I know that the Pegasos shows "1Ghz machines" coming soon in it's advert, and I very much doubt the AmigaOne team will let them run away with it will they.

Heh, we're just hitting the big one thou and the PC is on what, 3Ghz+ now?!

The PPC is a better processot of course which closes the gap... but I dont think it closes that kind of gap!!!

Hope there is a future for PPC :-/

I was under the impression that perhaps late in the year Eyetech would be releasing a hi-end A1 with a cpu (G4?) at or greater than 1Ghz . I seem to remember that it was on the yahoo amigaone list.

1.3Ghz I think although a Dual 1.3Ghz would be Nice

A dual 1.3 ghz A1 would sure be nice... Oh well we will have to make do with only 800mhz cpu power for the next few months .

Yeah, "only" 800mhz for me for a while anyway.

Dual 1.3Ghz G4's would be great but I can see the bank mamager telling me to wait!

Still the G4 will be awesome compared to the old 68k series!

Yeah the dual CPU option AmigaOne sure is interesting. The only thing is, that doesn't provide quite the power you'd expect. For example, a dual 1.2Ghz AmigaOne wouldn't be equivalent to a 2.4Ghz AmigaOne - it doesn't work that way as far as I'm aware.

One thing that does trouble me though.... does OS4 even have multiprocessor support yet? I've heard mention of plans for it but I'm not sure if they've materialised or if it's a planned future improvement.

Anyone got better info on this? If it doesn't yet support it, can you still use a multiprocessor machine to good effect???

So, this "G3" will also incorporate the Altivec unit? If so, that will be good.

It definitely has a future, and the new G3 looks impressive! It's only gets better and better

I would love to see this one in the AmigaOne. Maybe the new MicroATX AmigaOne will have this one as the core CPU? It's undoubtly the best one for the server market! Motorola and IBM are both doing a fantastic job on the PPC!

Keep it going!
