The AmigaONE X1000 is not like other computers. It's based on a PowerPC CPU architecture, it includes Xena, a "Software Defined Silicon" co-processor, and above all it runs AmigaOS 4.
It is 27 years since the launch by US computer company Commodore of the Amiga A1000, a revolutionary machine that introduced multimedia and multi-tasking to the world. While AmigaOS has continued in development (making it possibly the longest developed and used desktop OS in the world) the hardware side has had a harder time of it since the demise of Amiga's old parent company, Commodore.
A-EON Technology, in co-operation with Varisys, Hyperion Entertainment and AmigaKit created the AmigaONE X1000, a new high-end, prestige platform that will once more allow the Amiga Operating System to shine.
The AmigaONE X1000 ends the years of AmigaOS being coupled to outdated hardware - great as it was at the time, the world has moved on a long way since the days of Commodore. For the first time in many years, AmigaOS has a genuinely modern hardware platform.
