PCI graphics?  AGP is difficult enough to find these days.

This is how the Boxer started. The spec was always a couple of steps behind the technology curve, and just about viable for the consumer, in the Boxers' case it was ISA cards. Then, just as  ISA cards became impossible to find, the spec was changed to PCI. The same will happen with this platform.

PCI, AGP, ISA, ... right now I'd settle for about anything running Amiga OS4. Would be nice if it was demoed 'running' at the show.

Looks interesting, though I've a few gripes.

I think soldering the CPU direct to the motherboard is a stupid idea, it's probably the single most expensive part on the board with the most contacts to be made, if a mistake is made while placing it you run the risk of not only it being lost but also the motherboard.  Why not attach it to a little daughterboard instead ?  Would also allow a purchaser to upgrade in the future by buying a new CPU on a daughterboard from yourself.

Also will you be selling the motherboard with an ATX backshield thing ?  (the bit that the USB ports etc poke through when it's put in a case)  The way you've done the speaker ports doesn't look standard so people would have to do some nasty hacking to get things to line up in a case.

Just my 2cents :-)

Even if it´s only showing the bios setup it would be very nice

Yes PLX bridges, i worked with that in time (ex Hint Corp).
But how do y manage to plug Video graphic card, Voodoo TV FM card, Scsi2 card, one more network card... ? have you planned a design with 5 or more pci slot ?

I read that this is supposed to be what the A500
was... it's supposed to be as cheap as possible
while still being a nice computer. It's not meant
to be a high-end computer.

It all depens on what you want. If you want something
better, wait. Also be prepared to pay more ;-)

Am I the only one who's thinking the routing is a bit odd (90 degree traces, lots of vias at strange places, traces going to nowhere without a visible via (could be the picture though), visible second layer (instead of ground plane), too few traces in total?) and the placement of the components (e.g. memory very far away from the bridges and the CPU).

No, I'm not saying that these pictures are fake. I'm rather wondering if with this level of engineering knowledge, the board will survive a smoke test, not thinking about eventually working at all.
