    Default New GBAPII++ RTG-ZorroII graphic cards

    Hello!

    I proudly present the new RTG-graphics board for all Bigbox-Amigas and the Amiga500: The GBAPII++ is now commercially available at kryoflux (<-link). We ship worldwide and VAT applies only for EU-countries (customs fees must be paid by the customer).
    The GBAPII++ is a ZorroII-card featuring the fast Cirrus GD5434 graphics chip and 2MB of video-ram. An automatic monitor-switch between an external VGA-source (e.g. flickerfixer) and the RTG-graphics is integrated. The card is developed, tested, approved and manufactured in Germany. The hardware-layout is open source at https://github.com/MHeinrichs/A500-GraKa (<-link). Compared to a PicassoII+ board this card 76% faster on a A2630 on the importaint RectFill()-function in P96-Speed. Further performance-results can be seen here (<-link). The development and support can be found in the German a1k.org-forum here (<-link)and here(<-link).

    The minimum system requirements are Kichstart3.1, a 68020-CPU and 4MB of FastRAM and 2MB free in the ZorroII address space. The maximum screen resolutions are 16.7M –color up to 800x600, 64k-colors up to 1024x768 and 8bit color up to 1280x1024. All modes are non-interlaced with a minimum refresh rate of 60 Hz.

    The card is currently using the PiccoloSD64 driver from the P96-rtg solution. The P96-driver is shareware and not bundled with this board. A separate license for this driver should be purchased. However CybergraphiX support is in development and will be released, too.

    The Amiga500 version is a bit special: First, no housing is provided. A community based 3D-printing solution is planned. Second it needs an internal >68020 turbo card and 2MB free ZorroII address space. Since only a few Amiga500 will meet this requirement, all Amiga 500-verisions are BTO (build-to-order). Any ZorroII-version can be modified to an Amiga500-version but not the other way round.

    Best Regards Kryoflux & Matthias

    @Admins: I'm not 100% sure, if this post is violating the Amibay-rules or not. Its morte than an add, but since kryoflux is not listet as an "comemrcial shop" I see no other option. Payment&shipping will be done outside this forum via the kryoflux-site. If Im doing something wrong, please correct me!
