This is also where the Vampire has disappointed me (mine is still in transit), as I was expecting it to be an accelerator in the fashion of the old turbo boards, keeping it retro, versus actually making it an entirely new computer.
The is no reason why you could not run a older version of the core so you would only have a fast CPU, more RAM and RTG if you want it. Nobody is forced to run the latest core which is likely to replace more custom chips.
