I am sure these are some of the rarest PPC items that can be used with an A2000 and that places this on my number 1 must have list.
My A2000/2060 is my favorite machine so far and she is currently maxed out, except for this little PPC gem..

Could we convince you to post an A2000 PPC video?

I'm sorry - I just had to resurrect this sexy old post! This Prototype PPC board is just too cool. Looking for some PIII's I thought I had, I stumbled upon an old G3 processor instead. An XSC7400 to be exact.

Anyone have a spare Phase5 PPC board sitting around collecting dust or can I just plug this puppy in to the 060 slot and away we go?   :lol:   (kidding)

What's needed to make it fit... well...

You need a CPU slot reiser to give it clearance from the motherboard (might work with soldering the 68000 CPU directly to the motherboard and get rid of the sokket cause it's that close to fit "stock" but a reiser is preferred as to prevent misshaps).

For the drivebay, a slight modification is needed on the drivebay itself but nothing that prevents you from using both a 5.25" Unit and 2 floppys though (left hand floppydrive might need it's drivecover altered though).

Ow and yes... it does work. :-D

If it do work it is perhapps worth removing that drive bay in order for the 2KPPC but somehow i doubt it works but i have been supriced before right :-)

Does it actually work though?

Looks like the combo doesn't leave enough clearance space for the whole thing to be plugged in to the accelerator slot. I think the PPC part would hit the drive bay.

If only these boards had been mass-produced. Probably would have been a great shot in the arm back in 1997/1998. Sigh...

Now get a cpu-slot adapter for an A1000 and probably have the most powerful retro-amiga ever :-)
