Hardware News : AmigaOne X1000 CPU Revealed

AmigaOne X1000 CPU revealed - the cake is no lie!

A-EON Technology is pleased to finally reveal the identity of the mystery CPU powering the AmigaOne X1000. It's none other than the uber cool PWRficient PA6T processor developed by fabless chip designer PA Semi.

The PA6T-1682M is a high performance, low cost, cool running dual-core, 64-bit, 2 GHz Power CPU specifically designed for embedded military and industrial applications. PA Semi was acquired by Apple in 2008 and all indications were that they purchased the company for its intellectual property and planned to shut down the PA Semi product line. However, following demand from military and industrial users, Apple agreed to continue supplying chips to pre-existing PA Semi customers for a limited time period. Fortunately Varisys, our AmigaOne X1000 hardware partner, had a long-standing relationship with PA Semi and we were able to secure a supply of PA6T CPUs for the AmigaOne X1000 project, making it the first and most probably the only desktop computer based on the unique PA Semi CPU technology as Apple have now closed down the PA Semi product line.

Following intense speculation on several Amiga forums over the identity of the mystery CPU, Thom Holwerda, the Managing Editor of the OSNews website commented on AmigaWorld.net:-

"I can assure you all, with 110% certainty, that the X1000 will NOT carry a processor from PA Semi. If it turns out it does, I will eat my socks and post the video as proof"

We decided to give Thom an exclusive on revealing the identity of the mystery CPU inside the AmigaOne X1000. Rather than the usual staid press release and forcing Thom to eat his own socks we took pity on him and shipped him a special cake decorated with a pair of edible "Boing Ball" socks with a note saying the cake was a gift from A-EON Technology.

Eat cake not socks!

We also wish to give special thanks to premier Amiga developer Davy Wentzler who helped to coordinate the production and delivery of the "Boing Ball" socks cake.

The PA6T CPU paves the way for the introduction of SMP with AmigaOS4.x. Also check out the new multi-core CPUs being developed by Freescale, in particular the 64-bit dual core, 2.2 GHz P5020 and the 8-core, 1.5GHz P4080.
