This reminded me on Coldfire and talking about how it will be good for watching DVDs and similar - in times when people went on HD gradually. I don't know what was realized from those ideas, not followed it, but remember that I said that it will be problem, because CPU is most likely not enough fast for it.
Now we have case of Vampire 2 and by me again too high expectations. Indeed, you will be able to watch movies, but in what quality, what codecs ?
Latest x256/HEVC is very demanding by playback (encoding even more) - even some 64-bit 2.7 GHz, dual core is not enough for full HD flawless playback. Vampire 2 will be weak even for DVD, that's what I see. Maybe something of future versions ...
Back to our business, Atari SW: no way that my hard disk adapts will work with it without lot of changes, and most likely same stays for Klapauzius, D-Bug ones too.
1. PMMU is used a lot in HAGA, and since it will be used always when non 68000, so 68030 mode is set it will fail. But even older releases use little PMMU code to move table on better place than it is normally by TOS 3/4 it will be problem.
2. Solution would be to remain is ST(E) mode, but then stackframe will be problem.
3. Speed: most of SW will not work normally or at all at so high CPU speed. What will work will be mostly unplayable fast. There will be plenty of flickering in many 3D games (FS2 flickers already on 16 MHz CPU). Only chance is turtle mode, or better to just switch back to org. CPU - but ! They won't to keep it in machine
Indeed, it will be like Firebee, but not new machine, just upgrade, what is just not good idea by me.
After watchin' that Majsta presentation I see little better their aims, what is motivation behind all this, and must say see lot of mistakes in judging.
Funny thing was that majsta talked about some normal things like DMA as he invented it - when talked about how reading from CF into RAM is invisible for core - that's is for me pretty discutable PR score hunting. He has very bad opinion about today mainstream computer manufacturing, but that's gone too far and emotional. Amiga is something best what human brain invented, so must be kept alive, furthermore he talked about Amiga based smartphones and like ... Here most put us back on ground:
Motorola, IBM, Apple are not idiots. They abandoned 68000 line with reason. They spent millions if not billions in development of new CPU designs, so how to expect that some small team will develop almost without money something competitive.
Not good idea to advertise something what is basically faster, hacked 68040 as compatible with 68000-68060 line. We all know that they are compatible at some level. But Vampire 2 is actually not 100% compatible even with 68040 - according to what Gunnar said - they changed behavior of reading SR in user mode. PMMU is omitted or changed - another incompatibility.
Finally, they rushed with those claims for what it may be good, after really limited tests, I guess only on Amiga boards.
Famous Schrodinger's cat hypothetical experiment says that cat is dead or alive until we open box and see condition of poor animal, which deserved better logic. Cat is always in some certain state - regardless from is observer able or not to see what the state is.
