150€ is nice price. I would like to know what kind of speed this offer. Bad that it doesn't have a 64mb ram, as 32mb is not enough for some proggies.

Connecting to Amiga keyboard is quite neat. 32 MB should be enough for the cores it offers, certainly is on MiSTer. I guess the most important question is how mature the whole thing is...if it's another WIP then I'd advise caution before buying.

MiST got quite a bit faster recently thanks to Slingshot's work on the CPU cache - it's not far behind MiSTer now. There's still a little bit of scope for improvement in write performance but apart from that it is indeed maxed out now.

It's the same FPGA as MiST and claims to run all MiST cores - so there shouldn't be any danger of it turning out to be a deadend product with only a handful of cores available.

MiST is at 11 MIPS...

It would be an (almost) perfect replacement board but why is there no hdmi output ?

Because doing HDMI correctly is expensive, and doing HDMI on the cheap is both difficult and legally dubious.

This looks like a nice product, and it's at a nice price point - but it isn't much more than a re-spin of the existing MiST design. The advantage of that is that it can run the existing MiST cores, of which there are many - but the price of that compatibility is that it's not going to bring anything revolutionary to the table.

It's selling point is definitely the Amiga case/keyboard compability. It might be ~50E cheaper than MiST, but that's not far from MiSTer itself.

I'm kind of tempted because I actually have one busted A500 lying around. I could sell the mobo and fit this in the case. But...do I really need another Amiga?

Here's a (slow) video showing the board in an A500 case.

Proper reviews in English shouldn't be too long I guess ;-)

Does it have to be used in a a500 case or can it be used stand alone (without a500 keyboard)?

I don't see why not. It just looks like an off the shelf microcontroller module plugs into the board to handle the conversion of the Amiga 500 keyboard to USB protocol then loops the USB out of the module to an internal (when housed in an A500) USB port on the motherboard. This seems to be just a MiST with a rearrangement of the ports and a keyboard converter module.

I have also seen this Video (not bad) but I hoped to see somthing regarding usage and compatibility to the MIST and of course as an Amiga replacement board.
