Nice. Now the price needs to be competitive for a best selling.
BTW, when will it reach the stores?

pics look a lot like a non-working , just-for-show piece of hardware. I don't mean to be negative , but they look fishy.

100% agreed.

It's somewhat unfortunate. Because even if they could pull it off hardwarewise, coming up with the license, that Amiga Inc already clearly stated it won't give them, and all other problems, were already bad enough.

The board looks done by amateurs. It probably is. I'm sure they tried their best, and perhaps they can still limp along on it, even unlicensed borderline ilegal harwdware would be a progress at this point, if it works.

The lack of AGP, only having two PCI slots is horrible, almost crippling. One goes for GFX board and then the MB only has one slot left... wtf? Things like it only having SDram is bad enough, since it's a deprecated, now expensive solution

It will be interesting to see how far this gets...

I guess if there is a plan to the feature-set of this board ( not just limited by their talents ) this is an A500-a-like with maybe a more advanced board for the 'power-user' to follow.

If that is the case, I would actually like to see it lose a pci slot!
BUT also use a chipset with decent intergrated GFX & shrink the board down to Mini-ITX size.

My best wishes to these guys. ( Assuming this isn't more pie-in-the-sky )
I hope A.inc haven't already bu**ered its chances given some of the rumors going round.
