Based on these assumptions, I would say that the best way to guess at the power of the Raspberry Pi 4 is to look at the existing Broadcom SoCs with VideoCore 5 GPUs and either consider if that SoC would be a good choice, or consider if it would be a good choice with a few tweaks.

I think this is probably right. I can't see them moving away from VideoCore, considering the improvements made to the open-source driver in the past couple of years. The BCM7271 is implemented using a 28 nm process, so that meets Upton's minimum requirement in that area. It seems like this might be the baseline they fall back to if they can't find anything better.

The 68k JIT for ARM that Michal Schulz is working on can potentially also turn any Raspberry Pi into an ARM equivalent of Amithlon.

@all

I want to remember you also MS Windows 10 IoT runs on RPi3

How to install Windows IoT on Rpi3

With ARM you can have endianless ram access, builtin FPU, Vector unit, GPU, ISP, DSP and any other type coprocessor you want realize.
All the job is already done, it's a modern common use cpu with high frequencies and really cheap.

So why not AmigaOS on ARM?

@Fl@sh

What does "endianless ram access" mean?

@kolla

Oh Yes! What I mean is:
ARM can read/write to memory in both bigendian and littleendian modes, while in its inside it's always littleendian.

This feature could help porting AmigaOS.

It is exactly for hobby, not for real work. Those ppls who expect from x5000/x1000 whatever to be PC replacements, was very fast dissapointed.

Today you should take anything Amiga (including its NG incarnations) with a huge pinch of salt. It is a hobby computer, and while it's perfectly good at that, it would be naive to expect it can replace your PC or Mac for daily work.


I completely agree with @kas1e and @Trixie. It's an Amiga. Not a PC.

If you need those things an RPi will provide then use Virtual Network Computing (VNC). It works, it's low cost, it runs several OS's, uses minimal power, and it's controllable with an Amiga.

Now lets get back to doing Amiga things, human things, fun stuff. Maybe A-EON should include a RPi and the VNC programs with the X5000 and A1222. It works without bunging up the Amiga.
