Someone posted some numbers for distributed compiling on OS4, and IMHO it looked terrible - there was massive overhead & the speed gain per computer was very small & diminishing with each extra computer. IIRC the maximum speed-up was on the order of 2x using many computers, and so not worth the bother IMHO.

SAM Flex has now been picked up and we will have 733Mhz SAM Flex available tomorrow morning.

Pre-orders are being taken now.

bear in mind that os4 supports distributed compiling.. so you could get a very big boost using two sams. thank ssolie for that. :)


how does distributed compiling work?

Whenever something starts from zero it is a climb to 1 at times.

In anycase my idea of networking in that regard was you simply start your project and have one machine do odd and another do even... the frames from both could be saved in a shared directory...

lots of options there in any case...

but upon your research in that area was there any speculation/theory/resolve about what was causing these outcomes?

just get both

my 677mhz lives in an antistatic bag... I got the 800mhz version so the first would be a back up, I must say the 677mhz performed flawlessly... then again, the 800mhz is even smoother...

Italy is quite a way from NZ so I didn't want to be without a SAM in the eventual situation when something does fail...

But to be honest it won't be the last SAM I get anyway, so it probably didn't matter in the end...

anyway, great stuff! Amount of SAM users are growing all the time...

I am sorry, but I am no fond at all to what exactly distrubuted compiling means... Do you imply that if connect two OS4 machines (eg two SAMs) I can use their sum Mhz, or RAM when using the system (e.g playing some games, browsing the internet etc)?

No, it's only for compiling programs (it's usefull for developpers if you prefer).

Mate that is exactly what i did. When my A1 (then x 2) died and I was virtually Amigaless for months I thought my life was over -:)

So I bought myself 2 x SAMs. One I use as a serious nmachine, the other for mucking around with OS4 and Linux but I ain't going to be Amigaless again if I can help it.

BTW my original A1 lasted 7 years or so (from whenever they were released), I replaced that with another. I suspect they were both killed by power spikes frequent in our area because of massive building expansion happening around us.

SAM ain't perfect and doesn't have the grunt of A!s but it is enough to get more people involved and set a baseline for expansion.

cheers

If power spikes are frequent in your area then you should get a UPS. In case of a power shortage it should hopefully also give you enough time to save your work and shutdown your computer properly.

Get a Belkin SurgeMaster. It's quite cheap and give great
protection against spikes.
It's alot cheaper than a UPS.

I have one for my home theater setup aswell as my computer.
I have no worries even when there's thunder outside anymore.

Best Regards,

Harry

I remember the feeling! Very Nice! Enjoy!

@acefnq

Great reason to get 2 x SAMs lol, not so good on the A1 demise but we all have a collection of dead Amiga parts... R.I.P

@all

Just to get the ball rolling too in a more direct way I emailed ACube a few days ago and said, put me down for the next model up please, I'd like to be one of the first to sport the new model...I'll pay for it now and won't worry about a 2-3 month wait... no reply so far, but that is okay... very much enjoying the SAM Flex in the meantime...

I've also acquired firstly a Sam440EP and now, this one is for a friend :p
I've now a Sam440Flex 800Mhz 1gb ram :p

It makes now long time I didn't appreciate development under Amiga :) it's now back to me :p
And it's also a reason to learn C/C++ coding rulez :p

@328gts:
Same for me than what Slayer said :p Enjoy !

Kindest Regards,
Freddix.

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.
