This is awesome. So many new project for the older systems like this. I'd love to see one for the big box systems like to 3000 and 4000.

Very nice! Will have to buy one more A500 now ;o)

Zetr0 10 March 2017 10:10

Signman 10 March 2017 14:33

Take video of the Citadel/Cytadela. Best FPS working on A500/68000.

Oh man! I loved that game back in the day, even more than Doom.

these are cool defo buy one.

ptyerman 11 March 2017 06:37

Is a version of this planned for the A2000? Even a adaptor board that plugs into the CPU slot to accept this card would be great!

The Wicher 500i fits in CPU socket of the A2000.

Very nice, will be watching this with interest. Love the Amiga scene developing so much great new hardware.

paul1981 09 May 2017 14:12

Brilliant stuff. I'm going to be keeping an eye on this one!

Akira 09 May 2017 18:05

Where can one get one of these? How much does it cost?
Can you use it without populating CPU and ram sockets, just as an IDE interface?

As you can see in picture, to install it you need to remove original CPU.
