Well, I was perusing the latest Amiga World, and one of the adverts had one
called the Cyberstorm. Available with '040s also. Optional communications
module that gave ethernet, scsi-2-wide, and a serial port. Scsi was based on
the Fastlane card. Not much more on it though.
For those with Warp Engines: Why not buy it with no-cpu, get a clock upgrade to
40mhz, get a '040 at 40mhz?
Warp-Engine 25mhz no cpu: $749
Clock upgrade: $10??
Motorolla 68040 @ 40mhz: $399
$1200~ for a Warp Engine at 40mhz.
Compared to the 40mhz : $1499...
An A3000 '040-40mhz warp deprived owner.
