Phase 5 digital products were unique among Amiga hardware manufacturers  in offering the Blizzard PPC and CyberStorm PPC products. These boards had a unique dual-CPU design utilizing both a Motorola 68k processor and a higher performance PowerPC processor.

The new Phase5 attended Amiga32 to showcase the new accelerators to a large Amiga users audience, and some people have purchased Phase 5 PCB’s for about € 160.

Amiga user John Hertell did a full examination and had some awkward experiences with the company and boards. You can read more on his blog.
