    Multi-threading may or may not be true for the e6500 core variant to be used in the T5 (provided the T5 has not been cancelled anyway, that is). Refer to:

    ...for use in desktop-centric systems like A-Eon's, yes. Should the T5 arrive, it will have less (but higher clocked) cores than T4 with its current maximum of 12 cores in the T4240. The 4-core T2080 is an interesting chip as well btw.

    I don't know about amigadave, but judging by Magnetic's past postings on that matter I'm quite sure that new PPC hardware (and a port of OS4 or MorphOS to it) is not what Magnetic wishes for.
