Macintosh 68000 based machines

Post by ericdc30 » Fri 17 Feb 2017 02:53

Hi Everyone,

What are the technical challenges in getting the Vampire 500 V2 working in a Macintosh Plus?

Also how does the Vampire 500 V2 differ from the host perspective from a real 68000 processors on other platforms than the Amiga?

The main problem is to make the vampire fit physicaly into the mac itself. A mac + i not so big and I doubt that there is enough place upon the motherboard to fit another card on the top of th 68000. I can be wrong, I don't actually seen the layout inside this machine.

Are you saying aside from the form factor it should actually function?

By the way it looks like the form factor might not be an issue. http://appletothecore.me/files/mac_plus ... pgrade.php
