@AmigaKit

So how was it? Can you confirm that it is going to be possible to buy only a chassis or not? Will it contain a PSU or not? It is important to me as I have a standing offer to buy a PSU. If one comes with the chassis, if it is possible to buy one, I will not take the offer.

No! The PSU might be sold then.

@Niolator

Sorry in advance, I may have misunderstood you: are you asking to buy the case for the X5000 with a PSU and no motherboard or other components?

For once and for all:

SimplePPC is indeed Timothy De Groote, director at Hyperion Entertainment.


How do they know you're really Evert Carton?

it has been handled and proven well enough i think.
what i wonder is, why not identify yourself straight away and prevernt misunderstandings rather than leave it to vague hints and argument this forum is known for. is this the strategy everyone enjoys?

No, I am asking to buy a chassis with motherboard. I have the rest of the components (except for a PSU if it is not already in the chassis).

@Niolator

If they sell the motherboards separately, you could just buy a psu.
I doubt the X5000 mb has very high power requirements.
Something in the 500-650 watt range ought to be more than adequate.
You will also need a supported video card.
AND, if any of the onboard devices aren't working when shipped, you'd need similar cards as those shipped with the first X5000s (note - that might not happen, it did with the X1000).

@all

Having found out I was wrong about an assumption I posted, I need to make a retraction (or face being hounded for awhile by a friend in Germany).

The release of MorphOS 3.10 is in no way being held up by the delay in the release of the X5000. According to key developers, its just not ready yet.

So....I'm not going to rush either process, besides I want the 040 model and it comes second.
I guess I can wait for my last PPC system.

My apologies to all (even Hyperion).

Thanks for the advice. The PSU I am considering buying has 650 Watts. That should do for mid-range cards in Crossfire.

That should be fine.
I have a 650 running a dual Xeon system, although it only has one Radeon 6850.

@Niolator

You have to choose your psu mainly keeping in mind which gfx you'll install in the X5000.
Gfx Is the critical component

I was of course hoping for that heavier graphical applications will emerge or heavy 3D games.

It's no secret that i am a manager at Hyperion , but i am also an Amiga user at hart, and the things i write should be seen as a fellow Amiga User talking to another fellow Amiga User.

Not everything i write is 'official', so i won't be putting my 'Director name' on the bottom of each text.

If however someone wants to add a 'badge' or something. Fine :)

Kind Regards,

Timothy

@AmigaBlitter

And ...you just asked for an official statement, which Tim suggested he wasn't here for.
Be glad someone feels like commenting, I'd be reluctant to in his place.
Y'all can be a rude bunch 'o mofos.

Word

@AmigaBlitter

I thread on Amigaworld is hardly the right place for official statements. Look for it in the news section.

edit: Though I would really like to know things about AmigaOS 4.2 too. Just look at my avatar.

@Niolator

I know negativity is frowned on here, but the goals for 4.2 are pretty advanced.
And Hyperion is a business, what makes you think they have made enough money in this limited market to finance the development of 4.2?
The Friedens don't work for free.

This might be one area where I'd tend to defend the company.
Development costs money.
I'm sure Aeon is paying for the ports to their platforms, but how much does Hyperion have available to develop 4.2 (btw - I personally think this ought to be called 5.0 - its that big a step)?
