hardware OS4   hardware OS4 : New CPU Modules: Estimated Availability June 19/2006
   posted by ackcontrls on 23-Apr-2006 15:30:37 (61777 reads)
ACK Software Controls, Inc. is pleased to announce the upcoming availability of two new AmigaOne XE CPU modules. The first CPU module will be equipped with a Freescale MC7448 CPU clocked at 1GHz. The 1GHz module will retail for $500.00 US Dollars. The second CPU module will be equipped with a Freescale MC7448 clocked at 1.7GHz will retail for $850.00 US Dollars. Both CPU modules will be eqipped with a high quality heatsink and fan to ensure quiet, reliable operation.

Prototype modules will be demonstrated May 22/2006. The location for this demonstration has yet to be determined. Due to the low volume nature of these products, emails indicating demand for either of the two units is greatly appreciated. Stay tuned for updates.

Sincerely,

Adam Kowalczyk

compatible with A1-C I wonder? I thought it was the same sort of connector on XE as A1-C.

It has a lot to do with economies of scale. I'm pretty sure Apple CPU modules as well as the 3rd party CPU modules aren't built in such small volumes that I'm anticipating.

@Adam

Great. As you can see, there are alot of people interested in your work. We are eager to hear something about an OS4 capable board.

Excellent news . Hmmmm didnt Eyetech have some micro and XE boards around with CPU modules as the only missing component ???
Are these modules developed in colaboration with Rose Amont or is that a different story?

This is great news.

Unfortunately, as much as I'd love to have a 1.7GHz G4, it's out of my price range. Can I trade in my 800 MHz G4 for a big discount? Please?

This has been in the works on and off for quite some time. The work has all been based on reverse engineering all the dead CPU modules that have come my way. As it was starting to appear that there were a number of people in need of CPUs and looking for some extra horsepower, it was time to get the ball rolling.

Do you have running prototypes? Any benchmarks? Waht kind of speed increase can people expect?

PS Don't have a A1, but would buy one 1,7GHz if i had one.

Well, this is great news for AmigaOne people! I'm still hopefully waiting for the A4000 and A1200 PowerVixxen.

Keep up the great work Adam!

@hans: i'm really sure others with dead XE cpu's that cannot afford the update may offer you a good deal by purchasing your old cpu.

I could be interested in that module myself if it's cheap enough...

A bit expensive, but I'm seriously thinking about buying one.

Thank you, Adam!
