This is the first new stand-alone classic 68K Amiga in decades.

How do you count years? Last 68xxx Amigas were A4000T from Escom in 1994 and QuikPak continued for a certain time production upto 1997. This means this year it has been passed right 2 (TWO) decades.

Aww, world championship in hairsplitting is coming up again

Anyhow, I also found it curious as to why it ended up in the "News" department, but I dont have a strong opinion either way.

What Im glad to see is the level of attention outside our small community it has gotten.
This can be good for both the Vampire and general community. Even if a handful of both old users return, its a good thing. And maybe even some younger ones...?!

One can only hope.

@pAvLoR

I sit and stand corrected.

The first stand-alone NEXT-GENERATION CPU AND CHIPSET 68K Amiga in decades, with a cherry on top.

Well, nearly 25 years old A4000 is faster in FPU operations. That much about NEXT-GENERATION CPU... me hides.
