Hi anonymous guest!

The FPGAs in the Omega can be clocked at well over 200MHz. AFAIK the reason to stick with 33MHz-PCI was that a lot of PCI cards do not work with higher frequencies.

SDRAM is not obsolete at all, it has a much lower latency than DDR-SDRAM.

I don't see where my point on compatability is pushing it. Show me an Iyonix wich I can use for serious sound- and video-editing. I have an Omega here on my desk, wich does it perfectly, running ProSound, StudioSound and CineWorks.

And there is nothing "magical" about reprogramming FPGAs at run-time. It's just really useful.

  • Prototype affordable Braille display in development
    A low-cost computer-controlled Braille board has been prototyped by a RISC OS-using university student. Undergraduate Edward Rogers hopes to sell his completed units for as little as 200 quid each to schools and families to allow more blind children to continue learning Braille. And he said he wanted to launch his venture using RISC OS-powered kit before offering a package for other platforms.
