Not sure about the FPU quality, but shipping from China is very cheap because of international postage agreements, it is basically a subsidy for China and many other countries.

My gut feeling is that won't happen. Among the people who use the Amiga I suspect most use it to rekindle the old memories rather than hoping it will someday be competitive again.

I think there...

I miss the crazy hardware addons, accelerators, add-on ram boards, external disk drives. These days you usually just buy a new machine stead of upgrading the old.

I think it is somewhere between classic and emulation. The CPU is the main chip, it was what people dreamed of back in the day, having an 030, or an 040. I think a lot of people will still prefer a...

Don't think that would ever happen unless someone starts producing 060 accelerators for almost nothing. FPGA won't cut it for a big chunk of people in my view.

Would imagine so, plus the chips are probably a fair bit harder to come by than 030's.

I'm guessing the 25mhz-40mhz 030's must be easy to get in good volumes which paves the way for occasional...

I bought one about a year ago, used to be a couple showing up each week. This is a very "liquid" Amiga accelerator. I'd guess it is perhaps the highest selling accelerator ever.
