adrianl:My understanding is that porting to x86 would terminally break the vast majority of existing apps - most of which are no longer being developed. That seems a sure fire way to finally kill off the OS to me .
P.S. And presumably the same effort would have to be made in a year or two when the rest of the world moves to 64 bit? And the next change after that and so on...
A guide to overclocking Kinetic and StrongARM CPU cards Charlie Lane has compiled a package of notes and photos on overclocking various StrongARM processer cards, including Castle Kinetics, for RiscPCs. Overclocking is the process of ramping up the digital timing signals of the computer to force the processor to work faster. Charlie told us: "I thought it would be fun to investigate the possibilities of speeding up my Kinetic RiscPC - only to find suitable information on Kinetic cards was rather hard to come by so I set about working it out for myself." Note: Follow the instructions entirely at your own risk. 9 comments, latest by rjek on 20/1/09 4:23PM. Published: 6 Jan 2009
