True of course, but it seems to me some ppl are selling their Blizz 1260s ahead of time, so that there wont be 200 of them for sale once the V1200 does come out ;-) Right now, they still hold a decent value.

Anyhoo, the time scale is a bit longer than that isn't it, the initial target was to have prototype of the Amiga Reloaded ready in Q1 2016 then move forward from there, which to me sounds we'd seen the reloaded mobo after the summer even if things were on schedule. After the summer, is the time-frame I'm expecting more V1200 news our way ;-)

I have a feeling that the Amiga market can soak up an unlimited amount of accelerators. There are no leftover stocks. All previous A1200 ACAs have been sold. No more ACA 620 since... recently I guess. I checked AmigaKit's page yesterday and they are no more. There are only 1221s available (and they are the latest models) and limited edition 1233s (on Individual homepage).

With new mobos there will be more hungry mouths (expansion ports) to feed So there is no rivalry between accelerators. We will buy everything

I actually share this point of view I think you are right. People harvest anything for Amigas nowadays. Just by looking at myself the last year or so and how much Amiga stuff I've been harvesting from both the Norwegian market, ebay, friends, Amigakit and Amigastore. And I always want more. It's like my love for Amiga stuff is even stronger now than it was back in 1991.

I'm hoping to get one of these new boards if and when they become available, I would like to also try and get a Vampire1200 if they also become available and work ok with it.

I'm still keeping my blizzard 1230 mkiv and blizzard 1260 as want my two 1200's to be kind of original even if they will be slower.

Add me to the list for both. I'm keeping an eye on the boards and can wait as long as it takes

Hello

Are there some news about "Amiga Reloaded" project? Or project died?
Sorry for question, but it's worrying that there are no news about this project.

AFAIK, nothing new.
It would be very easy for Jens to come here and give us an update, but I have seen none.

http://wiki.icomp.de/wiki/Amiga_reloaded
Has not been updated in a year either.
There are ppl in the german forums that might know more though.
Not sure if this whole Vampire situation made him rethink some business decisions...

No news that I'd want to publish, and some news that I am not even allowed to publish yet. Please be patient - working on a news item that will also affect this project in a positive way.

Thanx for explaining. Still very much looking forward to this ;-)

Edit: (As long as it works with Vampire 1200, that is :-) )

Why do you want to use a vampire 1200 with a new reloaded motherboard anyway? The vampire will just downgrade the rest of the poor amiga to a keyboard/mice/joystick input device. The chips on the motherboard will be "unused" as they will be moved in to the fpga core of the vampire. Better to wait for the standalone version with its own keyboard and joystick ports.

Will not drag this too deep down off topic by discussing a potential future standalone version of Vampire which may or may not come within 3 years. :-)
But if you must know, I want to keep my current A1200 +060 unchanged. Meanwhile Im waiting for my new A1200 €200 special edition case + V1200, so basically, Im one mobo short. And since the case (+keys) and the Vamp are brand new it seems fitting to use a brand new mobo and not some 23+ years old thing I get off ebay.

Yep I don't see much point in buying a new Amiga motherboard and then plugging a Vampire into it.

You might as well just go stand-alone if you want an FPGA Amiga,

Kindly point me to the place where I can get the standalone version then ;-)
At least I can see that the V1200 is officially planned here...

Ok, who again has been the one who said say the "V"-word and thus brought this discussion into another nonsense-spiral?
