Good new indeed!

I wonder how many accelerator designs could be resurrected for small-scale reruns?

Dunno... GVP have recently sold some 4Mbyte GVP SIMMS to SoftHut who are now selling them on at the beastly price of $35 each!

I would prefer to buy VIA Amigakit rather than wait for something to arrive or not arrive from this site...

Am I right in thinking that GVP are based in the USA, therefore aren't subject to the ROHS-compliance issues DCE would be..?

If so that's a bugger - no re-runs of the really sort-after accelerators. I can imagine it makes economic sence to do re-runs of old designs when there's enough demand but not if a redesign is required...

Great Valley Products - GVP-M

I owned a Spectrum RTG card and thought it ruled. Just as good as the better known cards I think. Also I think I read somewhere that the new GVP cards can take 72pin simms.

New Great Valley Products Announced

Hi all,

I found this information:

http://www.softhut.com/cgi-bin/test/...=1014812_61311

If this is really new stuff...I have my doubts but that's goods for those you still want to upgrade their Migs!

As far as I remember GVP products always needed expensive, hard to find memory modules for expansion, making them not a very good buy in my opinion.
Best to invest that kind of money in a Blizzard, Apollo or Microbotics.

you should also keep in mind that all the apollos or blizzards are over 10th year of their life time now though the GVP stuff is new.
