The AmigaOne A1222 announced during AmiWest 2016 is still in ongoing development and several beta testers and programmers are working hard for the future release of the A1222. The PowerPC based AmigaOne A1222 will be for sale between €400 and €500. The AMigaOne A1222 is based on a Freescale QorIQ P1022 32-bit e500v2 dual-core PowerPC processor. This is essentially the little brother of the new AmigaOne X5000 machines. The board will offer gigabit Ethernet and two SATA 2.6 controllers, as well as two internal and two external USB ports, and the x16 PCIe connector supports RadeonHD cards, which are the general target graphics boards for AmigaOS 4.x. There’s on-board sound and basic HMDI 1.3 graphics output up to 1080. The release has been postponed because of several driver issues, a new release date has not been announced by A-EON Technology. You can read more about it on the blog of A-EON.
