I honestly don't know this FPGA hardware but if it's based on Intel then those who say it don't understand anything about hardware, that's for sure ... I wish I could use Amiga os 4 on Power but unfortunately from what I understand I can't unfortunately. ..😣

Well I have a g5 quad I've been using to attempt porting some Linux DEs over to ppc and I have my cell/be powerXcell 8i accelerator from fixstars

Hi, this is my first message on this forum!

I am a PPC user and developer for a long time, on Linux and AmigaOS. I love the architecture and own several PPC machines: MacMini, iMac G5, X1000 and other Amiga machines, and various old development boards.
I plan to buy a BlackBird ... on which I would like to port and optimize some apps.

Just out of curiosity, do you also have a MPC86xx-RDB or T4240-RDB from Freescale? If so, maybe you can do some benchmarks with the Phoronix Test Suite? :)

Unfortunately, no, I don't. T4240-RDB would be nice. If I had the opportunity (time) to contribute to the PPC laptop project, I would have been open to get one but that's not the case. Maybe if I find other projects related to this board ...

Apart from the Talos II I also got a G5 11,2, a G4 3,6 DP and a PowerBook G4 5,8. Which I mostly run with MorphOS. Which the Talos is unfortunately lacking. ;)
Linux of choice on my PPC gear is Gentoo, but Void & Adelie do also run pretty well.
