Is this the most important part of the update: "Articia Sa engineering samples are expected to be available in Q3, 2003."?

Anyone noticed any change in the PDF files?

Have you seen the chipset page ... the chips under development (Articia MP Family & Magicia Family) sounds lovely

There are none.

All that's happend is that they've postponed the release of
the Sa and P models again, for the last time no doubt.

No, that's not true - according to the internet wayback machine, that date (Q3 2003) has been there since April 10, 2002 (look at the bottom of the page).

The dates have changed from (Q2, 2003) to (Q3, 2003) though. You can still find discussion within our forums with regard to that date.

But as we are already in Q3 this update is a tad overdue.

On the Sa news page.

Its spelt ..... "TOTAL"

Shouldn't affect amigas in the near future too much - IIRC both the AmigaOne Rev2 and the AmigaOne Lite are going to use the Articia S. I didn't see anything in the glossies about either the Sa or P being pin-compatible with the S, so there won't be any quick updates of the new motherboards to support the new chips (ie fairly extensive design work is needed, a couple of chip-to-chip wires aren't going to do it). Since a new motherboard usually takes a few months to go from concept to prototype, I'd estimate that we'll only see motherboards based on those chips sometime late next year, so a production slip of a month or two at this stage shouldn't be a huge deal.

From Ben's Penel speach (after mentioning the A1-lite specs such as
AGP 2x...)

>It seems like there's new revisions of the A1 motherboard lined up,
>I can't speak of the actual timeline that's for Allan Redhouse to...
>and MAI to discuss. But the technologie is, like, SATA, Gigabit
>ethernet, USB 2.0, DDR memmory support and AGP times four, that's
>just around the corner.

Does the S have som hidden features that I'm not
aware of?
Or is there a new model revision lined up
before the suposed chipset change that I've not heard of?

From Mai's pages:

Quote:
Articia Sa is a highly-integrated PowerPC companion chipset. Harnessing the industry-leading CPU bus speed of 166 MHz, the cutting-edge 333 MHz DDR SDRAM, the stunning graphic capability from AGP4X, and the extended data throughput of 64-bit PCI, the multi-missioned Articia Sa brings down system cost while offering phenomenal performance.


It's good to know that they have plans lined up for the future (in this case, it seems like an Articia Sa version of the A1), but as I said, expect these to show up in six to twelve months, especially if the engineering samples of the chips aren't out yet. Mind you, if Mai weren't taking Alan for a ride and they really do have 20 guys working on these boards, maybe a December/January release is possible... but I'd like to know what these guys know that I don't. It just seems odd to me to put so much weight behind a technology that's not been too popular in recent past, especially in a cutthroat business like motherboards

I wouldnt worry about this - technology races on.. Put it this way, most of the Macs we order in work have ceased being manufactured by the time they get to retail The cases may be the same, but the insides have been tweaked, fiddled with - altered... Newer modles come out. Even now there are better machines being built that wont be available in the shops for a few months. Its just the way it goes.
