Cool, now make sure that you get OS4.1 to it, and the target price.

Also, make sure that it hits the market soooon!

And give us something more than a schematics picture, what about a prototype pic?

Troika has never released anything other than fake pictures for fake developer boards.  This is just more of the same and the specs they're quoting for this "new" board are the same ones they mentioned a few years back.  Just change the dates and they're talking the same old crap.  I wish the site admins would ban them from posting their crap here.

We need a little bit more than this picture to believe you this time, but if this is true and you really can come up with this board and get os4.1 ported to it, well then i could be interested

Why are everyone complaining? This is $300-350 is much cheaper than the Sam board, which i thought would be a good thing for the Amiga community?

Cheaper hardware running OS4.x is always a good thing in my opinion.
I still have high doubts about it ever being released considering their previous broken promises though.
I really think they should have waited until they had something real to show though. Even a working prototype running linux would help.

If this was genesi i am sure everyone would be jumping with joy. :-P

Yes, but nothing priced at $300-500 is a lot, IMO.

Are you sure they aren't PCI-EXPRESS ones?


walmart.com doe shave some typos in their item headlines, but the DO have old-school PCI graphics cards. You can get them elsewhere as well.

(and that Radeon 9250 above is the Radeon that is most supported for OS4.1 compositing!)

Newegg currently has 47!! PCI graphics cards

Amazon's PCI category also lists PCI-Expres cards, but they have a variety. I won't list the antique ATI Rage cards there, but here's some Radeons, including an HD2400!

There are still lots of PCI graphics cards out there.

Has Troika ever released a manufactured product before?



if i remember correct hyperion denied troika a licence for aos4.1......

and that is understanable, a unseriouse bs vapor company like troika will never get any licence.
