RiscPC

The following is from Wikipedia:

In 2003 it was confirmed that no more Risc PCs would be produced. However RISC OS computers based on other ARM processors machines have been manufactured by companies since this date.

  • Castle Technology - Iyonix PC based on the Intel XScale ARM processor and PCI bus.
  • Advantage 6 - A9Home based on the Samsung S3C2440 ARM processor
  • RiscStation - R7500 based on the ARM7500-FE processor.
Second-hand Risc PCs command very high prices relative to PCs of similar age and specifications. Significantly better performance has been pulled out of the aged Risc PC design by using the newer 203 (and later 236) MHz StrongARM CPU, using third-party video cards, overclocking, and having specially-designed CPU cards with RAM located upon them to sidestep the speed bottleneck of the slow system bus.
