- per clock, 080 is faster
-> never ever trust benchmarks by Gunnar !!!!
Why do you believe they are flawed? CPU exceeds 060 in real use,
memory performance is excellent (faster then x1000 DDR2 - did the test)
-so in v4 breaking 100MHz and afterwards, Vampire will be more
-powerful then 603 160Mhz.
-> in a few years Vampire might be just as fast as something that is barely useable today
True, but in its own m68k league is a champ and advancement. Reason why I opt for it is real non-emulated m68k app library and games.
It simply just needs a faster FPGA (or ASIC) and that is it.Its not something one cannot expect to be.
-->> porting MorphOS to "oldworld" Macs (60x to G3) would make more sense (well still close to 0).
Well, yes to A1, G3 and G5 Macs would be nice, since Efika is out of picture as its low end.
Other easier option would simple be AmiKit X for Vamp.
But MorphOS going multi-arch sounds tempting
Plus it has 0 past junk with Amiga Inc,
which seems to be great adventage now.
What people miss is that Vamps do progress inside a generation (v2,v4) and between them. I dont see such thing with PPCs and would be much more amazed if we had FPGA onboard x1000/x5000 then unusable Xorro, whereby even manufacturer of chips does not intend to port even Linux x86 tools to Linux PPC.[ Edited by vox 26.11.2018 - 15:17 ]
