    I really don't know. I'm fairly puzzled that while developing a PA6T based board (for which the CPU parts have been sourced by A-Eon according to the extended press release PDF file) Varisys discouraged you from looking into the PA6T. Maybe you could ask them for clarification?

    I think I'm quite aware of the weakness of a 1 GHz PPC440 core + smallish L2 cache based CPU in comparison to e.g. a G4 CPU of the same clock rate ;-)

    > we don't need to worry about Acube's products

    What you take for worrying is probably rather some's consideration of the Sam460EX as a possible candidate for a future MorphOS hardware platform ;-)
