About the AmigaOne X1000.
The AmigaOne X1000 is not like other computers. It is a culmination of efforts by real Amiga enthusiasts and developers to create powerful, modern desktop hardware for the Amiga Operating System. It is the natural evolution of the Amiga’s PowerPC lineage and is based on the PA-Semi Dual-core PA6T-1682M CPU and includes Xena, a “Software Defined Silicon” co-processor. Above all, it runs the latest version of the AmigaOS.
