An exchange between Jim Collas, president of Amiga, and another individual on Usenet has heightened speculation that the company may use the Transmeta processor in its Amiga MCC platform. This morning, Amiga released its specs for its hardware platforms (see Amiga releases technical brief with 'exciting Linux CPU'). Yesterday, posting in the comp.sys.amiga.misc newsgroup, D Cousins speculated that Amiga was set to incorporate the Transmeta processor into its platform. He pointed out that the die size, plus its ability to run emulations including classic Amiga apps, could make it a candidate. Collas replied to that post saying: "I can't verify that any of this is true but this is a brilliant speculation. You can expect similar types of hardware/software integration and optimization in the new Amiga... this influenced the Linux decision. Unfortunately, I can't talk about certain partners yet so people will continue to reach conclusions without all of the information." In the last week, other speculation on the CPU Amiga will use has centred around a MIPS CPU from LSI Logic, which the company licensed from SandCraft several months ago. Interestingly enough, NatSemi said yesterday that it was talking to Amiga former partner QNX about support for its Geode family of system-on-a-chip solutions. ® See Also Amiga seeks to pacify community over Linux QNX developer pleas for Amiga community support Amiga to use Linux rather than QNX kernel
