AmigaOne Lite to be PowerPC Mini-ITX
September 21, 2003

The new AmigaOne Lite board that has reached prototype stage at Eyetech in Yorkshire, and it's suspiciously Mini-ITX sized. The new generation of Amiga hardware has been available for a while in ATX form, and the new AmigaOS 4.0 is almost complete - though these puppies can also run Linux. PowerPC G3 and G4 versions of the ATX board are currently available (using a MegArray socket for the processor daughtercard), and this Mini-ITX version is on the way (though it is several revisions away from production, which should be early next year). Possible PowerPC CPUs could range from a 433Mhz 750CXe to a speedy 1.3GHz G4. Specifications could be something in the order of: 170cm square Mini-ITX sized motherboard; Gigabit and 10/100 Ethernet on board; ATA133 UDMA RAID IDE controller; USB 2.0; Integrated AGP graphics (we can spot an ATI chip on there); TV-Out; AC97 Sound; PCI slot; PS/2; Serial; Parallel ports and possibly Cardbus and Firewire. Thanks to the legions of Amiga fans who wrote in about this (particularly Sven and Mike)
