Guess you could get the standalone and put it into an A600?
That would be a step too far for me, having to pull the guts out of an A600 just to use the case :(

Find one with a dead motherboard :D

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 MHz 68060, which running at that speed would be faster than a top speed 5GHz PC running WINUAE (emulated). So using a guessimate, you can guess the FPGA they are using (Cyclone V) would run at half the speed of a ARRIA 10, "

The ultimate would be to license 7nm fabrication like nvidia does and thus have a 7nm based Vampire :-)

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.

And I am looking forward to it. Not a PC killer, but my best Amiga so far.

ETA Q1 018 !!!

---------------------------------------
Hard side
---------------------------------------

V4 Standalone board as heart and soul
CPU 080 about 100Mhz SAGA/RTG/AMMX
512MB DDR3 RAM
Team made case or Lorianos artwork
DB9 Amiga Mouse
Lorianos X500 USB keyboard, Amiga keys, Serbian layout
Fast IDE DVD RW
Fast SATA to IDE SSD
Fast SD Card
HDMI Cable
DB9 Kempston
LAN port free ;-)
Nice HDMI monitor/TV with speakers
Tracer 2.1 speakers if possible to connect

---------------------------------------
Soft side
---------------------------------------

AmigaOS 3.9, AROS m68k, FreeMint, AmiKit X if possible, MacOS Classic via Fusion, Deb 4 m68k if possible (there is some generic MMU-less kernel out there that just might work!)

Scala, Payback, Candy Factory, Freespace (yup we need some Hype sw!), Hoolywood, CygnusED, Photogenics, Art Effect

Who needs Personal Paint?

Ok :)

Well it makes sense, that you will not be able to use the very latest FPGA's, if the cost at the same time is also to be as low as possible :)

I am tempted to get both a stand alone Vampire to put in a pi-top to create a vampire laptop and the version that can fire up under my A1200 :)

I heard that V4 will have a good amount of chip ram as well as ethernet build-in? that is good news indeed :)

I read this
http://www.apollo-core.com/index.htm?page=products

and see that the A500 version of Vampire V4 has ethernet, but no build-in WIFI.

will the stand alone version (and maybe the A1200 version) of V4 feature build-in WIFI? How would WIFI even be handled in workbench 3.9 ?

on the other hand, there options for using WIFI through a LAN port, like for example using a pi3 to connect to WIFI and then letting it share its connection through ethernet to the vampire V4. That would also open up for stuff like maybe a VNC connection from the vampire V4 to the pi3

I often dream of an Amiga NG system, but sadly, my skills with Workbench configuration are not very good, I never did manage to get a PCMCIA netcard working in my A1200 nor did I manage to get a DVD or CD-rom drive working with it. I have a DVD kit for it that I will try out when I get some time for it... maybe my next vacation, who knows?

But the Vampire V4 DOES seem to have sufficient speed to justify getting the label of AmigaNG in my opinion, since it allows an old Amiga to gain a speed that makes it possible to use it for all the same tasks that you would use a PC for (except the very latest high demanding 3D AAA games) ;)

Only thing that would makes this project even more awesome, would be to have an additional FPGA that is configured to be a PPC accellerator, so a Vampire system could run AmigaOS 4.x as well as AmigaOS versions prior to 4.x (3.x and below) :)

Unless it is somehow possible to add this to various vampire models without losing 68k speed :)

---

very exciting that the project is moving forward and I hope the V4 will sell really well...
the Amiga has certainly risen again! :) long live Amiga :)

Awesome news! Can't wait till the Vampire V4 for Amiga 1200 is ready!

I am seriously interested in the A1200 and A600 versions... preferably both. A stand-alone option sounds extremely intriguing as well.

What about the Battery backed up clock for the standalone version?

The Vampire would likely use NTP to set up the clock according to the network instead of a battery.
