Performance of the Hope Badge Computer

I’ve just managed to get some key components working this year, and as a result, the machine is becoming more usable.

I wanted to measure the performance of this Frankenstein machine. Ideally, I’d use standardized benchmarks but I don’t really have a compilation toolchain setup yet. I’m mostly stuck using 68K assembly.

Glenn Keller, Commodore Amiga Paula chip designer

"The Guru Mediation" did an interview with Glenn Keller, former engineer at Commodore, designer of the Paula chip, which is responsible for the Amiga's sound capabilities, serial port, and floppy disc drive interface.

Mr. Keller is a very nice guy, it's a pleasure listening to his ancedotes and information. He talks about the early days of Amiga development, the unreleased AAA chipset, and the longevity and revival of the Amiga system, among other topics.

Thanks to "The Guru Mediation" for the interview, and Mr. Keller for taking the time!
