A-EON Again stuck in prototype phase of the A1222

The upcoming AmigaOne A1222 is again delayed by A-EON due problems with the motherboard. A new design (version 1.3) is currently in the works. 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. The system was announced in 2014 and several launch dates have been postponed over and over again. However, a general public launch is now expected by Q3/2021.
