    Default Vampire 600 V2 - Amiga 600 FPGA accelerator Pre-order

    PRE-ORDERS ARE CLOSED FOR NOW
    >>>Kickstart 3.1 upload info<<<
    >>>Update February 28, 2016<<<
    New site up: http://www.apollo-accelerators.com
    On the mentioned site download latest Picasso96 drivers and LATEST CORE.

    >>>Update January 29, 2016<<<
    Some users could have problems to attach Vampire to their Amiga600 motherboard and they could need to polish their PLCC68 socket some more to make tight connection to the old MC68K CPU. Also you will need to make sure that MC68K contacts are clean.This is discovered and kindly shared by gseb.
    Just take sand paper and polish the socket till it reach the metal contact (fine sand paper). After I adjusted the cut for the resistor.

    In first version of Vampire 600 I was unable to produce enough to satisfy demand and because of that in total about 80 cards are produced and sent. This time I will try to produce as many is needed. But first I need to know exactly how much ppl want to have the board. Also last time I have lost so much time because I needed to wait 45 days for money from paypal to get to my bank account so I can use it to buy parts, produce board and then send it to someone who ordered it. Best option now is to pay in front and then wait for the card. That is the only way I can have money to finance this properly. Price stays the same 90Eur + shipping and for Europe is about 5Eur. For other continents should be about 10Eur.

    Features compared to old version:
    1. 4 layer PCB, much smaller 50mmX100mm
    2. Slightly bigger FPGA, this time BGA
    3. Better voltage regulation

    What you get:
    1. Emulated MC86K or MC68020 based on available cores capable anywhere from 2Mips to 50Mips(if final version of Phoenix is able to fit to this FPGA, we will see)
    2. 64 MB of FastRam

    Urgent update:
    Design has been changed: Instead 10K LE FPGA we go with 40K LE FPGA who costs lot more.
    From March 29, 2015 price of Vampire 600 V2 is changed to 120Eur. Shipping for Europe 5Eur, rest of the world 10Eur.


    What you get:
    1. Emulated MC86K or MC68020 based on available cores capable anywhere from 2Mips to 300Mips.
    2. 64 MB of FastRam
    3. New cores will be uploaded directly from Amiga, without using USB blaster.

    ETA Q3 or Q4 of 2015, but it could be much sooner.

    For more information's about what is all about please visit www.majsta.com

    So if you are interested, write here, then send money to imajstorovic at yahoo.com and I will put you on the list. Sorry for asking money in the front but like I said this is the only way for me to produce this and to know exactly how much to produce. Please when you send a payment PM me with your paypal mail address.

    Keep it RAW

    Why are you not using a FPGA you are 100% sure that all future core will fit inside, even if it cost more....
    I think users will prefer to give some more money for this.

    Do you want to solder the boards yourself ?

    Because this is for A600 how much performance do you really need there if there is no VGA or HDMI integrated on the card to support them. For other Amigas this or next year we will have bigger FPGA used.

    A600 with A604n+indivision ecs is VGA ? I never tried this myself but there is picasso96 driver support.
    More speed, better this should work ?

    Any chance of getting this or something similar for the A500?

    @gseb
    Let's not bring this into discussion please, this is pre-order thread. It is not easy like this, yes you have VGA there but this has lot of limitations since is not directly connected to accelerator. It just uses slow Amiga bus so transfer rate is way too slow. This will be solved on other accelerators by adding HDMi directly to card where transfer rate will be 200 times higher than on regular Amiga bus. Since this card don't have HDMI or something like that enough said.

    I support your very nice projects. Payment sent.

    A last question : Is it not possible to implement the hdmi on the A600 V2 board ? If the A500 can get it, why not the A600....

    The A600 is the almost only one that has no GC solution..... Even the A500 will have one with the Matze's reworked PII. I think this would be very nice for the A600 because there is no other GC possibility and will probably never.... Something like your card + hdmi is probably the only chance to have GC on A600.
    In fact, because of this, this is the A600 who need it the most !
