New Amiga Hardware To Arrive Despite Legal Battle

Anybody else seen this on OSNews?:

http://osnews.com/story.php/17841/AC...-Legal-Battle/

Faster than a PPC Mac they say. Crikey.

ACK Controls has been anouncing hardware for the last 2-3 years. They never delivered.

I also find it difficult to imagine anything being released by Amiga that could outrun a dual G5 PowerMac.

Yeah true.

But for USD1500 (given the spec the "entry level" machine boasts for USD500)?

Hmmmm.

I remember, in 1992, people with brand new 486DX-2 50 PC's sold their Pc's in a hurry to get an A1200 or A4000....... both of which was vastly slower in pure CPU-speed than their 486DX2-50's. Reason they gave me was "The Amigas can run more with less, and more efficient"

If OS4 is built on the same sources as previous OS' for the amiga, then that statement won't have become oboslete. We've "always" had slower CPUspeeds than the PC..... but we've had the better computers all the time.

A G3 sounds to me like ACK is thinking rightly. People like me won't have several hundred to splash out.... at most I'll have 150 at any one time. I'll be happy with an "entrylevel" as long as it's an Amiga.

I just hope now, that it's not just more ainc-type hot air.

A pc in 92 was so much fun. install a game or whatever in windows and there was never enough resources left to actually run the game. had to have it drop into pure dos to run anything

If anything the right down immature, amateur, tone of the whole IRC transcript convinced me fully that this is full on crock-o-shit. Really. It's literally sad the Amiga has ended in this.

A guy who's cooking CPU's on his backyard is going to come up with a PPC that will make Apple re-think the move to x86, the most utter tripe I've ever heard A guy, incidentally, that never produced a single proof of delivery to begin with.
