Yeah, this all is more or less hobby, as long as only AmigaOS3 is involved.
However, they claim that the Apollo core is as fast or even faster (considering Hyper-threading) than some of the PPC accelerators or even some of the lower spec G4s.
Together with AROS could be a nice combo.
I've seen those comments too, but I think they are overreaching.
Hey, enjoy it for what it is, a way to elevate the performance of legacy hardware and its OS'.
I still use legacy hardware, so I can understand the appeal.
Plus, '060 and PPC accelerators are virtually unobtainable.
AND, even though some of the Apollo team might
be a little
, they did push on a get a product produced.
Good for them, and a lesson for any naysayers that think this can only be done with the funding of a corporate backer.
We CAN build what we want, if we are committed to doing so.
