The counterpart of A-Eon and ACube would be Eyetech. Mai Logic's role would be more like Varisys'.

Yes, they have licensed the name from Hyperion.

With the X5000 (as opposed to the X1000), A-Eon is promoting the "AMIGA one" spelling, not "Amiga One".
As usually, thanks for the corrections, but I hope that messages are understandable. It could be amiga one or AMIGA ONE, that all variates of the same name
Radeon HD4000 support would be great (if not initial, soon) because its default graphic card with SAM460ex/A1-500, with full 3D support.
I understand most of MorphOS users see it as expensive board of no interest (since one can easily obtain PPC Mac) but potential is:
- firstly in current SAM users (Amigamap.com lists 14 A1-500 and 135 SAM4xx boards).
- as well is in offer of system with MorphOS on Acube website (if can be arranged), or if not on some independent stores
- SAM460ex benefits as developmental bridge to PCI-E (sound, gfx, SATA ...) cards, compared to cumbestone and rarer G5 Macs. Lastly, SAM460 port could easily bring SAM440 port as it is quite similar.
- I don`t know future Acube plans, but one more generation off IBM/AMCC 4xx chips exists http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PowerPC_400#PowerPC_470
That might be a nice mid-range MorphOS system
Poor performance: ... It can be usable system - even, it it doesnt have altivec, It seems code SAM460 can be optimized - Acube version has FPU
Trivia: Its also interesting to see AMCC 460EX developer board can cost much ...
So Acubes offer doesn`t seem that bad
