Hardware News   Hardware News : Multi-function PPC CPU card for the Commodore Amiga 3000 and 4000
   posted by opi on 27-May-2012 14:24:51 (8338 reads)
Gideon Zweijtzer (of 1541-Ultimate fame) and Rutger Bevaart have teamed up to bring renewed innovation to the Classical Amiga by announcing the UltimatePPC today, the ultimate CPU expansion card for the Amiga 3000 & 4000. This new card will bring unparalleled performance and many great new features to the Amiga series of computers that were not available previously and give current users a viable upgrade path for aging components.


It also opens new possibilities for newer versions of the Amiga Operating System or alternatives to run on your classic hardware with great performance. The UltimatePPC puts your Amiga right back on your desk as the most versatile and fun computer that has ever existed!

Right now the UltimatePPC is in active development, we expect to be able to take pre-orders at the end of 2012. Please visit our project website at for availability information, specifications and detailed status reports.

Gideon & Rutger

just curious but ... do you really think that someone (in his right mind) would take the time/money/effort to design and then going to a prototype stage, without having some sort of "plan"?

They are all Book-E, as Book-E is "embedded PPC". A G4 is not designed as an "embedded PPC"

What you mean is "only e500mc has the traditional PPC FPU".

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.

Interesting, but if there's no WOS or PUP support then I dont really see the point. Do we really need yet another path to support? Surely the plethora we already have is overkill?

Time will tell I guess, but until some of the more important details (like how the ppc side is even used) I wont get too excited.

If they anyway go forward and get P1013 based HW out, it should be perfectly usable for Linux, Android and PPC AROS where the dev team can recompile all basic applications. In the end... one day... perhaps 68k native AOS3 has a window(s) that gives access to the PPC OS apps.

Actually... it sounds pretty ok for me. No pup/wup/aos4/mos compatibility worries, just access to P1013 devices + opensource PPC SW. (integrated sidecar, kind of)

(update: mixed up 1013 and 1022)
