I won't discuss with a moderator who has shown his anti-Vampire bias over years of "moderation" and now even explicitly through commentary. Delete your moderator account and make EAB a better place.

The V500 is many times faster than any ACA and has a networking extension that reaches something about 2MB/s network throughput. Plus it is internal.

Personally I would always prefer an accelerator that entirely resides inside the Amiga. If it has a magnitude more power than any ACA like the V500 does, even better.

The Amiga should have had X-Wing. That should have been possible on moderately accelerated Amigas. It could have made analogue joysticks and harddisks popular in the Amiga-world.

There never was an 040 at 50MHz. Also, those CPUs were ridiculously expensive. I think the real problem wasn't the high end but rather sticking to the 7MHz 68000 and 16 bits for seven years.
