I think if the vampire got PCIe, then support for 2D/3D cards should be limited to ATI: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_and_open-source_graphics_device_driver#ATI.2FAMD Mainly 3D would be relevant IMO, since SAGA could handle all 2D tasks or maybe SAGA could auto switch to a passthrough version w...

I think (hope) :) that the stand-alone Vampire V4 should fit inside a pi-top for example, in order to create an Amiga laptop :)

Vampire V4 is much Faster than any singleboard computer with UAE by a long shot. If they select an even Faster FPGA, then it would require the might if the very latest intel processors in order to match the speed using uae.... The current one should be Faster than most highend systems today, runnin...

Maybe, one day. As with ASIC, none of that will happen if V4 its not supported. Just like V4 was made possible by V1 and V2. So, I have planned my Sys For 2018 with Amedia. http://www.apollo-core.com/knowledge.php?b=5¬e=8140&z=XtFdux And I am looking forward to it. Not a PC killer, but my best A...

Would There be an extreme version of the stand alone using the Fastest possible FPGA? Or something like ARRIA 10? "the VAMPIRE V4 they are expecting performance of around what would be a 240-300 MMz 68060. If they went with a more expensive FPGA (ARRIA 10) they would expect performance of a 500-600 ...

To find someone with the time to write a generic linux driver wrapper for various other operating systems like amigaOS etc ? This has been done a number of times using a thin Linux host, most notably for Amithlon. Gunnar is the person to ask about microcode - you can catch him on IRC. thanks for th...

A standalone system is very much planned but this will use the Apollo core in an FPGA just as the current accelerators do. I don't know to what degree microcode on Intel CPUs can be modified, it's an interesting idea but could end up being a distraction if the Apollo team themselves were to start l...

I read somewhere on an Atari forum that a possible stand alone version is planned. From what I understand about modern CPU's, it is possible to use microcode to translate instructions, I wonder, would it be possible to write new microcode for the newest intel processors, thus enabling them to execut...
