    > The board seems to a rather complete ppc board

    Can audio hardware and 3D graphics hardware attached to the A3000/4000 be used from the PPC side of this expansion board? To me this would seem crucial for using the PPC as the main CPU.

    Even if MorphOS was ported to the e500v2 core, existing MorphOS binaries that use the FPU wouldn't run. And it seems the e500v2's "embedded FPU" overlaps with AltiVec as well.

    Onboard gfx chip? Is there something else on the board than the P1013's on-chip DIU?
