The name of a Risc
computer produced by Castle Technology
and successor to the Risc PC
. It runs on a 300MHz StrongARM Processor
. This may not sound much but due to the wonders of Risc
techniques it feels more like 1Ghz
while at the same time being all but silent.
The Kinetic comes with Risc OS installed on ROM and so boots up almost instantly, a joy to behold. It is also available with Linux preinstalled.
The Kinetic has been succeded by the Iyonix a newer model of Risc computer.
