hardware Classic   hardware Classic : New Amiga 060 boards
   posted by x303 on 30-May-2020 15:35:10 (1972 reads)
Amigawarp / CS-Lab for Amiga currently comes with the Warp 1260 & 560 and later on, the 4060.

It has:

- MC68060 CPU -> You need to supply your own.
- 256MB DDR3 RAM
- RTG Graphics up to 1920x1080 resolution 32bit color and Digital Video output
- 16bit Audio Codec
- on-board FastIDE interface
- 400MHz ARM co-processor
- USB Host Ports
- WiFi module
- microSD card slot
- on-board fast ROM with slots up to four Kickstart versions and burst access
- on-board connector for optional flicker-fixer module (in development)



You can even try to overclock the mc/xc68060 rev 6 upto 105 Mhz.

It costs 499.

Wow what a loaded 060 accelerator ! man this is some amazing news!

Wondering if there will just be a base board with no RTG, USB, Fast IDE etc coming out too ???

Congrats to dev team !

Love the fact it all sits neatly inside the A1200 case. Looks very well made.

Very cool. I wonder how much access you get to the ARM side...

Wow. So it's not exactly an 060 board as it doesn't have an 060 but on the surface is only compatible with an 060?

Doesn't seem to offer 16-but audio out.

Will the kernel be called ARMUP? Amiga goes RISCPC.

Well it is, but you need to supply your own 060. So the amiga part runs on the 060, some of the background stuff is handled by the arm.

The manual says: "32bit 400MHz ARM microcontroller which act as board manager and specialized
chipset giving additional IO like USB, and offload 68K CPU from various tasks like MP3
or JPEG decoding"

It should (when released).

They say "16bit audio codec with original Amiga audio mixing capability".

"USB Host Ports"?

That's a slower ARM these days but I wonder if it could just also emulate the 060 if it had control.

It's just I read codec which encodes/decodes data but doesn't always imply a DAC.

It's surprising that there has not been more threads discussing these accelerator boards, as they appear to be quite amazing. Including lots of RAM, USB & Ethernet ports/headers, and a fast IDE controller, is just about everything any Classic Amiga user could hope for in an accelerator. The connector for an RTG board that is currently in development and a flicker fixer I think was mentioned as well. Wow!

I know that the Vampire boards have been dominating a lot of the Classic conversations, and rightly so, with their impressive performance, but there are a few purists that think some of the additions to the AGA chipset, as well as the lack of a complete 680x0 MMU, make the Vampire boards an unsuitable product for their own personal tastes, so these and other projects, like the Terrible Fire boards, fill the needs of those users nicely.

The fact that you must find your own 68060 CPU is a bit of a challenge, specially for those who want the revision 6 CPU's, so they might be able to over clock them to higher frequencies. I think I have one 68060 CPU in my Amiga collection, but it is an early revision, and I am not even sure of what the original clock frequency of that part is. I would not want to cannibalize any of my working 060 accelerators, just to get the 060 CPU for one of these new accelerator boards, but I can imagine that some people might do just that, because they have no other way of finding a 68060 CPU to complete these new accelerators. Tough choice to make, keep a working piece of history, or remove its working CPU to use on a new accelerator?

At least it is nice to see that we have so many choices for products when talking about our beloved A500, A2000, A1200 computers, and perhaps in the future there will also be a version for the A3000D/T and A4000D/T Amigas (is there already these A3000 & A4000 new accelerators available, and I just missed reading that part?)

Edit: I just checked, and see that the A3000/A4000 boards are still in development, as well as the flicker fixer, but apparently RTG is already completed and 1080p @ 32bit color depth is working. There are even more features than I originally noted above, with more to be added, or optimized in the near future, which makes these boards even more exciting. If any of the early purchasers/beta testers who have the A500 model of this accelerator have access to a CDTV, I would be interested to know if it will work in the CDTV? I have my "Like New" CDTV, that I would love to upgrade with a Warp560, or a Vampire, if possible.

Just had a look online for 68060 prices and they are laughably expensive unfortunately :( It is a real shame there isn't an FPGA version of the 68060 that could be used with this.
