WTB: Cyberstorm PPC
« on: May 27, 2011, 05:53:25 PM »
In the next few weeks I might be in the market for a CSPPC to put in my A3000.

Anyone want to part with theirs? PM me with offers please.

I'd like to have a ppc accelerator for my A4000 too but I don't see it ever happening. you may as well just buy a Sam460 1ghz is way better than 160mhz anyway.

I've got several MOS compatible Macs and a Pegasos 1, but A1's and Sams don't appeal to me at all for some reason.

PPC in my A3000 would scratch an itch though.

I'd consider part exchanging my CS060 Mk2 for a CSPPC btw.

I've a Cyberstore PPC in my A3000 that I think I'm getting ready to part with.  It's an 060@60mhz, 233mhz PPC, with 128mb@60ns (pretty much the highest specs one can get with this card).  I too had an itch a few years ago that caused me to drop $$$$.  When I was just a punk kid I could never afford one of these!

Anyway, I've had fun with it and gotten it out of my system.  It now sits on the shelf and I only bust it out a couple time a year.

I rationalized the purchase by telling myself that I'd be able to get most of my money back when I went to sell.  For that reason I'd need at least $1,300 USD.  I know there can be hostile sentiment around these parts when someone asks a high price for old Amiga stuff; I'm certainly not looking to profit from this.  Let me know if you have any interest.

Not to bag on you in any way - that's about an average price for one.

I have to disagree, though I think the cyberstorm ppc is very valuable $1300 is stretching it. $1k is good

Wow! If they're worth that much why hasn't somebody figured out how to clone them?

Simple. So far it has cost to much in both time and money for little or no return on investment. Look how much the SAM's cost and be glad they are even available at all. Those are probably as close as you will get for a while.

I don't know. The cost of the components on a Cyberstorm PPC aren't anywhere near that high.
I'm not sure what the market would be, but if Jens can still find buyers for 68K accelerators there ought to be a market for PPC accelerators.

I used to think that the A3000/T and A4000/T CPU connectors were these rare beasts but somewhere in my multi-hundreds of bookmarks I've got a source for the pin edge connectors for those things.

I think the A1200 edge connectors are a bit harder to source though (they probably have to be custom built)
