Hardware News   Hardware News : New Sam440ep-flex at 733 Mhz
   posted by elwood on 24-Jun-2009 21:45:44 (18478 reads)
Bassano del Grappa, 24-Jun-2009

ACube Systems is pleased to announce a new change in its Sam440ep-Flex product line: the new Sam440ep-Flex board running at 733 Mhz that replaces the 800Mhz version (now out of production). This one has a RAM clock running at 147 Mhz, instead of 133 Mhz of the Flex 667.

The suggested price for this Flex 733 is 410 euros (excluding VAT and shipping).

Well, it's faster than the 667 board

@arnljot

The CPU is slightly slower, but the RAM is slightly faster... and since such board isn't oriented to CPU-intensive tasks anyway, I don't think you've got to worry too much

Maybe the (800Mhz wasnt so reliable? or no more components for overclocking at 800MHz found on market?

However I'm awaiting a sam running at least at 1,2GHz with L2 cache and PCI-e(not for performance but for compatibility) gfx slot...

Can you watch HD 720p mp4 h264 content on any of Acube machines?

Is this an admission that the 800MZ board is flawed?? Otherwise, why release a slower version?
How many of us are now left with orphaned hardware only a couple of months (or less) after release? I feel like I've been experimanted on and the experiment failed The Hyperion Quickfix might have fixed the WorkBench graphics corruption but now I have massive graphics corruption in the OS4 splash screen after I boot from the preboot screen (The one that appears if you hold down the Help (Scroll Lock) key during a reboot).

I would not make that assumption.
Granted, Max's posts are sometimes buried in other threads and missed, but...
he -did- state that not enough reliable 667 were available to overclock to 800.
Until he states otherwise, I think we should accept the possibility that he now feels the 667 is safe to operate at 733.

Again, please wait for a personal statement from Max. I sincerely doubt he intends to "orphan" your hardware.

@Xenic:

More likely that the supply of "CPUs that you can overclock to 800 MHz" has dried up. It's unlikely that ACube would have selected the candidates for overclocking themselves (too much work for little return), so they may have bought a batch from somewhere. Now that batch has run out IMO.

@tonyw
What are the odds that anyone will attempt to fix problems on hardware that only a handful of people own? You can apply any reason you want to the decision to switch to a slower CPU but it leaves the few of us who bought the 800MZ version "up a creek without a paddle." Is Hyperion going to buy an 800HZ version, a 733MZ version etc. to test OS 4.1 on? We've already seen that the OS seems to act a little differently on different hardware (A1, A1, SAMep, SAM Flex, Classic Amiga, Pegasus etc.). It sort of seems like they're building a software tower of Babel to me. I'm just a little more than irritated at this turn of events.

No problems here with the update apart from with compositing turned on.
800MHz SAM Flex 1gig ram.
(And Yes I only have SFS0 partitions).

in the old days there was a time line or a preview with stuff not like this
no news and then no news and then sudanli something turns up out of the blue sky.... there could aleast tell us some plans about the futuher for hardware. i remember the old days when hardware was annoucne then pepole could save up to things now, things before evey one knows it and then disapair igen...



i world relly like iff acube told us iff ther got any plans for high-end hardware insted off treating us like this.. come and buy our stuff...

whot kind of hardware and whot price range... maby there are thinking iff ther realese any plans ther wont sell any sams

Don't make up lies people.

Acube already said many weeks ago that most CPUs won't clock to 800 Mhz and that the clocking method had to be changed because of a new alteration in the hardware.

@ Thread::

It is starting to sound like Acube is milking this shet for what its worth?

Why don't they just give us the medium hardware we would like instead?

So the memory is faster and CPU is slower? Hmmm, we're moving up in the world!

I can predict it now, it's going to be another five years before I have an AmigaOne replacemnent. Then it will ten years old, as old as my A1200 was when it was replaced by the A1. Everything is on schedule!

Using "voltage" instead of "potential", which leads to inventing new words like "amperage" instead of "current" (I, measured in A) or possible "charge" (amperehours, Ah or Coulomb, C). Sometimes I don't even know what people mean.
