With custom-made hardware and an interesting proposition, Ataribox is Atari's new move
A new Atari console due to paint on the market in 2018, Ataribox, as it is being called, seeks to redesign the classic Ataris and bring, in addition to a retro console (as did Nintendo), also bring an entertainment system based on on Linux.
2018 should bring Ataribox to market, it will use an AMD APU with a Linux-based operating system to bring entertainment and nostalgia to consumers. The idea that it works like an Android TV Box, similar to what we have today, with an open code system so people can do whatever they want with it.
In statement Atari general manager Feargal Mac Conuladh commented:
"People are used to the flexibility of a PC, but most of the devices we connect to TV today have closed systems and self-contained stores. Ataribox is an open system, and despite our user interface being simple to use, people I will have the freedom to customize the operating system. "
Theoretically, we will have an AMD chip tailored to it, as well as its drivers for Linux. The design that resembles a "modern retr" should appeal to many people who will want it in their living rooms.
