« on: February 15, 2022, 07:51:53 AM »
Hi everyone,

Just visited the website of ACube and it is now possible to pre-order a Sam460LE!  :)

Wrote a post about it on my blog here: https://amigaos4gaming.wordpress.com/2022/02/15/sam460le-1-10-ghz-pre-order/

More info here: https://shop.acube-systems.biz/sam-motherboards/122-sam460ex.html

The Sam460LE bundle contains:

Micro-ATX form factor motherboard, with enough space for double slot graphic cards ;-)
MicroSD Slot at the rear of the board, so it can operated from the back.
1 backplate

and more...

First I thought that I buy one right a way, but then I realiced, that 289€ is just for a preorder.

Total prize with VAT is :

902€

That is just no way! It is perfectly possible produce PPC hardware much more cheaper prices. That has been proven many times.

And this even doesn't have ram included!

no one is forcing you to buy one... and bear in mind it is not manufactured in China as everything else you have at hand

I pre-ordered mine. Still good price, considering I can run Amiga OS 4.1 quite well. Right now I have A1200... 060 + Mediator. It will be night and day difference.

Exactly. I had BPPC and Amiga OS4.1 worked and nothing more. What is today price of BPPC? Considering that perspective Sam460 is amazing 😍. Sam460 is perfectly fine for basic work with Amiga OS4.1 for sure. BTW. How many MIPS SAM460 has? I can't find any benchmarks, like Sam460 vs CPPC etc.
