A new Apollo accelerator board has been released. What are these?

Apollo Accelerators is an Amiga Classic accelerator board product line. It uses the Apollo core which is a code compatible Motorola M68K and ColdFire processor but is 3 to 4 time faster than the fastest 68060 at time. It also brings Amiga Classic near to Amiga NG by bringing digital video with millions of colours.

The Vampire V4 improves upon its predecessors in numerous ways. As always, the Amiga community always manages to keep their own computers relevant and up-to-date, if even for just a small group of users. Amazing.

Thanks for this post! I am in a similar situation. Don't own an Amiga currently but following the news closely. I think the Vampire 4 announcement is probably the most exciting news in a very long time. Sorry Amiga One!

I imagine the board to be roughly the size of a Raspberry PI. It would be awesome if we could mount it into a Kickstart A1200 case! :-)
