software Classic   software Classic : Roadshow now also available as a CD version
   posted by AndreasM on 3-Dec-2017 8:51:55 (1654 reads)
As more and more users ask for it, we have decided to publish a CD-Version (DVD Box) of Roadshow.

Roadshow will be available in two versions in our online shop:

- Download version
- CD, including download version

For all users who have already purchased the download version of Roadshow, there is the option to purchase an upgrade to the CD version for Euro 4.90 plus shipping costs in our online shop.
Important! The purchase of the CD must be done via the same account in our online shop as the purchase of the download version.
If you have any questions, please send us an email in advance.




about Roadshow

Roadshow is an Amiga TCP/IP stack allows you to connect to the Internet, access your e-mail, web pages, chat, etc. It can also help you access and exchange files within your local home network.
Roadshow is one of the fastest, if not the fastest Amiga TCP/IP stack. In sustained data transmission tests, Roadshow was able to receive 997 KBytes/s (tested on an Amiga 3000T, using 40 MHz 68040 WarpEngine CPU card and an Ariadne Ethernet card).

The download version of Roadshow is fine for me but is nice to offer a hard copy.

Roadshow is my favorite TCP/IP Stack for the Amiga. It's faster than Miami and easier to set up than Ami-TCP.

+1, since Roadshow came along I actually enjoy browsing Amiga forums with my Amiga 4000

Thank you.

I only tried it on a PCMCIA card, it was good. Is it capeable of doing more then a few MB/sec with e.g. a Xsurf 100 ?

No, it is not. The reason is in that the X-Surf 100 cannot transfer data to and from the Amiga memory without the help of the Amiga CPU. Whenever your Amiga receives or sends data from/to the network, that data has to be copied from/to the X-Surf 100 buffer to/from the Amiga memory.

The higher the transmission rate, the more work the CPU has to do just to shuffle the data around. Just moving the data around is not enough, something useful has to happen with that data, too (e.g. render a web page, store a file on disk). There is a "sweet spot" which maximizes data transmission rate and at the same time does something useful with the data, but it's a "bittersweet spot" because the Amiga cannot process the data as fast as it arrives.

In my tests the X-Surf 100 maxed out at 1.7 Megabytes per second and at 96% CPU load. Doing something useful with that data, instead of just running a benchmark, will cause the throughput to drop quickly.

By comparison, the same kind of test on exactly the same Amiga, using the "Ariadne II" instead of the "X-Surf 100" delivered >940 Kilobytes per second, and the CPU load was far from hitting 96%.

The memory interface of the "X-Surf 100" is so fast that the card can send and receive data faster than the Amiga can deliver. With the "Ariadne II" it's exactly the other way round.
