The best way is to do that through RetroAmi (http://retroami.com.pl) website. But You can freely order it on Amibay by declaring interest.

Could You be more specific? What do You mean?

This is a new construction from Elbox (or redesigned Mediator 4000Di). It will be definitely relased. Production of the first batch will start early novermber and should be available after 21st of november 2013.

(I think you just answered my question...but here goes anyway). I take it that this particular Mediator model (as in a Mediator for an A3000 desktop) has never been available at any time in the past? As in "Is this a new model?"

Does Mediator card is supported in Zorro II based machines? like Amiga 2000?

No, this is specifically for A3000s in the original case, as it replaces the Zorro backplane.

@ITU: Are you a formal commercial trader then? Have we given you the correct account type?

Have we given you the correct account type?I'm using my account here to buy Amiga hardware for my private collection and this is first time I'm advertising something from my e-store I'm running as a hobby rather than the way to earn money for life. If it's necessery the account type can be change. I really don't know if I'll use it for commercial trade anymore.

I've recived a sample Mediator 3000Di for test today.

Mediator fits well into doughterboard slot. Core logic card fits also very nice into Mediator doughterboard. Unlike Mediator 4000Di, in this core logic board does not touch motherboards chips. One of the core logic's capacitor just act like a distance between motherboard and core logic (see picture).

PCI cards fits well into PCI slots. Unlike in Mediator 1200 in tower case there is no chance that card will slip out from the pci slot and stop working.

I had time just to start Radeon 9200 card and set 800x600 mode in Picasso96. I have just stock WB3.1 on this Amiga so it's lack of everything :)

I'll try to test it with PCI LAN card and Spider II soon.

Here I put some photos of Mediator 3000Di.

I was testing Mediator 3000Di with stock 030/25 MHz.

I've tested Mediator with : Elbox R9200 256 MB, Elbox Spider II (with USB stick 4GB/8GB and external USB WD 60GB HDD), FastATA 4000, Buddha, BirRamPlus (256MB RAM onboard).

With all those devices this busboard works very nice. Here are some hdd and usb stick speed test with SysSpeed 2.6. I used IDE HDD Maxtor D740X-6L (PIO4), SCSI HDD IBM 4GB 50pin and USB Stick GoodRAM EDGE 4GB. Filesystems FFS i FAT95 (USB).

I think system works normal at 030/25. There is are no freezes I think P96 800x600 it's much better and faster than in PAL HiRes.

Also look at USB stick speed test - looks very nice. I put Thylacine USB for test and it was so sloooow comparing to Spider USB.

But of course more MIPS are always very welcome.

I suspect that may be due to the new way we've laid out commerial sellers' forums on AmiBay. I'll get this looked into for you.
