is going on right now, trying to set up all the modes. More videos will be forthcoming :)

Good to see mac emulation running, does Shapeshifter work as well? Would be nice to see some benchmarking, akin to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ug4_yh3Q288

I see there is a kickstart 3.9 boot screen shot on the apollo site, well.. that is cool, but, and I am repeating myself a lot now, what is interesting to see, are the true 020+ components of OS3.9 working correctly - that is, Reaction based applications, such as all the prefs programs.

A question on "Super AGA" - is it really "Super AGA", or is it just a "dumb" frame buffer on the HDMI? I would expect "Super AGA" to be AGA compatible, and not to rely on RTG package such as P96 for 8bit plane modes.

I have now dug out my two A600 systems, and one of them may get a Vampire2, then I could do all the tests myself :p

@kolla: actually it seems to be RTG/Picasso96 only. Which makes sense, since there's already a lot of support for RTG graphic cards for the Amiga o.s..

And IBM didn't want to build faster 970MPs (AKA G5) cpus.

I have heard this all before.

But outside of IBM's Power designs, no one else has really ever been able to challenge Intel. (except maybe AMD during Intel's Netburst period - but that is still X86).

Fact,, compare a 2.7 GHz G5 to a Xeon from the same period and the G5 will outclass its performance.

RISC WAS a good idea, one that still lives on in ARM.

As to the 68K, that don't scale.

But it did outclass Intel in its time.


BTW - I'll butt out of this one (at least for awhile - see you in 'two weeks'). Gunnar might think I don't like him anymore (when its more like 'Is the f'ing thing finished yet?')


Intel "Core 2" Xeon arrive around June 2006.

Modern X86 CPUs includes RISC cores (fix instruction length) and hardware accelerated X86 (variable instruction length) translators.

Being RISC doesn't automatically equal good i.e. it depends on the implementation.

bkilian: Everyone talks about this 100GFLOPS, but all I've ever said is that the entire 360 CPU would not be able to run Shape at 100%. Remember that the 360 CPU gets, on average, an IPC of 0.2. So while the chip is _technically_ 100GFlops, you will never see that in real running code. Jaguar cores have an IPC of close to 1. A single jaguar core could almost outperform the entire 360 CPU on production code.

nVidia's Project Denver (that you find in some Tegra's SoCs) have 7-issues cores.

One can't directly compare complex instruction set to reduce instruction set.

Higher code density (CISC) uses less instruction issue slots than less code density (RISC).

Then it makes zero sense to confuse people by calling it "Super AGA", when it really is just a framebuffer for P96. "Super AGA" would be providing AGA compatibility, and beyond. Super AGA would be allowing super fast high resolution HAM8 modes, for Deluxe Paint for example.

Well we all know that the ApolloCore and other components
are in development stage. We all should be glad for now
CGFX/P96 Software is working already. I think sooner or later
we will see that "SuperAGA" will deserve its name.

What do you mean by SuperAGA? Why does it have to do with the Apollo / Vampire?
