One interesting historical note about the Hyperion is its use by Commodore as the basis for Commodore's first generation of PC clones. According to George Robbins, ex-Commodore engineer:
GR> Commodore actually bought rights to the Hyperion design and there were GR> a couple floating around West Chester. The design served as the basis GR> for the first 8088 based PC-clones that Commodore manufactured, though GR> they ended up in normal desktop cases. The next generation was based GR> much more directly on the IBM PC's (probably for 100% compatibility) GR> then we started making our own customer chips/asic to get the cost down GR> before switching to industry standard "chipsets" for 286-486 designs. GR> In the end it was cheaper to just buy and resell clones from HK. GR> GR> On of my tasks at Commodore before the Amiga stuff took over was to GR> make a comparison of the Hyperion design and our current PC design to GR> "prove" that we weren't using any of the Hyperion proprietary design GR> features and there was no reason we should continue paying them GR> royalties on every PC we sold. 8-)
There is a Hyperion listed in Jim Brain's "Canonical List of Commodore Products". George Robbins says that Commodore never manufactured Hyperions, but that Commodore Canada may have made a deal with Dynalogic to sell Commodore branded Hyperions. If anyone has seen a Commodore-branded Hyperion I'd love to hear about it!
