Announcement   Announcement : Hyperion announces "strategic" partnership with A-EON
   posted by Petah on 20-Feb-2010 19:40:58 (11433 reads)
In a somewhat surprising announcement on its homepage, AmigaOS developer Hyperion Entertainment has just announced a "strategic" partnership with hardware manufacturer A-EON Technology. A short communiqué states that the forthcoming AmigaOne X1000 platform will sport a custom chipset with "unparalleled flexibility and scalability" capable of running AmigaOS 4.1, currently undergoing further development.

Acube is a partner so i dont think its any difference. Acube has os4.x and lowend boards and A-EON has highend boards.

yes, but you know that new toy the old toy is forget, and I don't like that this situation we have with ACube we need to both companies with their new hardwares for Amiga OS, MorphoOS, AROS or Linux.

hm..

Better late then newer??


i think a few months is like a WERRY quick quickey in the amiga world

remember the x1000 and a-eon was not heard of until
we crossed over to the year 2010

so i think this one might deliver on theyr promises
wel its not promise but they do mention
that we wont hawe to wait until summer

so i guess that is some kind of a deadline (i hope)

Not sure why this is a 'surprising' announcement. It simply makes official what we already knew.

Also - as has been said time and time again - ACube have nothing to fear they will be looking after the lower cost end of the market and A-Eon is doing the cutting edge stuff to hopefully drive things forward.

But still no update on a-eon.com...
Is it so hard to set up a preliminary website?

@Zylesea:
and guess what. people will say ''Not sure why this is a 'surprising' announcement. It simply makes official what we already knew.''

@-Sam-: it's not personal against you, exactly this is the feeling around, after all the ''vapor, vapor'' claims...

Vaporware today, too expensive tomorrow, the writing's on the wall...

Personally, I think there's a movement to dis-credit the project in hopes that it will fail.

Hyperion have already made it clear that this wont affect their relationship with acube. Acube makes hardware for the lower end market while a-eon concentrates on the higher end.

I hope this will make AmigaOs and MorphOs use the same hardware so people can support this large step for the amiga comunity. no software, big hardware.. but then no future amiga.. i think this will be fun again folks... now we must get back some off the old software programmers that makes pc software to amiga again.. they must have some love left for the amiga..make ports of your software, and guys.. make som more amiga ppc demoes..

I've always been an optimist, but it seems there are more pessimists here then optimists at this point in time.
