||Amiga34: MorphOS on an AMD64 computer|
This weekend the Amiga34 is taking place in Neuss, Germany. Here the MorphOS developer team has presented its operating system on an AMD-Ryzen-5 computer equipped with a Radeon-HD-4650 graphics board (Twitter: picture, video).
Regarding the video Károly 'chainq' Balogh has pointed out that it is a very early version with debug output handele - actually this morning Mark 'bigfoot' Olsen got it running on this new computer, for he could not bring his older system. Therefore you should not draw conclusions from the length of the booting about the future performance.
Due to a PowerPC emulation, on the AMD64 all existing PowerPC and 68k programs are working. This is based on a new kernel written by Mark Olsen, which is running on the presented system completely AMD64-nativ in 64-Bit mode, but also on PPC32 and PPC64 processors.
The presented system only is a preview what a future MorphOS NG could look like; many components still are missing. On the demonstration computer a mixture of AMD64 and PowerPC code is used.
Additionally the MorphOS team presents an Amiga 4000 with MorphOS 3.13 on a - according to the description - Cyberstorm-PPC accelerator board with 420 MHz (photo of its processor), that had already been shown at Amiga32 also. (snx) (Translation: dr)
