UltimatePPC

Any news about this card? The last update was July 13th this year. Amiga needs a new PPC-card! They should make a kickstart project out of it (hurray, a pun!), or something like that, to encourage development a little bit.

Also, what happened with Natami?

Isn't for A1200 (A3000/A4000 only?) and isn't compatible to "classic" PPC AFAIK.

Natami...dead. Under a different unknown project name now, will rise like the phoenix from ashes...one must hope anyway.

There's the new project name (I also didn't know until now )

Gideon makes his stuff on his spare time and he doesn't have much of that really. From experience and record, he ultimately delivers, and then more. The Ultimate 1541 is an incredible device and I wouldn't expect less from the Ultimate whenever he finishes it.

It is totally useless for me but for those interested in PPC architecture, I'd be looking forward to it, whenever it comes out.

Hello All,

I just joined the board because of this miracle add-on. Hopefully, the UltimatePPC will become a reality.

Count me in for any type of pre-order (or even beta-testing).

Yeah can't wait, and same for a preorder.

Why aren't more Amiga projects being funded via Kickstarter and other crowdfunding platforms by the way?

Having in mind that the current update on 1541 Ultimate is a little hope-demolishing, I wouldn't hold my breath for UltimatePPC to come out any soon.

I agree regarding crowdfunding though.

I'm blowing some life into this thread.

I want this card. Now! I am willing to spend up to 1000 euros.
Are there any news ?
