    Efika 5200B support was added to MorphOS only in 2008 (MorphOS 2.0) :-)

    In window mode I get 78-87 FPS on my 1.5 Ghz. Macmini.

    In full screen mode I get 120-130 FPS.


    Sorry, I didn't mention, but I have in mind default options, i.e. fullscreen.
    Many thanks, 120-130fps is faster then Pegasos.

    Slightly hijacking this thread: is there any fps show option on uae? I'd like to check if there is any benefit in switching off vsync into some classic games. So far, I didn't witness any difference into my tests.

    Though vsync didn't raise the fps counter on Q3 to my setup, it did help smoothing fps while under heavy load (big scenes on maps with many enemies while speed strafing).

    To execute it as script I do: run setenv TGLSYNC 0? Switching 0 to 1 bring back vsync I pressume?

    Which one would that be (bigger factual error than being half a decade off, that is)?

    I know, for someone the smallest details are more important than the meaning of the message. Anyway, I don't have exact diary from these days. My apollogies for this. I don't want to search archives and wayback machines to be absolute precise. We was talking also about purchase of AmigaOne years before it was oficially available. The same with Tabor today ;-)
    Here is mentioned Efika years before official production and here years before MorphOs support.

    Yes, you are right, we cannot speak about Efika in 2003, but can in 2005 ;-)

    But the meaning of the message is, that in the past I was thinking about purchase of Efika. I didn't buy it, and I want to buy it now. Pleeeease!

    For some other people, being corrected on details means the corrector didn't get the meaning of the message ;-) Btw, I'm still waiting for Kronos to reveal the real big error he said you made :-)

    > My apollogies for this. [...] Yes, you are right, we cannot speak

    No need to apologize. We all err or misremember from time to time.

    > We was talking also about purchase of AmigaOne years

    "AmigaOne" has always been just a label and what was to be sold under that label changed multiple times over the years. What was finally sold as "AmigaOne" in late 2002 was technically a different product than what was initially announced 2½ years before. Not so with the Efika 5200B.

    > Here is mentioned Efika years before official production
    > and here years before MorphOs support.

    Indeed, Efika 5200B took 3 whole years from initial announcement to official MorphOS support (1½ years from initial announcement to official production and then another 1½ years to official MorphOS support).

    I see, no one wants to correct his inaccurate detail about half a decade, so what. Correcting other people's details is easier.

    @amigadave
    Many thanks for your offer. Fortunately just now arrives Efika from my colleague from Germany.

    @all
    Merry Christmas and all the best in the year 2021.

    That's because "choosing between buying Efika and Pegasos 2" was stated, not "choosing between waiting for Efika and buying Pegasos 2" :-) And considering that this is MorphZone, it's certainly not uncalled for to refer the statement to MorphOS actually being available for the platform, not just announced for and demoed on it, leaving just Linux to use.
    But yeah, if you really considered Efika as a future purchase alternative to Pegasos 2 in 2005 when it was just announced and the MorphOS team message was that there won't be MorphOS support (which I'd find utterly implausible), then it's just 2 years instead of half a decade. And if you really considered Efika as a purchase alternative to Pegasos 2 in late 2006 when it was available but MorphOS just announced for and demoed on it, then it's just 3 years instead of half a decade.
    And as I see, no one wants to reveal the real big error you allegedly made :-)

    Hello,

    I forgot to mention - I got the Efika from a colleague from Germany - thank you. I'm still testing it and when I finish testing (and don't burn it) I will register MorphOS.

    And many thanks also to amigadave for his offer.

    No matter how far you overclock a Peg2 :
    - it might reach the 1.25-1.5GHz of a MacMini
    - it might have a better GPU than any MacMini
    - it won't reach the RAM speed of any MacMini
    - it won't reach the AGP speed of any MacMini

    -> Peg2 will only be faster for games that can make full use of a better GFX card and are not bottlenecked by CPU,RAM or AGP, everything else will run faster on the Mini.


    Here can be explanation why overclocked Pegasos + 9800PRO is so good compared to Powerbook - videobus-speed
    Measured with RageMem(AOS) and GfxSpeed(MOS). It is interesting, because Pegasos2 have AGPx1(PCI) and Powerbook AGP x4.
