PPC cards was just released but they decided to release only the 68k port, maybe they were hoping people on 030 boards where thinking they were going to play deathmatch all day long on their A2000 special with 52 MB SCSI drive.

I mean this is not a classic AT-system with an old school mechanic on-off switch, it is just like a PC, an ATX-system where you should be able to shut off the computer software wise. (more…)

AmigaOS 4.0 in all its glory

AmigaOS 4.1 in all its glory

AmigaOS 4.1 is not vintage or retro so you might wonder why such topic is the matter of the day here in the underground bunkers of Vintage Amiga Hardware Blog? (more…)

Today I launched my latest Amiga blog called ”Vintage Amiga Programs”. The last two years have seen me focusing mainly only on Amiga hardware but I think it is time for me to also get back into Workbench again.
