As a unique offer together with the second batch Amy-ITX boards – We now have the great pleasure to offer you the ultimate Classic combo between compatibility and performance! Mr.A’s design outperforms all equivalent accelerators on the market. (Sysinfo CPU) (Sysinfo IDE) Remember – we’re not here to compete or step on any toes. We all love and respect the hard work done by everyone in this passionate niche market!
Like Amy – this card is more than hardware – It’s Art!
And the fun doesn’t stop there! We’re also making the Ultra Slim 10MBit Network card available. Your new favorite home computer has never been this slick, compatible and connected! Both these DIY-KITs will be available together with the awesome Amy-ITX motherboard. The same principle applies – signup is open for 4 weeks – starting TODAY!
While it probably doesn’t come as a surprise to most of us – the humble designer of the Amy sure didn’t expect this kind of appreciation and excitement.
Yesterday the AmiGBG Team announced that a special edition of their rare and prestigious award would go to our very own ‘Mr.A’ for “his astonishing creativity and passion ..” [including] “the Amy project, a product based around the original custom chips of the classic Amiga computer from Commodore.”
Mr.A:“This is a great honor for me. I simply don’t know what to say …”
Too many times have we heard the phrase that portrays this post. Too many times have we been told to wait two more weeks. The AMIGA has become synonymous with fantasies, dreams and vapourware.
Well, NO MORE! As can be seen far and wide in Amiga Land regular people like you and me – heroes and enthusiasts with nothing but passion and love to fuel their creativity, keep breaking the trend and deliver quality hardware against all odds. Big words indeed, but we just happen to be a proud part of this growing community of makers and creators. And I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to wish you all a Happy New Year – and invite you to join us on an exiting journey as we boldly step into a new year – without promises, teasers or hot air.
But make no mistake. We. Are. Back. In fact we never left.
First off I’d like to personally say thank you to everyone who’s contacted us and expressed an interest in the Amy-ITX project! It means a lot and helps motivate further development and reaching our first important milestone.
Delivering the first 25 Earlybird boards!
I’m happy to tell you that we’re about half way through our first journey. We’ve already seen Amy surface at different events, parties and news sites around Europe. Thanks to all of you, especially our good friends at A-Eon for their continued commitment to the Amiga Community!
A huge thanks to Amiga enthusiast John “Chucky” Hertell for bringing his Amy-ITX to Neuss and letting people hug and squeeze Her. Chucky is the author of the wonderful DiagROM (Amiga replacement diagnostic ROM) and other cool open and free projects like the A3660 CPU accelerator!
Thank You all for the very positive response on the Amy project! We really appreciate it. We have received a lot of questions from users wanting to buy a complete system or a system without custom chips. And for now we do not take (pre)orders for Amy-ITX. Please refer to the FAQ here on amy-itx.com.
If and when we decide to launch a larger production run we’ll announce it! Thank you for your understanding and support!
So we’ve been beating around the bush for far too long now.. It’s time to give all of you wonderful Amiga Enthusiasts a taste of the good stuff. Here you have it – a bit of info on the “Made in Sweden” MiniITX Amy motherboard.
Thanks for bearing with us during the launch. We really appreciate it! Oh, and if you have any questions, please write them down and store them in a safe place until we get things running, OK?
We’re finally proud to announce that the first few PCB’s have been inspected and shipped to eager Earlybird Amiga builders! On safir.amigaos.se blogs you can follow their progress in building a new generation of AmigaOS compatible systems!
Friends, artists, coders, musicians, lamers, makers, builders and wannabees. Next stop: SyntaxSociety of Scania! Yes! We will be attending Skåne’s prime hackerspace this weekend – bringing with us both parts, pcb’s and complete systems for y’all to play with!
