Hardware News   Hardware News : Sam460ex available with AmigaOS 4.1
   posted by elwood on 27-Jan-2011 23:00:06 (25230 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.

Great! Looks like an excellent piece of hardware.

I should really save up for either one of these or a 440ep-flex. I have yet to actually use any AmigaOS 4 hardware.

Yes there's a PCIE x1 slot, but if you use it then you cannot use the on-board SATA port, so you will also need an SATA card in the PCI slot.

There was a discussion on a while back with someone suggesting to use the internal USB port with one of those USB Sata controllers.
This way one could place a Sound Blaster in the PCI and a Radeon Card in the PCI-E without worrying about the HD.
I wonder if it's doable...

If i were you i'd go for the 460,cos of more memory,faster cpu and the pci-e slot.

Maybe I'm not entirely awake, but using a PCI soundblaster and a PCIe Radeon wouldn't mess with the SATA connector anyway, so why worry at all?

The chip used has:
x4 PCIe (this is the correct way to say it: "by 4 PCI Express")

This weeks pet peeve:
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.

I wouldn't be surprised to see booting off PCIe SATA cards in a future uBoot update...
