The Icon Bar Technology news and views Wakefield Acorn & RISC OS Show, 16th April 2016 http://www.iconbar.co.uk/comments/rss/news1310.html RISC OS SouthWest Show 2016 http://www.iconbar.co.uk/comments/rss/news1309.html Mysterious new product to be announced at London Show the day before London show http://www.iconbar.co.uk/comments/rss/news1308.html In a surprise announcement, ROOL have revealed the existence of "Titanium", a new RISC OS machine based around a dual-core Cortex-A15 SoC. No - it's not CJE's dual-core Cortex A15 IGEPv5 machine - it's an entirely new board design produced by Elesar Limited, and utilising TI's 1.5GHz AM5728 (a cousin of the also-1.5GHz TI OMAP5 used in the IGEPv5). And unlike the IGEPv5 or the Wandboard (as used in R-Comp's ARMX6), which are technically meant to be for embedded or developer/prototyping markets, the Titanium board seems to be aimed squarely at the desktop PC and server markets - it utilises the standard ATX form factor and power connector, has dual DVI video output, dual gigabit Ethernet, four SATA ports, eight USB 2 ports, and even two PCI-E slots.
