Demo-DVD: MindCandy 2 as ISO-Download
Five years ago the DVD "MindCandy Volume 2" was published and contains recordings of Amiga demos. Because the DVD is sold out the ISO-image can be downloaded for free as PAL or NTSC version. (cg) (Translation: dr)

Detlef Zirpel (Gideon Zweijtzer / Rutger Bevaart) (ANF)

Dutch team announced new PPC-board for Amiga 3000/4000
Gideon Zweijtzer (among others involved in 1541 Ultimate) and Rutger Bevaart are working on a PPC-extension for Amiga 3000/4000 computers called "UltimatePPC" which also will provide USB-, SATA- and Ethernet ports as well as an integrated 2D graphic chip with DVI-port. In a duscussion on Gideon "mousehouse" Zweijtzer has answered questions of users:

The board will have the same size as an A3640 and be equipped with a 68040 and a Freescale QorIQ P1013. Both processors will be equipped with Bus and RAM. In substance they are two completely independent systems.

The trick: The USB-, SATA- and Ethernet-controllers which are used in the P1013, which is a System on a Chip (SoC), canbe also accessed from outside and does not depend on what the processor is calculating.

Furthermore suitable operating systems will run on the Power-CPU - maybe contemporaneously with AmigaOS 3.

The detailed specifications:
  • 68040 CPU with 33 MHz and 128 MB RAM (DDR3)
  • QorIQ P1013 CPU with 1.0 GHz and 2GB RAM (DDR3, SO-DIMM)
  • USB2-controller with integrated fourfold-Hub
  • SATA2-controller with two SATA-ports
  • Ethernet-controller (10/100/1000)
  • Integrated 2D video chip with DVI-port
An unfinished prototype of UltimatePPC is to be seen on the website. The developers suppose that already at the end of the year the first orders can be accepted.

It seems to be still not clear which software will be supported: According to the FAQ a SANA2-compatible Ethernet driver is developed. For other software sections like USB or graphic support the developers only confirmed that this is "also very important".

Which PPC operating systems will run on the board also is still not clear. Harry "Piru" Sintonen has rejected to port MorphOS for it. Concerning AmigaOS 4 the original website, which meanwhile was reworked, stated that the developers will try to contact Haage&Partner... (cg) (Translation: dr)

FPGA-Arcade-Boards with Amiga-emulation available
According to Laurent 'Faranheit' Zorawski at amigaworld the FPGA-Arcade-boards with Amiga emulation can be ordered from him. The next charge of boards he expects to come in four or five weeks provided by FPGA-Arcade developer Mike Johnson. A reservation is recommended. Pictures and videos can be found under the title link.

The board consists of a 68k-processor (68000, 68010, 68020, 68EC020) as well as of the Amiga-chipsets OCS-A500, OCS-A1000, ECS and AGA. It uses 2 MB Chip-RAM and 9,5 MB Fast-RAM (57 MB Fast-RAM are announced) and can use two HDF-files and emulates four disk drives. Kickstart files from version 1.3 to 3.1 are accepted as well as different Workbench versions inclusive a 3.9-light-version. For the extension port before the end of the year a combined 68060, network and USB board with micro-SD-slot will be available (picture).

The FPGA-Arcade-Board differs from the original Minimig:
  • Further processors beyond the 68000 are emulated, the 68020EC with up to 99 MHz
  • More RAM as the 2-4 MB of the Minimig (up to 60 MB after finishing the currently tested firmware)
  • Can be used in ATX, Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX case
  • AGA-Chipsatz-Emulation
  • Extension port
  • S-Video output (will be accessable with the announced firmware update)
