And I'm going to see if a G5 will run with only one CPU installed.


it will run but its not advised, it messes up the openfirmware / fancontrol / thermal control stuff and the machine gets somewhat confused and will try and try and full force temp controls on cpu not there and messes up the one that is there.  I dont know if its osx or openfirmware thats flakey, but when I tested it on my dual g5, it really did not like removing a cpu.

OK, so removing one CPU is out. Let's hope Bigfoot throttles the unused CPU down.

it dosn't look good for the 3,000$ x1000 verses a 100$ ebay g5 power mac.... That is quite a huge difference in price as far as performance.


Why people insists of compare prices of new hardware versus used hardware? it's crazy and stupid. it's like compare the price of a old 250 hp car that is cheap versus a new 100 hp new car, sure the later is a bit less powerful and it's more expensive but it is NEW and have NEWER and EFFICIENT technology

Not if the new car is built around a 6 year old engine (used or not, it's still old tech).
1. Make an announcment.
2. Wait a while.
3. Check if it can actually be done.
4. Wait for someone else to do it.
5. Start working on it while giving out hillarious progress-reports.
6. Deny that you have ever announced it
7. Blame someone else

But the used old car is build around a even older engine ;-)

ibook support as well as support for more Powerbooks is under way, since the ADB is no more a prob for the MorphOS Team.
Well, yay.

(I suppose it's too much to hope for that the PowerBook G3 Lombard I nabbed at the recycle center yesterday would be supported?)

New, old, who cares?
Has anyone seen the re-sale value of an old Hemi Charger?

Well X, now I will be able to play back 1080p video. Before I was limited to 720p.
And there's always a use for more power.
What we'll need next are better video cards.
But then, we should have R300 3D drivers soon, and we may even get support for more powerful cards then that.



There's a valid point I suppose, though I can't validate purchasing an X1000 at this point just to play Blue Ray quality video on my computer screen. Not that I have any money as it is, but you know...

I seem to recall from one of the FAQs that they won't support G3s at all.

Only in Pegasos I and II computers.

Well, yeah, but I thought that had to do with the ADB issue, and that's apparently solved now. (Though I dunno, was ATI as free with documentation on the Rage series chipsets as it was with Radeons? That might be an issue.)

Anyway, it'd just be nice - the Lombard is too slow to run OSX pleasantly, but it should handle an Amiga-derived OS perfectly fine, I'd think...

As long as there are functional Linux drivers, ATI's unwillingness to divulge isn't that important. But from what I've heard, no, they're not very forthcoming with complete documentation.

There's an ATI Rage driver for MorphOS included in current release already, albeit for the 128Pro and 2D only (yet).

Hmm. It really would be sweet to be able to put that Lombard to use...
