Welcome!

I was in London last year - trickier to find Amiga stuff than I had hoped, but fun town. Enjoy your nostalgia trip (and new hobby for life)!

I'm under the impression the 8372b has to have an external clock circuit to genlock which would (presumably) be on a Megachip adapter but not if you just swap-out the Agnus chip (the appeal of the...

I've just heard however that the 2mb Agnus doesn't...

It's the first time we have seen the potential for new generation of Amiga performance without jumping off to a new non-compatible architecture (like Power PC or x86).

That's my guess as to why...

Super Denise and screens.

Just got myself a super-Denise and I'm wondering about those hires 'productivity' screen modes - can they display on a 1084? Or a regular VGA screen? (Or some impossible-to-find 15khz display?)
