| Iwin: product specifications of A510MP and A1010MP online|
At AmiUpdate, the entry in the Sun Dealer Catalog is considered sufficient proof for the existence of Iwin. Here's the entry.
At ANN, there are two more interesting postingsabout the subject: 1. The manufacturer of the tower casings has been found, it is the company Antec. 2. Jeffrey D. Webster explains in a posting to c.s.a.m. why it isn't that hard to get added to the Sun Dealer Catalog.
Comment about the technical specification: It reads all too well. You cannot run the bus system with a 68060-50, however. You will never get the speed to the PCI bus to transport the data fast enough for the pixel rates of the gfx card. Not to speak of AGP. I consider that impossible with a 68060 CPU. A company without Amiga experience can never implement this stuff. For this, the subject is far too complicated. And how is all this intended to run without Amiga chipset?
Thomas Raukamp writes: About your comment about bus speed - don't forget that the Milan is running gfx cards on the PCI bus with 060, so it is possible. Far less likely is that the emulation of the Custom Chips is possible without modification of the Kick-ROMs. If they modify them, they break the licence since they have none. With this, Iwin would end in court.
