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 nearer to Amiga NG by bringing digital video with millions of colours.
Fastest Amiga CPU
Faster than a 68060 at 100MHz, capable of Next Gen workloads (watching movies, listening to digital music, etc.)
Use IDE/CF up to 11MB/s and a MicroSD card as hard drive and say goodbye to your aging floppies and old SCSI drives.
Loads of memory
Ever heard of the sentence "640K Ought to be Enough for Anyone" ? Vampire is cranking it up to 128MB.
New cores are uploaded directly from your Amiga, giving you new functionalities and performances when they hit the street.
RTG Video Driver
The driver supports from 320×240 up to 1920×1080, however, the Pixel Clock of the Vampire is limited, so you will need a TV/monitor that can cope with low refresh rates if you want to use large modes (e.g. for 1080p you'll need to run at 24Hz vertical refresh). All colour depths are available. 8, 15, 16, 24, 32bits.
Open the A500 and remove upper RF shielding. The accelerator is then plugged into the empty CPU socket once the 68000 is removed.
MicroSD slot: Current driver revision isn't able to boot from microSD.
