Hasn't that always been his role? Connecting ideas, connecting people, connecting businesses?

When he visited Tilburg he was promoting the “MSX revival” with the 1chipMSX, touting the FPGA as a spiritual successor of the MSX-ENGINE SOC approach, so I can’t see how he was not involved.

At that time, MSX users and designers of 1chipMSX wanted a new MSX computer, but Nishi was testing the waters for another product that I don't remember. I think he was just a ESE factory's guest.

1Chip is a great project, but Nishi wasn't directly involved, right?

Probably just as involved as he is in the current plans, don't you think? Anyhow, I don't see anything coming from this. To me, it looks like an older man trying to hold on to his diehard fans, only to relive something of his former glory. I also don't like him being approachable on Twitter and such. I just want him to be the hero he is ^_^

100,000 Yen is over £650, far too expensive, unless it is very special. No doubt there will be VAT and import duties to add to that.

99,800 yen was effectively the official price of the Panasonic MSX Turbo-R FS-A1 GT. I had a purchase project that I retain and I would take this new model from Mr. Nishi if it comes out in 2022. It's quite close so either he finds interested investors or in any case the means to manufacture or the project will be canceled. I can't wait to know the final specs and the download system. Exciting. Wink

Isn't msx3 just a virtual hardware spec since the nineties;
msx2 + 512KB + HDD + OPL4

I didn't know it, then we can consider that Nishi was supporting 1Chip. Now the question is how much capacity he has to make the same with MSX3.

It should be more like MSX Turbo R + 2Mb RAM (at least) + HDD / SD + OPL4... even you can add SymbOS to have a new interface. But it's only that, a virtual MSX3.

Dual-Cores ARM Cortex A9 MPCore
Zynq-7010 SoC with onchip FPGA with:
2.1 Mb RAM
28k logic cells
80 DSP slices
100 I/O pins
up to 866MHz
DDR3, USB2.0

+ 96 cores in extended version

This all in alluminium case (like notebook in low-end version)
No SCC, but PSG (probably with moonsound)

Cost less than 100.000 JPY in first half of 2022.

This is an official design?
