Hardware News   Hardware News : Troika NG Progress Report
   posted by Troika on 26-May-2006 2:36:43 (27891 reads)
We thought a progress report was in order as we have some very good news. After much development we are happy to report that version 1.4 of Amy'05 is nearly complete. Our next progress report will contain lots of information about Amy, along with the much awaited Photo's!

For many of the first adopters of Eyetech Amiga One models, their needs and wants have grown past the specifications of the machines they are currently using and they wish to upgrade to a more modern motherboard design.


Our original intent with project “Prometheus” was to design and build several low cost lines of motherboards, built on proven technology. The Amy’05 design would be followed by a more powerful design. When we designed Amy’05 we did not envisage the changes that have taken place in the Power PC market, most notable, Apple's shift from PowerPC to Intel that has presented both problems as well as opportunities for Troika.

While developing Amy’05 we have been investigating several good opportunities for the existing Amiga user base. We have found others with similar business interests to ours, from which we were able to form new alliances which has allowed us to begin due diligence procedures for purchasing a design of a higher end motherboard. Acquiring the rights to this motherboard will allow us to bring a higher end board to market far quicker than if we were to design one from the ground up. Also, by forming new alliances we will be able to bring the per unit cost of this motherboard down - a saving that we wish to pass on to you.

We would like to show you photographs of our higher end motherboard but our NDA does not permit this. However, we are able to show you pictures that have been cropped to conceal the board’s identity.

Provided we are able to do this, we plan on offering this higher end motherboard as a compliment to our first line of Amy motherboards.

We have been down this road before, with announcements based on assurances from third parties who have failed to deliver. Amy’05 has encountered problems but they are all in the past.

Between now and then we shall post regular progress reports, instead of intermittent press releases and promises.

Motherboard with Tsi-109 & 7448 .

Our Sound system.

WRT: " Is version 1.4 "nearly complete" because of the above decision, or in spite of it?"

Nevermind, thanks, that makes sense now.

I think all good amigans know that the Amiga market was REALLY low/tiniy/small/"bad", but we cant go on in that way...
Every day that pass without any HW to buy was a BAD day...definitely...

Hmm, so then, maybe you might tell us who Troika is?

Ian Stedman, "Josh_B" (whoever that is?), and...?

Unfortunately, there is no imprint, contact address, company information, staff list, (...), on their website - which I find a bit strange since they always (at least) pretend to be a company.

could it be based on this ?


My hope is that the Amiga community will act like adults, and show some manners.

Troika NG doesn't deal with this firm.

If you do a google with "7448 Tsi-109", you get lots of interesting stuff to read, nice.


Yes, the 7448 & Tsi-109 combo is real news, and we cut about a year off developing a new motherboard.

Thanks for the progress reports.

Are you telling me that it's pathetic to say that we have Elbox to thank for still having
a "community" that works? For still having Classic Amiga hardware that works?
For still having any Amiga hardware?..

Name one company (hardware- or software-wise) that has done more for the Amiga-
community in the last 10 years than Elbox.

you said:

Newsflash!
Troika and ACK Controls are the same guy!

Both announced something lowend, then went silent. After a year they announced they
were working on two boards, the original and one highend.

They have to be the same person. Noone in their right minds would work on two boards
at the same time in this community!

-------

.. now put 2 and 2 together and you will get 4.

What doesn't work? The inflammatory remark sure works, look at all the whingers/naysayers/knockers jumping up and down in their cages. It's almost as though someone unseen pokes them from behind every time good news threatens.

Now that's rich coming from you. If you'd posted just as much criticism about Genesi and their "mishaps" instead of defending them at every opportunity get, then maybe there would have been some kind of credibility to what you just wrote.

Positive as always... Atleast acknowledge the fact that we are being given information about their progress, something that I for one consider as something positive.
