AGA Amigas
 
Am I right when I say that only the A4000 & A1200 are the only AGA Version Amigas?

Also has the Amiga 4000 got a pcmcia port like the Amiga 1200 & 600 have for adf transfer with a pcmcia compact flash card?

Hungry Horace 11 October 2009 16:56

A4000, A1200 and CD32 are AGA :)

no pcmcia on the A4000 though. An IDE->CF adaptor wouldnt be out of the question though. I always saw the a4000 as a "pure" HD based machine though... afterall, you can fit 3.5inch HDs in there!

hope that is of help

Paul_s 11 October 2009 16:57

AGA;

CD32
3000+ motherboard only exists in (working) prototype form (extremely rare most were destroyed)
Index Informations 'Access' (rare as funk though and £££)
BoXer & InsideOut card (also made by Index Information)
DCE Wonder TV 6000

4000 does not have PCMCIA as standard (there maybe a zorro card but I doubt it). I'd just use a Deneb card for transfers anyway :)

edit: horace quicker than horace on the ski slopes!

So I see why most people use the Amiga 1200 for their choice of Amiga as it has pretty much all you need for adf transfer with aga, thankyou for your swift replys ;)

Are they really, ;). We have 2 at amigakit. Had to repair 1 as the battery leaked over it, :(. Very nice bit of kit. 2MB Chip, 8MB Fast and an 68030 Onboard.

(Not so) Idle curiosity:
For sale? How much..?

Hungry Horace 11 October 2009 18:32

@ Paul_s

nice listing of the more obscure variants there ;)

Paul_s 11 October 2009 18:37

I would love some Index Information pron.... rare amiga stuff = like making love to a beautiful woman :D

Interesting to note the BoXer didn't have the 2MB chip ram limitation... how cool is that. Would've made a killing if it had been released in the mid 90's... :sad

asm1 11 October 2009 19:21

was there not an AGA pop on expansion either developed or in protoype for the A500 as well ? (I seem to recall you mentioning this in another thread Paul :))

Oh yeah, here it is...

With a PPC accelerator attached for good measure! Put together by DCE... nothing about it anywhere though... :( I guess you could call this the ultimate setup in terms of having OCS or ECS/AGA together in the same machine... very cool. Kinda looks like the Access motherboard.

I forget where I got that picture from :crying

Nice pics, :).

Damn!:shocked PPC and AGA on an A500.... nice :D

Paul_s 11 October 2009 23:05

I found some info on it on amiga.org... (probably got the pic on there too a while ago).

While it may make a nice retro-geek-addon nowadays, people back in 98 wheren`t using their Machines all for Retro.

edit: found where I got it from now :D http://www.amiga.org/gallery/index.php?n=1242

and thus it went to the the great prototype heaven in the skies...

I would have to check.

On a side note, those Index Access pics (from my previous post) will work now as my server has been fixed, :).
