Amiga Inc Announce AmigaOne Framework

President of Amiga Inc, Bill McEwen used the ACE 2000 show in Australia to make a number of announcements including an announcement about the framework for AmigaOne.

Amiga Inc reiterated that they do not intend to produce AmigaOne products but they have laid out the framework for AmigaOne products. Amiga Inc clearly believes that this is wisest course of action to not produce AmigaOne products themselves for it means that hardware partners and customers will have “the freedom to chose the hardware that best suits their needs and tastes” while Amiga Inc can concentrate their efforts on the Amiga Digital Environment. Amiga Inc must also believe that it is essential that their hardware partners do not produce a product below certain standards.

The specification is as follows:

- One Amiga DE friendly host processor (PPC, x86, Arm, SH4, MIPS)
- 64MB+ memory
- Next Generation Matrox graphics card
- Creative EMU10K1 based audio card
- 10 GB+ HD
- USB 1.0
- Firewire
- 10/100 Mbps Ethernet
- 56k modem
- Spare PCI slots for expandability

Readers should realise that this framework is something that hardware partners will build on for they cannot go below this “minimum specification” for the desktop and workstation markets. Amiga Inc will ensure that any proposed AmigaOne product has gone through “a thorough quality certification of the final product. Only then can the product be called an AmigaOne”.
