New Sam460cr boards will hit the road soon!
« on: December 24, 2020, 12:14:18 PM »
ACube Systems is happy to see a new update for AmigaOS and MorphOS. We would like to make a small party with Amiga users in these difficult times.
We then decided to make a small gift to the Amiga and MorphOS Community.

To celebrate the recent release of AmigaOS 4.1 FE Update 2 and MorphOS 3.14, we built a small batch of Sam460cr boards that will be available with a Christmas bundle of the following games:
Gorky17
Descent Freespace
The Secret of Middle City
BOH

The whole bundle will be at 489 Euros.
OS 4.1 FE is included in this product.

We will be ready for shipping in january 2021.

We are also preparing a new shop that will be up to the standards.

Available soon so stay tuned!

This is pretty cool. How well does MorphOS run on this? Is it possible to dual boot? What about graphics drivers?

Wow, that’s a great price for an OS4 system. I hope they find their way to good homes. :)

Yeah, nice offer indeed.

Do note, though, that it's not a "system" (as including case, drives, peripheral cards, keyboard, and mouse), but the board itself plus OS4.

Best regards,

Niels

I also doubt videocards are available from stock in places like Amazon that would work with the Sam460. I hope Acube have a hoard of them available.

Update: I have checked ACube's site, and when still available, a few years ago, a Sam460cr 1 Ghz cost €469. Of course, no games, but Amiga OS4.1 was included. So I guess the prices haven't really changed.

Not quite correct .

Radeon Plolaris RX550 & Rx560 video cards will work but there is no driver on the AmigaOS4.1 FE CD.
In order to install without another working AmigaOS 4.1 system the user would have to boot and install with another video card that has a supported driver on the AmigaOS4.1 FE CD. A Radeon HD5450 for example .
Then install the purchased Radeon RX driver. And then install the Radeon RX video card .

What might be hardener to find are working supported PCIex1 audio cards unless a driver update is done for the CMI8738 card which certain version cause a lockup . PCIex1 Envyht24 based cards are scarce .

The SIL3114 and SIL3112 PCI SATA cards are readily available. Not so the Sil3512 which is the most compatible .

Is it possible to add the driver to the disc? I don't have old graphic cards lying around.

I hope they make a complete bundle available as it is not an ideal situation to go hunting for old hardware hoping it works.

If the dealer sells the system with a harddrive it might already be installed when delivered to the customer.

A bootable USB thumbdrive similar to the X5000 one could be suppled with the video Drivers included also as an opton.

Is there no way a basic radeon driver could provide (S)VGA graphics with any ATI chipset?

I thought the CR does have onboard graphics? Isn't it only the SATA and sound chip that's removed?

Edit: I was wrong sorry.

Hi, that is good news for people who like me who want a lower cost entry into an NG Amiga with the Tabor nowhere to be seen...
Are there plans to offer pre built systems on your site. I can see their listed but out of stock.

Thanks Spud  8)

So with the SATA controller presumably removed, what are you supposed to connect the harddisk to?
