P.A. Semi was bought by Apple in 2008.. perhaps we'll destroy the competition by using their own product against them! ;)

@Pete

So I doubt it will be P.A. Semi chip :)

What other guesses?

Power7 !

Quote:
The MPC8641D (dual core) is manufactured on a 90 nm SOI based process. 8641D draws less than 25W at 1.5 GHz.


8640 specs (low power version of 8641)
CPU Speeds - 1 GHz/1.25 GHz
Typical Power - 14 Watts/21 Watts

Though it has hte same PCI_Express features, two gen1 (2.5GHz) x8 ports. You can't just hook lanes from different ports together. A switch could help, but it wouldn't improve speed to give you true x16 access from either of the CPU's x8 port.

Regarding the chip near the battery again, compare to this picture

If a match, that's good news for something I'm tinkering with. :)

Darn... I suppose that's one of the problems with having your boss on the same forum.

Well, I think there's much Kaleidosing for me tomorrow anyway. *sigh*

Something tells me there'll be plenty of second-hand SAMs available shortly

When it has Update 1 installed, I honestly can't see much reason to sell the my 667Mhz Sam: It does most things I want of it well enough (excluding software-only issues like AmiCygnix not being hardware accelerated & hence slow scrolling on *any* CPU). And what you'd get selling a Sam may not make a huge dent in the price of this new motherboard (think I'd rather have both Sam AND this new system).

@billt
"8640"
That is the best bet so far as the CPU.

Otherwise I would bet for Titan, because of the giant killer process here:

But I think it was said that it's not it.

and surely, xena and xorro are friends.

I somewhat doubt P.A. Semi is still offering their CPUs for new customers, since they were consumed by Apple, practically. But true, that's also a possibility...


That indeed is a possibility, but only of you're a US military contractor like Raytheon. Big defense companies like that were supposedly able to bully Apple into selling them completed parts, and keep those in production, bot no new design to them, and unless X is a found stock of finished development boards, the likes of us cannot get the things. As far as I'm concerned, PA Semi is right out, disappointingly. I'd have loved to have had a laptop using their chip...

The top right corner is definitely a Mini PCI port


I've been thinking it's a CompactFlash socket.

I don't actually know what the white slot is in this pic but it's similar to the white one we're interested in, and different than the one labelled as mini-PCI

It's also near to what I'm guessing is a parallel ATA/IDE header, which makes sense for a CompactFlash socket.

if you click on "Not yet..."
and type xena into the prompt you get a message that says "You know way too much..."if you click on "Not yet..."


You get the same answer if you type ArticiaS.

Happy New Year effect ?

Anyway, make it a good outcome, and I think most of the people here will at least be pleased.

Although it has been well established that there is a PCI1x slot in line with a xorro slot I am still unclear what a xorro slot is, googling it just came up with "did you mean zorro slot" and nothing helpfull.


It looks like the board has a Xilinx FPGA chip. That chip isn't as useful if you cannot conect external things to it. Without connections you might be able to do things like swappable hardware codecs, coprocessors (I myself like the idea of implementing Altivec in an FPGA for use as an external implementation comparable to 68882 FPU, if overhead doesn't kill the idea), but most industrial types will want to connect external gizmos like motors, sensors, etc. to something, and this Xorro slot must be the pathway to that. They made it a handly slot inline with a rear panel to allow that pathway to be a plugin card shaped thing, with headers, BNC connectors, line driver chips, or anythgin else yoy can interface to the FPGA. We the Amiga community could fashion a VGA/DVIconnector fro Natami's or Minimig's graphics chips or whatever we want. Being inline with a PCI-Express slot is probably more a physical convenience than a practical connection, but with some FPGAs capable of PCI-Express, SATA, etc. who knows.

All my opinion.

The biting normally begins when specifications have been published..... so keep the game going

No, it is the "Law of attraction", send out positive vibes, you get positive vibes back to you, send out negativity, you get negativity back.

It is like a boomerang of what you send out/want in life (no, it does not mean you will get a Ferrari if you send out those vibes, that kind of "Law of attraction" only works on the Oprah show ;) ).

@billt Any modern computer that cannot equip a latest generation Graphic card (which remember will also be used for standard calculations from now on, thanks to OpenCL) is for the ladies...


Huh? What about a laptop would prevent connecting a modern laptop graphics card? I of course want as much performance in my laptop as possible. An MXM3 slot would of course be somewhat required...

I guess the best bet for an "Amiga laptop" will be a Powerbook driven by MorphOS.


I don't want MorphOS though. A MOS laptop does ntohing to satisfy my desire for an OS4 laptop, perhaps I should say that instead of Amiga laptop from now on. Don't argue with why I want which OS, just accept that this is what I myself have chosen to want. You're free to enjoy your MOS on PowerBook whenever that happens.

No you don't. For xena you get "you know way too much". For ArticiaS, you get the bog standard response.
