Extreme AmigaXL x86 Clones

Seller: Extreme Computing
Announced: March 2002

Following Haage & Partner's launch of x86 Amiga XL compatibles, Extreme Computing followed with their own version. The x86 boards are sold as high power replacements of the Commodore A1200 & A4000, based upon their similar form factor. Interestingly, the AmigaOS XL emulator does not come as standard, making these machines a questionable marketing exercise. In addition, the graphics card in these machines do not match the list of Amithlon requirements. As a result, Amithlon would only be able to run in VESA compatibility mode.
