    NXP claims T2080 availability until 2027, so I don't see this as the likely reason.


    Could be a declining stock on a shelf. A limited and declining supply is a logical and common reason for big price increases of old stuff that most certainly was written off a long time ago. Look at the PA6T for example. What other reasons for the price of an old (turning ancient) CPU to *double* is there? A sudden vast increase in demand? Not very likely...
    MorphOS is Amiga done right! :-)
    MorphOS NG will be AROS done right! :-)
