Breaking News: A1222+ production underway through a 3-way agreement with ACube Systems, AAA Technology and A-EON Technology

Cardiff: 29/06/2023

In an exciting collaboration of Amiga technology companies, ACube Systems, AAA Technology and A-EON Technology have come together to announce the production version of the long awaited A1222+ computer.

This joint effort brings a new era of collaborative computing for Amiga enthusiasts by leveraging the expertise and resources of the three companies. The A1222+ is custom designed to run AmigaOS 4.x and also supports compatible Linux PowerPC operating systems as well as AmigaOS 3.x under emulation.

The motherboard’s compact and robust design is powered by NXP’s QorIQ P1022 dual-core PowerPC processor running at 1.2 GHz. It is supplied with version 2.3 of A-EON’s Enhancer software package which includes advanced video and graphics drivers and a whole host of updated applications, utilities and datatypes. ACube Systems have already successfully produced updated A1222+ v1.3 prototypes and will manage the new motherboard production and testing while AAA Technology will act as the main distributor for the new Amiga machine.

Enrico Vidale, Matthew Leaman and Laurent Zorawski, the CEOs of the three companies expressed their enthusiasm for this collaboration. They jointly stated, "We are excited to announce our partnership and the beginning of A1222+ production. By combining our strengths and expertise, we aim to deliver an enhanced computing experience for Next-Generation Amiga enthusiasts. This collaboration marks a significant achievement for future hardware and software collaboration between the companies."

Trevor Dickinson, who is funding the manufacturing run on behalf of A-EON Technology added,
“It has been a long and at times challenging task bringing the A1222+ to market. The project has been beset by delays and extreme world events which has resulted in component shortages and massively increased manufacturing costs. I am extremely grateful to ACube and AAA Technologies for helping to make the A1222+ system a commercial reality.”

Amiga enthusiasts who have eagerly awaited the A1222+’s commercial release can now look forward to its upcoming availability. Pre-orders for the A1222+ are expected to open in the coming months, with shipments set to begin shortly afterwards. Customers who committed to A-EON’s Early Adopter scheme will have first choice of refusal after which orders will be accepted on a first come first served basis.

Stay tuned for further updates as we explore the features, specifications, and availability of the A1222+.

Just leave those A1222 to new users. Doesn't really help when existing users buy them all.
The interesting news is Enhancer 2.3

There was a question about price on Amigaworld.net, so thought I'd post it here as well in case someone was wondering about the same thing.

According to a post on the Facebook-page by Amedia Laurent, the price of the A1222+ full configuration will most likely be a bit more expensive than their (Amedia Computers) Sam460LE configuration, which is priced at 1,269 EUR. A board might cost between 900 to 1000 EUR.

The title reads that production is underway. But the "press release" contains some oddities:

Quote:
"...Pre-orders for the A1222+ are expected to open in the coming months ..."


"Pre-orders" and "coming months" in one sentence. This doesn't sound like those boards are around the corner.

Quote:
"...Stay tuned for further updates as we explore the features, specifications, and availability of the A1222+...."


Explore features, specifications, and availability?

Maybe it's just me but this all sounds like an announcement of an intention. Basically only the how is now known. The what and when are still to be determined.
