What benchmarks did they run? It would be nice if we got numbers on something we all have a feel for, eg a Quake timedemo.

I have no idea. I wasn't there

Linux already run on it since they used it to test the performance against microA1, bytheway the 533MHz version already beat it.


Source for that statement?

Because all the benchmarks I could find indicate that (a) clock for clock, the 440EP is slower than the 750GX, and (b) the 440 suffers badly compared to the 750 when it overflows L1 cache. And memory bandwidth isn't going to be any better than on the A1, either --- being DDR at best makes up for the half-width memory bus.

But regardless of actual performance --- it would be good to know that the actual Sam board has booted Linux and worked reliably. Not the AMCC 440EP evaluation board (which Sam is undoubtedly based on, but which is still a different board) --- *that one* comes with Linux preinstalled.

Some more news bits from the Samantha presentation

- the board has been developed entirely in Italy, the three italian Amiga dealers behind the project have all the board's schematics.

- when asked about the OS4 licence status, it has been said that the talks with Amiga inc. are proceeding well

- the first batch of boards will be likely destined to Linux developers, rather than Amiga customers

- there are two other projects running alongside Samantha: Moana is a higher specced motherboard. At the moment it seems that they're waiting for some sort of clearance, but they couldn't reveal more details (like if it's related to the OS4 licencing). Another project, called "Bridgette", is an even smaller version of Samantha.

- the three dealers are going to form a company together in order to manage the marketing of the board(s)

Disclaimer: these news are not official, I'm not part of the team behind Samantha, so there might be some errors in my news.

I'll post more news if I remember anything more ^^

@all of you patiently waiting for this

*Information concerning Pianeta Amiga*

1st:This certainly deserves it's own thread, but we already have other info
about Pianeta Amiga in this thread. Therefore, I post this here in hope this
helps keep all on-topic information concerning Pianeta Amiga in one place.

A big thank you to @Varthall for consolidating these bits of information and
relaying them to me.

A tremendous amount of thanks to all of you involved in putting together this
information so soon after the Pianeta Amiga show. It must have been a lot of
work to do this, and we appreciate it greatly!

Please correct me if I leave anyone out of the credits. These are not written
in my native language, and I may miss someone.

Lecta (Stefano Guidetti):considering everything else you have been involved in,
wow! How did you find the time?
http://lecta.altervista.org

Amikit (Jan Zahurancik):If others were involved with this, please have them
post so we can give them a round of applause.
http://amiga.probers.info/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1297&Itemid=108
Added:Thanks also to Prober!

Fabio Ferriccioli: Simply a "stunningly beautiful" presentation.
http://www.quantum-leap.it/default_frame.asp?id=163

I am extremely impressed with what you have all done here. Thanks a million!

Since it's Italians working on a next-gen Amiga, is their company going to be called Triumvirate?

Sadly, they won't say anything more, I guess it's still early to talk about it.

I'd suggest Troika Reloaded

/Bad joking on my country reputation - mode on - /

As a matter of italian mafia we could call them "The Triad"...

Uhm...

No... Sounds not good. Triads are the chinese mafia...

But... sure I have heard elsewhere about this triads regarding Samantha team...
