Some recent rumours suggest that DRAGON 1200 may not be a real thing.

To dispel all doubts Elbox invited two strongest authorities with proven credibility in the Amiga world to conduct personal inspection at the Elbox facilities.

Amazing what you can do with 3D rendering software these days isn't it


I was thinking the same thing. The surface on which the board is looks very suspicious (looks like stone!). And the surface of the board is too shiny. The prints on the board are too perfect too. Also pay attention to the shadows. They don't make sence.

It well can be a 3D rendered picture.

Oh come on. Get a life. That's a picture.

This weeks pet peeve:
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.

if thats a digitally rendered picture then I'm a small fat cuban monkey mloking a rather nice cigar.
It would actually be easier (if not cheaper) to draw that in a CAD proram, have it made and the chips (such as the latice FPGA) soldered on. There is way too much detail fo rthat to be a fake unless they have no intention of everr producing it and spent all their time doing the textures for the traces on the bottom of the CPU card (A note to whoever posted about the RAM slots - the Coldfire chips ahve the northbridge and some southbrdige features onboard as the are a SoC).
Two Interesting things to note:
1) the RAM slots are on the opposite side to the Coldfire chip. This means nothing as it is usually done to save space but there looks to be a lot of spare space on that card allready - I wonder what they are using the other side for (it may be to stop it fowling up the AGP slot)
2) What are the 2 connecters on either side of the CPU card for?
Also, with the shadows, remember it is propped up on the riser card for the trapdoor slot.

The vertical board has the same shadow on the apearrantly horizontal surface as the horizontal board has. There must be something wrong with their camera!

It must be funny for Elbox to have their photographs analyzed like this. Why would they want to "fake" or render a picture of the Dragon? To pretend that something is existing which in fact is not? What is the point in that? What gain does a company get from that?

This seems like a thinly veiled consipiracy by the Blue side to corner the classic Amiga market before the release of the Ack's PV.


This comment is TROLLING.

What's does ACK's PV have to do with the Pegasos? One is an A1200 accelerator card, the other is a full motherboard. Second, If Genesi release the plans of the pegasos on POWER.org, it is their 'ante' as a member. Did you know what
IBM released? Or SUN?

Comments like yours are uncalled for and unwanted on amigaworld!
