visage can use datatypes by specifying the -datatype option on the commandline.    May as well use multiview if you want it in a window though.

Thats what I don´t understand, what WINDOW is he talking about ???
Doesn´t MorphOS allow the programs to open their own screens?
Apple did it right the first time, bring back the Newton!

@Dan

Offcourse it does have screens .....
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

Thanks for clearing that up Kronos.
I want to buy a Pegasos but which one should I get the Peg1 G4 or the Peg2 G4?

It was a simple miscommunication between my brain and fingers. In other words, it was supposed to be SCREEN, which is why I edited my post.

I'll make a speedtest with Collector as soon as 1.4 is officially out.
We're not supposed to spread info about it before then.

Actually I think it would be a good idea to set up a little "test
suite", consisting of widely used Aminet programs, to make real-world
tests with. Things like AmiGOD are nice, but real programs are better
imo. This way we could compare 060 systems, Amithlon, MorphOS, and OS4
for that matter when that's out.

Preferrably, programs which are scriptable should be used, I guess. So
you can just download the stuff from Aminet and run the script,
watch the action and get the results.

I run many apps on their own screens.
Try blazedmongers new Free Universal Computer kit, available with the GUI toolkit Your Own Universe, the popular IT edition, Extremely Reliable System for embedded work, Enhanced Database development and Wide Area Development system for telecommuting.

Below are the compilation times of a program (GoldED) compiled with SAS/C under UAE, UAE with JIT and MOS without JIT. Compilation is a reasonable test for raw performance. Integer performance obviously. The compiler is run with precompiled headers to take HD speed out of the equation.

[...] The PC@1.4 GHz has 512 MB DDR-RAM, 40 GB Maxtor HD and 160 GB RAID; Maxtor used for test. The Pegasos@600MHz has 256 MB SD-RAM and a 40 GB Barracuda IDE.

UAE /w JIT: 1: 59 min
UAE no JIT: 11:52 min
MorphOS 1.3 no JIT: 4:19 min


With MorphOS 1.4 released today, I'll use the opportunity to update those figures:

UAE /w JIT: 1: 59 min
UAE no JIT: 11:52 min
MorphOS 1.3 no JIT: 4:19 min
MorphOS 1.4 /w JIT: 1:05 min

MorphOS 1.4 is almost four times faster than the previous version in this test (which is a test about running CPU-intensive classic software, not about PPC software). It outperforms my 1.4 GHz UAE PC by a factor of two.

Just curious....

So, does the MOS JIT manage keep all the 68K register contents in PPC registers during the bulk of the execution or what?

No matter, it sure sounds impressive.

For the sake of comparison (and we knew this was coming), I am posting my AmiGOD2 results from MorphOS 1.3, and the new numbers from MorphOS 1.4 with JIT. (G3/600MHz, Radeon 7000)
----------------------------------

MorphOS 1.3
2D GFX: 50506
Math 68k: 184
Intuition: 811
Memory: 555

MorphOS 1.4
2D GFX: 52433
Math 68K: 645
Intuition: 2011
Memory: 625

--------------

Amiga 4060/50MHz, Piccaso II

2D GFX: 1794
Math68k: 54 (native)
Intuition: 119
Memory: 8

--------------

Your numbers may vary, but that's what I have on my MorphOS machine.  The numbers from the 4000 come from the AmiGOD2 page (Don Cox's A4000 tests, number 17).  My 1.3 numbers are on the same page (Number 4).
