Hi everybody,

I just want to let you know that I found another
(probably too expensive too :-) ) board design.

Waldorf wouldn't need to produce it since you can already buy it.
Call Deskstation and ask for the "Tyne Series RISC PCs".
The board works with R4200s, R4400s and R4600s up to 200 Mhz,
supports up to 2 MB L2 cache controlled by a special chip set,
has a PCI bus plus 2 VESA and 4 ISA slots. Main Memory is up
to 256 MB using standard SIMMs.
A HAL and a ARC BIOS Prom is shipped together with the board.

Quoted from Deskstation's European OEM Price List:

R4600-100MHz 0K L2 cache:       $1760.--
R4600-133MHz 512K L2 cache:     $1910.--
R4600-133MHz 2M L2 cache:       $2530.--

The boards are the same, ie. you can later plug in
the L2 cache and move some jumpers to activate it.
Don't tell me the board is too expensive.

Cheers,
Andy
