New Amiga 3000, 4000 68k and PPC cpu card!

Gideon Zweijtzer and Rutger Bevaart have announced they are working to develop a new 68040 and PPC CPU card for the Amiga 3000(T) and Amiga 4000(T) computers.   The board will be named “Ultimate PPC”.  They already have a development board built!

It will feature the following specifications:

  • 33MHz 68040 CPU
  • 1.0GHz Freescale PowerPC CPU
  • 128MB of DDR3 memory for the 68040
  • An additional 2GB of DDR3 memory on an SO-DIMM
  • USB2 host controller with integrated 4 port hub
  • SATA2 controller with two SATA ports
  • 10/100/1000 Ethernet controller
  • Embedded 2D video with DVI connector

Further information, photos, and a FAQ is available on their website at http://ultimateppc.nl/index.php.

They hope to gain support of AmigaOS 4.1 Classic and MorphOS for their new hardware, but that will require support from Hyperion and the MorphOS teams respectively.

I would urge users interested in this card to contact Hyperion and/or the MorphOS team to let it be known that you would purchase an operating system license for the Ultimate PPC hardware.

  1. Great news. 🙂 It will be interesting to see how it pans out. Do you think that Hyperion on the MorphOS team will support it if enough people purchase the card?
