First of.. I don't know so much about the "new" amiga..
But they do
have one "state-of-the-art" thingy.. The OS isn't anything like Windows.. IE.. It don't need 512Mb+ memory to "work".. But at the same time it gets the job done well..
And the cpu is PowerPC(?).. The same that MAC uses now, and the newest Power Mac G5 are "only" running at ~2GHz so..
Here's a clip from apple:
The PowerPC G5 processor dramatically accelerates performance in real world applications. When compared head-to-head against PCs in a large series of Photoshop tests, the dual 2.5GHz, dual 2GHz, dual 1.8GHz and single 1.8GHz Power Mac G5 systems ran the 45 filters 98%, 82%, 66% and 20% faster, respectively, than the 3.4GHz Pentium 4-based system and 75%, 63%, 48% and 11% faster than the dual 3.2GHz Xeon-based system
The down side of things are the price of the new amiga1.. It costs way to much I think..
Side Note: Why do AMD cpus have lower clock speed than P4.. But perform the same??
GHz isn't everything...
