Hi guys,

I was just browsing through the acorn newsgroups and I came across this website http://www.expresspcb.com/ExpressPCBHtm/Specs.htm. I was thinking maybe they could design a SS7 motherboard with an up to date chipset and the other features of a Socket A motherboard. I realise it would be waste the money to do this, especially with the AMD 64-bit CPU out, but I'd like to squeeze as much as I can out of the K6+ cpu's.

Wacko I know :shock: but I love my k6's.

Those look like very small board prices and standard cost only.

Start adding the needed chips to it etc and then the engineering cost would get the price apove a normal retail modern M.B. of most any type.

I could see a volunteer operation attempting a PCI type add-in card or maybe easier would be to develope a reverse (down-grade) "Power-Leap" type socket/slocket item to use the AMD K6-2/III "+" series CPU's in a modern setup ....hmmm that, might even work ! :shock: 8)

...hmm.........

Well what I read says they do boards up to 12 by 14 inches, and up to 4 layers (typical Super 7 has four layers). So if you know enough about motherboard design, ( I sure don't ), then go ahead and do it.
