MicroDigital tout big RAM for OmegaBy Chris Williams. Published: 9th Jul 2004, 22:27:37 | Permalink | Printable
While apps use a couple of MB eachConfidently shrugging off the ongoing Castle-RISCOS Ltd. dispute, MicroDigital have today on their website mentioned a couple of developments for the StrongARM powered Omega computer.
"As an antidote to all the misinformation and uninformed gloom and doom we have all seen over the past few weeks, we are pleased to announce that we have Omega computers that are fitted with RISC OS Adjust operating system running with up to 1GB of main memory," states MicroDigital.
MicroDigital also suggest the possibility of fitting up to 4GB of RAM to the Omega, but this could result in a conflict with the current design of the RISC OS memory layout, which has devices and peripherals 'mapped' into the overall memory space of the computer. 1GB and 2GB of main memory is possible, it would appear, memory chip supplies permitting.
One thing to note is MicroDigital's continued backing of RISCOS Ltd.'s RISC OS Adjust, despite Castle's claims that RISC OS 3.71 and 5 is on the table, if their competitors want it. We'll have to wait for things to pan out, as always, especially as MicroDigital remind us that their next Omega upgrade will be the much speculated XScale 2nd processor.
