X5000 Update

The AmigaOne X5000/20 was released last year by A-EON technology featuring a PowerPC-based dual-core Freescale CPU with a frequency of up to 2.5 Ghz. The AmigaOne X5000/20 was released with modern hardware in mind offering support for SATA, USB, etc. The AmigaOne X5000/20 also features a PCI-Express video card slot, up to 64 GB RAM, dual gigabit Ethernet ports, built-in sound, and an extra co-processor best referred to as the Xena, an XMOS 16-core programmable 32-bit 500 MHz chip that can be configured by software to act as any type of custom chip imaginable. The AmigaOne X5000/20 is capable of running Amiga OS 4.1 and several Linux PowerPC distros.

However, recently A-EON Technology announced that it has a more powerful AmigaOne X5000/40 in development as well, featuring a quad-core PowerPC CPU. Details and release date are unknown. The tech company is mainly focusing on its upcoming AmigaOne A1222, a new powerful, low-cost, entry level PowerPC motherboard to be released late 2017 or early 2018.
