I understand BD was a keen Amiga fan or was that Atari. Thought you might be interested in this article BD.
The A-EON Amiga X5000:

Personally what I found most interesting was the SSD. An OWC SATA 3G unit. I wonder if their SATA chipset is limited to 3G? Or maybe they're still debugging it so they limited the prerelease unit to 3G to avoid issues.

Still, its kind of amusing to see people going "ew ew power pc ew ew" - those people clearly are completely not the target market.

Heh. I'd love me some 4 GHz PPC action. Seriously, old school gaming bliss and an OS that's snappier than OS X even in Classic mode.

Well the article claims up to 2.5Ghz.

Only problem is I can't find a 2.5Ghz PPC part on the mothership's website:
http://www.nxp.com/products/microcontro ... CHITECTURE

Fastest I found was 2Ghz. Might have skipped a section though, PPC processors are so divided now.

Hmm, wonder if I can find Cinemaware's 3 Stooges...

The fastest I found on the site was 2.2 GHz, but the into section to those parts claimed "up to 2.4 GHz." :confused:

I wonder if A-EON is doing what OWC used to do, overclocking slower binned parts.

I downclocked my 1.5Ghz dual 7447 card to 1.2Ghz once I figured out it was using 1Ghz CPUs... and after a couple years it still cooked itself. Then again I think I was running dnetc a lot of the time, so it wasn't exactly having an easy time.

LOL! I had a few of those “1.6GHz” 7447s that cooked themselves at any speed; the most dramatic was the dual 1.6GHz card that eventually melted all of it’s solder and the chips physically slid off the CPU upgrade card! :classic-eek: :bonk: And that was with Porkstacker-upgraded cooling (loud and big CFM throughput)… of course it was the dnetc 24x7 that surely did it in.
