Amiga Clone Natami - Planned For Summer 2008
This project is probably the most promising Amiga clone currently. I'm in hope that they release this baby, looks like a nice Minimig killer.
The production of developer boards is planned for Summer 2008.
- Developer board:
- NATAMI with below specification
- Including 16 MB high performance Chipmem
- 68060 CPU (up to 90 MHz for CPU and BUS speed)
- 256 MB Fastmem
The Natami is no expansion card but a complete computer, compatible with Commodore AMIGA.
- GFX: SuperAGA chipset on board
Compatible to AGA but enhancing it.
- Supported Resolutions:
320x256 - 1280x1024
- Supported Pixelformats:
Planar 1-8 Planes, HAM 6/8, 8bit Chunky, 16bit Hicolor, 32bit Truecolor
- Video and VGA out:
TV resolutions on TV-connector
Automatic "scandoubling" of low resolutions on VGA-connector
- AUDIO: SuperPaula
From: 8bit Samples x 6 Volume
To: 16bit Samples x 8 Volume
- SVideo-in and Audio-in:
SuperAGA has both SVideo-in and SVideo-out with genlock support integrated
Audio in is provided for your convience as well.
- COPPER: including original AGA copper
Fully compatible with AGA-AMIGA
Speed of SuperBlitter is many times faster than AMIGA AGA blitter
- 2D Enhancements:
In Chunky/Hicolor/ or Truecolor pixel mode the Super Blitter can "cookie cut" copy bobs.
Like the AMIGA Sprites, a "cooki cut" copy needs no blitting mask.
This enabled the blitter to use less memory and to at double speed compared to planar blits.
- 3D Accelerator:
Texturemapping Blitter enhancement.
Provides Mipmapping, Subpixel 4 way interpolation, Light sources, Antialiasing
- Amiga Compatible IDE controller
- Amiga Compatible Floppy Disk controller
- PCI slots to allow later upgrading
- CPU on board
68060 CPU on board for instant compatibility with AMIGA software
- CPU expansion slot
Allows upgraded to another CPU (Coldfire/PowerPC/Cell/x86)
SLOT layout will be fully documented to allow 3rd party upgrade Designs.
