One small micro-controller which costs $6.83 each in batches of 100+ is only available for delivery at the end of 2023. Although it can be purchased now from another trade supplier for the extortionate price of ~$420 each. The original A1222 board designer confirmed that he is experiencing problems with the supply of similar chip components for his current projects

Same old same old. When it's done! ;D

Yes,  Discouraging.  I read 3/4 of Vultures to Vampires and it brought back all the memories of hopes that the Amiga would rise again.  I remember going through Commodore Bankruptcy, Escom, Gateway, Amiga inc fiasco.  Not much has changed.  I remember meeting Jason Compton and Eric Schwartz at an Amiga show in Dayton, OH in 1995.  Jason was giving a live update about the bankruptcy.  The book was good but VERY depressing!  I am reluctant to buy Volume II.

On a brighter note, I have built my X5040 and been using it months now.  I got notice yesterday from Acube that my SAM460LE will ship today or tomorrow.  Just waiting for the shipping notification.   So even if Tabor is not moving forward, others are.

FYI, I received my tracking this morning for my SAM460LE.  So ACUBE is definitely keeping things moving along!

Can the original X5000 be upgraded to the 5040 easily?

No, Trevor confirmed that the CPUs cannot be simply swapped out/upgraded during his Amiga37 slot with ACube.

Agreed, time and cost would not make it viable at all.

I'm enjoying it a lot. It works so much nicer than UAE emulation of AmigaOS4.1, way nicer.

I'm very impressed how responsive it is.

I'm very happy Acube made those despite all supplies issues. I'm surprised shipment of the first batch is not making news 😔.

This thread is about A1222, not Sam460LE.

There is NO movement on the A1222 now because there is a small component that they cannot source! They cannot redesign the board (again) so it's a rock and a hard place for Trevor and Co. at the moment! It feels like the P.A. Semi debacle all over again! They had to beg, steal and borrow to get enough PA6T-1682M CPUs for the X1000 and now they have to do the same to source a $6 micro-controller for the A1222 Plus!! They need more than luck to save the AmigaOne project IMHO!

At least ACube have provided a stop-gap solution. I see no reason why this good news of people getting their Sams can't be shared here! If the A1222 Plus had been delivered in a timely manner I don't think ACube would have stepped in with the Sam460LE! The two machine ARE iintertwined! ACube commissioned a special final run of the CPU especially for this batch of Sams! It is again ridiculously unlucky that they have been delivered some faulty ethernet controllers which is holding up the delivery of some of the units. The fact that they spotted this issue prior to shipping to customers shows that their QA is second to none and that they DO care about their customers.

I almost forgot why I created this thread.

I waited for A1222, but got Sam460le. Same difference for me.
