Don't think so. XRGB1 was 18bit, but XRGB2 is full 24bit. Plus the output is much better than any Amiga specific external scan-doubler. The fact that it works with just about every other old console (at least any that can output RGB) is a plus.

Bottom line is I don't think you can say for certain that the Indivision is 100x better until we see the real product.

I don't think the XRGB2 can do 50Hz, hence it depends on your definition of "better" if it is actually "better" than Amiga specific scandoublers which usually leave the refresh rate of PAL at 50Hz giving more smooth animation. 24bit would be a plus of course as would compatibility with more LCDs if you swing that way.

The picassoiv scandoubler gives much sharper results due to it being internal compared with external (like the ez-vga plus I have), and I would expect the new indivision to be just the same.

The only thing the new scandoubler can't do is 100Hz/120Hz or set the PAL/NTSC vscan rate to whatever you desire like the PicassoIV can. I would have liked it to be able to set whatever mode conversion you like instead of a fixed scan rate multiplier. I.e. so you can get exactly 60Hz or 70Hz for all modes if you like.

External, possibly. Internal, no, because any external scandoubler converts the Amiga's analogue signal back to digital. Internal scandoublers work directly with the original digital signal, so there's no digital-to-analogue-to-digital conversion quality loss.

Out of interest would this device work in a CD32?

I think the only thing that may be an issue would be space inside the 32... although I don't see why it wouldn't work?

Interesting...yep it might do, but without access to monitor prefs it might be a bit limited. Also with S-Video ouput as standard, all you need is a cheap VGA box to display a CD32 on a modern monitor already

Check the website for a date update my friend.

Production run is completed and the boards are going into QA this weekend, Amigakit expect units on the 17th, they are being shipped from Germany.

Sorry to be the bearer of Bad news but it's only a week's delay and they will be fully soak tested & QA approved.

It will be worth it guys,

I spoke to Matthew at Amigakit who gave me the news & the run has gone really well. The depth of QA testing too gives real assurance of a quality product.

Thanks to AmigaKit for their excellent support.

We over-estimated the delay- I have just been talking to Jens on the telephone.

All of our Indivision AGA 1200 units have passed QA, they are packed and will be shipped imminently to us.

Don't miss out - order now:
