Update on the "Summer Follies" offer

The 533 Mhz Sam version is currently Sold Out!!!

The response from customers was overwhelming.

We wish to thank all the customers who took the opportunity to buy a Sam board at this very low price.

The regular Sam 667 Mhz version is still available, at a small discount, now at Euro 465 including 512 MB DDR ram (taxes and shipping excluded).

I did contact Acube almost directly after the news about OS4.1 and SAM, but I havent heard anything from them..

Will you answer those poor ones who responded too late?

If they ran-out of stock so quickly, they are obviously trying to dump their inventory, before replacing it with a newer (and better) version... My first guess is that the Flex mobo is virtually ready for sale.

With only a few boards left I am very interested in what will be shown and announced at Pianetta. I have an A1 but I would buy a Flex if I knew there were solutions on 2 matters:

1. that a suitable graphics solution is available, considering no one manufactures for PCI or AGP graphics any more.

Interestingly, since Flex was going to be available in August, and has not yet, I suspect a new version may appear with say, a PCI express slot.

2. a suitable driver for OS 4.1 for the zigbee option were available.

It is this that would make the big difference for me because I want to be able to monitor remotely various transducers round the place. I am told that this can be done through USB anyway, so with a suitable driver I could go into action with the A1, but is anyone going to do this for the A1? We, in Auckland, are interested in the same questions for a new club machine.

So ACube do you have answers on these points? I hope to hear them from Pianetta.

Noel

ACube's primary mission must be continual cost reduction on the 440 line. Take a look at the motherboard pictures of the flex versus the original. There are a lot less components. With no more video on-board they have pulled out a big chunk of cost.

I wouldn't be surprised to see the flex version priced the same as or below the 533mhz "clearout" version.

One would also hope ACube are working on a next-generation product that gives more bang for the buck. A product based on the AMCC 460EX (just hitting the market now) is an obvious next step. That chip goes up to 1.2Ghz, has a 256K cache and supports DDR2 memory among other niceties.

Well, at least I arrived to the offer, now I wait the OS 4.1 and that it works in the Sam to 533 Mhz.
