Aha! I remembered the name of the guy that made this from an old Picture I've seen over a.org
http://www.amiga.org/gallery/index.php?n=3094

I guess it's a new prototype which is very interesting indeed! I really hope it can get into production!

Awesome work Boboo (made a small donation for your work - keep it up!).
Thx for the link Venox. It was a nice long read \o/

Very impressive!

Can I ask whats speed the IDE achieves with the 28mhz + 2MB true fast RAM?

If you see the YouTube Video... There's a 1.6mb/s speed instead of the 0.5mb/s without it.

Could be due to software optimisation? Isn't there a fastide patch for A600?

A stock A600+no special software is capable of 0.8MB/s though, with basically any decent CF card.

1.6 MB/s is actually pretty impressive.

This is great to see.
I know people talk about the "year of the Amiga" all the time..
And I don't think (could be wrong, just my opinion) that the Amiga will overtake the desktop any time soon... ;-)

But, with the Inidivision Hardware and this and some other possibilities on the edge...

This might not be THE year of the Amiga, but it's starting out to be A GREAT year for the Amiga...

There aren't many A600's in the U.S., and I was never too bothered by that...
But with some of these things I've seen....
The A600 is looking much nicer.....

Nice to see...

Amiga will not 'overtake' any desktop ever, neither in popularity, nor in usage and of course not speed and features (for popular use of computers). Especially not in USA, where it was abandoned first of all countries, and where it's never seen even moderate support since. But I'll give your post the benefit of the doubt and say I don't really get what you mean.

That doesn't mean that more and more ex-Amiga fans aren't getting the nostalgic feeling people got for misc. earlier platforms.

Nobody will get such a nostalgic feeling for a 10 or 20 year old PC, not for a Playstation 1 or a Megadrive. But with Amiga it could be different... I don't know, what do you say?



This thing you heard, "the year of the Amiga" (I've heard it too, twice in different places, and not on EAB I might add) is probably grounded in hearing of more and more people getting their retro platform of choice up and running.

Certainly, finally there are the means to do so in style with the necessary hardware of the last years becoming available to hook up everything easily, so it could have something to do with that. (Shorthand: you can put a usable original Amiga in your living room without having to be a die-hard fan and go through a lot of hassle=basically a few months of asking on forums to set it up.)

For me, the years 1988-1990 will always be THE year of the Amiga more than any years since. But there's been a sort of vacuum now for 12-16 years, and it certainly can be a revival like for C64 the last couple of years.

Any years that it is alive depends 5% on new hardware and 95% on new software. This goes for ANY platform in the universe. For retro platforms, the numbers are a little kinder, because many are happy with rediscovering the software they remember and love, and if there are hardware means to make that happen this could give a fertile ground for new software.

Will it be available pre-built for selling?

P.S. I looked at the www.amigaportal.cz website. It looks very cool, though I can't understand a word
