Amiga & AROS So we finally meet! You can't imagine how hard I've tried to get my hands on a machine that could run AmigaOS 4 in all its glory. I've never used the Amiga before - not during its heydays, and not during its afterglow - so it meant an unexplored world for me. You can imagine my excitement when ACube Systems, makers of the sam440ep board that runs AmigaOS 4.1, offered a review machine to me, built around their own PowerPC sam440ep flex motherboard.

Did you compare the Yosemite reference board and the Sam440 board made by ACube. I bet no!! :-)

Yes, I have them compared. It is not the Yosemite-board ACube is using today. It is the Sequoia-board, overclocked to 733 MHz and with extra memory.

Check again: http://www.design-reuse.com/news/10766/amcc-comprehensive-cost-powe...

Sequoia is the eval board for the 440epx System-On-Chip but ACube uses the 440ep whose eval board is the Yosemite.

Anyway, the eval board and the sold boards are obviously not the same.
