Just a quick one from the Amiga 30 Years event in Amsterdam. Radzik of AMIcast has provided streams from the event through the Periscope function on Twitter. Check it here. The official stream failed several times and many couldn’t get it to work at all. Radzik saved the day for many Amiga enthusiasts, so big thanks must go out to him. 🙂
Jens Schönfeld of Individual Computers announced a new memory/accelerator card for the Amiga 500 that will cost about 130 EUR. He also mentioned two new cards for the Amiga 1200. One based on a 68020EC clocked at 28 MHz and the other a normal 68020 clocked at 16 MHz. One, or both, will contain a port/connection for an USB-adapter.
Most importantly, in my opinion, is that he said: “I will make Amiga Reloaded.” Apparently he has a huge stock of AGA-chips and can therefore make new Amiga 1200 motherboards. Woohoo! 🙂 This was great news to me and I will definitely buy one.
Check the stream here, Jens is the last one to speak: https://www.periscope.tv/w/aF6oJzE1Nzk5ODZ8Mjk2MTY2NjeEDF7yrRL6C90vKdC9irhBjRRR03tE7rZC_i6-hGwBxg==
