Good news this. Great for everyone I think. OS4/AROS/MOS all could run on this one way or the other.

Guess I need to start saving some money either for this or a good deal on older board... always wanted one - just pricey for what it is!

Still going to be expensive with a cost of around 600-650 euros , and not to forget the AOS4 that will total you around 750 euro or $1011US.  I'll have to pass on my opportunity to have an AOS4 machine.

I really like this. But the price... ummm... I want to say I could justify it....BUT....

I CAN'T...

I will pray to the retro-Gods for a $300-600 wondermachine worthy of the name AMIGA!

A real board as opposed to the X1000. I don't think we'll be seeing the X1000 this year, probably not ever.

Well this is most suprising, I'd figured that ACube would be leaving the Amiga market after the X1000 was launched but they seem to be in it for the long run.

Nice board, it was what most of us were expecting and hoping for since the Flex came out ;)

A couple of comments about the specs:

Not sure why they bothered with on-board GFX/Audio?
Looks like it's only only got one SATA port (and even that gets disabled if you use the PCI-e 1x slot)?

You have to wonder what Hyperion's support will be like for this new board when they also have to update OS4.1 for the X1000?
Life begins at 100 MIPS!


Nice Ports on AmiNet!

Interesting... Maybe I am reading too much into this, but no mention of OS4 license and availability for this board?

Where do you get that bullshit from? Are you accusing hyperion of lying through their teeth??

I doubt we have to worry about license now that amiga inc is out of the picture. I am more curious about how long it will take to port it to this board.
