After the big success of the Vampire 600 V2 and Vampire 500 V2+, Apollo Team is proud to announce their next generation FPGA device: the Vampire V4.

The Vampire V4 is made with a standard “one design to fit them all” and comes in three flavors depending on customer need:
  • The Vampire V4 Standalone System
  • The Vampire V4 for Amiga Classic compatible with
    • Amiga 1000/500/2000/CDTV
    • Amiga 600 with kippa’s adapter (if produced)
  • The Vampire V4 for Amiga 1200
This new Vampire V4 packs many upgraded specifications and brings Amiga Classic systems to another new performance paradigm thanks to its new Altera Cyclone 5 A5 FPGA and fast DDR3 memory.

The Vampire V4 standalone system will be a complete new Amiga system powered by the 68080 CPU core and the complete SAGA chipset (AGA compatible).

Vampire V4 is powered by:
  • FPGA : Altera Cyclone V A5 (77k LE, 28nm technology)
  • RAM : 512MB DDR3 (up to 1GB/s)
And supports:
  • FastIDE with 40/44-pin connectors
  • Digital Video-out up to 720p@60Hz
  • Dual Kickstart-flashrom (for safety)
  • MicroSD Storage
Certification: Vampire V4 is CE, WEEE and RoHS compliant

Wow, how is apollo team dealing with orders? Read PDF from looks of it, if you have expressed interest you will have choice to change order to v4 for Amiga or standalone version.

Or order from your favourite Amiga reseller.

What happened to HDMI?
What about 1920x1080 resolution???

RAM is kind of restrictive, but I'd rather have 512 Megs RAM up to 1 GB/s, than 1 GB RAM up to 512MB/s!!!

13. Digital Video Output
there you have your HDMI 1920x1080 or maybe even more if it got a better "GFX card" but its enough (it might be a display-port or other port. but most likely HDMI port)

...and trust me. on amiga. 512mb is a HUGE amount of memory. i cant get rid ofmy 256mb ram on my BPPC without forcing it. by downloading a iso to ram etc..

And who is in line for the vampire 500 and 600 V2 can opt for V4? What will be the price?
