Sam460LE 1.10 Ghz Pre-Order!

Hi everyone,

ACube Systems have announced a pre-order for a brand new batch of Sam460 boards! The board is called Sam460LE and is a bit different from the previous ones, since it has extra space for a double-slot graphics card. This is important, since the graphics drivers from A-EON Technology are getting better and better. With a decent graphics card the increase in performance will be high. 🙂

Now, without further ado, here is the description of the pre-order straight from ACube’s website:

Sam460LE (Limited Edition) is a PowerPC motherboard engineered and produced by ACube Systems and it is totally made in Italy.

The Sam460LE bundle contains:

  • Micro-ATX form factor motherboard, with enough space for double slot graphic cards 😉
  • MicroSD Slot at the rear of the board, so it can operated from the back.
  • 1 backplate
  • 7 USB ports
  • Gigabit ethernet
  • 4 usable boot media
  • and more…

The Sam460LE supports 3 expansion slots: PCI, PCIe 1x and PCIe 4x.

Please consider this:

This product is a pre-order offer.  The final price of this pre-order product will be 739 Euros VAT excluded (european countries should add 22% VAT).
People that will purchase outside the scope of this pre-order offer will have to pay a final price of 789 Euros for the same product (VAT excluded).

Pre-orders will be processed as follows :

– you can pay now 240 Euros (VAT excluded, see above), for a Sam460LE package
– we’ll announce on all social media when the production starts

– we’ll also announce when the production has been completed
– you will be asked one by one, to complete your payment (basically, the total cost minus what you paid as this pre-order)
– first payment, first served. We’ll ship in the same order we receive the remaining payments.
– in case you decide to ask for a refund, we’ll send your money back without condition.

Anyone going to pre-order the motherboard? I must say that it is great to see new hardware being made available again. Right now it is almost impossible to find new or second-hand AmigaOS 4.x compatible systems, so this should be welcome news to many. Sam460 also supports MorphOS, which is a big plus.

Thanks for reading and have a great day! 🙂

  1. This is great news, I think. Too bad they didn’t announce general availability, and also frustrating to see that they support alien operating systems that splits the community.
