hardware OS4   hardware OS4 : X1000 Status Update
   posted by MaximvsPayne on 7-Jun-2011 20:31:13 (11347 reads)
London, 7th June 2011

A-EON Technology is pleased to announce that following an extensive test programme Varisys are about to commence manufacturing the full complement of
Nemo 2 motherboards for the AmigaOne X1000 Beta Test Team. As part of the pre-qualification process, Varisys have ported the PowerPC version of Debian
Squeeze to demonstrate that all onboard components and subsystems are working as expected. The AmigaOS4 developers have also been busy porting the latest
version of AmigaOS4.1.x



Cool Running

The energy efficiency of the PA Semi CPU was fully demonstrated during the testing phase. A thermal imaging camera was used to measure the CPU and board
temperatures while running Debian Squeeze in dual-core under full load conditions. A maximum CPU/Heatsink/Fan assembly temperature of 31.1C was recorded while playing a DVD on a software rendered 1920x1200 full screen display. With the CPU fan disconnected the temperature rose to meagre 34.6C with a CPU core temperature of 61C.

AmigaOne X1000 Update Article

We are also pleased to announce that the next issue of "Amiga Future" magazine will contain a Nemo 2 update article. Issue 91 (July/August) should be released in early July and can be ordered from the "Amiga Future" website or your local Amiga reseller.

Hmm... is there any particular reason why Varisys was not contracted to port OS4?

So, *ahem*, where is the evidence?

How do we know this isn't just a press release (hot air)?

Because Varisys is a h/w company, they use linux for testing. They don't have a clue about OS4. Besides, why would Hyperion give OS4 away?

The bds were sent to Hyperion to verify OS4 installed & ran after Varisys verified the h/w.

What evidence would that be?

Lets face it, for those who never see/own an x1000, it will always be vapor.

Its not true! Trevor is bankrupt! He was seen bareknuckle fighting with Ben
Hermans! A-Eon never give progress updates! The X1000 is actually a spectrum! Waah waah waah waah!




(Nice work Trevor & Varisys, btw :) )

They already ported Linux and know HW better than anyone else.

That is what documentation is for. Obviously it has to be written but longer A-eon waits smaller their profit margin will be.

Varisys guys know the HW so I was just wondering. Making new HW is not cheap.

Err? It does not mean subcontractor would ever have any rights to OS4 source code.

The very obvious fact: They don't know the OS4 code and therefore it would take them at least 3 times longer to do it than for Hyperion who knows the code inside-out by now.

Should there really be more than a day of work to do this? I mean OS4 was already demonstrated on an X1000 beta board last year..?

Edit: Oh, and Good News! Hope it won't be another eternity until we, the public, can buy it now... My A1-XE starts to feel slow.

given that there was no news about os4 on this hw since a year it makes me wonder...

I doubt. Because there is HAL you dont have to know the code inside out. It is not an embedded project where SW is tightly integrated for one target platform...

Whatever, it is an academic discussion anyway... some companies prefer outsource everything, some companies nothing.

So is mine. Even for simple things. Some people say you don't need fast hardware for AmigaOS but today that's not true anymore because we make use of other software technology that's slow and needs a hefty CPU.

For example. Reading a PDF. I downloaded a simple B&W manual for a router. OS4 takes ages to render a page. At least a second. Am I using my A1200/030 with APDF? No.

Web browsing. Apart from flash (which may make it better speedwise) simple browsing takes a lot of CPU power now days wih scripts and fancy gfx everywhere. That needs power.

Emailing. Not much more then text editing really. But YAM is dog slow now. I enter a name or address and YAM thinks about it for a few seconds before guessing. Of course this is YAM storing more data as time goes on. The old problem that affected Windows is now affecting us. Of course if YAM only recorded who I emailed and not the spam I get it would be faster but that's another story.

My point is, unfortuately, we need a Ghz powerful computer these days just to do the simple things.
