What’s in a name? AmigaONE X5000 revealed

Cardiff, 8th January 2014

A-EON Technology is pleased to announce the new naming scheme for the AmigaONE models based on the Cyrus motherboard.

We asked the Amiga community to select their preference from a list of twelve optional naming schemes. We also asked every beta test member who joined the Cyrus Plus beta test team to select their preferred option. The votes poured in and from the very start it quickly developed into a two horse race with the frontrunners way ahead of the field. However, it remained neck and neck with the final result in doubt right up until the Cyrus Plus beta test vote.

It is fitting that it was the beta test team members who finally tipped the voting balance in favour of the eventual winner. As a result we are pleased to announce that the name for our new AmigaONE model is the: AmigaONE X5000

To distinguish the CPU variants, following an original Commodore tradition, models with the P5020 CPU will carry the /20 suffix, while those with the P5040 CPU will carry the /40 suffix. The corresponding name for the P3041 model is the AmigaOne X3500
