I submitted an e-mail to the info@natami.net in regards to my inability to sign up. I only did this last night so I'm not too worried about it. I will give it a couple days, but if I don't get a response by this Sunday, then I will take you up on your offer of finding out what I did wrong or if my request just got lost. It's not a big worry. All the conversations over there are so technical that I feel rather lost on many occasions. My questions are much more simplistic and base. Thank you by the way for explaining how it will be possible to reach a speed of 100MHz on the FPGA for the N68050. It's very interesting.

I'm close. I'm in Baldwin City which is a few minutes south of Lawrence but I grew up in Independence, MO. There's still a few Amiga users around K.C. Good luck getting on the Natami board.

@Samurai Crow
Pipelining and code fusion make the N68050 faster (more powerful technically) WITHOUT increasing the clock speed don't they? The same could be said for larger caches, old instructions that take less cycles (compared with 68060), new instructions and addressing modes that require less instructions, and superscaler execution in the case of the N68070. They all make the processor more powerful at the same clock speed. If everything works as planned, the N68050 should be able to outperform the superscaler 68060 at the same clock speed. The N68070 could easily be twice as fast or more at the same clock speed.

I grew up in Topeka and Lawrence. I know exactly where Baldwin City is. I think everything will be fixed so I can join the Natami board, it just may take a little while. It's very cool to see someone close to me that uses Amiga computers. Did you buy your Amiga's in Topeka? When I was a kid there was a computer store downtown in Topeka where my dad and I went when we bought Amiga stuff because it was the only store we knew that sold anything for them in Topeka. All the mall stores sold PC and Atari only if I recall.

Thoroughbred pops into my head as the name of an old Amiga shop. I don't remember if that was the one in Topeka or Overland Park. The only Amiga I bought new was a 3000 in Overland Park.

Production has been set back by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The team is looking at their options for now but it looks like it will out maybe at the end of this year unless we can figure out some other plan.

I hope it will be available by October so orders can be made at the AmiWest Show, but more important than that, I hope that one of the Natami team members will attend the AmiWest Show with a working Natami system to demo it to everyone. Has there been any discussion between Natami team members about attending the AmiWest Show this year? If not, please bring up the topic and try to convince someone to go. I would love to meet you there this year.

It is beta at the moment and a release date is still to be announced. Looks like you'll have to wait some more. I wouldn't hold my breath.

We are amiga users, waiting for new hardware is our virtue.

It is true. The first (more expensive) batch of boards with real 68060 CPUs will most likely be ready by the end of this year. We will have to wait a bit more for the cheaper version with the N68050 softcores though.

Check out the NatAmi website and forums for daily news.

Cheers !

Will it be possible to order those one (the expensive) without the 68060 (in case we already own one) ?

I can't speak for the NatAmi team, but I don't think it would be possible (my personal opinion).
They use the MC68060FE processor (SMD dark ceramic EC version), and it is highly unlikely that you have the same version. You probably have the PGA ceramic version.

Anyway feel free to browse the NatAmi forum. A lot of interesting techy stuff there

They have two different processor boards. apparently you can choose when ordering. (slowest have mmu)

I think those are prototypes only. Or a selected few for devs. I know there has been a lot of talk about MMU version and stuff, but I don't think they will go to production with two different boards. That would be illogical (captain )
After all, the "old" 060 can USUALLY go, what, 60, 70...5 MHz ? The "new" ones are on 110-120 MHz right now. May turn out even faster...

Don't get me wrong, I am generally for as many choices as one can have. I would support more variants, even cheap-o boards with 50ish MHz 68030 But from a small production run point of view, I think they will go for the most standardized solution.

Buuuuuut as yet another twist, the boards will come fully documented. And having the synczorro slot, nothing is preventing the third party boards, hacks or workaround solutions for any type of CPU. Maybe even 68000 degrader boards
