Yeah, that thought crossed my mind. Especially, if you consider, that Hyperion was actually one of the Titan gods. :) And Eon also means Age. So there's the the Golden Age, which the Titans ruled in...

Obviously not!

However, at the end of the day it'll look like Firefox, act like Firefox, have the same functionality as Firefox, have a logo similair to Firefox (presumably), so for all intents and purposes it'll be Firefox

I can't really help that I'm thinking "why don't they go with mainstream hardware if this now is the new beginning"... =/ Why complicate it so much. If they want some proprietary properties left then walk the apple route and use standard HW and put it together in a shiny, cute and fancy package. It opens up soooo many more doors.

I'm sorry. I love that there's a new beginning and so but from what we have guessed and put together it already feels a bit old? SATA3, USB3 and FW1600 is already here so a new system should have something like that? =/ This just feels like new old hardware to me. =/

Sorry for bringing a bit of negativity to the table. But that's just how I feel.

Titan was probably too recently announced to have been used anyway.

Not possible. Not enough cores, memory controllers or PCI-Express lanes.

And not ambitious enough IMO.

Has anyone mentioned that the Ethernet port seems to be using a RealTek PHY?

Hey...what the ...?

The ACK board specs

Say it ain't so!!
It almost sounds the same.

* RoHS compliant ATX form factor.
* Four (4) DDR2 DIMM slots.
* One (1) PCI Express x16 slot for high performance graphics cards.
* One (1) PCI Express x2 slot for high performance I/O cards.
* One (1) PCI Express x1 slot for standard I/O cards.
* One (1) PCI 32 bit slot for legacy cards.
* Six (6) USB 2.0 ports.
* Two (2) Gb Ethernet ports.
* Two (2) UART ports for serial connectivity and debug.
* One 8Mb Flash EEPROM containing U-Boot firmware.

Is that mounting holes for a cooler, or for a cpu board?

If for a cpu board, could it be upgradeable for various cpu's?




CPU seems to be onboard, so the holes should be for the cooler??

@BigBentheAussie
Well, 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... And it might be even possible to get a few thousand of those chips, to build such a small volume computer as this aims to be. However, i find somewhat "unsmart" to build a new platform on a dead-end CPU.

@BigBentheAussie

I keep thinking the same but I ruled this chip out long ago because it is dead as a parrot. Or so I thought.

With the Apple buyout/shutdown I wouldn't expect to see any PA6T chips, ever. Why would Apple let something like this out in the wild? It could come back to bite them one day. For example, in this exact scenario we are puzzling over...

Cheers!

@mihcael

We probably need support for a while after initial batches... iron out issues and such. So I'd prefere that he'd hold out a little longer if he's involved.

Just me being selfish I know.

Well it looks as though they are doing the best of all worlds. Keeping certain things mainstream but adding some differences here and there to bring about advantages and unique selling points.

The point is if you made it all mainstream it would be very dull and boring and no-one would bother. If you went down the Apple route of giving in totally to the PC and just doing the OS whilst adding Apple tax for silly cases and boxes then you would have a Mac.

The Amiga is something different and Hyperion were right all along to stick to PowerPC and create a unique and different product. That uniqueness won't kill it but make it stronger. It will need the uniqueness in order to stand out from the crowd.
