Subject:  The S.A.M. CPU Bd. system with new USB.

STOP! Before you swap that S.A.M. system CPU Bd. into another game!

  • After almost 6 years and 17 game titles later, the S.A.M. CPU Bd. # 520-5246-00 will no longer be used in future new game releases.

 

  • This change to the new S.A.M. CPU Bd. with new USB was due to limited availability of the U49 USB processor IC.

 

  • Although the new and original S.A.M. CPU boards look identical, the S.A.M. CPU Bd. with new USB is not backwards compatible with the original S.A.M. CPU Bd.

 

  • Transformers (Pro) and all future (Pro) games will use the new S.A.M. CPU Bd. with new USB # 520-5246-02.

 

  • Please view the Board Type Table below!
