hardware OS4   hardware OS4 : New Sam460cr boards will hit the road soon!
   posted by elwood on 24-Dec-2020 12:12:06 (1379 reads)
ACube Systems is happy to see a new update for AmigaOS and MorphOS. We would like to make a small party with Amiga users in these difficult times.
We then decided to make a small gift to the Amiga and MorphOS Community.

To celebrate the recent release of AmigaOS 4.1 FE Update 2 and MorphOS 3.14, we built a small batch of Sam460cr boards that will be available with a Christmas bundle of the following games:
Gorky17
Descent Freespace
The Secret of Middle City
BOH

The whole bundle will be at 489 Euros.
OS 4.1 FE is included in this product.

We will be ready for shipping in january 2021.

We are also preparing a new shop that will be up to the standards.

Available soon so stay tuned!

@thread

Anyone care to place a wager on how fast these sell out? I'm betting one week or less and they're gone. Wonderful news, ACube! Great to see you back in production!

When will the proper mainstream A1222 Plus batch be available? How long is life? When will Jesus return? Will Covid-19 mutate to point where the vaccines wont work?

Id say if you want to jump into the AmigaOS with a few great games included you might as well buy a Sam while were all still young!

It's funny. I sold my SAM 460 lite six years ago thinking I would get a new OS4.x machine within a year. I wanted something that could play videos off of the internet. The SAM lite could not handle video. The X3500 never went into production. The A1222 never showed up. The X5000 was way out of my price range. I may just get another SAM to put in my empty Checkmate A1500+. With the new video drivers using the GPU for video, the SAM 460CR should fly pretty fast.
In all of this time that I have been waiting for a new and improved OS 4.x machine, so many options for AROS and AmigaOS 3.x have been brought to market. I've held out for an OS 4.x machine due to the amount of software I've bought for it. With the last A1222 delay mentioned, I almost jumped ship. A SAM 460CR could keep me in the OS4.x community. Yet, if I get a SAM 460CR, I won't get an A1222. This hardware decision by ACube will hurt A-Eon sales. Of course, A-Eon's multiple delays and CPU choice may have already killed the A1222 market.

... and what does that add to the price for a fair comparison?

Twenty to thirty pounds for both the SATA and sound card depending on where you source them.

Nice! For anyone who wants to buy a custom-made, sort-of "low-cost" board with support for both PPC Amiga flavours these are good news.

Hi Everyone!

This is great news. I am going to get one of these and I am in the early Tabor batch as well. I want them all! I love my AmigaOne 500 and looking forward to another Sam board. Acube, make a good amount of these, I think they will sell out quickly.

OlafS25: Yes, that's why "cr" is in the name.

It seems to me that A-Eon is doing its best to hurt their sales all by themselves, to be honest... and that shouldn't hold others from selling and buying hardware as they feel.

Is it possible to dual boot AOS and MOS on these boards?

@AmigaMac

Yes, you can dual-boot AmigaOS 4.1 and MorphOS on a Sam460.

Epsilon wrote an article about setting it up:

Nice to see ACube back with a run of Sam boards. I think the CR version makes more sense, I sold my full 460 a couple of years back but never really used the built in graphics or sound.
