ATIO System Inc. microATX AmigaOne appears to be a Hoax
« on: August 12, 2003, 10:46:14 PM »
Update: Ben Hermans confirms via E-mail that the whole Micro ATX board is a hoax. There will be a Mini ITX board next to the existing AmigaOne, but no other hardware is planned at this moment.

I'd prefer to see something more solid before I get too excited.

THIS would be the board to build into one of NovaDesigns/Retrosystem's A1000 cases! (microATX is the right spec, right?) An all-in-one 1200 casedesign would be even better, but that would have to be designed ground up.

Considering that the address still doesn't work, and that confirmation is therefore still hindered somewhat, I would have a question for the moderation staff.

Earlier today, when I tried to submit this same story, it was rejected for lack of confirmability and I was told to keep an eye on it. Now I find this story posted with someone else's name on it.

Ben Hermans said on ANN: "As I mentioned in Sacramento, they are involved in the production of AmigaOne machines."

I think thats conformation enough.

Well, then the question is....

Is there going to be rift between Hyperion and Eyetech now?  Is there a licence fee to Eyetech for the dongle now?  How will they be priced when produced?  How much longer before OS4?  Will envoy work correctly between MorphOS and OS4?

@Kees

Not necessarily, nor even logical.  They are involved in the production, but they do it under contract for those boards called AmigaONE.  Until Eyetech has signed an agreement with them for this new motherboard of theirs, it's just a theoretical idea.  I highly suspect that they will sign it and soon, however.

@lempkee: remember that the ATX != Lite

There was 3 slides in Alans presentation, one for an ATX version and 2 for the Lite (I think, could be vice-versa)

Why would there be a license fee to Eyetech for a dongle? The "dongle" is just a bunch of bits burned into the flashrom of the AmigaOne, and was written by Hyperion. I fail to see why Eyetech would need money from someone to make an AmigaOne...  :-?

Site works fine for me, but I didnt see any mention of this board. They have some nice stuff. I've seen mediator systems using one of the PCI style cards they make on them. That would be a nice way to go. A PPC PCI board that just fits in the Mediator and can run its own stuff in the same case.
