R-Comp offers RISC OS emulation solutionBy Chris Williams. Published: 10th Oct 2003, 17:45:54 | Permalink | Printable
Look, it's a PC in a small boxWant to run RISC OS on a Windows PC but you're not sure which Wintel hardware to get? Hot on the heels of Advantage Six's offering, R-Comp have launched their RISCube PC system. The RISCube features a 1GHz+ processor, 256Mb DDR RAM, 40GB hard disc, high speed CD Rewriter and DVD drive. Great.
The RISCube uses emulation to run RISC OS 4 and RISC OS software on the WindowsXP host OS. The machine presumably uses VirtualRPC although there's no specific reference to it. The RISCube does include R-Comp's UniPrint system and claims the emulation system beats StrongARM RiscPC speeds.
"We are very conscious that there are companies producing excellent desktop ARM-based RISC OS machines, and we would urge those looking for a stand-alone RISC OS computer to check out the Iyonix and the Omega", R-Comp stress in their announcement.
