? They run fine here, especially with Update 2. (Not to say OS4 is bug free, but it runs pretty nicely all the same.)

 Re: AmigaOS 4.1 for Sam460ex
With all these different machine either available or in existence it would be nice to have them ranked. I mean - I have a MicroA1. How would that compare to the other OS4-machines? Of course, the A1X1000 will be the fastest, but how about the rest of them?

Speedwise - from slowest to fastest - like this?

SAM440 533mhz
AmigaONE SE 600mhz
SAM440 667mhz
SAM440 733mhz
MicroA1 800mhz
SAM460 1000mhz
AmigaONE XE 1000mhz
A1X1000 - 1XXXmhz

Is this the correct ranking if I am talking about day-to-day usage as well as E-UAE?

Would it be worthwhile for me to upgrade from the microA1 to the SAM460, for example?

Sorry to hear that. Was there a thread where you described your problem? (If not you could start one. I'd want to know whether you built the system yourself or not. Exactly what problems you have. When the problem started. etc)

@Skov

You took only Mhz rating into account. You have to take also L2 cache (size/none), bus speed, RAM speed, speed of graphics card and its GPU and speed of HD's (SATA/SATA2/PATA).

 Re: AmigaOS 4.1 for Sam460ex
@Skov -

I am hoping the Sam460 is faster overall than the Amigaone XE. It lacks Altivec and has a slightly smaller cache, but the memory interface is much faster, it has PCI-Express for graphics and it doesn't have the Articia chip to deal with.

I guess we will find out in September...

I might just settle with the 460 though the x1000 might be faster, I still think the 460 will be cheaper..
And being unemployed and on healthcare.. well
