The Sam460LE – Now in stock! – Update: Not in stock after all

Update – October 10th – reports: “Acube Systems has just informed us that the information that the board is listed as “In stock” in the store is misleading. Currently, the boards are still in production, the published image is from pre-production. They had to be built to make sure they work as intended. According to the current status, the boards will be finished at the beginning of November..” (source:


The Sam460LE, an AmigaOS 4 compatible motherboard from ACube Systems in Italy, is now in stock and available for purchase.

Here is a quick overview of the specifications:

  • Micro-ATX form factor with enough space for a double slot graphics card (important considering the Radeon drivers from A-EON Technology)
  • PPC460ex SoC CPU 1.10 GHz

  • 7 USB ports
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • 4 usable boot media

Memory modules are not included and must be purchased separately.
