Currently phase 5 digital products of Germany is the only company close to releasing PowerPC ugprades for Amigas. The boards are based on a dual CPU concept to ensure 100% compatibility with existing applications and of course the Amiga Operating System. Software wishing to take advantage of the super-fast PowerPC cpus must be re-compiled. Please look at the table below for information on specific PowerUP configurations:

In addition, phase 5 will offer a special graphics card for the Cyberstorm PPC models based on a powerful Permedia graphics chip. The card will connect to a special expansion connector on the CyberStorm and thus provide super-fast access between the PowerPC cpu and the Permedia chip. Of course CyberGraphX PPC-enhanced will ship with the CyberStorm PPC cards. For additional information please visit phase 5's CyberStorm PPC Graphics page.
