BoXeR Shows Us What It's Made Of

Stop Press

Logo The specifications of the new BoXeR motherboard from Index Information have been announced. Based on the Amiga O.S. and chipset, the BoXeR is 100 per cent Amiga compatible and will allow systems within the price range of existing A1200s and A4000s to be built. The Baby AT motherboard will fit in any standard PC desktop or tower case, and carries 2MB of Chip RAM, 4 72-pin SIMM sockets and a real-time clock. Also on the board are headers for printer, RGB video, AV, serial, audio, joystick and mouse. The specifications of Index's board, which will be distributed by Blittersoft, are looking very impressive.

Here's a quick run-down:

The BoXeR will be sold in three ways:
  1. As the heart of new Black Box Amiga systems from Blittersoft
  2. As a standalone motherboard
  3. Through OEMs (Originating Equipment Manufacturers)
motherboard Prices have not yet been announced, but are expected to rival existing mid-range systems. It is yet to be seen how the board performs in reality, but we hope to test a pre-production model in the March. For more information, check out Blittersoft's website
