Well done AmigaKit
(and whoever designed it)

Does anyone have a mockup of how this will look in-situ?
Just thinking of possible clashes with other stuff plugged-into my mobo.

Here is the picture of it installed on the motherboard:

Hats off to all involved in this - great news!

(Just found out more about HighGFX - that's a great hack!)

Does it really support all listed features when it is released or is it "planned" to support listed features with "future" firmware updates, like Catweasel MK 4?

@StevenJGore:
Click the "Buy now" button on that page, perhaps? (Below description of item, on the right)

Good to see new hardware but ouch is it expensive or what. I'm sure AMigakit aren't taking an extraordinary cut on top but give volumes of Amiga sales it's getting damn expensive. Gotta be cheaper to save the money towards a clone-A in due course!

It is a bit more than I had hoped. Roughly 2x the price of an external off the shelf 16-bit scandoubler.

But it will be 100x better than any external scandoubler.

Like Toni, I too hope that it is a finished product.

Shame the design could not have become an uber-basic RTG GFX card as well

I guess you cannot have everything, too much investment me thinks.

Not 100x better than an XRGB-2.

I gotta ask what may be a stupid question here. Where does the output go? Do you have to wire up a VGA port somewhere or does it put the scan doubled/flicker fixed/vitamin infused video out the RGB port? I've read everything I can on this thing but this nugget of information eludes me.

there is a ribbon with a vga port... you must mount that on the A1200 case, preferably on the expansion port...
