Announcement from Andrew Rawnsley, 6th May, 2015.
To elaborate on such a bold statement as “created for use in Holland”, we should explain that one of our commercial partners who required the development of the powerful new ARMX6 hardware is based in Holland, and runs a sizeable number of the computers all-day, every-day. We’ll no doubt explain more at the event this weekend.
As well as the ARMX6 itself, we’re embracing the enthusiast feel of the Big Ben Club show with affordable “DIY kits” for the i.MX6 (which powers the ARMX6). These provide all the bits needed to boot to a complete RISC OS desktop, and a full disc image, updates and so on. Each kit is tested here first, to ensure that it boots smoothly and can access the internet etc. From there, a user need only add power and an SSD of their choice to enjoy the full experience.
The ARMX6 computer is the new generation of desktop RISC OS computer. The only system to offer hardware gigabit ethernet, standard SATA disc connectivity for high speed disc data transfer (SSDs etc), and stunning high definition 1080p/1200p+ digital graphics and beyond.
With a strong emphasis on stability, ARMX6 is designed to deliver the kind of all-day operation that RISC OS computers have been known for back to the RiscPC era. From the start, its design specification was to be the next generation replacement for computers like the Iyonix, and that’s exactly what it has achieved for its commercial customers and many more users both here in the UK and abroad.
We look forward to demonstrating it to everyone at the show!
