So far, they are only carrying the Vampire v2 for the Amiga 500’s but that is probably the biggest market as there were more 500’s sold than the other models. Of course, they soldout very fast on the first batch but don’t be surprised to see more available soon. Target price is about $350USD when I last looked.
Not bad considering this is the fastest Amiga Accelerator (better than a 68060 or even PPC 603/604). And it comes with a special version of the AGA chipset (SuperAGA/SAGA), and a Picasso96 driver so RTG on the lowly 500 running superfast!
Good job Team Apollo, Majasta and AmigaKit!
Here’s a demo of the Hollywood development program running on the Amiga 500 with the Vampire 500 accelerator. This was from AmiWest 2016. Looks good!
Here’s a video of the Vampire 500 board on an Amiga 500, surfing the web with the latest Netsurf 3.6 by Arti (there is another Netsurf 3.6 by Chris, author of the OS4.x version of Netsurf)
So, I saw this video from a link about the latest version of Netsurf 3.6 (the 68k SDL version found –> here <–). I’m a fan of this browser and encourage everyone with a classic machine to try it out.
The test video shows the author using this on an Amiga 500 that has the Vampire 2 accelerator and a plipbox (ethernet over parallel port).
Looks great to me for such an old machine. It appears to do a lot of up-front communication, downloading and conversion to mpeg1 to get the job done, but hey, who would have thought a classic Amiga could do that?
