Nah we Sam owners are just fine and is ACube as the X1000 is priced as 'high' end Amiga (probably cost double the Sam) and the Sams will be considered low end so there will always be a market for the Sams :-)  
Now Hyperion PLEASE give us our OS4.1 UPDATE ...

2 PCIeX16 slots............. for GFX cards? Crossfire? SLI?  Oh my, I just wet myself!
I need to go and lay down.

All we need now is for "Chaos Engine the remake" to be an OS4 exclusive and my life will be complete.

Looks very impressive.
I think this processor fits all the fancy X names: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xenon_%28processor%29
Hope they're gonna use something like it.

It's most certainly not that. It's a dual core processor conforming to Power Architecture 2.04. If Wikipedia is to believed the only processors conforming to that spec are the PA6T from PA Semi and the AMCC Titan. Xenon is only Power Architecture 2.03. Since PA Semi got bought by Apple, the Titan seems like the most likely candidate. I suppose something with the e500mc core in the QorIQ from Freescale woud technically fit the description too (it conforms to Power Architecture 2.06 which is a superset of 2.04).

Hi,

@all Amiga fanatics,

I am not getting my hopes up yet, been through this too many times since Commodore went under. Saw too much vapor hardware in the past.

If the X1000 does come out, I will wait and see on what the outcome will be.
Will software companies embrace it?
Will the expermental software writers go to it?
Will we have new graphic and sound demos?
Will Fred Fish come back?
How about the rag mags?

Yes I want a new Amiga, I want a good OS, I want the feel of the old Amiga 1000, if it has all this and supports todays modern features, I want it and will probably buy it. I can't wait to get out of Microsofts rule, and their wanting to tell me what I can or cannot do with my computer (and believe me, Microsoft wants to own you and your computer, they want to be able to turn it off at their will, by saying you are not following the rules).

So yes promise me a new computer, I want it.

I have no idea what your talking about, so here is a doggy with a small pancake on his head.

MorphOS is a MAC done a little better

No, not until it sells a certain number of units or show some unique hardware implementation.

>Will the expermental software writers go to it?

Perhaps, who knows?

>Will we have new graphic and sound demos?

Don't think so. Most amiga demo coders are 68k assembly true to their bone. Nothing much has been written for OS4 or SAM.

>Will Fred Fish come back?

That would scare me. He is RIP.

>How about the rag mags?

We have Amiga Future. No new magazines will come before Amiga Future proves there is a market.

New hardware won't do it alone. It's also up to the community too, coders and users to make this happen. But also Hyperion has to give out development machines.

Hmm.. I wonder if this could actually end up cheaper or at least about the same price as the Sam, that is if the CPU they have chosen is more readily available & cheaper. /


If the fully configured system matches the price of a SAM I'll be in there like swimwear!

With today's tools I can easily see big titles converted for this architecture if the market is interesting for some game makers.   It would be a good move from them to sell the X1000 with some software, not just an OS.   Like the A1200 bundle was.    Some office apps, a few games and there you have a lot of happy geeks :)

It's cool to see an AMIGA system that can support NextGen games... AND support retro like no other..!

What catches my attention, and what I believe makes this setup far superior to all other attempts so far, is Xorro and Xena.

Think about all of the devices the community has hacked together for our beloved Amiga Zorro slots and clock ports. This is "come hack me" hardware built into the design! Pure genius!

Sorry, had that early-90's geek excitement stir up. I don't get that feeling very often these days.

Mac Mini 1.5GHz, that might run MorphOS someday, when the fools who own it come to the realization that 30 minutes just isn\'t enough time to play with it enough to decide whether or not you like it enough to cough up $200.

It wont match the price of a SAM... as Hyperion said it, SAM = entry level machine, in otherwords its the lower specced, cheaper way to get an OS4.1 machine.

Now if SAM is low specced and cheap. I am afraid to ask whats the high specced gonna cost.

I'm not expecting it to be cheap.  If it's too expensive, well, I can always get a second mortgage on my house ;-) I would consider selling my family into slavery to raise the money, but I don't think anyone would want them ...

Seriously, though, this is amazing news.  I haven't been this excited since 1985.
