Jesus F. Christ,

what's the point of this obnoxious banter on instruction cycles, picoseconds, vperm, vcpu, xrks, xwerlwlwlslfs and on and on and on,

when ultimately the thing will be an underpowered, overpriced black brick that looks like a Toshiba notebook from the mid 90s?


To claim that it's underpowered you have to discuss about performance, which is what we were doing.

Ok - but you endlessly, painstakingly argue about tiny performance details with barely perceivable effects on the end user - ignoring that no matter what, you are discussing a dead platform that would remain under powered even if you mounted it on a space rocket.

Two doctors quarreling over a corpse arguing on single cells with a microscope. Ok docs, great science there, but the guy is dead stiff anyway so what's the point.

Funny thing, this notebook, if it ever comes out, will be faster than X5000/40. Really bad timing by A-eon to have chosen the e5500 core before e6500 was available in quantity.



Sounds like a great reason for it to support Amiga OS4! Man, I'd love a notebook Amiga with a speed something close to an X1000.....that would be awesome.

@resle

Noone is forcing you to follow discussions you're not interested in. At least I hope, for your sake, that noone is actually forcing you to read all these posts that don't interest you. In a thread with a topic that doesn't interest you.

Using "voltage" instead of "potential", which leads to inventing new words like "amperage" instead of "current" (I, measured in A) or possible "charge" (amperehours, Ah or Coulomb, C). Sometimes I don't even know what people mean.

It's been over 7 years but they now have everything ready to produce and test the prototype boards.

@amigagr

My work laptop I got in 2015 (it was not new), PC see stores right now in 2022 is similar to the specs, yes sure gotten more efficient, but beyond that, we kind hit a accepted speed, where adding more speed does do a lot, we are at stagnation, when it comes to CPU, RAM, HD.

Anyhow, I think now right time to get laptop, as windows 11 needs a spy chip, you get windows 10 laptop at dumping / discount prices.

@NutsAboutAmiga truth is i would like the idea of a ppc laptop running amigaos.
i have a power book from 2005 but the macos is outdated and the morphos
doesn't drive me crazy, so I just have it completely useless.

Amazing perseverance! It's a shame it may take another 7 years to have AmigaOS/System 54 ported to it if ever!

It needs no "spy" chip, rather a TPM module (which is something completely different).
