Hardware News   Hardware News : Sam460ex available with AmigaOS 4.1
   posted by elwood on 27-Jan-2011 23:00:06 (22768 reads)
Bassano del Grappa, Italy - 27 Jan, 2011

ACube Systems Srl is pleased to announce the immediate release of Hyperion's AmigaOS 4.1 Update 2 for Sam460ex. Boards and installation CDs are now shipping to resellers.

The board is running at 1.15 Ghz and allows all Amigans to use modern graphic cards thanks to its PCI express slot.
Other features include: 7 USB ports and Gigabit ethernet.


The board is available at a suggested price of 749,00 EUR (including AmigaOS 4.1).
Price excludes local taxes and shipping costs.
Sam460ex AmigaOS 4.1 version:

The version of AmigaOS 4 that will be shipped with the Sam460ex is still to be considered beta. It is made from AmigaOS 4.1 Update 2 on which specific components for Sam460ex were added.
You will still have a valid AmigaOS 4 licence that allows you to download the next AmigaOS update when it will be available from Hyperion Entertainment.
Notes about the AmigaOS 4.1 CD currently shipping with Sam460ex

Currently RadeonHD driver supports the following chipsets with full 2D hardware acceleration and DDC:

* R500 (with compositing support) - Radeon X1550, X1650, X1950 and others
* R600 - Radeon HD 2400 - HD 3450 - HD 3650 and others
* R700 - Radeon HD 4350 - HD 4650

The audio driver will be released on OS4depot as soon as it is ready.

The driver for the onboard SATA port is still experimental. It is not loaded by the kicklayout file but you still can use it (at your own risk). It is located in Devs: and you can use it through Mounter.

The final version will be released with an OS update. In the meantime we suggest to use a Silicon Image 3512 PCI card or an USB-SATA combo PCI card with a Silicon Image chip.

Please read the manual for more information on the board.

It was a very long road and we wish to thank everyone for your patience and support.

that would be wonderful if that turns out to be the case.

and i'm also glad that the SAM460ex is finally shipping, although saddened to see the OS is still considered a 'beta' version after having been in testing for some months. nonetheless a hearty congrats to acube, hyperion, and the OS4 developers. next up: the A1X1000.

@amigakit

glad to hear it. noticed the initial offering price is $1020 USD, including OS4.1u2 (beta). given that, if we already have an existing license, and we wish to replace our existing SAM and replace it with a 460, can we simply transfer that license somehow and be discounted the cost of the OS4 license included in the price?

also: any news on a SAM460ex 'complete system' from you chaps? specs, price, case, etc.?

Sorry thats not possible as the SAM460 AmigaOS 4.1 is not the same as previous SAM models.

Nice. 1000 euros for OS and the board, almost half price of X1000

We will see the comparison of performance when X1000 is realised,
but at present moment it is the most powerful oS4 system!

Hope to see more tests, news, experiences, YouTube videos ...

May we be proud and flourish once again!

As explained:

a) licence is per one computer
b) as known from before, Hyperion is selling different version for each board,
including EP460 and probably X1000 versions once availiable.

So, NO transfers possible. Now or in the future.

ok, hypothetically speaking for now, how would I go about installing my M-Audio Revolution sound card and Catweasel MK4+ pci cards into this new Sam460ex?

also, if I already have a HD configured and working fine with my Samflex and choose to upgrade the MB to the 460ex can I do this without having to redo all my partitions etc.?

yikes. this is going to get expensive.

oh well, i guess this means i won't be ditching my SAM when the X1000 ships. to all those grabbing up a SAM460ex, let us know about the performance, especially on the video side.

I don't see much of an issue with not being able to transfer AmigaOS 4.x licenses between boards. If you sell the board, the next person will also want AmigaOS 4.x, so you might as well sell it as a complete package. If you don't sell it, then you still need a license for that machine, in which case you wouldn't want to transfer it.

all valid points. it's just in my case i was planning on turning one into a dedicated linux box and not running amigaOS on it. but, again, that's not what 98% of people would want, so, i think your point stands.

i am very much looking forward to using modern graphics kit, and, hopefully soon, a 3D stack that is able to take advantage of it. i really appreciate all the work on drivers you have done thus far!

Hi Hans -

Any rough results on what sort of improvements we can expect on graphical performance?

You must have the odd benchmark or two that you run.
