just been looking at the pictures of the vampire500V2+ and the video of the auto chip placing/soldering machines doing their thing; and remembering the pictures that kipper put up of the vampire600 of the batchs of cards he had going out, plus seeing numbers like 2000+ pre orders being mentioned..

now. i'm not saying that you guys are creating a new "platform" to compete with say a raspberry pi, but seeing a post on amiga.org for a game on aminet that "requires a 68080" and the question of "does this need a vampire card to run?" having been asked, i think we're on the cusp of something here.

or am i just reading too much into this? :lol:

how many people /cards do we have out in the wild? :?: 8-)

If the info is out there, I'd be interested in knowing :)

I can't tell if thats sarcasm or actually 2393... :?

Which would be a bloody amazing figure if its true.

I thought it was around 500 odd.

It was based on the vampire orders queue

Ah, i thought that was the email list, not a list of pre-orders.

Much, much bigger than i thought.

Which is good.

Hi darksun9210,

IF production could meet demand, they could sell AT LEAST 10,000 by the end of 2018, is my gut felling......

Especially, this is guaranteed if the standalone uses an Arria 10 and has 1 or preferably TWO gigabytes of RAM!!!!!

I am certain that some will get 2 or 3 of them.

Lower the price and the numbers would be MUCH higher still!!!!!!

At 10,000, new software will start flowing, maybe attracting still more users!!!

Amiga is BACK!

wow, 2620+! this is bonkers! :D

I'm just worried about how the team are holding up. Is there anything we can do to help? send beer? make packing boxes?

I'm not really in the market for "another machine" so a stand alone isn't going to interest me. I certainly don't need another PC-like box machine taking up space around the house.

but max out my existing A1200 machines and you got me. I'm already putting money aside for three V1200's.
