@WoDK

There are some reputable people on the team so I doubt it is a joke but whether they come out with anything in a timely fashion may prove to be another matter. It may be vaporware, or it may come out and prove to be expensive, or it may prove to be something useful. There is nothing definitive about it yet.

Treat it all as vapourware until it's released I say! It definately could be another ABox, Boxer or Troika Amy 05

Or it could turn out to be another C-One or Minimig (in essence, not function). Que sera, sera.

I have no doubt that it exists, and that good people are working on it. It's a hobby project though, so it'll be done when it's done. Who knows when.

Man, I remember the BoXeR, or at least what it was supposed to be. Anyone seen Mick Tinker since he last announced a "release date?"

Like the shark PPC...

I'm not sure what you're on about.

Read the natami forums. The developers have jobs and busy lives, but they do update reasonably often. They've never stated a deadine, but they have posted pictures and stuff.

I'll be happy if/when it's released.

Yes, it's all true, at least it is in the minds and in the will of the people involved.

What is it about?
They are creating a new 68K Amiga with an FPGA (Programmable gate array... you can view it as a blank board on wich you can creat your own chips).
The goal is to create an evolution of the 68k family, the 68070 and an evolution of the AGA chipset, the SAGA (Super AGA) with built in 3D GPU and enhanced 2D Copper-Blitter.
Theorically it should become something comparable to a Play II, with a slightly less powerful CPU.

I'm almost sure it's the product of my dreams i will buy one as a nice REV is available.
On the paper it's the perfect Amiga 1500 / 5000

Even if it never amounts to anything, I'm sure the folks working on the project are having fun designing and talking about it. This is a hobby, after all.

I'm interested in following natami developments because it is yet another indication of the very talented Amiga community.

If the GFX FPGA is released someday, I hope we see a super low cost PPC SoC machine built around it. SAM440epLite (or SAM460Lite)

I think the aim of Natami is to stay a 68k based machine.
No PPC support is planned.

Well, there was kind of a "deadline", end of last years summer was it...

But then the "redesign" came, and now everybody is still waiting...

I wish them the best of luck, though...
