Snoqualmie, USA - 27th September 2002.
Amiga Inc is delighted to announce that its partner, Hyperion, has completed development of the AmigaOne firmware. Based on the PPCBoot GPL project, it provides the low level foundation that will allow AmigaOS4.0 to be integrated into the AmigaOne hardware.

The new firmware provides:

x86 BIOS emulator capable of initializing and using nearly all PCI and AGP graphic cards based on the chipsets of ATI, nVidia, 3DFX, S3, 3Dlabs (Permedia), Trident etc.
Auto detection of SDRAM modules
Auto detection of bus and CPU speed
Support for PCI and AGP
General ArtiticaS support
General VIA686 southbridge support (686A and 686B)
IDE support (harddisk and CD-ROM booting)
Floppy support
Booting over network
AmigaOS4.0 will thus be able to support the following at a Firmware
level:

Serial port
USB UHCI
USB keyboard
USB storage devices
PS/2 compatible keyboard
i8259 interrupt controller
3com 3c920 ethernet with full bus mastering
VIA IDE controller (A and B revision)
Real time clock (RTC)
Our congratulations to Hyperion.

Amiga Inc.
