Selfmade project: Building an Amiga 2000 (part 3)
'Drygol' is not only a member of the demoscene group Lamers, but basically deals with retro computers in the form of restorations, upgrades etc. On his site he not only offers various retro articles, but also runs a blog. Among other things he describes there his project 'Tesseract', the building of an Amiga 2000 from scratch with all maximum modifications. After the first two reports (1, 2, he published the third blog post of the series the day before yesterday. His project is based on the GitHub project of 'Floppie209', a replica of the Amiga2000 motherboard with Sprint layout. (dr)

History: Commodore's hardware plans
The Commodore International Historical Society is dedicated to preserving the history of Commodore International. Recently, they published photos provided by Robert Miranda on their Twitter channel, which once again show the planned further development of the hardware:

According to these documents, an updated version of the Amiga 1200 was to be shipped with a 68030 processor in 1994, while the Amiga 4000 was to be replaced by a machine equipped with a PA-RISC microprocessor architecture from Hewlett-Packard. The joint venture project with HP, planned under the name Hombre, was apparently planned in two versions: As a "single chip" with 57 MHz and 32 bit and with 2 chips and 3D support with 135 MHZ and 64 bit.
