@wawa

I wonder; if there is anyone who has promised to eat any socks or shoes, somewhere on this forum, there is always some naysayers around, maybe we need help from number6.

Technically, it's not new accelerator card, so if some one did say that a new PPC calculator will never happen they are safe for now. because sonnet ppc accelerators where made for Classic Mac computers.

Actually, I thought it was a new one, when you first posted the link

I have no idea if you have in the past, note I never accused you of it.

Thanks for the link. Awesome if it happens but they are an old card now and hard to find.

I think its what Elbox were going to use as the Shark card, isn't it?

I'm not sure what you want to know, but several of us posted about the old Sonnet stock here:

new PPC cards for classic Amiga

Maybe. But it is not very reasonable to build SMP system this way :P.

No. These cards use slow CPU and (more importantly) slow RAM and are connected by slow PCI. If you want SMP CPU card for AmigaOne (XE, Micro), you should design new MegArray CPU board.

Remove the "new" and it's still true.

A CPU on PCI can never have full access to the Amiga in the same way that the CPUs on Phase5 cards can.

While it MIGHT be possible to get Warp running (PowerUP would probraly be easier) it won't be possible to run OS4,MorphOS or Linux on it.

Well actually you would have to 2 ways to do it:

1) make sure everything you need (GFX,sound,HD,keyboard) is on PCI, but than you could just skip the mediator and Axx00 and just plug the Sonnet in a passive PCI-backplane

2) run a helper-OS on the 68k-CPU sending/receiving all things Amiga to and from PCI
