    It's there now, and it took just 1½ years :-) So far only Talos II (Lite), no Blackbird.

    On these boards the MorphOS or AmigaOS4.x only not running... flying, but this wil be impossible for the prices and because MorphOS or AmigaOS4.x will haven't support to so many cores and threads, but is a good and beauty dream, our systems on this boards.

    Yes, I guess Blackbird board with 4-core CPU will amount to at least 2500 EUR incl. VAT. That's no bargain for sure.

    MorphOS is being used on quad-G5, and OS4 (and MorphOS?) is being used on X5000/40 (by beta testers). With regard to power consumption, it would be good if unused cores could be switched off or put to sleep. As it stands, MorphOS is not able to do that (and OS4 neither, I guess).


    Edit: According to bigfoot, "MorphOS already does power down the unused cores […] since MorphOS 3.10" on the X5000/Cyrus, which includes the X5000/40 with P5040.
