Lets talk about A1222 - Tabor
« on: October 11, 2017, 07:11:33 PM »
AmiWest is coming and maybe A1222 with it.

I was reading specs and there is written:

HDMI LCD Interface
• 24 bit colour depth
• Support for resolution up to 1280x1024
• HDMI 1.3 support

Is this some sort of integrated GPU?

What kind of Radeon cards will be supported? Radeon HD? There is plenty of them.

BTW. I hope it will come with back plate  (I could not stop myself!).

I certainly hope it will still happen.  I was starting to get that sinking feeling too.  I have been waiting for an affordable modern Amiga since the now cancelled OS4 netbook.  I had no idea there was still any kind of next gen Amiga until I just on a whim decided to search Amiga computers several years ago.  I had. Never used one but I had a 64 then which I use to this day.  My first Amiga would be an A1222 (if you don't count the Minimig I bought back in 2011).

I'm also not fully understanding the images I've seen of the full system.  Can I infer that it's almost like a suitcase with an attched screen, like a big laptop?
That would be really cool.  Is that all for the 400 euros or would that be optional add on?  Lots of questions, but I am stoked for this to finally be an Amiga user.  The SAM systems and X1000 and X5000s look awesome, but I couldn't justify spending that much.  A1222 is priced perfectly.  Hope to hear something official soon.  I'm not an active member, but I've been following the Amiga goings on since about 2010.  Hope this comes soon.

I hope also for the Tabor. I go to Germany to the amiga 32 messe, last weekend of this month. http://www.amiga32.de/WB.html
The price is not 400 euro for the computer. It is the price for only the motherbord with the cpu. I think complete 800-1000 euro. That is ok for me.
I have save the money.
 I hope the Amigaxone 1222 is there these month or shortly after.
But there is now news about the Tabort of a lange time and i this situation is " now news not good news " , i am afraid.

My understanding is the goal for price is $500 range for a complete system. You will still need monitor, keyboard and mouse, but its entire purpose is to get OS4.1 into the hands of as many as they can for a fair price.

I'd bet next week at Amiwest we get some news on this.

Update on the A1222! (from Trevors blog)

"It's been a while coming but we hope to present the AmigaOne A1222 at both the AmiWest and Amiga32 shows later this month. Actually, the A1222 has been displayed running Debian PowerPC Linux at numerous Amiga shows over the past two years. The machine also made a sneak appearance in the Amiga family group photo taken at the Amiga30th Anniversary celebrations at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California in 2015. I even had a video of AmigaOS4.1 running on the A1222 playing under Linux on the A1222 at VCF SE 5.0 retro show in Roswell, Georgia in April this year. This time however, the plan is to show AmigaOS 4.1 running on the AmigaOne A1222 in a live public demonstration for the first time. Although there is still some work needed to done on audio and Ethernet drivers before the AmigaOne A1222 can be commercially released, the FPU optimization appears to be progressing well."

Thanks Trevor for that update!!!

It works quite nice. I hope it will be even better when second core will be used be AmigaOS. I really hope price will be "affordable" and we can finally SEE it available.

My impression too was that the complete system would be around $500 US from what I'd read so far.  I also thought the resolution was. Up to 1080P over HDMI 1.3.

@CommodoreRock

the A1222 can support any resolution (for the most part) your graphics card can, thanks to the recent versions of the RadeonHD driver from A-EON. the comment about "1280x1024 resolution support" from earlier refers only to the on-board graphics controller, which i wouldn't bother with given its limitations and lack of HW acceleration. it's just a feature of the P1022 itself and is meant for embedded purposes. no one will be using it.

my A1222 is running a 1080p display quite nicely. ;)

I see, that is quite disappointing. I was hoping that integrated gpu could be useful  somehow. It would be nice to have itx motherboard in one of those super tiny cases.

If this gpu is "useless" and can't run even AmigaOS in reasonable way I would not bother in including it at all in this motherboard, but as usual not my choice to make.

Of course it can be used.
Hardware acceleration isn't an absolute requirement.
And some of the PCI-E cards that are supported under OS4.1 can be had quite cheaply.

I can find Radeon HD 6450 cards on eBay right now starting at $13.95, which would allow dual OS4/Linux support.
And Radeon HD 7450 cards start at $15.

Personally, in half height cards, I rather like the HD 8490 or the R5 230 (both use the same core).

And R7 240 cards aren't that expensive.

BTW - I had thought the $500 price point was for the board only, if its for the entire system, all the better.
