These guys just might be the real deal. If you watch the video on their YouTube page, they show an outline of (what appears to be) a Blizzard PPC card, which gradually populates with copper layers and vias

They wouldn't (normally) have access to this sort of thing without the sources
ya checked that out too and wow it would be great if Phase 5 comes back and starts making new hardware for our miggies again:hammer: low end to highest end kit has always been top notch from Phase 5 over the years

Edge Connectors

I posed the question as to where they are getting the edge connectors from and they claim to have an overseas company involved. I wonder if Majsta is aware of this or even if he has a source yet.

imagine if they could make one with an fpga core on it. They might have a manufacturer doing a limited run on the connectors but I doubt they will be persuading Motorola to be fabbing a run of '060s .

Theres a lot of interesting stuff going on in the world of Amiga hardware at the moment and everyone should be sharing ideas or at least aiming for a common configuration that eliminates all no-longer available parts.

Apollo + Individual + Phase 5 + Aeon would love to see a future roadmap for these guys!

God I love you guys, such endless optimism.

I think when a company goes into liquidation (depends on the country of course, but there are some general facts that apply to most) not everyone has the same priority. It is very possible that whatever authority (state ?) took care of the liquidation considered the boards as inventory. Just a possibility that I wouldn't be surprised considering how some country's authorities handle this type of thing..

Since Motorola (or Freescale) isn't around anymore that could be a problem (and you ought to see the prices the new 68020s are commanding - personally it all looks tailored to replacements for legacy military and aerospace applications).
While NXP might not be interested, there are still a far number of '60s around for limited runs.

I would see this a someone using the existing board designs update to be Weee compliant etc and maybe directly soldering the memory to the board.

It looks more like a 030 or 060 board as it has the side connector for the SCSI module which the BlizzardPPC does not have.

They can always license the 68080 from Apollo Team. Imagine that... a PPC with Apollo CORE AND PPC.

That would be awesome, I'd be interested, as long as  noone sends them money with preorders :)

Well, well. If this turns out to be legit, the clues so far point to new production runs of the Blizzard 1260, 2060, and Cyberstorm MK3. We could certainly do with a few more of those boards kicking around...
