If you have an Amiga 600 you want to upgrade, then you’re in luck. The Vampire V2 turbo-card is due for release soon, and it’ll make your 600 faster than it has ever been before. Please have a look at the specs below. The information is from the Apollo Forum:
VAMPIRE V2 (A600):
The Vampire V2 is a CPU and Memory Upgrade for the Amiga 600. It comes with some extra features on top.
- APOLLO CPU: Apollo CPU is a new 64bit core which is backwards compatible with 680×0 CPU-cores. According to AMIGA AIBB, Apollo plus Vampire provides the performance of an 68030 @ 500 MHz
- 128 MB Fastmem: 128 MB of Fastmem which which deserves this name. According to AIBB memtest and AMIGA bus-speed, this fastmem is the fastest AMIGA fastmem ever. Its even faster than the memory on several PowerPC Neo Amigas.

- Digital Video Out: Supporting up to 24bit truecolor and FULLHD 1920×1080 resolution

Wow, that is some list! 🙂 Look at those features, and not least the speed! Do I want one? Yes. Do I have an Amiga 600? No. Hopefully it’ll be out for the Amiga 1200 as well in the future. If not, then I’ll get an Amiga 600 to play around with. 😉
Anyone reading this interested in purchasing the Vampire V2? If yes, what will you be using it for? Games, productivity, showing off demos? 🙂 I’d be using it for all those reasons, hehe.
